Fashion Friday Outfit

Hi Lovelies,

My inspiration for this outfit, was my shirt from Tobi, an online store which has great, unique clothes at an affordable price.

When I walked into work on casual friday, which I commonly call fashion friday, my colleagues coined the term, farm chic and farm glamping! I do have to say, I definitely did feel like I had an edgy farm vibe!!

I paired my cute blue and grey flannel top, with my favourite light denim boyfriend jeans from Dotti, which just have the right amount of style rips and my new Pronto Black heels from Lipstick shoes. These shoes are a dupe for a similar pair that were in Zara, which unfortunately Melbourne Zara never got.

For makeup I went with warm neutral tones and used one of my favourite nude toned lipsticks from Mac called, Honey Love. My hair was straight but I added some volume with big sexyhair, play and spray and I really feel that my ombre (balayage/dip dye) hair was perfect with this look. Overall, I really loved this outfit, it was edgy but still feminine at the same time, as well as being on point with current styles that are popular at the moment.

I hope you like it, enjoy!

Stay sweet xoxo

Urban Decay Ammo Palette Review

Urban Decay Ammo Palette

Urban Decay Ammo Palette

Hi Lovelies,

It’s that time again, product review! Today I will be talking about the re -released Ammo Palette from Urban Decay.

I must admit, when I saw this palette I thought wow, look at those pigmented shadows and immediately knew I could have some fun. I was a little worried that they would be too glittery, but honestly this is not the case.

The Ammo palette includes Urban Decay’s best selling eyeshadows, which are: Smog (deep coppery bronze shimmer), Mildew (mossy green shimmer with gold shift), Oil Slick (black matte with silver micro-glitter), Last Call (metallic plum shimmer), Chopper (copper shimmer with silver micro-glitter), Maui Wowie (metallic golden beige shimmer with silver glitter), Shattered (turquoise shimmer with a gold shift), Polyester Bride (white snow shimmer with silver micro-glitter),Grifter (sheer lavender shimmer with silver micro-glitter), and Sin (champagne shimmer).

These eyeshadows are part of Urban Decays usual colour range, however the formula has recently been improved. The colours are very build-able, with my swatches, I packed the colour on so you could see the true pigments. Based on that, it is up to you how far you want to go with the eyeshadow colours.

However, I will say this, when applying the shadow there is quite a bit of fall out, so when you are done you will need to go over the under eye area. This is not a deal breaker for me, I think that this is to be expected when you have amazing colours like these in the Ammo palette and not to mention the price.

In my opinion this is fantastic, fun and creative palette, in which every girl can enjoy themselves and create gorgeous looks that they would not usually dream of. Urban Decay have such fun palettes and I feel that the Ammo palette is one for those special occasions or when you want to add some wow to your makeup look.

This palette can also accommodate women of any age group. My mum and sister actually choose this for me as a gift. And I recall my mum saying that she loved the colours and would wear them herself.

The pigments are amazing, the texture is smooth and buttery and longevity is also good, I think this also has to do with the excess fallout when applying, this makes the eyeshadow last longer.

My overall rating: 7/10 – Urban Decay did it again and created a gorgeous palette for every woman.

I hope this helps lovelies, have a great day and remember stay sweet xoxo

Sneak peak tutorial Bold Lip makeup look

Hello to all my fellow makeup and fashion addicts!

I am so excited to share with you all my upcoming tutorial on my makeup channel. The next video is sure to inspire you with your own take on a bold lip makeup look.

I was inspired by a recent purchase of bold lipstick colours. I used an amazing product NARS velvet matte lip pencil in Damned. I paired the look with beautiful brown and grey tones, using my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and my Too Faced Naked Eye Palette. I paired the look with flawless skin, peach blush and a dramatic winged eyeliner. All the products used will be listed in the video.

I was also influenced to create this look by a beautiful H&M top that my mum recently bought for me from the states. I will be posting the photos of the complete outfit soon.

Having a bold lip is something that is very new to me. I must admit that most of my lip colours were pink, nude and very pale tones. So I recently went out and bought some dramatic lip colours,

This look is bold and gorgeous at the same time. I know that this will inspire you all to try new bold lip colours.

I hope you all enjoy it! Keep an eye out for the next video and please subscribe.

Have a great day and remember stay sweet! xoxo

Makeup Tip #1 Eyes

Makeup Tip#1 EYE PENCILS

To find the right pencil for you, test it on the back of your hand to achieve the right texture. If it is too dry, it won’t leave as much colour as you’d like and you could hurt yourself by having to apply it too hard. Pencils that are too soft, will undoubtedly smudge.

Hint 1 – For maximum precision, look for a soft yet firm tip.

Hint 2- For maximun hold, gently stretch and hold your eyelid closed with a finger while applying the pencil across the whole lid.

My favourite is Benefit cosmetics BAD gal liner

I hope this helps!

Night out in Brighton Melbourne!

Hi lovelies,

Check out this recent look I did for an engagement party in Brighton, Melbourne. It was a cocktail party, so I opted for a simple chic look.

I had my hair up in a bun and featured classic clean makeup, using peach and pink tones on my face and a cat eye liner on my eyes with apricot shadows to warm up the look .

I finished off the look with simple accessories of delicate bracelets and gold earrings paired with a feature ring.

I hope you all like it!

Enjoy your day and remember stay sweet! xo
