Makeup Geek!

Hi beauties!
This week I received my order from Makeup Geek (shipping was good - around 2 and a half weeks to Australia). I'm extremely happy with what I ordered - for $8 an eyeshadow (compared to Macs $25!) they are so pigmented, easy to use and there's a great choice of colours.

The palette and swatches colours are
♥ Corrupt, Moondust, Taupe Notch ♥
♥ Galaxy, Mercury, Graphite ♥
♥ Envy, Nautica, Sensous ♥

In pigments I got Insomnia, Vegas Lights and Birthday Wish.
So so beautiful, I really recommend all Makeup Geek products!

This is the look I created with some of my products today -

I usedTaupe Notch in my crease, Mercury all over the lid with Insomnia pigment over the top, a little Corrupt in the outer crease, and Mercury and Corrupt on my lower lash line! I wish my camera would show the true reflects and amazing colours in the pigment :(

Valentines Day Makeup!

I've been inspired by all the American MUA's on Instagram doing Valentines Day look. Obviously Australia isn't as into Valentines day but hey any excuse to play with makeup :)!

I did a pink smokey look with some red and a purple wing smoked out. Excuse the ratty lashes they've been used waaaay too many times haha.
I used Sugarpill Tako, Poison Plum, Dollipop and Love +

I also had the pleasure of doing some makeup on my lovely friend today. As I've decided to get back into the beauty industry I need to sharpen up my makeup skills again and get myself ready to get into it and throw myself out there. We did a brown/soft smokey eye and pretty pink lips ♥ I used the Naked basics palette, some Inglot colours and Ardell lashes. Lippy is BH Cosmetics.

Rainbow Pride

Feeling colourful today so decided to make a little rainbow assortment on my eyes. I'm bored at home today, doing washing and cleaning (blergh) so I decided to brighten things up!
I used my Sugarpill pressed shadows for this look, I've been using their products for quite a while now and they're definitely up there in my top brands.

You can still see a bit of lash glue but never mind haha

Such fun colours to play with, so so extremely pigmented. So I used Rimmel Stay Matte foundation, Rimmel Stay Matte powder, Sportsgirl brozer for contour. Lips is Nude Attitude by Revlon.
 On eyes -

From L-R Love +, Flamepoint, Buttercupcake
Midori, Afterparty & Poison plum

Enjoy your weekend beautifuls x

Todays MOTD

Hello, hello! Feeling cheery today so decided to do some pretty purple eye makeup :)
On my face I've used Natio Day Mosituriser, Rimmel Stay Matte foundation (new faveeeee), Maybelline Concelear and Rimmel Stay Matte powder. To contour I used my Sportsgirl bronzer, and added a little Chi Chi highlight.

For this I used all the purples and a bit of black from my new Morphe brushes palette - the #35. I love this palette, it cost under $20 and has a wide variety of beautiful colours. I ended up ordering 2 palettes, and once they arrived I was so impressed with the quality I went back online and got them all! Plus a tonnnnnn of lashes because they sell them for $2! Crazy!

This is my 35 and 35b palette and some of the lashes I got!
Soooo in love and so much choice.

Well hello..

I haven't used this blog for so long, probably around 3-4 years now. I used to use it for my little beauty obsessions, a place to post about my interest in makeup and all things beauty. I will be adding little tidbits of that also, but I also just need somewhere to write. I have so much continuously going around in my head, and I think the only way for me to overcome things and get through them is to write them down and really be able to release them from my body.
I'm happy, I think. Somedays are better than others.
