I am leaving on a jet plane #

It is almost 4am and I am SO excited, because I am leaving on a jet plane today!! :) I have been counting down to this holiday since booking my trip back in October. This Easter weekend (extra long one for me because am taking Thursday off – woop woop) I will be going to Sydney, Australia. 

Sydney is one of my FAVOURITE cities in the whole world.

I can’t wait to go shopping, hang out with my gorgeous friend Emma, party, eat & drink lots of yummy things and just generally have an AWESOME time.


Will share pictures and purchases (think there will be quite a few…..) when I return! I hope you all have a super duper Easter weekend. Mwah xoxo

Knight Divine Smokey Eye FOTD

This is one of my regular and favourite eye makeup looks. A soft grey smoking eye using MAC Knight Divine.
MAC Knight Divine is a veluxe pearl eye shadow that is described by MAC as a Black w/silver pearl. I personally feel it more of a blue-ish/grey black. This shade blends beautifully and is perfect for a soft or dramatic smokey eye.
♥Face:
Revlon PhotoReady Foundation – Shade 008*
MAC Studio Fix Powder NC20
Revlon New Complexion bronzing powder in Sun*
MAC Iridescent Powder – Belightful*
NYX Blush Powder in Angel
* Expect upcoming reviews on these products! :)
♥Eyes:
MAC Bare Study Paint pot (base)
MAC Naked Pigment (all over lid)
MAC Knight Divine (crease & outer V & lower lash line)
MAC Black Tied (Outer V)
MAC Brule (brow bone highlight)
MAC Frost Pigment (tear duct)
MAC Smolder eyeliner (waterline)
MAC Liquid Liner (upper lash line)
Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
♥Lips:
NYX Round lip-gloss in Whipped
PS: I think this look is similar but maybe a little softer/lighter version of the Kim Kardashian Smokey Eye Tutorial she has on her website. It’s a great tutorial to watch!

My very first….

Hi ladies,

I finally decided to do it; my very first….VIDEO TUTORIAL!

The look I created for my tutorial was a simple natural smokey eye using my Sleek Storm Palette.  This is the finished look:
Sleek+Tutorial My very first....
Eye My very first....

Before the start of the video I had already applied the following products:

MAC Studio Fix Fluid & Powder in NC20

NARS Orgasm Blush

MAC MSF Sunny by Nature Bronzer

Bobby Brown – Natural Brow shaper


So you would like to see how I created this look, please watch the tutorial below :)

I finished off the look with Australis (colour inject, mineral) lip-gloss in “Contemporary”. This lip-gloss was a recent drug store purchase (at only NZ$11!) and love it.  Very gorgeous pink beige nude crème shade, plus it has the most delicious lychee/peaches fragrance! I love it when a lip-gloss has a yummy taste :)


Hope you all liked the video tutorial? If yes; I will plan to do more!
