I love watching the Oscars not only to find out who won what award, but also for the flawless makeup and gorgeous gowns donned by celebrities.
For the most part, celebrities like Kate Hudson, Penelope Cruz and Sandra Bullock kept the focus on their eyes with a subtle smokey look, false lashes and a nude lip, while Emma Watson, Kerry Washington and Amy Adams opted for a brighter lip colour (in shades of red, plum and orange) and kept the rest of the face minimal.
Here are my favourite beauty looks:
I love receiving packages in the mail, especially if it’s something I ordered a few weeks ago and forgot about! Today, I came home to a small ASOS package, which brightened up my day.
Here’s what I got:
The newest offering from Hourglass is its Ambient Lighting Blush, which retails for $50 at Mecca Cosmetica and comes in 6 shades. If you’re familiar with the Ambient Lighting Powders from Hourglass, which were a huge hit last year, you’ll like these blushes which are pretty much each of the ambient powders mixed in with blush pigment.
I purchased the shade Dim Infusion. It is much smaller than the ambient powders and come packaged in a stylish copper compact with a mirror while the Ambient Powders come in a darker greyed bronze compact.
Dim Infusion is described as a “subdued coral blush fused with Dim Light to add warmth”, and I already have Dim Light on its own so I knew I would like Dim Infusion.
Hey everyone! Today I’m going to share with you what’s in my shower and the products I use daily to get myself squeaky clean. When it comes to body and hair care, I’m by no means a high maintenance gal so don’t expect too many high end products! When it comes to skincare and makeup, however, I’m a very different person…
It’s been a long time since I last posted, but here I am again with a fresh new haul from Sephora, courtesy of HopShopGo, a US parcel forwarding service. Sephora, when are you going to listen to your international customers and start offering shipping to Australia??
Anyway, I just wanted to post a quick haul and first impressions of 3 things that I purchased (note: all prices in USD):
- Tarte Eye-ssentials Amazonian Clay Discovery Kit, $33
- Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, $52
- Becca Shimmering Skin Pressed Perfector in Moonstone, $38
Here’s my roundup of the makeup and beauty products I personally thought were the best this year, as well as the new kids on the block that I thought were high performing products. How often I use the product as well as the longevity and texture of the product qualifies it for my Best of 2013 list. By the way, I use the word ‘newcomer’ loosely as these may be products that have been around for years but I’ve just discovered or acquired.
So, here we go!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a lovely time ushering in the New Year, I sure did with fireworks and champagne!
