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 :)

Clubbing proof makeup tips

Over the weekend I went put clubbing for my birthday and wanted to share my top 3 tips for clubbing proof makeup

1. Prime that face
I just find this helps your makeup to stick on and last the whole night so don’t miss this step.

2. Powder up
I find applying two layers of powder really sets my foundation. Tip though, after that don’t powder again. You don’t want to end up cakey and if you go and reapply in the bathroom this is bound to happen.

3. Falsie it up
There’s not a better time than going out for you to doll up and apply some falsies. :)

NARS Laguna Bronzer Review

As usual, I’m late to the party (my bad). It was my birthday the other day and as usual I wanted to pick up some makeup. This time however, I splashed out and went for a high end product (after all it was my birthday!), so I got NARS Laguna Bronzer. Shock horror, it’s my first NARS product ever, so I am ecstatic over this purchase!!

Can I just say ‘WOW’, I don’t think any other word could describe it better. This bronzer is just phenomenal, just what I was looking for. It’s the perfect colour for my skin, the formula is amazing and it doesn’t have that tacky/overdone sparkly shine most bronzers do. Its matte with minimal shine and it’s just ‘WOW’! It looks natural on my skin and I can wear as much or as little as I want (toally buildable). I’m not going to lie. It is exy ($55 AUD), but contrary to that, it’s just worth it! It suits my pale skin where most bronzers just look overdone and to be blunt, ORANGE!

This is definitely a purchase that I will never look back and regret buying it. It’s a sizeable bronzer too so I know it will last forever! Now packaging, no words can describe it, it’s just practical and makes perfect sense. Its classy, its black, its NARS (so basically you can’t go wrong).

If I was you ladies and haven’t picked this bad boy up already, save your pennies and do it, I can tell this is going to be my new holy grail makeup product :) 10/10
