Beauty products that fly under the radar: Our hidden treasures

Hi Guys,

So we often give credit to brushes as the greatest beauty tools you can own but what about those ones we use constantly that just happen to fly under the radar?! Why I’m talking about those simple yet effective beauty tools such as cotton tips, lash curlers and tweezers. Now without these I would have nothing to aid me get rid of the dark bags under my eyes from mascara smudging, limp lashes and John Howard eye brows (Australian joke) But seriously let’s just take a moment to appreciate how awesome these tools are!

Cotton tips: I mostly use these to wipe off unwanted makeup when I make a mistake (which may I add quite frequently happens) I also use these when I apply falsies.

Lash Curler: Now I wouldn’t say I use this everyday but if I want that extra umph in the lash department this is my go-to.

Tweezers: Do I even need to explain to you where we would be without this magical tool! I like to keep to my natural brow shape so this just helps me pick up the stragglers growling wildly out of control.

What are your hidden treasure beauty tools? These are defiantly the top three for me!

OOTN & FOTN

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to share quickly with you my OOTN & FOTN :) I picked up this amazing dress from Lucy in the Sky! It’s an online clothing boutique that ships internationally so go check them out :) I paired this outfit with MAC saint germain lipstick as it compliments the pastels in the dress. For eyes I kept them simple as I wanted the lips to be the standout!

M.I.A – but I’m back (again) + Best makeup travel essentials

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all. Sorry I have been so M.I.A recently. I have been on a cruise recently and then on boxing day (26 dec for non-aussies) I went to Japan for New Years. My trip was phenomenal. The people were amazing and any preconceived idea I had was just blown out of the water. I will defiantly be heading back and exploring more of Japan as I only got to see Tokyo and a small mart of Nikko. 

Just wanted to make an honorable mention to the beauty products that saved my life in Japan. My Lioele triple the solution, Australis fresh and flawless powder, Benefit mascara and the elf eyebrow kit were a god-sent! These four products were all I used for my everyday looks while traveling and they were amazing. Could stand the harsh (freeeezing) weather conditions I experienced and were just an all round gem for the trip. I recommend these products for easy makeup while traveling :)

Here are some pics from my trip and I look forward to blogging about all things beauty, fashion and food in 2014 :)

OOTD: Racerback Work Wear

Hi Guys,

I picked up this shirt the other day and although its not something I would normally wear to work I thought what the heck! This is how I styled it. Also as I don’t wear much makeup to work I just decided to wear some mascara and my favourite Laguna Bronzer to give me some definition :)
