The Sydney Girl | Makeup Mix


I received Jane Iredale’s August collection in the mail a few months ago, which I’m wearing here. This range will be available in stores from April. My favourite is the lipstick lip plumper, which leaves your lips feeling fresh and minty. LURVE LURVE LURVE it.

In the lip plumper are spearmint and peppermint oils which increase blood circulation leaving them feeling minty cool and fresh, also shea butter, sunflower oil and aloe vera, which soften the lips.

The eyeshadow I’m wearing is actually that pink little tube you see above which comes out as a silky gloss. Super cool – I’ve never used an eyeshadow like that before. Here is another Jane Iredale review I did in November last year.

I’m really, really, really into makeup with natural ingredients now. I’m trying to find a good recipe for natural deodorant, cause I’m sick of using deodorants with all that aluminium – which isn’t good for the body at all. On another note, have a look at this VERY cool do it yourself lip scrub I found recently.

Revlon New Complexion Oil-Control Makeup

I’m really glad I got the opportunity to try out Revlon’s New Complexion Oil-Control Makeup before it hits stores in November, and share with you my thoughts.
For someone like me who likes to apply her foundation quite sheerly, but needs her face looking fresh and shine free, this makeup is fabulous. Applying it to the areas that need it, I can feel confident that my oily zones will remain unoily for the rest of the day!
It is best to apply the foundation with a makeup brush first, if you want a sheer coverage like me, and then use your fingertips to blend in a bit of moisturiser.

This Revlon makeup can be purchased for $24.95, from November, 2011.

makeup tips MAC lipliner
I’ve been really obsessed with lip liners lately, and have been using them instead of lipstick. It lasts longer and really looks smooth and matte on my lips. I dream of having a lip liner collection of all sorts of browns, pinks, burgundies and reds. Oh and orange. Must find myself the perfect orange liner!
makeup tips
P.s. I use tinted moisturiser on my lips instead of foundation, as tinted moisturiser acts as my foundation – I LOVE tinted moisturiser! 🙂 And to see what I use click here.

I also want to spread the word that there are no rules when it comes to make up. Be creative and don’t be afraid to try new things! Hugs & Love x

Lingerie *Exposed*

Was channeling this and didn’t even know it. I love the fact that these days I can just order to my hearts content online, and own gorgeous, special pieces in the next few days. Purchased this beauty from BonBon Lingerie Australia.
I like to mix pretty, feminine pieces with edgy, masculine ones.

Happy Weekend! And a happy long one for those who have Monday off for the Queens Birthday!
