Summer/ Spring fresh colours + current nails

Oh man I wish I had a name idea before I start doing my makeup, but as I choose the colours as I was doing it, it makes it harder to come up with names.
Onto the makeup.. I was not so happy with the crease but ya get that. I wanted to something bit brighter then lately but still simple at the same time, so I kept the lower lash line free of colour (except for a tiny bit that I didn't mean to get there haha).

How to: Cream Contouring & Highlighing

I like to do contour & highlight for a put together look especially for a night out & it adds a lot of dimension to your face, especially since I feel like I have no cheekbones. I used to only do it with powders but I find that doing it with cream concealers that are a few shades darker/ lighter than your skin tone help it look more polished plus you can still set it with the powders on top.

Aussie Pride... Nail art on my toes :)

I'm getting all prepared for Australia Day, which is on the 26th this month. I can't wait to spend all day in the pool and have a barbie & a few drinks! hehe.
I know there's a few aussie's on here, but for those who are not, Australia Day is usually spend by going to the beach, having a bbq or meat pies, playing backyard or beach cricket & drinking! haha.

Anyhoo, I was mucking around with my nail polish & thought heyy why not copy the flag onto my toe nails! haha, its much easier than doing it on my finger nails :P Beware if you do not like to look at toes up close.

Sorry that it looks quite messy, it looks a lot better from a distance for sure.
No Flash

The Rubi nail polish (base colour) is quite cheap & nasty, I purchased it from Cotton On but its the only colour like that I have, The red is Nicole By O.P.I OMB (Justin Bieber collection), the white & blue sparkle nail polishs are both from Phuket & the Sally Hansen X-treme wear in clear is for the top coat. I also used a dotting tool from ebay for the red parts of the flag.

And of course, the flag.
Thanks for looking! <3 To all the Aussies out there happy Australia Day!

I'm sorry that its hard to see the makeup, I didn't have much time for close up shots!

All that glitters: Fancy dress for New Years Eve

I hope everyone had a fun & safe new years!! Where I am we don't get fireworks, but we had a spectacular lightning show! (it was fine that day until the arvo, how typical). So my new years attire was a bit different from normal as we attended a dress up party haha, and we were going to change before we went out but decided not to. Although we got a fair few comments while we were out lol!
