My favourites of 2012!

I am quite late in this post, as January is almost over already but I've wanted to put together a post on my favorite makeup looks that I did last year! Although I still have some that I can't believe I haven't posted yet I will just put up the ones I posted on my blog. At the end I have a few fave products of last year.

A collage of a few makeup looks I did in 2012! Sorry it's not well done I don't have photoshop XD

Aussie Aussie Aussie! FOTD

Oi Oi Oi!

On Saturday was Australia Day, better known as "Straya Day" to some (in case you didn't know, we love our slang!) It is that awesome day where you beach it, bbq & drink and have fun with friends & family. This year my brother, his gf & our mate came down to celebrate with us on the long weekend.

No Mirror Makeup Challenge

This challenge has been going around on Youtube for a while & I've wanted to try it for a long time to see how I would go. Although it is harder to verify that you didn't cheat by not videoing it, I'm sure my makeup will hold the truth!
So I wanted to do a more difficult makeup look, I've seen some really easy ones! So I went with smoky eyes & red lips.... this shall be interesting!

Recent Nail Designs, obsessed with gradients!

I haven't properly posted my NOTW for a while so I've put together quite a few that I have done recently! We have had gel at my work for a little while so I was playing around with it a bit there but the truth was I missed playing with my colours which I did not want to neglect!

Ever since I used the cling-wrap method here I've wanted to do it again . Sadly I have to have my nails short for work- I've always had long nails so it sucks for me. =/

St Moriz Mousse Tan Review

Before the start of summer I had a goal: Start fake tanning! I tan pretty well in the sun, but that doesn't happen too often because I am I can be pretty adamant about reapplying sunscreen. A goal is to keep my skin looking as youthful as possible & not getting burnt helps!
Anyway, I knew I wanted to try and be more tanned this summer without needing to be in the sun, & I only needed to hear from one youtuber [[laurenbeautyy]] about a certain brand of tanning products and I pretty much bought it after she said the name, without reading any other reviews because it sounded too good to miss.

And the winner is....

Hey guys! The time has come for me to announce the giveaway winner. Thank you so much to all that entered, I enjoyed reading your 5 products! And to the winner I hope you enjoy the prize! ^.^

So the question I got you all to answer was "If you were stranded on a deserted Island what 5 products would you bring?" I may or may not have accidentally had it as "desert" island which I don't think is possible! Also if you were stranded you wouldn't be able to choose which products to bring & I doubt you would care about them :P Here are my 5 products...
1. Lucas Paw Paw Ointment: To use as a lip balm, for bites, (I attract all mosquitoes so it would come in handy), cuts & all that fun stuff.
2: Face of Australia Face Base Primer: a HG product for me that would double as a moisturizer.
3. Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation: Just because I love this foundation...
4. DMK Transdermal Sunscreen: Don't want to get burnt now....
5. Aand finally.... probably a dry shampoo because I could imagine it would get oily quickly!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congrats Erma! I will send an email but as for the 24 hour rule I will extend it as I recently won a giveaway but didn't find out til a week, & I would have been devastated if I found out I didn't win because I didn't reply straight away!

Hope to "see" you all in the future for more giveaways.

First product purchases for 2013

Although I technically ordered a couple of these products before the end of last year, I have received them within the new year with much excitement & unfortunately, a little bit of disappointment. So here are my newest acquired makeup products for the year.

First up, my number one baby at the moment. I have been wanting this for soo long so when it finally came back into stock from www.kissandmakeupny.com I had to buy it. I'm sure most of you have heard about it/seen it/ tried it before but it is everything & more. I don't have too many "high end" products so when I do get them I cherish them. It is the perfect colour, doesn't look muddy & orangey, it has a slight shimmer but nothing to upset the face if you use it for contouring, which it is good for, too.

Mini Review: Beauties Factory Brush Cleaner

I've needed a new brush cleaner for the longest time, & when I came across the Beauties Factory Brush Cleaner it was the perfect price to give it a go.
Brush cleaners are awesome for spot cleaning in between use although it should not be replaced with deep cleansing which I do not get to do as much as I'd like.. although it is quite the chore!

My NYE makeup

Hey guys, once again sorry for another late post with my New Years Eve makeup! I've been so busy this week to be able to get around to posting it. So I hope everyone had a great night partying, or whatever you did :) We had the hottest day on new years day that we've had in a long time.... 46.C or 115 F.! Which kinda sucked because it was way too hot for the beach :(
Anyway, it was humid on NYE especially when I was getting ready, so ignore the creasing!
