Today is Orange is the New Black day! Have you called in a cheeky sick day to binge watch the comedy drama Netflix show? Or are you waiting until the evening for a night of cancelling plans and in-front-of-the-laptop vegging? The entire IMAGE.ie office is committed fans of the story of Piper, an ordinary-on-the-surface gal who finds herself behind bars after a misadventure from her early twenties catches up with her ideal existence.

If you ever wondered how all the characters manage to look so fab in an imaginary prison – hello Alex’s killer eyeliner – then beauty vlogger Jamie Greenberg is here to shed the light on just how you can manage to hold onto your beauty regimen when your liberty is in the hands of the government.

Just goes to show there is a lot of dye in our food.
