It has been a very long time! I have so much to talk about, so here is another product review for you all.
I am so excited to be sharing with you all my comments on the Too Faced, Naked Eye palette. I was so excited when I got this palette and it has not disappointed me one bit.
Lets face it, every girl should own a neutral eye palette that suits her skin tone and eye colour, and ladies this is one that will definitely be worth it. I love using this palette for those busy days when I don’t have time for heavy blending, however don’t be fooled this palette can create some gorgeous dramatic looks worthy of any special occasion.
The colour range that you get in the Too Faced, Naked Eye palette is amazing. The eyeshadows are gorgeous, some of the shades are pigmented, they are all true to what they look like in the pan and are so wearable. You can use the shadows in the suggested ways that are shown in the palette, but I find that because the colours are so complementary I am able to try different colour combinations that have a stunning effect. Many of the shades can be used as a highlight under your brow bone and in the inner corners of your eyes. Basically, all the shades in this palette are so versatile and you can achieve any look using these neutral but dramatic shades. The eyeshadows go on easy, they have a great texture and can be easily applied. They blend very easily and because of this you can really achieve a flawless look.
The packaging is so cute, it is sturdy and the colours stay put. It also comes with three handy cards that give you complete eye looks using this palette.
My overall rating is 9.5/10 – I really enjoy using this palette, the colours, texture and pigments are amazing. It is my go to palette and I use it for almost every look.
I hope this inspires you to think more about neutral shades and to use them in your everyday or evening looks.
Have a great day and remember stay sweet xoxo
It has been a long long time. Soo sorry, life has been super busy!
I wanted to share with you my favourite primer products and emphasize why it is so important to use a primer before makeup application.
Using a makeup primer is the best way to make your makeup stay on for longer. Their aim is to prepare the skin for the makeup application, they pamper the skin and create a protective base for longer- lasting, natural looking foundation
application and wear. Primers give the makeup something to grab onto and help your makeup last longer, because they create a smooth and perfect surface. A primer is something you put on as a barrier between your skin and foundation. the reason for using a primer is that it makes your skin smoother and you don’t need as much foundation to get a beautiful finish.
My favourite primers are:
Benefit thePOREfessional, it minimize the appearance of pores & fine lines for smoother-than-smooth skin! Apply this silky, lightweight balm alone, under or over makeup.
Tip: I use thePOREfessional on my skin alone for days when I do not want to wear any makeup, it even outs my skin tone
and makes my pores appear smaller.

Benefit dr.feelgood, this primer mattifies shine, the weightless balm leaves your skin feeling silky-soft. Fabulous for mid-day touch-ups. It can be worn alone, under or on top of makeup. This primer is great if you are prone to oiley skin.
Tip: Reapply with a sponge for instant mid-day mattification that’s better than blotting papers! Works best when pressed onto the skin in a patting motion.
Benefit dr feelgood primer
Mac Prep and Prime skin, is an ultra-fluid lotion formulated with special-effect silicones. It calms and soothes the skin, blots away excess oil, and evens out skin redness. It improves the laydown and application of foundation or powder.

It has been a while since I last posted my Fashion Friday outfit posts, the fashion has still been happening on Friday’s, but things have been crazy busy!
So after work last week, my husband and I went for a walk to an alley way off Bourke Street Melbourne, to take this photo. We thought that this was the perfect location considering the outfit that I was wearing. After that we went straight home for pasta and for some much needed rest.
I decided to wear my leather pants from Portmans, I have had them for a while but needed some courage to wear them to work. The reception was great, people loved the look and it generated some office buzz on a Friday! I paired my leather pansts, with a gorgoues deep red knit from Zara and some amazing black suede ankle boots from Sportsgirl.
For accessories, I wore my Michael Kors gold watch, my Tiffany and Co earrings and bracelet.
For my makeup, I used some new exciting products and opted for a statement lip. I wore my Mac Studio Fix fluid foundation, setting it with my Mac Studio Fix powder. I used Mac peaches blush and NARS albatross highlighter to emphasis the top of my checks and brows. I used Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner and created a winged cat eye and finished the look off my NARS lip pencil in Damned. I loved my makeup that day, it was simple but worked so well with the outfit and I felt dramatic without having a whole lot of makeup on.
The look was so fun and in trend, the different textures paired together with the colour combination worked so well. I loved wearing my leather pants with a knit jumper, pairing the two with ankle boots really gave it that edge.
Try pairing different textures and colours for this Autumn and Winter.
Have a great day guys and stay sweet xoxo

For all my green eyed beauties, here are my top 3 tips to having captivating green eyes!
1. Play with purples – Bring out your gorgeous green eyes with makeup that is red-based. To widen the look of close-set eyes, apply shades of deep plum eye shadow toward the outer edges and a lighter shader of purple toward the inner eye. If your eyelids are a little droopy, do the opposite. Avoid purples with blue undertones, as well as blue eye shadow and eyeliner. Dark green, lavender, purple, plum or lilac tones work best for green eyed ladies. Gold and copper are great for highlighting green eyes. A general rule of thumb for green eyes is to choose warm shades vs. cooler shades.
2. Avoid silver – If you want to experiment with metallics, avoid silver shades on the eyes. However, bronze, copper and gold looks absolutely fabulous with green eyes for the evening. Brown or dark green eyeshadow with flecks of gold are also terrific choices.
3. Skip the black eyeliner – Everyone loves black eyeliner but it isn’t the best choice for green-eyed beauties. Use chocolate brown liner for everyday. To spice things up, try grey or gold. To open up your eyes and make them pop, add a little white eyeliner to the inner corner near the tear duct.
Follow these tips and you will be the envy of all friends. I hope this helps and inspires you to try different shades and techniques.
Stay sweet xoxo
