January Favourites

January Favourites

The end of January sure has come around quickly, and now we have entered the second month of the year! How has this happened so fast? With January going by in a blink of an eye I feel as though I haven’t had the opportunity to collect so many favourites for the month, but I have noticed a few products that I have been loving over the month which I have been inseparable from.

Three Minute Makeup

For those days, my go-to east makeup look usually consists of the follow foolproof products. I have chosen these products for their versatility and ease of application. Continue reading

Hourglass Opaque Rogue Liquid Lipstick

Hourglass Rogue Opaque

 

(From top to bottom: Canvas, Rose, Ballet)

I took a gamble the other day at Mecca when I picked up the Hourglass Opaque Rogue Liquid Lipstick in Rose. This was my first liquid lipstick experience, and to be honest, I was a little skeptical – I didn’t see any difference between a liquid lipstick and a lipgloss, and to be honest I hadn’t had many good experiences with the latter. My entire lip product experience has been revolutionised as a result of this product. It changed my life so quickly that I promptly went back to the stores to pick up two more colours: Canvas and Ballet. So why the sudden change?  Continue reading

New Year’s Eve Make-up: Laid back gold

NYE Makeup

The New Year is right on our doorstep. If you, like me, opt for a (comparatively) quieter New Year’s Eve festivities, then this makeup look may be right up your alley. This is my go-to glam, yet understated look that shouts “I’m here for the party, but not overdoing it!” I especially love this look as it is still house party appropriate whilst still having the glitz and glam that we all love to put on for New Years. This year I will be applying this neutral, gold look that’s comfortable and not too out-there. The gold lining gives the look instant New Year’s Eve glitz, but is paired back by a neutral eye and lip.
