Hi lovely! I recently bought the new BYS Cosmetics Peach Palette – I was so excited to have a play as this palette has been ALL over insta lately…
I recently received a PR package from BYS Cosmetics and much to my delight it contained quite a lot of makeup. I couldn’t believe BYS had sent me so many products. I am so excited to have a play with my new makeup….I will be featuring these products in upcoming videos on my YouTube channel so make sure you’re subscribed otherwise you may miss seeing them!!
Below is photos and swatches of all the products that I received. Read More »
I LOVE this pink themed makeup look I created the other day while I was house sitting for a friend. Who else whips out their makeup bag when they’re bored and home alone? *hands up* anyone? or is it just me? haha. I mean, if you’re going to spend the entire day (and probably night) netflix-ing like a champ then you should be glammed up, right?
I haven’t done a pink look in oh so long so I grabbed my ABH modern renaissance palette and went to town. I hope you enjoy what I came up with – oh and I know it’s a little long but I was in a chatty mood! I promise you’ll have a little laugh when I get scared by a noise (hey! it’s scary being all alone in the countryside after you’ve just watched a horror movie set in the woods!)…. Read More »
Today I bring you a look that uses one of my most favourite shades ever – CRANBERRY. I ended up using a whole bunch of colours but that’s because I get excited and want to use all the colours I own haha.
I was so excited to film this tutorial as I haven’t done a cranberry look on my channel which is cray cray considering how much I adore this shade!
I also wanted to see if I could do a whole makeup look using my oval brushes that were sent to me from Simple Glam Girls. I have used the brushes for foundation but never eyeshadow – so you get to see how I go using them in this video. I get excited and want to use all the colours I own haha.
I hope you enjoy!!
While showering this week I tried out something new with coconut oil and in light of this I decided that I would do a post on what I use coconut oil for!
~ Shaving Cream ~
Yes you read that right, shaving cream!!! I had a “nooo, that surely won’t work!” reaction when I read about this on another blog so this week I decided to try it out and whaddaya know! It works really well! Normally the blade really irritates my skin and makes it feel super sensitive and itchy even while I’m shaving! With the coconut oil my blade glided smoothly, I didn’t feel it at all on my skin. No redness or itchiness when I got out of the shower – just super smooth lusious pins 😀
A couple tips:
- After every second or third “stroke/shave?” rinse the blade in the water otherwise it gets clogged up.
- Make sure to just spread a THIN layer of coconut oil on your skin so as to not clog the blade and to ensure that it actually cuts the hair.
~ Cooking ~
Nom nom nom. Coconut oil is the bomb for cooking with. I love the nutty flavor it infuses into my food.
My easy go-to meal is roast veggies. Chop up your veggies into small chunks then spread chunks of the oil around the tray along with Nuttelex Olive, although I have just discovered that they do a coconut version now, and a nice sprinkling of Murray River Pink Rock Salt then plonk in the oven for half hour or so. Soooo good! I’m getting so hungry just writing about this haha.
If you are wondering what Nuttelex is – it is a vegan alternaltive to butter (tastes better in my opinion too). I’ve been using it for years:
- Dairy & Lactose FREE
- Gluten FREE
- Nut Oil FREE
- FREE FROM Artificial Additives
- Soy FREE
- FREE FROM Animal Ingredients
- Cholesterol FREE
- Free From Genetically Modified Ingredients
~ Makeup Remover ~
Legit the best makeup remover EVER! It literally melts the makeup on your face. I rub a small amount between my fingers then gently rub onto my eye makeup and then the rest of my face. Keep massaging the oil in until all makeup is a black smudgy mess on your face then use a natural cleanser to remove the oil et voila makeup gone!
~ Body moisturiser ~
Towards the end of my shower I slather the oil from my legs up and on to my face then lightly rinse off et voila! Nice smooth, lovely smelling skin. I find that just doing that alone helps stop my skin from looking all dry and scaly. I still moisturise my face with a cream moisturiser as I have really dry cheeks and forehead.
~ Where to buy? ~
I buy mine from Coles in the health section – you can also buy from health stores.
What to look for:
- Virgin Coconut Oil
The brand I’m currently using is Planet Food. I also use the ECO brand which I got from Coles as well.
What do you use coconut oil for? Let me know in the comments below. I’m yet to try it in my hair or oil pulling…as anyone tried it? I would love to hear from you!
