7 Genius Makeup Tricks That Shave Years off Your Look Makeup


Makeup is one of the most important things for a girl. Every girl wants to look attractive and beautiful all the times. To do so is impossible nowadays. Women have to do work both in office and at home. They have to expose their skins under the sun, and they work hard for getting the finance they need to facilitate themselves. Before some decades the trend used to be much different.

Girls used to work at home, and it was the responsibility of male to earn capital, but now the trend has changed. In today’s era male and female have to work together to move constantly with time.

This work makes a woman much busier and indulges them much in work. At this time nobody can think of makeover. The girls who are possessive towards their facial expression usually opt surgery and operation. This causes a higher finance and gives much pain.

Surgery creates an artificial look and shine which can be spotted very easily. This makes many girls curious about anyway which requires less time and gives the fairness and smooth skin they intend to have.

Every working woman is getting much older with time, but they have no solution to avoid this. But even in this difficult time nature is still very helpful and some accessories can have a potential to make us younger in no time.

1- Fairness cream
To look beautiful the most important thing is the fairness. To gain fairness, you can use a fairness cream. First of all, you must decide a natural cream with fewer chemicals and harmful material.

2- Face-wash
The face wash is a material used to give you a smooth skin. Face-wash is to be used instead of soap to wash your face. A face-wash helps you get a smooth skin by removing the unessential from your face.

3- Sun-screen
Sun-screen helps you avoid the harmful rays emitted by the sun. It acts as a medium to reflect the dangerous rays such as the UV rays.

4- Mascara
Best tube mascara can be very efficient to give you a cute look. This mascara has a very thin and dark line which can get broader according to the requirements.

5- Cleansing
A cleanser is used to clean the dirt and the spots on the skin. What it helps is to avoid the growth of pimples and dark spots.

6- Lip-gloss
The modern-day upgrade to lipstick is a lip-gloss. It gives a glossy look to a girl to make her look younger day by day.

7- Diet
It is very important to remain on a diet. A diet helps us gain a better shape of a body. With inhaling more fats not only causes our belly fat to increase but it also makes the structure of our face much wider.

Traversing Travel – plus a few more beauty products! 


This week has been one hectic killer of a ride! I have had to move from small country town, Merredin to Scarborough (the sunny side of WA) all within a couple of days & which is a three hour drive, but it has been great! And I feel ready to take on the world! Well, my world. It is a transition changing from favourite coffee spots to new places in Western Australia that I haven’t been to before! 

First stop. Lawley’s. 

I had a chicken and cheese and avocado roll and chilled for a bit before heading off to the chemist.

You can also organise high teas at this cafe. Availability is Monday to Thursday and their phone number is 9245 6264.

You can also check out their website here

When I got to the chemist my eyes popped open at all the products that were on display! I’m a big beauty product fanatic if you haven’t noticed and I am always on the look out for something new. 

I bought a Dove Summer Glow Tanning Lotion which is great for pre-summer. Today was sunny so I loved walking in the sun trying to get some vitamin D. It will keep my skin richly moisturised during any season! 


Here are a few products to consider:



You can find them all at your local pharmacy if you’re in Australia, otherwise you may just need to google the product name and do a bit of online shopping! 

I also bought a few mags of course!!!!!! (How unlike me, lol) 



And had a walk through the neighbourhood. 


How lovely are these roses!


Lavender is a favourite of mine also.

Well, for now I will leave you with these photos of beauty products, and get back to watching my morning Netflix! Well, it’s actually afternoon! 😝 Coffee ☕️ is calling my name!

Completely Cosmetics (Part 4) Eyeliners


The function of the eyeliner is to frame and define the eyes.

I love the 60’s look with the BOLD eyeliner to accentuate the eyes. 

You can use either pencil or liquid. I tend to use pencil for everyday use and liquid for evening and special occasions. 

Liquid eyeliner can be a bit iffy and hard to apply. It only looks effective if you can create a VERY thin line. 

I think you need to be picky when choosing liquid eyeliners.

Today I bought a Savvy By DB Kohl eyeliner in Granite. 


It is a great everyday use eyeliner and only $5 at Priceline Pharmacy.


I will be using this NON – STOP!!!!! And there are more products on my shopping list. 


What is your favourite eyeliner?

Do you like using eyeliners?

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.

makeup-ideas-and-brushes02

 

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

Revlon’s New Complexion Oil Free

revlon-foundation

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.

Fortnum & Mason Favourites


fortnum-and-mason

 

I have come across a few favourites……. Well, ALOT actually……

I couldn’t help myself but google Fortnum and Mason today. It has been a dream the past couple of years to visit London, and enjoy a high-tea there. It is on my LIST! I haven’t visited London just yet, but I know that I will get there one day! There is something about that place, coffee shops, museums, art galleries, bookshops, and so much MORE!!!! I enjoy watching “Ladies of London” every now and then too.

Find here a number of items I found on F&M’s website – ROYAL COLLECTION

I am in LOVE with this pink mug, Halycon Days Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Mug in Pink

QUEENS 90th PINK MUG

Halycon Days is a London brand. It is an English fine bone china mug that is finished with an intricate trellis design. Featuring a wreath of golden flourishes that frames the inscription ‘In Celebration of the 90th Birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, 21st April 2016’, this mug makes a wonderful addition to any home.

I am LOVING the GIFT section. They have a WIDE range of Bath and Body, Skincare, Handbags and purses, fragrances, jewellery, scarfs, flowers, tea, china and silverware, and hampers! There is so much to shop!!!!

There are TWO kinds of tea that I want to buy.

Queen Anne Blend Tea

Created in 1907, this popular blend is named after the monarch who was on the throne in the year that Fortnum & Mason actually began. The smooth blend of carefully selected TGFOP Assam and Ceylon FBOP teas produces a strong, smooth tea that is refreshing at any time of day.

QUEEN ANNE BLEND TEA

 

Royal Blend Tea

This luxury tea is classic. It has ceylon and assam. It was actually first blended for King Edward VII in the summer of 1902, Royal Blend has been popular ever since for its smooth, almost honey-like flavour.

ROYAL BLEND TEA

There is also a tea towel that I absolutely ADORE!

It is ‘Her Majesty The Queens 90th Birthday Tea Towel

This beautifully designed tea towel commemorates The Queen’s 90th in true royal fashion. Made in the UK from 100% cotton, this tea towel is finished in royal blue and features an inscription celebrating the UK’s longest reigning monarch.

QUEENS 90th TOWEL

and of course, I want to get a bag that represents……

F&M BAG

They even have a lunch box you can buy!!!!

So that’s just a few to add to my ever-growing list on what to buy. I think that when I DO get to London, I will probably need just about ten grand!!!!

Harrods and Selfridges here I come!!!! World-class shopping is EVERYTHING.

Harrods has Chanel Cosmetics such as the Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base. The velvety finish of this light cream-gel bronzer leaves your skin with a beautiful sun-bathed look. Wear it on its own, or for a hint of outdoors radiance, over or under your favourite CHANEL foundation.

Princess “Polyvore”


I recently came across a website called Polyvore. I have found a new love!!!

POLYVORE LOGO

You can create your own profile, and create your own collections and sets, so you can put together your own outfit choosing anything from tops, pants, dresses, accessories, shoes, bags, etc. I am currently a “Style Spotter” because I have created two sets so far. I need to create 23 more sets to become a “Style Setter”!!!

My second set that I created I called it an “All IT Pink Girly Outfit“.

I love what I have chosen, as everything that I have chosen is a soft pink colour, and it reminds me a bit of “Legally Blonde”! Except her colours may have been a bit too bright!

This is a collection of my favourite stylish pink stuff. Soft pink exemplifies femininity and I find that this is a very feminine collection. Have a look at all the things I have chosen below, and if you like, comment on what you think about it. I would love to hear what you think!

I hope you like my pink “Princess Polyvore” outfit collection plus a few other things to look at. It is hard to keep up to date with stock, and I will up date posts when I find out that things are out of stock. It can be quite hard to keep up to date because you have to manually click on links, and then realise, oh its not there! So, I will hopefully keep you updated with some new outfit ideas when I get inspired, and share with you my favourites.

My Mary Kay Blog


Mary-Kay-Logo-03

I am a Mary Kay fanatic, and I have been using the skincare and makeup for about several years. I was a consultant for a little while when I was 23-24, but never got around to hosting classes. I gained a lot of knowledge and absolutely loved the $5 book on how Mary Kay started her company. It was very inspirational. I still have the TimeWise collection for the face but don’t use it as often, as I keep to my daily ritual of Neutrogena cleanser and Sukin moisturiser, and it seems to be working for me! I like how Mary Kay likes to “THINK PINK“. I collected so much stuff from applying as a consultant, and LOVED all of the makeup. I used a lot of things as gifts as well and adored the packaging.

MARY KAY BOOK

With the products I used, I used a lot of pinks and browns as I always wanted to create a “natural day wear” look. I don’t know about you, but I love those two colours the MOST! Here is attached the CURRENT Catalogue of Mary Kay where you can explore what’s in at the moment with their makeup.

Amazing Arbonne Addiction


It’s the weekend!!!! And I can’t wait till 2 o’clock for a Makeup course with Arbonne held at the Merredin Recreational Centre. I have always loved my makeup, especially Mary Kay, and checking out new brands is fun! I have been using Arbonne skincare products especially the little samples I received from a consultant that I previously talked about in a recent blog.

20160130-121055.jpg

I recently received some beauty products. A MUSK Travel Pack that included a loofah, shampoo and conditioner, and a body wash and body lotion. It can be found on EBay.

20160130-114047.jpg

For a wide range of products to choose from, check out Adore Beauty. It has Aesop, L’Occitane, Skintitute and so much more!!!

20160130-114207.jpg

20160130-114250.jpg

It’s 2 o’clock and I arrived in a grey and white striped maxi dress with a coral blazer jacket. Makeup is displayed on tables along with catalogues and mirrors, eyeshadow palettes and MUCH more.

IMG_5243.jpg

At the start the makeup lady asked us all what our makeup routine was (I have been a bit lazy since moving to Merredin) and she explained that Arbonne is a Swiss company that started 35 years ago and is botanical based.

We started the makeup routine off with a primer, then applied liquid foundation…. The foundations were SPF15. After that we put on “light” creme concealer, like under the eyes to get rid of some bags…. and then a bronzer to highlight the cheeks and even the face!! I topped the look off with “Blossom” blush which left a soft, sweet natural look.

IMG_5244.jpg

SNP_2073.jpg

We then put a base eyeshadow on, named “Linen“, I then used “Indigo” eyeshadow at the end of the eye and above the eye as well, and blended it along the crease of the eye.

We then finished off with a “Setting Pretty Translucent Loose Powder Broad Spectrum SPF 15” and “Sheer Glow Highlighter” which you only put across the cheekbones.

IMG_5245.jpg

To complete the makeover look, I then put on “It’s a long story” mascara, and used the “Hibiscus” lipstick which is $28, for a glamorous effect.

IMG_5246.jpg

The Arbonne makeup is a lot of fun! and I enjoyed dabbing my face with these simple products. I bought, or should I say, ordered the “Ebony” eyeliner as I had run out of black eyeliner for everyday use. It was so nice to do classes as it is fun sharing with other women.

If you like Estee Lauder, I came across a CHEAP eyeshadow palette for only $18.95! Surprisingly, Ebay has quite a few cheap palettes that you will love!!! I hope you have enjoyed the makeover that I have shared with you as much as I have loved sharing it!!!
