50% Off Makeup Sale Priceline Drugstore Haul 2017

Who else got their hands on some bargains at the Priceline 50% off cosmetics sale? I managed to pick up some of my favourite products and a few new ones to try out so I filmed this Priceline makeup haul!

Although 50% off is amazing, Christmas is almost here so I didn’t go too overboard. My total spendings at Priceline came to $62.37 but on the bright side, I saved a whopping $62.45! Here is what I bought and why.

NUDE BY NATURE Mineral Veil Finishing Powder 12 g

The Nude By Nature mineral finishing veil is amazing at creating a smooth and flawless finish on the skin without enhancing any fine lines or wrinkles. I haven’t heard many people talking about this product but it is amazing! I press it into the skin with a damp beauty blender to set my foundation.

It doesn’t contain Talc, Bismuth or Parabens, so it not only helps minimise excess oil and shine but allows your skin to breathe (plus no flashback in photos!).

With 50% off it came to $19.97 Continue reading “50% Off Makeup Sale Priceline Drugstore Haul 2017”

The Best Creepy Clown Halloween Makeup

“In the real world, Halloween is when kids dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one day a year when a girl can dress up like a total s**t and no other girls can say anything else about it.” – Cady, Mean Girls

Some people get all dressed up to look sexy for Halloween, while others enjoy the traditional form of Halloween – scaring the absolute crap out of friends and family.

A sure-fire way of scaring people lately is to dress up as a clown. The recent release of ‘It’, the supernatural horror film starring Pennywise, the dancing clown has people running scared.

While I would love to be talented enough to create my own clown makeup look, I entrusted in the amazing makeup artist and my friend Alex aka You Bloody Beauty.

Watch Alex transform me into a creepy clown that will scare the pants off you!

Let me know you what you’re going to dress up as or your favorite Halloween looks from 2017!

The Brow Tint You Have To Try! Maybelline Tattoo Brow Gel Tint Review & Demo

I have been seeing the Maybelline Tattoo Brow Gel Tint everywhere and decided it was time to try it for myself. I’m happy with the thickness of my brows but they could always be a bit darker, especially at the tail end. 

The price is $24.95 however, I got it from the Chemist Wharehouse for $12.39, bargain! It comes in 4 different shades, I chose grey brown because my brows are a more cool toned brown shade. Plus, the colour on the box looked the closest to my actual hair colour.

Clarisonic Mia 2 Review | Worth It?

I’ve struggled with my skin since a teen. One thing no one tells you as a teen is that, unfortunately, your skin doesn’t magically clear up when you hit your twenties or even your thirties! 

I decided that if there was one thing I was going to invest my money into, it was skincare. So I purchased the Clarisonic Mia 2 a couple of years ago because I’m always on the lookout for something that will help improve my skin. Was it worth it?

5 Beauty Products You Need To Replace Today!

No matter how much you love your favourite lip gloss, that was discontinued in 2010. You need to throw it away, trust me on this one.

pexels-photo-324654.jpegBefore knowing these facts I held onto my favourite lipglosses, mascaras, and even sunscreen, for longer than I would like to admit. Once I realised that products actually have a use by date, I started throwing out products like a mad woman.

Not only are you getting rid of nasty products, you’re making room for new products by decluttering. Here are the top 5 beauty products I got rid of and so should you after reading this.

I was inspired to create this video today because my new glasses from Firmoo arrived! I am in love with the clear frame and gold detailing, and the fact that they are big enough to fit my fat head, yet still very delicate and stylish.

I’ve come up with my top 5 tips for making your eyes look amazing in glasses.

1. Use eyeshadow shades that enhance your eye colour

To make your eyes pop behind those glasses use eyeshadows that are going to enhance your eye colour. The easiest way to find the colours that enhance your eye colour is to find your eye colour on the colour wheel and look directly opposite that colour.

For my blue/grey eyes, orange shades make my eyes pop.

Eyebrow Routine For Thick Eyebrows + Benefit Goof Proof First Impressions

Having full eyebrows has been a blessing since they have become quite popular in recent years. I often get people asking ‘how do I get my brows looking so thick?’ So I thought I would film my eyebrow routine.  

Here is my eyebrow routine, as well as a review and my first impressions on the Benefit goof proof brow pencil.

Whilst my eyebrow routine doesn’t take long, I wouldn’t say this is a super quick and easy routine when using a pencil. I consider quick and easy to be a quick slick of tinted brow gel through my brows before running out the door.

This eyebrow pencil tutorial shows you step by step how I draw out my brows to achieve thick yet natural looking eyebrows.

5 Tips to embrace your Fair Skin | Plus Skincare!

Now that we are well and truly into the colder months my skin is as pale as ever. I’ve decided to embrace my pale skin and remember to really take care of it during these harsh winter months. 

Fair skin can be sensitive and more susceptible to sun damage and redness. Which means, it is extra important to take care of your beautiful fair skin. Here are my top 5 tips on how to care for your fair skin.

Sun Protection

skincareMy number one tip for fair skin is to practise being sun smart daily, all year ’round. Sunburn leads to premature wrinkles, sun spots and worst of all, skin cancer. I use Dermalogica’s Ultra Sensitive Tint with SPF 30.

It has multiple benefits acting as a sunscreen, whilst being sensitive enough for fair skin and giving a touch of colour. It also protects from both UVA and UVB rays.
