Skincare Application Video Tutorial

Learning how to apply your skincare products is an important part of looking after yourself. Not all products should be applied in the same way and unless you were instructed on how to apply the products you’re using, you may actually be assisting your skin to form lines or lose elasticity at a faster rate. This is why I’ve created a quick video tutorial on how to apply skincare products.   Continue Reading

Rico Zombie Boy with Normal Skin

That guy looks like a regular, spunky dude, doesn’t he? Nothing all that flash. Some good cheekbones, a bad-boy gaze, attitude …. doesn’t really appear to need a makeover. Actually, that photo above IS THE MAKEOVER.

Say whaaaat?

This post is going to show you just how incredible makeup really is. While most of our everyday interactions with makeup may just be to add a little colour to our lives, the fact is that makeup can and does much more than that. I’ve always believed makeup isn’t just for the use of shallow humans who desire to improve their looks for frivolous reasons. No reason for using makeup is without purpose and I do believe whatever that purpose may be is perfectly acceptable.

These beauty transformations will show you that makeup is a powerful tool, and one that has changed many lives.  Continue Reading

How To Apply Foundation with Stippling Brush copy

Everyone applies their makeup in different ways using different tools. When it comes to foundation I never stick to one tool for too long. Right now I am loving the Stippling Brush for applying liquid foundation, and while I am no expert at makeup application, I thought you may still be interested to know how to use a stippling brush and why I like it so I created this video tutorial.

NOTE: I reference winter in this video because I filmed it at the end of August but just ignore that 🙂 Continue Reading

Dove Real Beauty Sketches Header

I didn’t have any plans to share with you that tomorrow is my 27th birthday. I may regret publishing my age in the future but it does actually play a part in this post. I would be lying if I said I had any emotion other than horrified and scared. Ageing scares the $*%& out of me. I am not afraid of death, it is just getting older that worries me. How you look, how you feel, how much you can do …. all that diminishes with age and I have known it since I could walk. Like many young people I used to love birthdays but once you pass 21 and the birthday parties stop, the presents stop and you realise cake is the devil … there is just nothing to look forward to aside from wrinkles and joint pain. However, today Dove made me cry and I don’t think they could have picked a better time to do it.

Dove have just released a new campaign about real beauty. It is a little confronting and enlightening at the same time. Watch the video and you will understand what I mean. Continue Reading

The Pantene Beautiful Lengths campaign is an amazing initiative to get woman to grow their hair long and strong, then donate to have it turned into a free wig for cancer patients. In the USA, Pantene USA have been running this campaign since 2006 in conjunction with the American Cancer Society. To date they have distributed over 24,000 free real-hair wigs through the American Cancer Society wig banks. Now the campaign has come to Australia and in conjunction with Look Good … Feel Better, Pantene Australia hope to break the record of free wigs created and distributed across Australia AND New Zealand.

Yesterday, I participated by cutting my hair off and donating my ponytail. Today I want to share with you why I did it, and my journey in video and pictures. Continue Reading

Best Vegan Skincare Brands

Everyone has their own opinion on what skincare should do and be, but for me it’s all about aiming for perfection. I don’t want skincare that does the bare minimum and let’s me age gracefully. I only want to use skincare that WORKS – constantly improving my skin and getting it to function at it’s very best. That’s why I’m sharing with you the best vegan skincare brands.

People often confuse my choice to be vegan as somehow meaning I don’t care about my aesthetics any more. They couldn’t be more wrong! My strict standards for top performing skincare isn’t lessened by my cruelty-free choices. If anything, it makes my standards even higher.

There’s a misconception that cruelty-free and vegan skincare is unable subpar; that they’re less effective than animal-based skincare formulations. While this may have been the case decades ago when vegan skincare exclusively meant “natural” products with little to no scientific basis, skincare development has come a long way since then. Don’t get me wrong, there are still hundreds of natural skincare brands out there that do exactly what I don’t want – they don’t improve your skin, they just make it feel and smell nice – and there is a market for those. Not everyone is deathly afraid of aging like me. However, if you strive for clear, healthy and progressively improving skin despite the years passing us by, than I have exactly what you need.

My list of top performing skincare brands will introduce you to the changemakers. The hard-working, highly efficient skincare that allows you to take charge of your own aging appearance. And it just so happens they’re also the best vegan skincare brands too!  Continue Reading
