Priceline 40% off Cosmetics HAUL!

Hey guys!

On Wednesday last week, Zoe, Caitlan and I went on a bit of a Priceline Pub Crawl of sorts. As you saw last monday, I had a few things that I really wanted to pick up and I got most of the things that I wanted! I did also pick up a couple of other bits and bobs and so I wanted to talk about my day and share with you what I picked up and how much I managed to save!!

MOTD: Adele’s Hello

Hello… It’s me.

This song absolutely blew up on the internet and is still being sung constantly by pretty much everyone and their dog and I thought that it was about time that I honoured Adele’s gorgeous eyeliner and cheekbone contour by trying to recreate the look that she wore in the music video! I hope that you enjoy!

I used this Nikkie Tutorials tutorial to help me recreate this look. Because I was using this tutorial as a guide, I was also using a few elements that Nikkie was using from Adele’s SNL performance, like the glitter eyeliner.

 Slimming down the moon that is my face and clean eyeliner that suits hooded eyes are two things that I cherish. They’re also two things that Adele’s iconic makeup features. Michael Ashton is her regular makeup artist but I’m not sure if he was the makeup artist for this music video. If anyone knows who it was, I’d really appreciate it!

I don’t tend to go so heavy with my neutral eye makeup but I was loving how this turned out. With a nice set of falsies, this look would be perfect! I love the song and I adore the makeup. I also loved taking some photos of myself where I wasn’t being my regular, cutesy self.

My Priceline 40% Sale List!

Hey guys!

Priceline’s 40% off sale starts TODAY and will finish at 11:59pm on the 19th of November and so in preparation, I wanted to make a list of things that I knew I wanted to pick up and that way, you can see what I really want to buy and it might give you some ideas for what you too might like to pick up! I don’t tend to go too crazy with these sales because I am quite frugal at times but if I know I need something, I won’t hold back haha. So, without further ado, let’s get into this list!

pink-divider-no-background-md

316158_xlarge

Face of Australia Face Base Primer

I’ve only heard good things about this and it has a better rating than my current primer so I am definitely going to have to pick this one up and give it a go!

628115_xlarge

Revlon ColorStay Foundation

I love this stuff but I really hate that Revlon test on animals and they have a lot of issues with the CEO making racist comments, so I try to not support them when I can but this foundation, for me, is the best in Priceline. I never buy it full price because it is one of the most expensive ones in Priceline. I also like the Rimmel Lasting Finish foundation, which is less expensive and very good.

472688_xlarge

Rimmel Match Perfection Concealer

I love this concealer because it is lightweight, it doesn’t crease if you set it properly and it has good pigmentation. It has an annoying brush on the tip, which is really unhygienic but I just put the concealer on my finger because I know my fingers are always clean when I do my makeup but it is still annoying haha. It is probably my favourite concealer at Priceline.

521286_xlarge

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

I also love this concealer. I wouldn’t say I love it as much as I love the Rimmel one but it is very popular and for good reason. I just hope that they have my shade in stock!

524_xlarge

Austalis Fresh and Flawless Powder

I adore this powder. It is usually a bit yellow on me so sometimes I’ll opt for something else over it but now that we are coming up to the warmer months, it might suit me a little better as my body tans a little bit. This makes my face look smooth and airbrushed. I can’t get over the finish of it. And of course, Australis is cruelty-free, which is fantastic!

4100_xlarge_1

Australis Show Some Cheek Blush

This is a new product to the Australis line, I am really excited about these. I want to pick up a few of these colours and see how they compare to other blushes that I really love from Priceline!

1236_xlarge

Maybelline Hyper Sharp Wing Eyeliner

I LOVE this eyeliner. I’ve talked about it on my blog before and never have I ever had such an easy eyeliner experience. I love using this liner because it is nice and black and it can give you a really thin line if you have a steady hand! I would definitely recommend this if you are in the market for a pen eyeliner.

103652_xlarge

Australis Extender Lash Mascara

This is a clear mascara that I use to set my eyebrows. At the moment, the one I have is super funky so I won’t be using it anymore until I get myself a new one. This stuff makes your eyebrows set like cement, they won’t move. I definitely would recommend picking this up if you’re in the market for a cheaper brow setting mascara.

566373_xlarge

Essence Lipliner

These usually only retail for $2 so they’re already super afforable and they’re really good! I am missing two shades so I will be looking to pick those up. Hopefully they won’t be sold out when I get there haha. They’re very popular, so if you want to pick these up, get in early or try to get them online.

4071_xlarge

Australis Colour Inject Mineral Lipstick

I have a few of these already but I’d been meaning to pick up a few of the newer shades, including Mo Town!

I also want to pick up a new mascara, if you have any suggestions for a mascara from Priceline, let me know in the comments!

What are you planning on getting in the sale? Are you getting anything at all? Is your list too long to talk about? Hahaha.

MOTD: La Muerte – Book Of Life HALLOWEEN LOOK

Hey, guys!

I’ve always wanted to do a La Catrina (Sugar Skull) look but I’ve always been super hesitant because they can be extremely controversial and offensive because it is a cultural makeup look. It also happens to be the standard ‘white girl halloween makeup’ each year. So to half get involved and get my cosplay loving self into action, I decided to try to recreate one of my favourite characters, La Muerte, from the Book of Life. If you haven’t seen this movie yet, I’d highly recommend it. It is one of my favourites 🙂

pink-divider-no-background-md

Dia de los Muertos is very important to me and while I don’t celebrate it in Australia, I do recognise it and I think that remembering our loved ones who’ve passed is really important. The final day of Dia de los Muertos is also my birthday, so I feel a special connection with the holiday haha.
For a little background on the holiday itself, November 1st is typically spent remembering children who have passed (Dia de los Innocentes/Angelitos) and November 2nd (my birthday) is spent remembering adults who have passed (Dia de los Muertos). La Catrina is the Lady of Death and she looks after those who have passed on and by remembering and praying for those who’ve passed, we are helping them on their second journey through the afterlife.

the_book_of_life_03_bestmoviewalls_by_bestmoviewalls-d7yv60j

La Muerte from the Book of Life is La Catrina. In the movie, La Muerte rules the Land of the Remembered and her husband, Xibalba, rules the Land of the Forgotten. Xibalba hates the Land of the Forgotten so they make a bet concerning who the mortal Maria would marry out of either of her childhood best friends: Manolo or Joaquin. The winner would become the ruler of the Land of the Remembered.

101_2197

I adore La Muerte and Xibalba so much that I had to buy the Pop figures. La Muerte was actually super hard to find!

Anyway, enough of that. Here is the look that I created for La Muerte:

12092372_10153450540997530_1606591121_n

I wore a wig that suited the look the best. I didn’t have a nice black wig to wear and I thought that this purple wig still gave a similar effect. I tried something new with this look. I actually tried out the glue eyebrow method of blanking out eyebrows. I used regular stick glue and a spoolie to smooth down my brows and then I powdered them with a translucent powder. I did this twice and then covered them with an orange concealer to mute the blue tones from my brows. After that, I covered my face in a near white cream stick foundation and it almost completely blanked out my eyebrows (as can be seen in the photos below), so I’ll try to do it a couple more times next time I try this method. The foundation is actually very pigmented, it covered most of my spots, so it is definitely a matter of repeating the brow cover process.

Sorry that this post is a bit late, I had a test to study for and didn’t plan my time very well! Today I want to share my makeup look that I wore for Father’s Day and I also have a little story to go with it and maybe you guys have some ideas to help me out!

So, after dinner, we were all mucking around and one of my new false nails bent back too far and came un-stuck haha. No nail damage or anything. So I went to go reapply it and I spilt my nail glue (Alpha Cyanoacrylate) on to my Black Milk Tale As Old As Time dress. the dress now feels like a frisbee in the area that I spilt it and I’m not sure how to soften it. There’s not much that I can do because I can’t soak it, I can’t use acetone (nail polish remover) or anything you’d normally do to remove the glue. If you can think of anything that might save the dress, I’d appreciate it!

I hope that you enjoyed your Father’s Day celebrating your fathers or father figures. Here are some pictures of me and my father figures

My Secret Weapon to Perfect Liquid Liner!

Hey guys!

The other week, I picked up a duo from Kmart that had the Maybelline Hyper Sharp Wing liner and Lash Sensational mascara in it. I’ve been wanting to try both of these products and for only $25~ I thought I might as well pick it up. I believe that at the moment you can purchase it for half price at Chemist Warehouse! I’ve been looking for a new mascara and eyeliner and I was hoping and praying that these may be worth the mullah!

pink-divider-no-background-md

Little did I know, I’d very quickly fall in love with the liner and now I don’t know what I’d do without it.

IMG_3027

The Hyper Sharp Wing liner has two sides, one fat and one thin so that you can create the perfect wing. The idea is that you use the thin side to outline your liner and wing and then fill it in with the fat side. I don’t really use it this way but if you want to, definitely try it out. I like to use the thin side of the liner for my inner corner to middle lid section and then use the fatter side from middle section to outer corner. For the wing, I just use the thin section so that I don’t make any mistakes with it.

pink-divider-no-background-md

I love this liner because it is so easy to use. I’ve been on the hunt for a pen liner that I liked using because with the brush liquid liners, I’d always have eyeliner on the top of my lashes and it would make them look clumpy. I also wanted a pen liner because you get more control, I’ve never had uneven wings with this liner.

This liner hasn’t flaked on me at all and it doesn’t smudge. It is also easily removed with a face wipe so you won’t need to be tugging on your fragile eyelids with this one. I also really like the packaging. I love the metallic pink lid!

As for the mascara, I am enjoying it so far, I haven’t used it to its full potential yet so I might make a separate post about it at some stage!

I hope that you are having a lovely day!
