Smart Beauty : Skincare

4-up on 9-11-2014 at 5.46 pm #8

Here’s the deal : you’re never too young to take care of your skin. Night creams aren’t just for our Mothers and Grandmothers.

If you get started on a great skincare regime now, it is more than likely to become a habit of yours that will keep you looking youthful for far longer than if you wait until the first signs of ageing appear to apply some miracle products on your face.

Today i’m going to share with you some skincare secrets that I have picked up from reading numerous beauty/skincare bibles over the years, and simply from my own trial and error.  Continue reading

Get Rid of Makeup In an Instant : Coconut Oil

One of the easiest methods of removing makeup, every single trace, is to use Coconut Oil. No matter how tough your mascara is, even my Too Faced Fibre Lash Extension Mascara stands no match against the almighty power of Coconut Oil. The benefit of using Coconut Oil as a Makeup Remover is it doesn’t dry out your skin, it has anti-bacterial properties, and is great for oily skin types as it ‘tells’ your skin to stop producing sebum (the stuff that clogs pores, causing breakouts).

I purchase my coconut oil from Woolworths usually, and often opt for the ‘Organic’ labelled jar. I highly recommend you try this method of makeup removal, and comment below what you thought of it!

If you would like me to do a full skin care routine including products I use + prices write something on the Sought-after Style Facebook Page here.

You’ll never have to mess with eyelash glue again!

Hello my lovelies!

So if you’re a gal like me, you probably find the world of false eyelashes a little daunting. Lash glue? Ugh, that stuff is just… no. Yet, I love the look of long full lashes! Why oh why! Luckily, Too Faced released a fibre mascara (along with many other brands, yet I trust this one the most) that has revolutionised the way us women can achieve batt-worthy lashes without having to mess around with yucky sticky glue.

Purrfit : Stuck in a Plateau and De-motivated

Hello my lovelies!

Lately i’ve been incredibly stressed out and have been putting my workout routine on the back burner. I just felt like I had lost all motivation ; I kept getting to a stage close to my goals and then my progress would just stop. With exam, work, home and all other kinds of stress in my life I just haven’t been able to get back on track – until today. Continue reading

How to : Wear Coloured Makeup

How to : Wear Coloured Makeup

Hello lovely ladies!

Now I thought today i’d share with you my top tip for wearing coloured makeup without it coming off as over-the-top or offensive (aka the classic faux-pas of blue eyeshadow and pink lipstick?!). The trick is to use an eyeshadow or lipstick in a contrasting colour to either your hair (as I do here) or the dominant colour in your outfit.

Because I now have orange hair (thank you bleach wash) I thought it’d stray away from my golden-brown and black sultry smokey eyes to something a bit more fun and creative! In wearing a purple lipstick, (I use poison berry by limecrime) or conjuring up a purple smokey eye using my stila ‘in the moment’ palette I successfully incorporate a pop of colour that lights up not only my face and draws attention to my bone structure but to my outfit of choice!

So in closing, you could choose to wear a dark blue/purple liner when wearing a yellow shirt or smacking on some pretty pink lipstick if you are donning a green scarf over an all-white ensemble! Just take a look at a colour wheel and locate the colour you are wearing (or your hair colour) on the chart and look directly opposite to that and this is the colour you should use to add that extra bit of ‘pop’ to your outfit.
