Full Face Using Only Highlighters Challenge!

Hey guys!

I’m sure that you’ve seen this challenge everywhere because it’s really been done to death BUT it is also super fun and if you want to give it a go, don’t let over production stop you! This challenge started after Mariya on posted a video using only highlighters and it became a meme on Instagram! Since then, YouTubers and bloggers have been attempting to recreate it with their own highlighters! It’s super fun and it was a great way for me to use some highlighters that I haven’t used in a little bit! I hope that you enjoy!

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.

Review: TheBalm Mary-Lou Manizer

Hey guys!

Today, I thought that I’d talk a bit about my new love for this product. I only purchased it on Monday but I’ve been using it non-stop since and I honestly want to put it all over my body because I’m so obsessed with it hahaha. I know that I’m late on this hype train and I’m a little annoyed with myself for not purchasing it earlier but anyway, here’s the review!

I have quite a few highlighters now but most of them are cream or liquid highlighters and my preferred type is powder. Being combination/oily skin, powders really are my friend especially seeing as where I do get dry is not my cheek bones.

This champagne highlight is literally #goals. It is so glowy. When I look for a highlight, I look for something that has no chunky glitter in it. I think the chunky glitter highlighters just emphasise pores and just make you look like a bit of a glitter bomb. Don’t get me wrong though, I’m a super glitter fan but not on the daily. This highlight gives so much light and life to the face. I feel like I’m glowing so much that I could be pregnant (don’t worry, mum. I’m not pregnant).

12025410_10153507204022530_1873830934_n

The texture of the product is really smooth and buttery. You don’t need to really rub your finger or brush in the product to get a lot of pigment because it is already there. It is much more pigmented than the highlight I regularly use so I kinda need to learn to tone it down a bit but I am loving the glow that I get from this. I feel like the Lord can see my highlight up in heaven and Lorde can see it all the way over in New Zealand, its that pigmented.

You can kinda see the glow here. I’ve been trying the Kim Thai highlighting technique and I’ve been noticing my face looks a lot more highlighted and gorgeous. I definitely recommend watching how she does it if you want your highlight to be ‘on fleek’. You can also use it as an inner corner highlight, brow highlight, cupid’s bow highlight, etc. EVERYWHERE HIGHLIGHT. YOU GLOW GURL.

Birthday Celebrations 2015!

Hey guys!

As you know, my birthday was on Monday and I thought that I’d share with you what I did on my birthday! I originally had made plans with people to do things during the day but they fell through and I just took the day however it came and I ended up having a good day 🙂

pink-divider-no-background-md

I woke up at around 6am by my brother excitedly saying happy birthday to me. It was really cute and it made me feel very happy right at the start of my day. I watched a few youtube videos before I started getting ready to do things. With the new MAC Magic of the Night collection being released in stores, I thought I might try my chances at getting Oh, Darling! and get to the MAC store at Westfield Marion at around 9am.

Here is my MOTD and part of my outfit haha:

12200717_10153502758227530_99834242_n

I’m wearing MAC Evening Rendezvous for the first time!

When I was ready to leave, my step-dad asked if I’d like to go out for breakfast, which was super nice of him. We went to the Glenelg Pier Hotel for their buffet breakfast. They had a wide variety of food to choose from and it all looked pretty yummy. The only thing that they had missing was pancakes haha.

12200721_10153502760322530_795182320_n

We got the kid’s size buffet breakfast because we didn’t think we would eat very much and the lady told us what we could have and it sounded fine to us. By the time that we were seated and ready to go get food, we’d forgotten what we were limited to haha. I think my food was within what she had told us anyway.

12202175_10153502760412530_1840940492_n

There was a really gorgeous view of Glenelg beach from the restaurant and my step dad took a few pictures of me in front of our view but because it was so bright, I was just a silhouette so I thought I’d just show you this one that I took after breakfast.

After breakfast, I went on the tram into the city because I’d planned on doing a little bit of birthday shopping! I was still half looking for MAC Oh Darling! at this point but I didn’t have my hopes up too high. I wasn’t really set on getting it before anyway so it would have been a real bonus if I had bought it.

Whilst looking around at all of the makeup in the department stores, I got myself my free birthday Boost Juice. I bought a Banana Buzz smoothie because I’d never tried it before and it was pretty yummy!

12200560_10153503139922530_336287937_n

At David Jones, while looking for Oh Darling unsuccessfully, I picked up two products from theBalm that I’d been after, Mary-Lou Manizer and Cabana Boy blush. I was so excited to pick these two up because Mary-Lou is usually sold out at DJs but they’d just been restocked when I got there. I also went into Mecca Cosmetica in Myers and picked up Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Patina, which I had recently swatched and fell in love with. I’ve heard so many good things about all of these products and I cannot wait to try them all out.

While I was shopping, I received an email from Rouche Boutique saying that I’d won a competition and received $100 store credit, which was honestly so amazing. So a big big big thank you to Rouche Boutique! You guys know how much I love Rouche Boutique and it was the perfect present from one of my most favourite online stores. I am not sure what to get from them so if you have any suggestions, that’d be much appreciated. I’ll probably end up getting more of the Jeffree Star Velour Lipsticks haha.

12204817_10153503144852530_762868157_n

For my lunch, I was tossing up between going to Grill’d for a falafel burger or to Zen House for my favourite meal SFC but because I go to Zen House regularly, I decided on Grill’d. Honestly, I kinda wish that I’d just gone to Zen House but the sweet potato chips at Grill’d made up for the fairly average burger. Zen House is a vegetarian yum cha restaurant and if you’re in Adelaide and are looking for a good meal, I would definitely recommend Zen House, they have so many good meals to choose from.

After lunch, I met up with my boyfriend and we went to Little Tokyo to get some daifuku. I’d never tried daifuku before, it is like mochi filled with ice cream. It is really delicious. Frankie got the matcha flavoured daifuku.

Then we went to St. Louis. I had my heart set on getting one of those really crazy dessert milkshakes that have become really popular online but they were only doing it for a short amount of time so I missed out BUT I ended up just getting a regular milkshake from there and it was really good. St. Louis is really underrated and I would definitely recommend going there to get dessert. I would especially recommend the Eton Mess 🙂

For dinner, I met up with my brother and my mum and we went to have bibimbap at Jin’s Bibimbar on Goodwood Rd. I really love this place because you can pick anything you want to go into your bibimbap and you can make it taste exactly how you like it. I was very eager to eat my meal and forgot to take a picture of it before I’d mixed it. Rookie error.
The above picture is not very attractive but it does show you what I put in my bibimbap. I chose tofu with white rice, cucumber, capsicum, bean sprouts, broccoli and carrot.

After that, I spent the rest of the night working on uni work!

Birthday Beauty Wishlist!

Hey guys!

A week from today, it’ll be my 21st birthday! I am actually terrible at telling people what I would like for my birthday or Christmas. I always have a mental blank.  Even while I was writing this post, I had serious mental blanks and it was very frustrating haha. So, to help me decide what to spend money on and start getting excited about my birthday even though we are in the middle of uni exams, I decided I’d make a little post about everything that I’m lusting over at the moment!

theBalmMary-Lou Manizer

I’ve lusted after this product for so long now and there really is no reason for me not to pick this up. I keep going into David Jones and swatching it on my hand and crying a little bit over how pretty it looks. I guess part of it is that it is always out of stock because it is so popular but when it is in stock, I don’t run after it. So dumb. She will be mine, oh yes, she will be mine~

I smelt this perfume the other day while I was with my mum and I fell in love with it. It is nice and sweet and I think that it would be perfect for spring and summer!

Makeup GeekEyeshadows

It’s no secret that I love MUG shadows but I always get overwhelmed by all of the pretty colours and I can’t decide what I am after. Now that they’ve released new Duo Chrome and Matte eyeshadows, I know I have a lot of new shadows to pick up! I am just so in love with the colours and I think that all of these will fit in my z-palette. Fingers crossed!

LUSH – Christmas Items

lushpeepingsanta_zpsan5cudwgtumblr_ndytaksZkm1qcd8i3o1_40002911

As I’ve said before, I can’t get enough of the LUSH Christmas items. I just think that they are absolutely adorable and Yog Nog is a must have scent. Even thought I own the bath bomb and the soap, I will need more of it before the season is over! I also really want Peeking Santa and Cinders, which I purchased last year and loved! It is pretty safe to get me anything that is from the LUSH Christmas range, I’m sure I’ll love it!

Bonus items:

Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer and 3DS!

new-3ds-animal-crossing-happy-home-designer-europe

I have been very excited for this game since I first heard about it. I traded in my Animal Crossing New Leaf and I was pretty upset about it because I follow a lot of Animal Crossing accounts on instagram. So now is my time to shine as an interior decorator haha. This new ds is being released on the 5th of November, just after my birthday. So I’m pretty excited about it. Happy birthday from Nintendo!

DisneyTsum Tsums

Second-Harajuku-Tsum-Tsum-SetPeter-Pan-Tsum-Tsum-Collection-UKfigaro-small-front

There are tonnes of cute tsum tsums out at the moment and this new set of Harajuku themed Tsums has my heart. There are tonnes of tsums that I want! I really want Figaro from Pinocchio but he might have been limited to the the set sold at D23 this year.
