MAC Wash and Dry Collection: ‘Freshen Up’ High-light Powder

MAC Freshen Up highlight powder

I’ve never been an obsessive MAC fan. That’s not because I think the products are bad but because the prices are so inflated here in Australia that it doesn’t seem worth it. All brands are more expensive in Australia, but the difference with MAC is much more dramatic than any other brand available. Where I give in to the MAC temptation though is with their limited edition collections and this year, MAC have been killing it. When the ‘Wash & Dry’ collection was released, I knew exactly what I wanted to get and today I have my review. Continue reading

Simple Orange Night-out Look

makeup of the night- hourglass blush palette, mac cinderellaChoosing 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

So Much Zen

104

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.

Statement Pants: Casual Night Out

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.

Dewy Complexion and Red Lips- Night Makeup Look

IMG_0823

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
