Completely Cosmetics Part 3 (Eyeshadows)


Eyeshadows are used to highlight the eyes. They can be available as powders, creams, liquids that make you SHINE!!!!!

A line of eyeshadow is softer and easier to blend than a pencil. 

Liquids and creams contain more preservatives like salt, brine, vinegar which can cause a negative reaction.

It is best to use POWDER shadows, especially matte powder eye shadows. 

Apply foundation, then powder to the eyelids so that the eyeshadow will set better and not crease.

A woman’s eyes are her most naturalistic facial feature. 

When we talk to people, we look into each other’s eyes. 

The colours you choos express your creativity and shows who you are. Naturally, if you are a girly girl you choose pinks! 

For a “day look”, you usually would opt for earthy browny tones. Once you choose a favourite brand, look at ALL colours to determine your BEST colour.

I recently bought a 88 Matte Colour Eyeshadow Palette from BH Cosmetics.


It has a WIDE range of colours to choose from!!!! 

Thanks to BH Cosmetics for such a wonderful range of product!!!

Completely Cosmetics (Part 2) Lipsticks


635981642845981865-843042002_girlthings

Lipsticks add a sheer touch by setting the tone and adding colour to the face. What colour you wear is vital and is key, for when you are either out shopping or dining out at a restaurant. You can choose so many different types of lipsticks, from L’Oreal, to Revlon, Mary Kay, Chanel, MAC, Sephora, Charlotte Tilbury, the list is endless.

I love to wear pinky tones, because I am really girly-girl, I could have pink everything but my room’s not pink! I am just definite at wearing pink lipstick, as it shows my personality. I hardly wear red, only for really special occasions.

The most luminous lipstick I love is the Queen Lipstick / Matte Revolution. It gives a full plump look and the colour is pretty and bright. It has a great matte lip effect, and is totally flattering.

Completely Cosmetics (Part 1) Finding the right foundation


beauty-products

When choosing a foundation you need to take into consideration your skin type and shades available. The colour you choose is VERY important. ALWAYS make sure that you test the foundation in natural light. When in a store or pharmacy the bright lights may not show the colour right.

If you have oily skin, it is best to use OIL-FREE foundations, such as:

Revlon’s New Complexion Oil Free

The light weight formula gives you a perfectly smooth, even tones skin.

I love using MAC STUDIO FIX which I always buy from either the Myer or David Jones department store. It gives a total matte finish, which gives a flattering, natural look, and is $50.

Completely Cosmetics (Introduction)


top_banner_aus_cosmetics

Australian consumers spend well over $20 million a year on cosmetics. Studies show that physical appearance plays an important part in our social interactions, interpersonal relations and job success.

Traditionally, cosmetics were used simply to beautify or decorate the skin.

Cosmetic counters are now stocked high with potions and creams that will rejuvenate our skin, prevent wrinkles or modify the ageing process.

Cosmetics have actually been used for over 4000 years! Greeks used lanolin (which is sheep’s wool) as a moisturizer in AD 100, Romans took milk baths and also used powder to make themselves whiter! Powder was also used in the Elizabethan era.

The purpose of cleansers is to remove dirt and makeup from the skin. There are three types of cleansers available. Soaps should not be used on the face, although soaps are very effective for cleaning the skin.

For example, you can use Neutrogena – Liquid Fresh Cleanser and Makeup remover.

To buy on the Neutrogena website click HERE. I use this product daily even if I don’t wear makeup that day!

Music for the soul (lovely thoughts)


music-notes

Because its the weekend, and I didn’t have anything new planned to write about, I thought I would do something a little different! I have just finished watching the Bulldogs beat the Sydney Swans in the Grand Final, and I am stoked! As The Bulldogs trained near where I lived in Footscray, so it was my hometown that won the Grand Final!!!!! I feel so proud, and happy about it!

So after the Grand final I put on “Belle’s Magical World” a sequel to Beauty and the Beast – (well, it’s more like short stories) for something light hearted to watch, and a particular song that came on, I really liked the lyrics, so I thought I would share! Because it is beautiful, lovely and sweet…… and poetic!

A Little Thought

Did you ever wonder what it’s like
To wonder from a different point of view?
To try and see life differently
While doing what somebody else might do?
Imagine seeing through a set of different eyes
You just might be surprised
You just might realize
That somebody might be wondering
And wonder what it’s like to be like you

A little thought
A little care
A little “when you ever need me, I’ll be there”
A little give
A little take
A little “it’s ok to make a small mistake”
A little time
A little space
A little chance to help somebody find their place
It isn’t much, but it means a lot
It’s not a little thing to have a little thought

Here’s another song lyric that I like that you can read!

Listen with our hearts

There are times I think
That no one seems to listen
There are times I think they listen
but don’t hear
There are times I think they hear
But something’s missing
The thoughts behind the words aren’t clear
So, I think they’re saying
something they’re not saying
They think I mean something
I don’t mean at all
Do we raise our voice miscommunicating?
Or simply say nothing at all
Is there another way to say it
In a way that can be heard?
Let me see if I can put it into words

I can hear you, you can hear me
When we listen with our hearts
I understand you, you understand me
That’s the place where we can start
Words of kindness and forgiveness
Bring us closer, not apart
When we speak our minds
And listen with our hearts

I can hear you, you can hear me
When we listen with our hearts
I understand you, you understand me
That’s the place where we can start
Words of kindness and forgiveness
Bring us closer, not apart
When we speak our minds
And listen with our hearts

Do you play an instrument?

Do you love music? Or are a creative writer? Or ever had a go at writing songs?

Music is an art that has been used for generations and centuries for entertainment, cultural activities and pleasure. People love going to concerts, and theatre, and I was a BIG theatre enthusiast when living in Melbourne! Theatre is a massive thing there. Two Saturdays ago I was able to go to “The Sound of Music” in Perth, and I absolutely LOVED it!!!! Leisle has always been my favourite character and my favourite part is when she dances and sings with the boy singing “I am sixteen going on seventeen”!

What is your favourite theatre production?

Mine is “Love never dies” but I did love “Annie”!

Or your favourite theatre that you like to go to?
