She's Irish fashion's darling of 2015, so all eyes were always going to be on Pippa O'Connor's maternity style after announcing her second pregnancy.
The model turned blogger (30) stepped out with husband Brian Ormond for the Keith Duffy Foundation Charity Ball at Powerscourt Hotel on Saturday night and turned heads with her elegant look.
The alice + olivia navy gown added a winter twist to her nude dress at this year's VIP Style Awards , topped off with a smokey makeup look. The expectant mum shared last week that he would be collaborating once again with Blank Canvas Cosmetics to release a Christmas version of successful 'Pippa palette'.
The Irish cosmetics company teamed up with Pippa to release a limited edition eyeshadow palette earlier this year and the festive xxxx includes the palette and a set of makeup brushes.
And while she was sporting a dramatic look last night, she says she prefers to "less is more" approach.
“I think sometimes we over complicate things with make-up,” Pippa said. “We think we need to have 20 products on us when we really don’t. Keep everything to a minimum. Don’t overdo it on tan and hair extensions. Take your time doing your tan the night before but make sure to use a new tanning mitt – throw out any old ones!
“If you don’t have much time to get ready for a party, you can use a black pencil eyeliner to create a smoky eye. Put it on very roughly near the corner of the eyes then use a smudging brush to smudge it out and you’ve instantly created a night-time look with just eyeliner pencil.
"It’s so quick and easy to do. Then just apply your mascara, lipstick and setting powder to keep your foundation in place for the night.”
