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

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

‘Addicted to Blush’ Tag

IMG_0859

Along with lipstick, blush is my favourite makeup item to buy, because it adds so much to any makeup look. One of my favourite bloggers Kat from the blog Kitsch Snitch has made her own tag all about blush and as soon as I read it, I knew it was a tag I needed to do. You can read the original tag here. Now for the questions! Continue reading

Dior ‘Kingdom of Colours’ for Spring 2015

IMG_0849

Spring luxury makeup collections are always my favourite because they are generally all about beautiful colours. I think Dior do some of the best limited edition collections. They always have a large range of different products and have a mix of plain neutrals and more unique interesting colours. Their newest collection, ‘Kingdom of Colours’ contains several pieces. I picked up two of the eye products from the collection and below is my review!  Continue reading
