Bubblegum, MUG Inspired

 A little while ago now, I finally had gotten around to watching Marlena from Makeupgeek tv on youtubes' last cocktail inspired look.. (I'm sorry I forget the name now, Berry Mojitio?- I'll look it up later) but straight away I was inspired by the colour combo & placement. Well I guess you can't say this is inspired- I just wanted to try her tutorial exactly how she did it. & I love it!!

More Nakedness~

Hey beautifuls. Still been really busy & haven't had a chance to go on blogger since last week! Hopefully it's slowed down more. Updates about the new job later!

So I still love playing around with my Naked palette & finding out new combos. You will see a ton of work looks with them since its so easy to reach for in the morning.
This is one of my fave combos from the palette, which I find is a  gorgeous sexy smokey eye. I wore this to work & had a horrible customer that day who abused me, (retail- that figures!) & I cried when she left :( So I ruined my makeup dammit, & we were going out for tea that night but we were going to the gym beforehand anyway so I had to redo it.

Bird Inspired #1 Parot

Hey everyone! Another quick post, no time to check in!
In our backyard we have a lattice set up where we keep a bird bell (bird seed in the um shape of a bell lol). Quite often we have some Parots (or some sort of colourful bird haha- not too sure which species- maybe Lorikeets? ) that are usually in pairs but sometimes we can have up 5 at one time. Anyway... I have been meaning forever to use their gorgeous colours as inspiration.
Hard to see how bright their colours are.

My fave way to wear blues

Hey guys! I thought I would save some posts as drafts if I am going to busy, that way it will feel like I'm still here :)
So this is a look that I did a few weeks ago, & I have to say it is probably my fave way to wear blues without going OTT. Most people are intimidated by it, I think they have a phobia of looking 80's but I've learned that there's a lot of ways to wear it without looking like Mimi!
I don't know how I look so 'warm' here!!!

Dramatic Gold with red lips + update

Firstly, the update: Some of you may have read that I am doing a beauty traineeship... well I am actually starting next week!! So for the first few weeks I will still probably be working nights at my other job.. so I will finish early at the salon then go across town (luckily the town isn't too big haha) to that job & by the end of the day I will be exhausted!! But then I will be keeping only 2 nights at that place so it wont happen all the time.. but unfortunately for me it will be less time to blog & check out other blogs :(

Anyhoo the other weekend we had to help with some makeup for a local fashion show!! It turned out to be plenty of other salons there as well to do makeup & a few people to do hair so we didn't do too many people. More talk of that at the end of the post.

For this day (I had to work in the morning) I did a gold eye using the Naked palette (haa, well had to do makeup at the SO's place in the morning so it was easier to transport) & a quick winged eye which only took me like 2 minutes but I reaally like how it turned out.. I guess I should stop blabbing & move on to the pics, eh?

Smoke & Glitter~ Pic Heavy

So this is a delayed post from the other weekend.. we had hired out a bus for my aunties birthday & decorated it & went out for tea to a place that's about 25 minutes out of town.. by the time we had picked everyone up it took us over an hour & we had (between us girls) 5 bottles of champagne 0_o
Anyway, I went smokey again but decided to add some glittaa & I was going to do lashes but ran out of time 'coz I did my aunties makeup before..... pics of that at the end!

So of course I went over & swatched about 20 different products onto my hand baha. They also had some of the Covergirl Lip Perfection colours but not a very huge colour selection. & then lastly as I went up to the counter I looked in the bargain bin & they had some really nice polishes for $5!!

Inglot Prize! + Pixiwoo Inspired Purple + Pink

So I actually received it last week, by 'It' I mean the Inglot prize from Amalia which consists of 3 concealers & 2 lipsticks in a palette. Yayy my first Inglot products! & if this is anything to go by, I can't wait until the day I buy some of their eyeshadows!
Amalia sent them to me with the palette empty & the products separately in plastic. When I first swatched them they felt extremely creamy, & maybe a bit melted (who knows, it came from the sunny U.S to winter in Aus so that may have affected it) but now I can tell they are just extremely creamy!! I have used them everyday since I've received them & they apply so smoothly & last all day!! (well not quite all day, I haven't tested them that far)
        & for the lipsticks... gorgeous colours! the 1st one is more cherry & the other one more blue-based. I haven't actually used the 2nd one yet which I must! Only bad thing is that I cannot take this palette in my bag with me for touchups :(.
        Oh I should probably describe the palette- Quite heavy & sturdy, & very magnetic. To get the lid off you need to push it from the corner. If I wanna pick up the products I just put the end of the lid near it & it picks them up.
