Get Happy with Physicians Formula

physicians formula productsA couple of weeks ago I tweeted an instagram picture of a couple of fun new products I got sent to try out from Physician Formula. The products included:

the new Happy Booster powders in Translucent, Bronzer and the blush in Rose- these powders all have a soft satiny finish to them which I like and have a light floral scent. Cute packaging, (i just love the hearts) with a mirror and brush and are very wearable. Oh and they claim to be mood boosting, now I’m not saying that these products don’t make me happy because theypowder totally do. I actually love the products and have been wearing them on a regular basis but its more from the colours and hearts than some ‘endorphin mimicking formula’ so as far as mood boosting goes its no morning dose of Zoloft put it that way.

Organic Wear mascara in Ultra Black Organics – is yes you guessed it has 100% naturally derived ingredients. It also has a massive brush my favourite kind. Oh and its all 100% recyclable which is nice.

and the Eye Booster 2 in 1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black this is a great liquid pen style liner. I can’t really comment as to whether it has a lash growing effect as I haven’t been wearing it daily but as a liner is very easy to use and very black!

To show you all how wearable they are I thought I’d try out a look only using these products (except the powder on my brows , leftover white pencil on my waterline, clear lip gloss and foundation).face4

I used the Translucent powder all over my face, Contoured slightly with the Bronzer including my eyes, I then used some of the Translucent powder on my lids (its not completely translucent, it gives the skin a bit of a glow)> Next up was winged liner and Mascara. I finished off my look with a bit of the blush on my cheeks and on my lips mixed with a bit of gloss. side face

Still Kicking a FOTD and Update

I’m not dead, its just taken a lot more than I originally thought to get back into the swing of things. For starters I absolutely hate my new study/ makeup room so that will be changing. So you’ll probably notice my backgrounds change around a bit over the next month or so. There’s also been a few other things that have been taking up my time. But they are pretty boring, so onto something slightly more interesting, yeah!

lashesI just had to try out these Katy Perry Lashes as soon as they arrived. There will be a full review on the four of them once I’ve tried them all but today’s feature a pair in Oh, Honey! They really remind me of Ardell wispies which are one of my favourites for the times you want extra lashes without going completely overboard. I say without going overboard but I was just going grocery shopping so it kind of was already overboard. I get the strangest looks when I do my shopping, I guess the crazy hair doesn’t help but hell I don’t judge those that shop in their pj’s, or do I…

The lashes were sent to me as a surprise from a company and I am not being compensated for telling you what I think of them.

Almost Neon Makeup Tutorial- photo’s, products, tutorial & more!

 

limecrime makeup tutorial

Back with another super bright almost neon look for you all today! Makeupnet sent me a couple of new Limecrime products (they are the distributors for the brand in Australia now) to play around with and I kind of felt the need to go all out. Partly because I’ve been catching up on RuPaul’s Drag Race (love it!) and partly because I know that Mint to be Lipstick isn’t going to be for everyone. In my mind if you are brave enough to wear this lovely shade on your lips your also probably confident enough to pull off the rest of the look too. Plus I just love bright makeup! But I have to say this is one of those looks that you can take one feature and leave the rest kind of ‘blank’ if you aren’t feeling so daring.

 

Products-

(Off camera)

Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation (do not understand why people don’t like this, I love the finish it gives!), Illamasqua Disobey as contour (I use this all the time), Mac Mineralise Skinfinish in Soft & Gentle.

(On Camera)

Limecrime Eyeshadow Helper (awesome! nothing usually compares to TFSI but this does, I like the thicker texture)

Limecrime Magic Eye Dusts in Pink Poodle, Circus Girl, Royal Purple (not telling the name till the comps over!), Nymph and Troubadour.

MAC Paint Stick in Pure White

White eyeliner pencil (not sure which one I picked up, sorry!

Limecrime Mint to be (brows and lips)

Limecrime Loop-de-loop (mainly on outer corners of lips, they are a bit wonky though)

BYS Liquid Liner (such a good buy!)

eBay cheap lashes (top and bottom)

Duo Glue

Now onto the fun part, the video.

In the video I mention that you can win the mystery royal purple shadow, all you have to do is go to Makeupnet and find it in the Limecrime eye shadow section, go back to the video and comment the name of the colour! Its that simple. Australian subscribers only and it ends 19th March 2012. Winners will be selected randomly from the correct answers!

Onto some pictures of the finished look. (I look a little drunk in the eye shot but you can see what’s going on better)

Disclosure- Makeupnet sent me some products for the look but I’m not being compensated and I wouldn’t feature them if I didn’t like to wear them myself!

Valentines Day–Last minute tips!

Over here in the future (Australia) its Hallmark Valentines Day mourning morning. If you have anything exciting planned but don’t know what to do beauty wise ,(as you most likely already assumed after reading the first sentence I do not), I’ve compiled a little list to help you look your best!

Want to wear red lips but don’t want to end up looking like a certain Batman character after all that wining/dining/smooching?

Wear a red lip stain, besides not having to continually touch up a red lipstick all you have to do with a stain is keep those lips moist so a mere balm will do.

If you want your makeup look to stay put-

Applying cream blush under powder blush, eye shadow primer under shadows, lightly powder your foundation and ending with a makeup finishing spray, can help your look to last all night.

Want fluttery lashes?

Opt for some natural lashes (such an oxymoron), like Ardell Wispies. If you don’t have time then I’d suggest a good waterproof mascara.

Having a hair dilemma? Have a busy day and minimal time to get ready before the date?

I’d suggest one of my favourite hairstyles the simple half up half down. Looks great on straight/curly/ slightly messy hair and all you need is a little spray and pins. Bump up the top section for a little height (tease, if needed) spray, pin and then spray. Not too much spray, crunchy hair does not make for sexy hair.

94434923406130285_qAe4eqZD_cIf you are heat styling remember to give your hair some love too by using a heat protectant!

With all that said, make sure you are comfortable in the look you choose. Nothing worse than going out and feeling self conscious. I don’t do my makeup and hair to make anyone happy but myself and you shouldn’t completely change your look for someone else either!

Hope you all have a lovely day no matter what you are doing!

Black, Silver and Glitter a FOTD

For a while there I felt like I was drowning in a complete makeup rut, well a rut for me. I wasn’t putting in as much effort as I once did and so my news years resolution became start wearing fun makeup again! (When I say fun I really mean stop just doing neutral eye shadow, mascara and a bright lip.)

Christmas a FOTD

neautral glittery eye makeupAs the title suggest this is the makeup I wore on Christmas day. I got ready far too early but I had a full day of cooking so these morning shots will have to do! Yes my hair is different, yet again, I can’t seem to help myself with dyes lying around.

Recently BYS had a pretty awesome competition on their Facebook page and the first 50 to reply got a $50 gift pack, (see I told you it was awesome!). I was one of those lucky people that won and the eye palette I used was one of the items from my pack! The colours are decently pigmented and there was a little fallout so patting them onto your lids over a base works best ( but I’ll do a review so you can see) (more…)
