My Cleansing Routine

Bioderma, loreal eyemakeup remover, clarins instant remover, dermalogica pre-cleanse, shu uemera oil, avene gel cleanser, clarins shea butter

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

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.

Currently Wearing: Maybelline ‘full & soft’

Maybelline Full and Soft Mascara review

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.

Statement Pants: Casual Night Out

IMG_0811

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

Ilia Beauty Review

Ilia Beauty

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

Essence ‘Wave Goddess- soft touch eyeshadows’ Review

IMG_0789

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

Liebster Nominations- Take 2

dbbd4-liebster-award1

I’ve been tagged by two fellow bloggers, within a few days of eachother, to do the Liebster Awards. I have already done this late last year, but I didn’t realise how much of a ‘thing’ it is in the blogging community, so I’m flattered that two other people took the time to pick me to answer their questions! I’m not sure if it’s cheating, but I’m going to answer both sets of questions here in one go. I love reading about other bloggers and getting to know them through answering these random questions, so hopefully you find this interesting to read too! Continue reading
