Update And Upcoming Videos!

So many of you may know I'm in England right now visiting my family, and haven't been able to film or upload unfortunately! I'm here from the 9th of dec til 1st of jan, but then I'm flying out to the Gold Coast for a week with my boyfriend Andrew. I'm planning on making a get ready with me video while I'm away, which I can upload as soon as I'm back.
Since I've been here I've been doing lots and lots of shopping and increasing my makeup collection and ideas.
I'd like to list out a few videos I have planned to keep you looking forward to my videos!

  • Holiday/special occasion look - perfect for more formal occasions and special events, as well as Christmas time, though I am aware I am a bit late!
  • A clubbing GRWM video!
  • A huge haul video, or series of videos. I will probably split them into categories like clothes then makeup and brushes, then skincare and hair are products.
  • Easy, simple makeup looks
  • Naked 3 Palette review and demo (I am hugely excited about this!!)
I really hope you guys will enjoy my upcoming videos and I'm grateful for your patience while I'm away. In the meantime, I'm trying to post on here, but ill also start posting to my tumblr. The address is, id love if you could check in there!

Thanks everyone!

A Versatile Makeup Base

Soooo many times I have just finished my makeup and started choosing my lip colour, only to really really want an awkwardly specific colour that simply does not suit the look I have completed so far. For this annoying situation, I decided I'd like to create a base look that will suit any lip colour I could choose at the end. I hope this video is helpful to you and would love feedback!

I have been focusing more on my YouTube videos recently which is why I may have been away from my blog. I do love blogging, however, and will make more of an effort to get back on here as much as I can!
Here are a few of my most recent videos, feel free to have a look!

Summer Nights Makeup Tutorial:
Monthly Favourites - November

Dramatic, Bronze Smokey Eyes

This look was created in the first video!

Lots of Love,


What To Buy Your Beauty Loving Friends and Family For Christmas!

Hi guys, so it's christmas time soon which means a whole load of stress for me because I never have any idea what to get anyone. That is, except when in comes to beauty lovers. This list will hopefully help you in your search to find the perfect makeup, skincare and beauty products to give as gifts to your friends and family!

Larger Gifts:

The Inglot Freedom System (5 palette $14, each eyeshadow $10) - I think these are so perfect for a gift because of the choice it gives the receiver. Basically, you buy the empty palette and fill it with any of Inglot's eyeshadows! Their range of colours and finishes mean that you can customise your palette completely. You could even just get them the palette and let them choose their own eyeshadows.

Benefit's Let's Glow, Lovely set $50usd - This special christmas set by Benefit can be found on their US website. It comes with a highlighter, a blush, a mascara and a gorgeous peachy corally lipgloss. This is great because it gives a few little gifts in one, and I consider it to be quite affordable at $50usd (around $65-70aud).

set includes:
full size watt’s up! 9.4 g Net wt. 0.33 oz.
full size dandelion 7.0 g Net wt. 0.25 oz.
deluxe they’re real! mascara 4.0 g Net wt. 0.14 oz.
dandelion ultra plush deluxe sample 6.5 mL

Bobbi Brown Smokey Cool Eye Palette $80 - I saw this a few weeks ago on the website and absolutely fell in love with it. This palette is so so holiday appropriate! It will enable whoever you gift it to to create gorgeous shimmering, metallic christmassy and New Years looks. It also comes with a brush which, I think is great, because Bobbi Brown brushes are pretty expensive to buy separately! Anyway, this palette has 5 smokey, icy shades which would be absolutely perfect for the holiday season. 

MAC Stroke of Midnight Lip Bag in Nude $89 - This is such a great gift, in my opinion. I can think of so many people who would appreciate this really complete gift pack. It includes a Cremesheen Glass in Softly Lit, Lipstick in Creme D'nude (an absolute favourite of mine!!) and a lip pencil in Boldly Bare. This gift pack will help whoever receives it to create the perfect nude lip. Plus, it comes in a gorgeous little purse, so it is like 2 gifts in one!

Daisy by MARC JACOBS $92 100ml - I'm such a sucker for this perfume, but seriously, it is one of the most famous and popular and well loved perfumes on the planet. It is said to be "happy and youthful", and "more accessible than the signature range" and "sophisticated but not too serious". It brings down the age range of Marc Jacobs customers. This is why I think it would be perfect for a teenager, or maybe even younger as their first proper perfume. Having said this, my best friend's mother wears Daisy by Marc Jacobs and loves it, so I believe it is down to personal preference, not age!

VS Sassoon 31mm Hair Curler $32 Priceline - This hair curler, and ones like it, make great gifts for girls who love beauty and hair. I actually just bought this curler for my younger sister's 17th birthday on Dec 5th, but I think it would be a really useful, lasting gift for christmas. 

Smaller Gifts / Stocking Fillers / Kris Kringle :

YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks $55 - Quite expensive for a lipstick, but in my opinion, a great great product for the price. The packaging is really pretty and the colours are extremely creamy and long-lasting. These are such a luxurious product, and many people would absolutely love these.

BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Eyeshadow Palette $13.95 - This is a great palette for the price. The eyeshadows are baked which make them highly pigmented and long lasting, and also enable you to use them with water for a more intense, creamy look. BH cosmetics' products are all actually pretty high quality, which is surprising due to their extremely low prices. I think this palette would be well suited to a teenage friend or family member.

The Body Shop Body Butters $27.95 - I absolutely LOVE Body Butters, and I always have and I always will! Personally I think these are fool-proof stocking fillers for most people, and are such a simple gift idea. My favourite scents are Pink Grapefruit and Coconut, and I also love the Olive one, which is intensely mositurising.

Tangle Teezer $20 - I don't personally own one of these, but I've always seen and heard great things about them. They're pretty much an essential to hair-care lovers, as they comb out wet and dry hair effortlessly. They are apparently "the best first step to hair rehabilitation", and honestly, I want one myself!

MAC Lipsticks $36 - I'm obsessed with MAC lipsticks, and I think the brand is highly respected among many many people, which is why I've included this on my list. I got my first MAC lipstick when I was 17 and absolutely loved it. Giving these small, inexpensive gifts is pretty effortless but extremely thoughtful.
