Halloween Makeup Idea - Cute Fawn!

Hey guys,

I have a special post today! With Halloween fast approaching I thought it would be fun to attempt a makeup look, suitable for the special occasion. I'm not one to really get into Halloween but as we all know, I'll use any excuse to practice makeup (not that I need an excuse ha ha).

Today I googled images of fawn makeup and tried to replicate a look of my own. I didn't have A LOT of the things that I needed for this look but I wanted to try it anyway and just work with what I've got.

Although there are many things that I would like to change, I'm very happy with the outcome and think it's such a cute idea for Halloween. If I was attending some kind of Halloween event, this is definitely what I'd go as.

If you'd like to recreate this look you can probably find lots of videos on YouTube or as I said, images on google....goodluck!

How do you like this makeup look for Halloween? Will you give it a go (if you do, don't forget to tag me!)?

My Current Favourite Lip Products

1. The Body Shop Born Lippy lip balm in "Strawberry" $7.95
2. Lanolips ointment $17.99
3. Chi Chi creamy matte liquid lipstick in "Lady in Red" $16.95
4. Chi Chi lipstick in "Let Me Tempt You" $18.95
5. MAC cremesheen lipstick in "Bare Again" $36
6. MAC cremesheen lipstick in "Shy Girl" $36
7. Dior lip maximiser lipgloss $48.00
8. Chi Chi stay on lip liner in "Lady in Red" $9.95

Lip products are a secret (or not so secret) obsession of mine and these are the ones I am loving at the moment. I've only recently discovered Chi Chi lip products but was quickly swept off my feet when I did...they're amazing! I'd highly recommend trying out the lip liners as they are very pigmented and long-wearing. The price tag on Chi Chi products are also a great bonus. 

The Dior lipgloss is quite pricey which makes it a bit of a luxury but I find it works wonders as a lip primer, allowing the lipstick to glide on smoothly or just as a type of lip balm as it hydrates the lips very effectively. 

I'm sure you've probably heard of the MAC lipsticks I mentioned (they are my holy grail lipsticks) and same for The Body Shop lip balms and Lanolips ointment. The strawberry flavoured lip balm is definitely my favourite as it tints the lips a gorgeous berry/pink colour and smells very sweet and delicious. I'm always mixing up my lip balms and trying out new brands so these are just my favourite at the moment. 

Have you tried any of these lip products? What are your favourites at the moment?

Spring & Coral FOTD

Hey guys!

Another Spring face of the day. I'm really into red and coral lip colours at the moment so today's face is sporting just that. "Lady Danger", the lipstick that I'm wearing, is a gorgeous, vibrant orangey red and has a surprisingly creamy texture for a matte lipstick. I'd highly recommend trying it out as no matter what skin tone you have (as the lady at the MAC counter told me), it suits everyone!

As always I've listed the products used on my face and also the brand of clothes I am wearing in the pictures below. Enjoy.


If you're curious as to why my face and body are a complete different shade, it's because I've fake tanned ;)


Products used on my face:

- MAC prep+prime primer
- Bourjois healthy mix foundation in the shade #54
- Maybelline age rewind concealer
- Elizabeth Arden sheer lights illuminator in the shade "Light"
- MAC translucent powder
- Benefit hoola bronzer
- MAC powder blush in the shade "Pinch Me"
- MAC highlighter in "Soft and Gentle"

Outfit & Makeup Look Of The Night

Hey! How are you guys?

Living on college usually entails a lot of parties and nights out, last night being one of them. I love getting myself all dressed up and doing a full face of makeup and last night I was very happy with the outcome so I thought I'd share it with you!

I usually tend to stick with the same makeup when I go out, a bronze smokey eye. I used my new Too Faced Naturals eyeshadow palette and there literally is not one colour that I don't like, it's awesome! I would definitely recommend investing in one of these palettes if you're a neutral gal at heart like I am. I also have been loving my Katy Perry false eyelashes and you can find a review of them HERE.

With my outfit I kept it quite simple and comfortable. I laugh at my High School self wearing huge heels to parties and complaining about my sore feet for days after....why did I used to do that to myself? Usually when I go out now I refuse to wear any heel past an inch or two as you just can't have as much fun! As for the fluro singlet top I was little skeptical when I first bought it but absolutely adored how vibrant and eye catching it ended up looking against my tanned skin (fake tan obviously ha ha).

I've listed all my clothing items and where they are from down below, as with the makeup products I used on my face.
