Face of Australia has recently released a new line of budget friendly lipsticks and look and feel decidedly luxe. How gorgeous is the packaging on these? I’m impressed with the staying power and finish of most of the Lasting Looks Lip Creme line – my favourite shades from the collection are Many Moons, Coral On, and Love Berry.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Silver Strike and Barely Branded

Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Silver Strike and Barely Branded

The Maybelline Color Tattoos are one of my favourite cream eyeshadow ranges, and I’m steadily increasing my collection. (I’ve reviewed Tough as Taupe, Bad to the Bronze, Bold Gold, and Pomegranate Punk)

Barely Branded and Silver Strike are part of their new(ish) Color Tattoo Metal collection, and I was pretty keen to try these after reading rave blog reviews. They did not let me down- holy cow the formula is good. As good as, if not better, than many higher end cream shadows that I’ve tried.

Bronze and Indigo Smoky eye FOTD with Laura Mercier Deep Night

Bronze and Indigo Smoky eye FOTD Makeup tutorial

Hello there

This is a makeup look that I photographed almost a month ago when I was working in Canberra. I’m very behind with my posts!

MAC Patina eyeshadow is a gorgeous light brown with a neutral golden sheen. I haven’t worn it often in the past because it’s quite sheer and doesn’t last very long on my eyes- but recently I discovered that my Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad To The Bronze is a wonderful base for these type of shades. With the Color Tattoo, the shade becomes opaque and Patina lasts all day.

Holiday Season Makeup: Silver Khaki Eye, Peach Lips

Holiday Season Makeup: Silver Khaki Eye, Peach Lips

Holiday Season Makeup: Silver Khaki Eye, Peach Lips

 

Hello!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays everyone. I’m taking a break from nomadic life and spending the silly season with the family in Sydney, which I still call home even though there is a big chance that I won’t be living in this city for a long time. Most of my belongings are still in boxes, and I’ve done pretty well with one large makeup bag for the past 2 months living out of a suitcase (although I have purchased a few items along the way).

I’ve had quite a few people request step-by-step or video tutorials for my FOTDs over the past couple of years, and I’ve only just overcome my laziness to start photographing my makeup from start to finish. It actually doesn’t take that much longer, so I’ll be doing shooting start to finish for the majority of FOTDs from now on.

Still trying to figure out how to build collages without totally degrading the picture quality- let me know if there is a good way to do it outside of photoshop and I will love you forever! Picmonkey.com and Picasa are so user friendly and fun to use, but they seem to take an axe to image quality.
