NYFW Beauty Products

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.

Without further ado, here’s the makeup that landed in my suitcase.  Continue Reading

Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Powder

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.  Continue Reading

FOA HD Brow Kit

Brows are the one part of my face that never go without a bit of makeup. I couldn’t bare to leave the house without my brows done, and more importantly so when my brows are overgrown and in need of reshaping. That was the case this month when I didn’t have a second to get to a brow bar but needed my brows to look respectable. It gave me the perfect opportunity to try out Face of Australia’s High Definition Eyebrow Kit.

I have reviewed this universal compact for you and included my own before & after shots. Can this beauty kit solve my brow hair woes?  Continue Reading

FOTD Super Quick Makeup Tutorial

I’m terrible at getting ready in the morning. If I know I don’t have to see anyone until the afternoon I will stay barefaced and wear track pants until the last minute. That means I usually have only 10 minutes or less to throw on my makeup for a meeting or event.

This look was put together with not a minute to spare as I ran to a meeting. My goal was for a sheer but luminous complexion that wasn’t too heavy, an open-eye because I had been running on 5hrs sleep all week and some colour to liven me up with a sweet cheek and punchy lip. Recreate my look with these instructions and products.  Continue Reading

It’s a new year and time to set some new goals. Despite my obsession with looking and feeling my best, it’s my laziness that gets in the way of looking after myself as much as I should.
