Natural Everyday Contour Routine

Heya peeps 🙂

In today’s tutorial, I’m stripping it back and taking it back to basics!

I think a lot of people are intimidated at the thought of highlight and contouring, especially if you don’t wear makeup all that often. BUT, I think it’s such a good technique to know because it really just flatters your face and makes all the difference when just a but of bronzer is applied. Best of all, it’s not hard!

I do a light bronzing and contouring routine everyday to define my egg-shaped face. It’s just a 2 step process! Super simple, because yes, I am a lazy person and I like my sleep. If you’re like me, then check out my 2 easy peasy steps 😀

The Kat Von D ‘Shade & Light’ palette is aaammmaaazee-balls! It’s the only thing I use. If you haven’t purchased this already, go head girl, whatchuwaitingfoh?! – side note: Gwen Stefani is utter perfection. ok ANYWAYS.

See, told you it’s simple!

Must have drugstore beauty products

Hello my scrumptious muffin tops!

(Not the unwanted type of muffin top on the hips, but the best part of the muffin!)

If you guys are like me, and need to watch your spending because you have little to no self-restraint when it comes to all things beauty.. Especially when the packaging is like, eugh! love!

So today I let you in on my favorite drugstore beauty products! These are the items that I believe you don’t need to fork out your whole paycheck to get in order to achieve the best quality. I’ve been using these items for years and would probably bring them on the hypothetical island I’d be stuck on where you only get to pick a selected items.

Hope you enjoy me luvs! Let me know what your faves are! 😀

Lots of luurrrve.

Sultry Fall Evening Makeup

Soooooo yes.

I once again have failed in the department of keeping up with posting here in a timely manner. BUT it’s never too late to continue right! 😀

Today i’ve come up with a sexy and sultry evening makeup look and paired it with 3 lip options so you guys know what it would look like with different looks!

I loooove lip products! So I wanted to use shades that you guys might not be all that used to – i.e. browny, reddy and purply colors hahah. I am SO terrible at explaining colors… I do better comparing them to food 😛

My current obsession are liquid lipsticks because they stay on the lips like no tomorrow and really cling onto your lips for dear life (in a good way!) and they’re matte, which is my favourite. I used two of OFRA’s liquid lipsticks which are nice and creamy, however, don’t stay on for as long as the Colourpop ultra matte liquid lipsticks. I used Colourpop’s ‘Tulle’ in the video. But i love them both because the colors are really vibrant and fun.

So hope you enjoy and I promise to write again sooooon!

Ciao my bellas!

First Date Makeup + Hair

Helloo!

So word on the street is you have a date, ehhh?! Haha WELL that makes one of us! I’m just forever living the long-distance ‘Skype date’ life. It’s the new thug life.

This little meet-up/get together/rendevous doesn’t necessarily have to be nerve-racking! But getting the jitters and sweaty palms are all good signs! Haha. So to take one pressure off, I’ve come up with a really simple and beautiful makeup tutorial that is universally flattering! The eyes only take 3 steps, everything else is also left minimal. The perfect ‘no makeup’ look (what males like to think…) 😛

The most important features to highlight for a first date are skin and eyes. If you ask most male creatures, a majority will look nice eyes. Skin may not come up as something that seals the deal, BUT, it definitely makes a really big difference. So with this look I’m gonna help you peeps highlight just that 🙂

So check it owwttttt! 😀

3 Summer Outfit Inspirations | 2015

Hello lovelies!

It’s that time of year where our bodies are spontaneously combusting due to this hot and humid weather, uggh! It’s hard to look perfectly put together and cute sometimes when all you can think about how to get your hands on some fruity sorbet, gelato and/or iced coffee to fend of the epic sweats. Looking fab is the least of your worries..

SO. I’ve put together my 2015  Summer Lookbook with  three  outfit inspirations for you guys! Each look has a different feel about it and I wanted to create outfits that you could wear from day through to night because let’s be honest, ain’tnobaddygottaaimme for thinking of 2 outfits in one day dude…

We filmed this at the Highline in NYC. It is absolutely stunning this time of year! I went in Winter and although it still had a majestic beauty about it, it’s definitely a different feeling being there when the flowers are flourishing and in full bloom and the thick carpet of snow has been replaced by lush green grass. I’m a Summer baby if you can’t tell…

Aaanyway, let’s get into the outfits shalls weeehh?

The first look has a Bohemian vibe about it. The romper is all white, with simple rectangular cutout details on the neckline, sleeves and short area. It draws in at the waist with a bow to create a really nice loose & casual fit; perfect for the Summer months when the last thing you want is anything to be sticking to your sweaty body.

I love the details on the sleeves how they slightly flare out with subtle ruffles, giving it more of that earthy-boho look.

For shoes, I chose to pair them with these Zara semi gladiator style heels.  They’re mid height which makes them really versatile for a lot of different styles and looks. The real bonus is that they’re suuuuppperrr comfortable! Something that is unheard of with cute heels hahha. The struggle is real people.

In the accessory department, I picked a few of my favorite thrifted rings. Some of the best little things are found thrift shopping, you just don’t know what you might come across. One mans trash is another mans treasure, right! The necklaces are bought. The dangly belly dancer-esque looking one is from Forever 21, and the longer crystal gem is from a store in Australia called Lovisa.

Moving on!

This second outfit is cute, fun and flirty.

IMG_0690              IMG_0701  IMG_0698

It’s actually a really simple look, and I like to keep outfits simple and clean, but create some interest by adding a pop of color! It just livens up the mood, especially in Summer when fun and fresh colors should be experimented with the most; which can sometimes be quite tedious for monochromatic lovers like me…

The ingenious invention of the skort [short + skirt] features in this look. This particular one is from Zara and it has a middle overlapping split. The print is really cute, with little melons on it, but from far away you can’t really tell what they are. Small prints like this help to make you look thinner, as apposed to large prints which accentuate your size/figure. It’s all about the visual illusions of prints and color to help bring attention to what you want to highlight and/or downplay.

I’m walkin’ on air! Jks. Eh.

For the third and final look, I wanted to highlight the culotte. Kendall Jenner has been sporting this baby non-stop and it really gives off a kind of androgynous and feminine chic look.

These culottes are from Zara and they’re high waisted and sit right above the hip and fall to the mid calf area. They have a really nice pleat detail in the top and slightly flare out towards the bottom.

(Trying my best to be model-esque… HAH.)

Because the culottes are already a bold statement, coupled with the bold color, I chose to top them off with a monochromatic striped crop top with a cut-out detail.

The top is from Bardot (www.bardot.com.au), not sure if they shop internationally (apologies in advance if not!). But i’m sure you can find something similar on ASOS or Missguided etc.

The shoes give this look an edge with the studs. The thin straps help to create an illusion of thin long legs, woop woop!

So that’s it guys! Really hope you guys enjoy this video and the outfits, because I had a ball filming it!
