The Spring Tag!

26 September 2014

I was tagged by the absolutely lovely Melanie from MELANIFACE  (her blog is amazing btw, so make sure you go have a read!) to do the Autumn Tag, but since us Aussie's in the southern hemisphere have long passed Autumn, I decided to change it a little and make this the Spring tag instead. Now, I'm not going to lie, I'm more of a winter gal', so spring and summer make me a little squeamish. Give me a list of things I don't like about the warmer months and we'll be here forever, but to throw a little positivity into the mix, today I'm going to talk about the things I about spring and summer.

Favourite Drugstore/Highstreet Eyeshadows!

11 September 2014

We're back with my most popular series of "Drugstore/Highstreet" products! I say this all the time, but you can find the most incredible products at the drugstore, and these days, low prices does not equal low quality. Sure, as we live in Australia we still have to pay pretty large numbers for "affordable" makeup, but at least you know that the option is available to you! Today I'll be talking about eyeshadows. Most peoples makeup looks aren't complete without them, and while I love my Urban Decay and NARS, I still find myself reaching towards my more cheaper options every once in a while.

University Essentials!

9 September 2014

If I do a flashback to last week, then you would see me pulling my hair out of frustration because I was so stressed out. University can really take a toll on you, which is why it's important to stay organised, and under control so you're not doing things in the last minute (which can jeopardise your GPA, which, let's face it, none of us want). I decided to a do a university essentials post to help you out, if you're currently in the same situation I was last week.

August Favourites!

3 September 2014

August, why did you have to leave so soon? I'm actually really bummed that winter is over, because it is my favourite season, and now I have to wait till next year to experience hot chocolate, chunky scarves, and not to mention, staying cozy in big blankets all day. But I like to look on the bright side, so goodbye dehydrated skin, goodbye gross hands and feet, and goodbye to my eczema (which has caused me a lot of pain in these past few months). You may notice that there is a skincare theme going on in this months favourites, and that's because my skin really played up these past few months, but thanks to these products, it is now under control!

A Night Out Makeup Look!

1 September 2014

Confession: I'm not someone who goes out at night much, I'm more of a stay-at-home kinda' gal, but that doesn't mean I'm not a fan of night time makeup looks or a killer smokey eye. Makeup at night is so much more exciting if you ask me, first, you don't have the sun exposing each and every imperfection on your face, second, you can get away with more darker and intense colours. Today I'll be creating a smokey eye look with the Becca eyeshadow quad in Galactica* which you can purchase from, plus they have plenty of other shades available, in case this one isn't really up your street! So if you would like to know how I created this smokey eye, then keep reading!
