Top 3 Makeup tips for blue eyes!

Hi Lovelies,

For all my blue eyed beauties, here are my top 3 tips to having fabulous blue eyes!

1. Pick the right eyeshadow – For the office, stick with brown, rose, lavender and neutral shades. For a special date, try metallics in silver and gold, turquoise and icy pink shades.

2. Experiement for the evening – For the evening, try a smokey eye look using grey, dark blue or purple shades.

A dark blue shade will bring out the natural blue tones in blue eyes, try dark blue shades combined with black shades for that wow factor.

3. Tone down your lips – Emphasize your gorgeous blue eyes, whether they are pale blue or deep sapphire, by toning down your lip color. Pick a matte lipstick in a peachy brown shade. For your cheeks, add a light sweep of blush in a very natural hue.

I hope this helps lovelies, try out these colour combinations for a glamouros look.

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

Edgy Floral Outfit Post!

Hi Lovelies,

I thought I would share with you a recent look I put together while filming my recent makeup tutorial. This look uses two very different styles, but somehow when put together they are a match made in heaven! The look is something in between a floral girlie style with a grunge edge.

The top is gorgeous and is from H&M, it is floral and has black panels on the sides and around the collar. Another beautiful feature of this top is the back, it has buttons all the way down, this adds to the feminine style of it. I decided to make this look more edgy and paired the top with my Portmans leather skinny pants and my Tony Bianco patent black heels.

I went simple with the accessories and wore a silver cuff from Lovisa, a grogoues silver and turquoise ring my sister got for me from Venice Beach LA and my Tiffany and Co silver ball earrings.

The makeup also made this look more bold and edgy, with the dark lipstick NARS Damned lip pencil and the cool browns and greys on my eyes. I used the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and the Too faced Naked Eye Palette. I finished off the look with Mac Cosmetics blush in peaches and highlighted my face with Mac’s Soft and Gentle highlighting powder.

I was so excited about this look and I will definitely wear this on a night out.

I loved this look, the combination of naughty and nice worked so well together, opposites do attract! I hope this inspires you to place different styles together and create a standout look for any occasion.

Enjoy my fellow fashion and makeup addicts and remember stay sweet xoxo

Wedding Night – Outfit Post

Hi Lovelies,

I recently went to a wedding and wanted to show you all my look that I was rocking.

I went hell for leather with this chic edgy look!

The dress is so on trend and was such great value. I bought it on sale from Target, can you believe! I added black strappy shoes from Novo and went for gold accessories. My matching necklace and earrings were from Colette and added some contrast and bling to the outfit.

I went all out with my makeup and wanted to pop and create drama. I used Chanel Perfection Lumiere foundation, paired with Mac Studio Fix powder to set the foundation. I used Mac Gleeful mineralise blush and Fix+ to set my makeup and to give me a dewy look. For my eyes, I used Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and used gold, brown and black colours all blended out. I added a black winged liner and used Benefit they’re real mascara. For the final addition to this look and the one that I was most excited about, I put Mac Ruby Woo lipstick on my lips.

The colour combination of the red lipstick, gold accessories and the black leather dress really worked together. I loved this look and will definitely wear it again.

I hope you enjoyed this outfit post and remember stay sweet xox

Fashion Friday Outfit post – Comedy Club Melbourne CBD

Hi Lovelies,

I thought I would share with you my fashion friday, outfit  post!

Friday after work I stayed back in the city and watched a comedy show with my husband and some friends, so of course I put together a fun outfit that was fun and comfortable.

I decided to wear my new favourite H&M top which my mum recently bought me from her trip to the States, it’s a gorgeous pink colour and has gold stud detailing, I paired my top with my black jeans from GAP and my tan/camel suede ankle boots from Sandler.

For accessories, I wore my guess watch, my Tiffany and Co bracelet and mesh earrings.

For my makeup, I used some new exciting products and opted for a dewy look with girlie pink lips. I wore Mac cosmetics Snob lipstick, which I love, it is a beautiful pink shade. I also had on my Chanel perfection lumiere foundation, orgasm blush from NARS and soft and gentle highlighter from Mac. I used my new Too Faced, Naked Eye palette and opted for pink and grey hues on my eyes.

The look was so fun and girlie, with the combination of pink from my H&M shirt and my Snob coloured lips.

Have a great day guys and 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
