Four Irish Beauty Brands You Need To Know About

Four Irish Beauty Brands You Need To Know About

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to all our Irish Glossies! To celebrate Ireland and its rich heritage, I’ve compiled a list of the four need-to-know Irish beauty brands out there. From makeup to fake tan, and skincare to spa treatments, these are their must-have products

Blank Canvas Cosmetics And Their Award-Winning Makeup Brushes

If you’re a big makeup fan, you’ll probably remember this award-winning Irish cosmetics brand from our ‘All I Want’ Limited Edition box. That’s right! Blank Canvas are the creators of the gorgeous burnt toffee eyeshadow palette that featured in the edit.

Beyond this palette though, Blank Canvas have an amazing range of makeup products, from contours and foundations, to lipsticks and mascaras. Mostly though, they’re recognised for their professional makeup brushes. They have over 150 styles to choose from!

Personally, I like the 5-brush travel set. It includes a brow brush and spoolie, two blending brushes for an on-point eyelook, and two buffer brushes for contour, highlighter and blush. It’s ideal to take on holiday!

Skinician And Their Anti-Ageing Skincare

For the skincare lovers out there, meet one of the best Irish skincare brands: Skinician. Founded by Irish mother/daughter duo Hilary McMurray and Shelley Martin, Skinician offers a range of effective products that are suitable for all skin types.

This time of year though, nothing beats their Advanced Time Delay Day Cream SPF 30. Packed full of hydrating and protecting ingredients, including hydronic acid and vitamin E, this cream revives dull skin and promotes a younger-looking complexion. Plus, it includes an SPF which is a daily essential for the sunnier months ahead!

If you want to give the brand a quick try before fully investing in their products, I’d recommend their Revitalising Discovery Kit. It contains a cleanser, toner and moisturiser that will make your skin look and feel healthier.

Cocoa Brown And Their Amazing Fake Tan

Let’s face it, fake tan is a makeup bag essential when you live in the UK. Marissa Carter knew that, seized the opportunity and set up her own tanning brand Cocoa Brown. Since its launch in 2012, this self-tanning brand has pretty much reached cult beauty status – and it’s no surprise why!

The One Hour Original Medium Self-tanner is a real crowd-pleaser. Easy to apply using a tanning mitt, it will give a stunning, even and streak-free cocoa brown tan. Oh and, as far as tanning products go, it actually smells quite nice (it’s got a floral Tahititan Gardenia fragrance!).

This Irish beauty brand was even endorsed on Twitter by Kylie Jenner!

VOYA Organic Beauty And Their Traditional Seaweed Treatments

Did you know that seaweed bathing is a 300-year-old tradition in Ireland? Well, the Irish beauty brand VOYA brings this indigenous spa treatment straight to your home!

Their Lazy Days Seaweed Bath is the ultimate way to recreate the relaxing experience! Simply soak the seaweed and sea salt into a hot bath and all its soothing and moisturising properties will be released into the water. It will help repair your skin, prevent the signs of ageing and reduce the appearance of cellulite. All you need to do is sit back, relax and let it work its magic.

Alternatively, their Softly Does It Hydrating Body Lotion is formulated with hand-harvested organic Irish seaweed to soften, soothe and hydrate your skin. It’s a winner!
