Choosing what makeup to wear for an event is difficult, particularly when wearing an outfit that really makes an impact and doesn’t need intense makeup to accompany it. I went to a while ago and wore an orange and silver gown (outfit post coming soon) with metallic red shoes. So, I decided I wanted my makeup to look fresh and natural, with a pop of colour. I didn’t practice this look at all before the night, so while I was doing my makeup I was worried that the products weren’t going to work together. However, I was pleasantly surprised and ended up loving the finished product! Continue reading
A few weeks ago, Priceline had one of their famous 40% off beauty sales and I jumped at the opportunity to buy some products I’ve been wanting to try and also stock up on some favourites. Here I’ll share my haul and some first impressions of the things I’ve tried so far. Continue reading
I love the feeling of removing makeup and washing my face at the end of a long day. I am very picky about all my skincare products, cleaners and makeup removers included, but once I find something I love then I stick to it. Today I’m going to share my makeup-removing and cleansing routine and show my favourite products. Get ready, I feel like this will be a long one! Continue reading
I was originally not going to post these photos because they were from quite a few months ago when the weather was much cooler than it is now and I thought I missed the boat. No one wants to read about boots, long shirts and jeans when it’s sweltering hot outside. So since I didn’t get them out quickly enough to beat the summer weather last time, I decided to wait until now. The heat is finally started to subside (thank goodness) so this type of outfit is perfect for transitioning between the extreme hot to extreme cold.
Maybelline mascaras are iconic. I’ve been using one of Maybelline’s oldest (and rarely mentioned) mascaras, ‘full & soft’ for a while now and realised that sometimes the most basic things can bring some of the best results.
To accompany my post from earlier this week all about my ‘dewy skin and statement lip’ makeup look, I thought I would also share the outfit I wore that night. I’ve been into wearing trousers out at night lately instead of dresses and skirts; I think there’s something very cool and effortless about a pair of tailored pants paired with a more casual top.

When doing my makeup for a night out, I choose to either play up my lips or my eyes, then base the rest of my makeup around that. Lately, I’ve been loving super highlighted and dewy-looking skin with a bright, usually matte, lip. I went to a party for the first week back at uni recently and loved the makeup look that I did. It was really simple and easy, so I thought I would share it. Continue reading
Mecca seems to be frequently introducing new brands lately so it seems like Australia is slowly starting to catch-up with the US and Europe when it comes to new brands. Ilia beauty is a new range to Mecca, and a pretty new makeup brand in general, that I’ve been hearing UK bloggers talk about for a few months now. Today I’ll be sharing my initial reviews of two Ilia products. Continue reading
If you ever go looking in the cosmetics sections of Priceline or Target you have probably seen the Essence stand. Essence is a European drugstore brand that is extremely affordable- definitely would be one of the cheapest brands available in Australia- and have a massive selection of products. Here I have a review of two of the products from their latest ‘wave goddess’ collection. Continue reading
