The shops are filled with decorations, my email inbox is flooded with Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, and my wish list is getting quite lengthy – Christmas is coming! I absolutely love Christmas, but in recent years I’ve gotten so excited about how it’s celebrated online. Being Australian and never experiencing a White Christmas as left me slightly bitter, so I always look forward to Vlogmas where I can follow around my favourite YouTubers while they pick out their trees and decorate their houses!
A couple weeks ago I picked up a few new bits and pieces from Too Faced and thought I’d finally review them! Too Faced is one of my favourite brands, if not my all time favourite. From their packaging to their concepts to the quality of what they release, to me, they just nail it every time. I was ecstatic when I saw they were finally releasing their own concealers and matte liquid lipsticks, so while I was buying those I also picked up one of their new liquid eyeliners!

The end of the year is fast approaching, and with that comes the holidays! Whether you’re gearing up for an overseas adventure or just a weekend away, I always think of these products and tips when I’m packing my travel makeup bag. I’m definitely an over packer when it comes to travelling, so tips and ticks like this help me organise and eliminate unnecessary baggage! I hope you enjoy this post and if you do, please give it a “like“!
YouTube’s Beauty Gurus have come a long way. From once just sitting in their rooms doing makeup tutorials and talking about their monthly favourites, to having millions of fans and being able to collaborate with iconic global makeup brands. It’s an understatement to say I’m incredibly proud of these people! So many creators now have collaborations and I’ve purchased quite a few in my time from my favourite YouTubers, so I thought I’d dedicate an entire post to reviewing their creations! I hope you enjoy this post and if you do, please give it a “like”!
It’s here! I’m finally reviewing the Violet Voss Holy Grail Eyeshadow palette! I ordered this baby off Beauty Bay back in August when it was in stock for a hot minute, and I’m so happy I was able to get my hands on it! Overall, I love this palette, just not for everyday use. It’s dramatic, deep, bold and full of warm toned, burgundy goodness, which is what I am 100% about, but I don’t find myself wanting to wear this to work or uni for exactly those reasons. I’ll soon be on holidays though and will have plenty of time and opportunities to experiment more with this palette! So, here are my thoughts on the palette and I hope you enjoy this review!
Two days ago I sat my final exam for the year and finished my first ever year of university! Coincidentally, today marks exactly one year since I graduated high school, so I thought today would be the perfect time to write about the things I learnt from my experience at university over the last year! This is half things I learnt, half advice I’d give to anyone starting this new chapter in the near future. I hope you enjoy it and find it helpful!
Since I’m writing my October Favourites a full week into November I’ve completely forgotten all the bad from the last month! Looking back now, all my fears and anxiety surrounding the assessment pieces I had due have been replaced with the amazing memories I made celebrating so many of my friend’s 18ths. I hope you love my October Favourites as much as I do and enjoy this post!
Let’s all collectively ignore the fact that my seasonal beauty picks is a little later than normal. While Summer is right around the corner, we still have a solid few weeks of Spring and with that I bring you my Spring Makeup Picks! To me, Spring makeup is all about that perfect transition from heavy Winter foundations and dark hues to more natural and glowing Summer shades. During this time of the year I’ve found myself leaning towards pastel pink shades, focused more on highlighting and have opted for a slightly warmer foundation. I’ve been wearing these products everyday since Spring sprung a few months back and I’ve been enjoying them so much, so I hope you enjoy my beauty picks for this season too!
Pardon my ultimate Dad joke, but it feels like Halloween was only yesterday (I’m sorry) yet here I am with a Christmas post! In exactly one week Mecca Maxima releases in store and online their 2016 Christmas collection, limited edition products brands have brought out exclusively for the holiday season only. Like every year, Too Faced is reigning supreme in the sheer quantity and quality of their holiday products. Mecca is launching a whooping nine Too Faced holiday products and here they are in all their glory! These products are extremely hyped up and they sell out super quickly, so it’s better to be prepared and figure out what you want before the actual release date. I also highly recommend searching YouTube quickly to see what people from other countries are saying about these products as they have been able to grab them before us Aussie beauty junkies! I hope you find this helpful in some way, whether you find a present idea for yourself or a very lucky someone else!
