MAKEUP TUTORIAL

Today, I have created my everyday glam makeup look, this is my go-to look everyday. It focusses on glowy skin, matte earthy toned eyes, highlighting and my favourite products to line my lips.


MY SECRET TO GLOWING SKIN

All of you know I am a big fan of active skincare- I have been raving about its benefits for years, but I also have another skincare secret to share with you and that’s the benefit of lasers and intensive exfoliation treatments for the skin.


MY FAVOURITE LIPPY COLOURS

The lipstick shade I choose to wear each day is just as important as the clothes I wear. I am a girl that has always been lipstick obsessed (in my handbag you will find 10 different shades at any time because I need them all right?) and wearing certain colours changes my mood instantly.


MASCARA: HOW TO GUIDE

One beauty product that I must wear every day is mascara. I am not fussy with foundation, bronzer or even blush, but I need that little black lacquer coated on my lashes or else I don’t feel like me.



SKINCARE: PRODUCTS I LOVE

I am so happy to share my first beauty post for 2015 (woo hoo!). I can’t believe how badly I lagged behind with beauty stories last year. I feel awful, as I know I promised you so much more (but they never came). Well this will all change in 2015 (if you read my recent New Years...

BEAUTICATE.COM

It may not surprise you to discover that I have an unhealthy beauty addiction. I don’t have any formal beauty qualifications, but I have been obsessed with reading and learning about this sometimes-fluffy industry for as long as I can remember. It may be a new illuminator, anti-ageing skincare or the latest mascara to hit the market, I have...


5 AMAZING MASCARAS YOU MUST TRY

I am dedicating a whole post to mascara. Yes, this that little black product means the world to me, I have quite fairish eyelashes so I feel naked without it. I curl my lashes every day (using the best Shu Eumura). I have long lashes, but they are annoying straight. Leaving the house with...

BRONZER TALK: MY TOP 5

If you’re anything like me (pasty and dull skin) you are also nosy and curious. I love reading about what other people like to use, particularly when it comes to beauty products so I am going to be running regular posts on my top beauty countdowns. Seeing as it’s autumn and getting cooler by the second, I...


MY BEAUTY SHORTCUTS

Being time poor is a normal part of everyday life now. It’s either work or a million other different commitments that drag you in so many different directions, it leaves little or no time to beautify for events. I’m always looking for beauty shortcuts that I can easily achieve at home. Here are a few...

IT’S ALL ABOUT THE BASE (PART 1)

Today (part 1) is all about the base. In the coming weeks I will touch on our eyes and bronzers. Getting our base right is the most important step to achieving glowing skin that will stay in place all day. The base is more than one foundation, this is my collection. I can imagine you're...


HOW TO GET THE HAIR AT MYER SS14

I couldn't help but notice the effortlessly cool hair down the runway at the Myer Spring Summer 14 collection launch. Kevin Murphy (AKA the internationally renowned king of hair) was once again behind this amazing show. Kevin created a modern look that was inspired by water and feathers to keep it in line with the...

HOW TO GET THE PERFECT CURLS

Okay, I have always been fussy with my hair. It's a bad trait to have. My hair is naturally wavy and frizzy and I still remember the days when I would bring out our iron and beg Mum to iron it straight (so awkward with my head on the ironing board) those were the...


LET’S TALK FACIALS

If you read my blog you may remember my recent post about my little beauty secret, see HERE. In that post I mentioned my love for AHA & BHA's (if you haven't heard of these wonder workers, Google it now). The short version is they are super powerful acids used for deep exfoliation that work...


BEAUTY SECRET..SHHHH

I have always been quite lucky to have clear skin even through those awkward teen years; I only got a breakout here and there. About three years ago something strange happened I started getting all these little bumps around my jawline and chin.
