Posts in Eyebrows
Sephora’s Australian store opening in Sydney was the biggest thing to happen to Australian beauty fans this year. It was a highly anticipated and despite a lot of negativity from some of the online community overall the launch was a massive success. The majority of people are happy or accepting of the pricing but with a lot of the final brand details withheld until opening day, I haven’t been able to give you a run-down of the brands and products that impressed me most. That changes today!
This is your guide to the must-view, must-play and must-buy brands and products available at Sephora Australia. Continue Reading
You saw what I took in my beauty bag to New York Fashion Week but what about my makeup bag? Picking which makeup I take away with me is definitely the hardest task I have to face when travelling. It would be like choosing which one of your kids gets to travel with you, except the criteria I look at for my choices comes down to versatility, reliability and proven success at making me look good. Rarely will I take a makeup product that I’ve never used before because I don’t have the room to take more than one of each item …. except for lipstick of course. And eyeshadows. And lashes.
As I did with my beauty bag, I try to take miniature and deluxe sized samples where possible and palettes for items where I need a choice of a few colours, excluding lipsticks because I usually need to carry the lipstick around with me all day for touch-ups.

Eyebrows are a current trend that are demanding a lot of attention, but having well-kept brows isn’t a new thing entirely. Whether it had been the pencil thin, straight brows of the 1920’s or the out-of-control bush of the 1980’s brows have always been a defining part of our face.
Admittedly, I didn’t realise how important eyebrows were until my twenties. I actually think I verged on having a monobrow at one stage in my early pre-teen years. But none of us have an excuse to ignore our brows now that the likes of Cara Delevingne has them plastered everywhere. Today I’m not going to carry on about how important groomed brows are (you can see my many posts brows), instead I’m just going to show you what difference can be made with a little product and a couple of tools.

I honestly think MAC Cosmetics are picking stranger and stranger people to collaborate with. The latest is Brooke Shields, which would have been fitting for the actress, author, and former model about 20 years ago but now? I’m just not so sure.
Back in the day Brooke was a gorgeous model and these days she is still a striking woman. I loved her in Suddenly Susan but she isn’t a person I would think of when it comes to remarkable style or gorgeous facial features. While her eyebrows have always been a bit of a topic amongst beauty watchers, no one can deny that her big, dark brows are now completely on-trend. So what does this mean for an entire cosmetic collection created in part by her? Let’s take a closer look. Continue Reading
