Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Review

Hey everyone, today I’m back with a review on the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme lip gloss.

I picked this bad boy up after watching Tymetheinfamous on Youtube rave about the original Too Faced lip injection and figured if I was going to get it, then I may as well get the extreme version because who doesn’t want big pouty lips right?

You can see and feel this lip gloss working as soon as you put it on, it tingles and does feel a little bit uncomfortable but nothing that’s too extreme.

I like to use a really light coat on my lips, mostly because I don’t want it to ever run out, but also because I find you don’t need to slather it on to get the results you want.

In the above I have probably waited 5 minutes if that before I took the after photo, so you can see that you get results pretty quickly.

I like to use this after I put on my moisturiser of a morning, let it do its thing and then wipe it off to apply my lipstick. But you could always wear it by itself as a clear gloss.

I picked mine up from MECCA MAXIMA for $38 AUD, you can purchase yours here

I love this product and can see myself repurchasing it over and over again since it’s become part of my daily routine.

Have you tried this product, do you love it as much as I do? let me know in the comments

Styling A Tube Skirt

Hey everyone, today I’m back with how I style a tube skirt for Summer.

Today i’ve styled two outfits that I think could take you from lunch with friends, to dinner and drinks easily. I’ve stayed within a very clean monochromatic palette which I think is perfect, as a tube skirt can be worn time and time again and can quickly become a staple piece.

Here I’ve paired both skirts with a cami style top which I think pairs perfectly, but could of course be paired however you want. A simple black crop top or a turtle neck tucked in would look lovely for the colder months.

I am absolutely loving these looks for any occasion, they’re effortlessly chic and feminine and the best part is that you could achieve this look without breaking the bank, Here are some on asos.com.au that are lovely and affordable.

Would you wear these outfits? let me know in the comments.

Styling A Maxi Skirt

Hi everyone, today I’m back with a post on how I would style a maxi skirt for summer.

I am seriously loving maxi skirts for the Summer months and think they’re perfect for both day and night. Here I’ve styled three options, two that are more casual, lunch out with friends and one that is more date night appropriate.

You can even wear your maxi skirt for a day at the beach or even to the park they are such versatile pieces, finding the right maxi skirt can really make for such a pretty outfit without having to put too much thought into it.

Here I’ve styled all the looks with heels but I also think that depending on the style of maxi skirt you can get away wearing your skirt with a pair of strappy flat sandals and chunky jewelry and looks just as nice, sometimes I even dress mine up for work.

I really think that the maxi skirt is a wardrobe staple for Summer.

How do you style your maxi skirts, would you wear these outfits? let me know in the comments.

Australis AC On Tour Contour Kit Review

Hey everyone, today I’m back with a review on the highly sought after Australis Contour Kit.

Photo 5-12-2014 4 27 26 pm

In this kit you get six shades a lighter shade, a yellow toned shade a champagne highlighter and 3 darker sculpting shades all in rather large pans.

Photo 5-12-2014 4 28 37 pm

Let me start out by saying that these powders are so buttery and blend out like a dream, considering the price point for this product I wasn’t expecting it to be as great as it is!

Photo 5-12-2014 4 23 30 pm

To contour my face I use a Real Techniques contour brush and a large powder brush.

Using the large powder brush I dust the yellow shade under my eyes to brighten the area and then use the contour brush, the medium and darkest shades in the hollows of my cheeks, temple, forehead and the left over is dusted on my jawline.

The effect is a beautiful natural shadow that makes your face look more defined and put together. I find that I am able to get a great effect using this palette with and without foundation underneath.

For the hotter days I finish my look off with a dusting of bronzer and a bright blush over my cheeks to really amp it up.

This palette is sold in Priceline for $16.95 AUD and they sell like hotcakes so make sure you ring your local store to make sure they have them or order online.

Find it here

Have you tried out this palette, do you like it? let me know in the comments.

Who won the skeleton beauty contest?

No Body…

Hey everyone, today I’m back with a quick halloween look!

It is coming up to that spooky time of the year for all my American readers, and I have put together a super easy skull look (an oldy but a goody)

Skull 1

My Photo inspiration

skull_makeup_by_lekstedt-d67k5jf

What I used

Good quality water based face paint (I got mine from Spotlight)

Synthetic face paint brushes

Generic eyeshadow palette

I am a little bit of a cheater though, because I only used a little bit of makeup and the rest was face paint.

I started out by wiping my face and applying some moisturiser and let it sink in, I then used the glue stick method to flatten my brows so they could be covered with the face paint. I used a large synthetic brush to start painting my face white.

Now you could stop there because that is seriously scary

Please also be so careful around your eyes when using this face paint I cannot stress this enough. I was just slapping it all on my face and near my eyes and then I had issues, my eyes started watering and it started breaking up the paint on my cheek so then I was getting more paint and was trying to pat it on top of where the paint was breaking up. I finally got it all to sit okay. I followed this by getting a large shader brush and patting white eyeshadow on the more problem areas to try and conceal.

Then very carefully using a thinner smaller synthetic face paint brush I took the black face paint and mapped out my eyes, and then painted that all black. I got this in my eye AGAIN (I seriously do not learn) and so I got a black tear streak down my face. I thought it was all over and was about to pack it in but I just kept painting my eye and let the streak dry. once it was I got another small clean brush and then packed on the white face paint over the black.

I then used the sponge that came with my paint kit to dab more white over the area to make sure it was all blended.

Again taking a very thin brush I started mapping out the teeth, nose and hollows of the cheek. once the teeth were all mapped out and the hollows filled in I then mixed amy paints together to make a light grey colour and started adding shadows where I thought I needed it. also marking out my temples and darkening my mouth.

Finish the outfit off with a black robe and some black fabric over your head and you too can literally look like death.

I had so much fun putting this look together, and plan to be more organised next year so I can do a few more!

Behind Blue Eyes

Hey everyone, today I’m back with a really pretty summer look on my beautiful friend Amber.

Amber 2

Products used

NYX eyeshadow primer

NYX Dream catcher palette

ChiChi Cosmetics bronzes palette

Elf cool palette

Individual flare lashes

Elf dark brown brow kit

Maybelline The falsies big eyes mascara

Generic concealer palette

MAC Match master foundation

Mac Mineralize skin finish powder

W7 Bronzer

LA girl glazed lip paints in blushing

I started out by cleansing Ambers skin with a makeup wipe and then patting the eyeshadow primer all over her eyelid and lower lash line, I then used the matte beige shade from the NYX dream catcher palette all over the lid, followed by the copper shade from the ChiChi bronzes palette over the middle of the eyelid and blending it in circular motions outwards and upwards. I then took the light gold shade and blended that into the copper shade on the outer and inner corners of Ambers eyes. I then tapped a dome brush in the matte brown shade from the ChiChi palette and blended that in a circular motion to blend the lighter metallic toned shadows together.

I then took the navy blue shade from the Elf palette and placed that on Ambers lower lash line a little over half way, and then blended it down. As I didn’t want to risk the colour closing up Ambers eye by taking it all the way to the inner corner. I then placed a few individual false lashes to the outer third of her lash line to thicken her natural lashes and to elongate her eye.

I then used the green toned concealer from my palette and dabbed that on any redness. I then blended the foundation where needed and powdered as usual, I then used some bronzer to warm up the face, filled in her brows and applied mascara.

I finished off the look with the LA girl lip colour in blushing.

Modern Pin up look

Hey everyone, today I’m back with a modern pin up inspired look.

Today I found a spare hour to sit down and put together this look, I knew I wanted to do something clean and fun and I think this modern pin up inspired look is really pretty.

Products used

Eyes

Nyx Eyeshadow primer

Chi Chi bronzes palette

Maybeline Gel liner

Napoleon Glitter liner

120 Ardell lashes

Skin

L’oreal True Match Foundation

Generic Concealer palette

Elf high definition powder

Rimmel Stay Matte powder

W7 Bronzer

Generic red blush

Mac Mineralize skin finish in Lightscapade 

Brows

Nyx brow pencil in brown

Maybelline color tattoo in Taugh as taupe

Lips

Essence red lip liner

Nyx round lipstick in true red

I started out by patting the nyx eyeshshadow primer on my lid as always, followed by a beige eyeshadow from my Models prefer palette. Using a dense flat eyeshadow brush I packed the product all over my eyelid, followed by the lightest champagne shade from my Chi Chi bronzes palette on my brow bone. Once I’d blended that together so it was seamless I placed a very light brown shade through my crease. You want this to look like your eyelid, but better. The main focus is the liner and lips.

I then used the gel black liner to make a cat eye liner followed then by the silver Napoleon glitter liner, following the black liner. I then put on my lashes and perfected my skin.

Using my L’oreal true match as usual I buffed that into my skin, and then contoured and highlighted using the dark brown and pale yellow shade in my generic concealer palette, using a damp beauty blender to blend that all together. I then filled in my brows as usual while my foundation sunk in.

I set my under eye concealer using the elf HD powder and the rest of my face with Rimmel stay matte powder. I then bronzed my face and added a light flush to my cheeks with a small amount of red/pink blush.

I finished off this pin up inspired look with of course cherry red lips, using the lip liner first to make sure the lipstick doesn’t feather.

A black cat eye and red lip is such a timeless look, and I think the added glitter makes it modern and fun.
