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

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

Fast Foundation Advice – Tip #2

Hi Lovelies,

Ever wondered what the best method of applying foundation is… well the answer is simple, it is simply a preference and what works well for you. However, here are some key application tips for different methods of applying foundation!

Fingers 

Using your fingers works well with liquid and cream foundation formulas. It can also provide you with the sheerest cover, as the warmth of your hands helps to melt the base onto your skin.

Tip – Make sure your fingers are clean

Sponges 

Sponges provide more coverage and are good for blending cream to powder or thicker liquid foundations.

Tip – When applying foundation with a sponge, tap, don’t rub the base into your skin. This will ensure you have an even finish

Foundation brush 

A foundation brush gives you a heavier, more velvety finish, because you are painting on a liquid or cream base. This is ideal if you are going for a flawless polished look.

Tip – Make sure you clean your foundation brush regularly 

My Favourite method off applying foundation is using a foundation brush.

My most loved product is the Sigma Flat Kabuki Brush F80. To see how it applies foundation, watch my youtube makeup videos on my channel MakeupbyDulcelissa.

Fast Foundation Advice – Tip #1

Hi Lovelies,

Foundation is probably one of the most important steps in creating a flawless look, so applying an undetectable base is the first step!

Here are some simple tips to ensure you make the right choices.

Tips:

If you’re shopping at a department store

#1 – Swipe three possible matches on your lower cheek or jawline (the shade should closely match your neck as well as your face)

#2 – Take a mirror and head towards a window or outside so you can see what it looks like in the natural light (very important)

#3 – The colour that fades into your skin without .much blending is the winner

If your shopping at a drug store/chemist 

#1 – Determine whether your skin tone is pale/medium or dark

#2 – Using your skin tone, use the bottle shade name as a guide

#3 – Pale skin tends to have redness, so it’s best that you stay away from pink-tonned foundation, look for colours like beige or buff to neutralise redness

#4 – If you are in the middle/medium look for tones that have warm undertones. Choose colours like warm , medium or golden.

#5 – Dark skin hues should look for colours like tan, sable or chestnut

Remember these handy hints next time you are looking for the right foundation. Be sure to keep in mind that the right foundation does not mask your face but simply blends out any of your imperfections and still shows the true beauty of your skin.

Enjoy your day loves and stay sweet xo

Makeup Tips #4 – Eyeshadow

Hi lovelies,

When it comes to eyeshadow, one of the more favoured techniques is the smokey eye.

To widen your eyes, use a lighter shade in the inner corner and fan outwards with a darker shade.

Hint 1 – Applying the eyeshadow with a brush will give your eyes a transparent look, which is always best.

Hint 2 – A small touch of iridescent powder on your corner of your eyelids will make them look larger, as well as a lighter shade dusted on your brow bones just under the eyebrows.

Hint 3 – An essential component of a smokey eye is creating the v shape on the outer corner of the eye and remember always blend your eyeshadow.

My favourite brushes – Sigma beauty makeup brushes.

I hope this helps.

Stay sweet xoxo

Makeup Tip #3 – Cat eye liner

Hi lovelies,

If you use gel eyeliners to create a cat eye effect, a good tip is to always pick a thin and supple brush to create the look. Remember not to put too much liner on the brush, this will be the best way to prevent smearing and runs.

Have a great day and remember stay sweet! xoxo

My new favourite is MAC black track liner

Makeup Tip #2 Eye Pencils

Makeup tips #2 – Eye Pencils

Did you know that eye kohl pencils should be warmed up first with your hands, this will make the colour more dramatic when applied on your eyes or water line.

Hint – Apply your kohl pencil between your lashes for greater depth. Lightly pulling on your eyelid will help draw colour underneath. Finish off the look by smudging the liner with a brush but beware of closing off the outer corner, it can result in a heavy look.

My favourite eye pencil is MAC cosmetics eye Kohl pencil in TEDDY.

Hope this helps!
