Inglot Galaxy Eyes/ New Years Eve | FOTD

 Firstly, I want to apologize for being so absent! I've been a terrible beauty blogger, but the thing that has been setting me back is not being able to access it on my phone. I can look at my blog, but I can't log in and post drafts like I normally do so it's very frustrating. And I'm usually too lazy to get out my computer or if I am using it, I'm doing other things.

Anyway, this is definitely not a "of the day" post seeing how this makeup is quite a bit older now, but of course I still wanted to post it! I did this before I got the Vice 2 palette, after seeing a video from Thatgirlshaexo & realizing that I have very similar colours anyway. Now that I have that palette, they are indeed similar but I can still see differences, so I don't feel as guilty for having similar colours.
All the colours I needed happened to be in my Inglot palette, but I think it's a very dupable look.

Wow on my screen my face looks extremely photoshopped, I can assure you that it's not!

Nyx Lip Liner Collection | Review & Swatches

Lip liners are usually disregarded and I admit I don't use them as often as I should & only if I "need" to, so I don't believe in spending a lot of money for them! I love the Nyx lip liners, because they are so affordable and they have a huge selection of colours.

6 of the Nyx lip liners I have are the slim lip pencil & 1 long lip pencil, honestly I'm not sure what the difference between them are apart from the length of them. I like to buy them on Ebay from Joys Cosmetics because if you buy more than one it becomes cheaper! & I've been buying from them for years & have never had a problem [By the way, she now stocks Real Techniques brushes at a really good price! (N/A)]

Whats Your Vice [2]? | Urban Decay Palette Review & Swatches

Although it's been out for a couple of months I have only just got my hands on the Urban Decay Vice 2 palette, which is my first "colourful" one from them! I knew I wanted it ever since i missed out on the first addition last year.
It's a bit sad that Urban Decay doesn't ship internationally, and I wasn't sure where else I could get one without going through a mail forwarding service, so when I posted about it on Instagram one of my US followers who I've "known" for a few years offered to buy it & send it over for me, I was so happy!
Of course afterwards I found the website which is basically is a mail forwarding service from Sephora so the prices are different to what you'd find through Urban Decay, and then I didn't realize it was actually on Beautybay which I've used a fair few times!

How to perfect your lipstick | Pictorial

 Sometimes just chucking on a lipstick isn't going to cut it, especially with some formulas that like to make their way over your face, or does that just happen to me?
I've found that applying my lipstick this way, using different lip liners & doing it in different layers helps it to stay put & last a lot longer, too. This is not something that I do everyday but when I have time & I'm wearing a bolder lip colour I like to spend a bit more on the lips.

Spring Fling Makeup | FOTD

 Hey guys I apologize profusely for the lack in posts lately! I was relying on my phone to post my drafts as I wanted to but it's still not allowing me to log in, and I've barely had any time to get on the computer properly lately :/

But anyway, I feel like I've barely worn any typical spring makeup as it has taken a while for the weather to change from cold & miserable but when we get a warm day, it gets hot!
Because of the slow transition I've been doing whatever I feel like with my makeup, but I do have a few products I've been saving particularly for spring that I haven't gotten good use out of but I can still carry them into summer.
And in case you're wondering, this isn't a Spring Fling look as so (that's a school event in the US or something, right?) but it's one of my favourite ways to wear spring appropriate makeup!

Buxom Full On Lip Polish | Review

One of the last minute buys that I knew I would regret not buying in America was the Buxom Full On Lip Polish. After hearing about it from Shaaanxo on Youtube & knowing that Sylvia from MakeupAsExpression loves them too,I had to test it out.
 I found it hard to pick out which colour I wanted! They all seemed fairly sheer but there were so many similar colours, in the end I had to keep re-swatching before I settled on Katie.

Glammed Up | Royal Blue & Silver Ball Makeup

Hey beauties!
A couple of weekends ago we went to a charity ball called The Ball Of Hope to raise money for mental health & Telethon which is an annual Western Australian fundraising organization that raises money for children with illness, so it was a good cause to get dressed up & help contribute towards that. In fact the Telethon child for this year is a girl from my home town so it felt even more meaningful. It was a fun night, we enjoyed a photo booth that they had where you dress up with props. But of course the fun part was getting ready.

You will see my dress in a moment, I was so excited to get and it got here with one week to spare so I was very thankful for that. With the makeup, of course I wanted it to be glamorous & I took the colour theme for my dress and hoped it wouldn't look too matchy-matchy.

Apologies for the pic heavy post!
