Audrey Hepburn Makeup Tutorial

photo 2 (2)

Hello darlingsย โ™ฅ

Audrey Hepburn is one of my biggest muses; she is the epitome of chic and gracefulness! I’ve never seen anyone else talk and move with such poise and class – I knew I should have taken those ballet classes when I was younger haha.

I love her carefree and classic style and of course her makeup! – so I thought it was high time that I filmed a tutorial for her signature makeup look ๐Ÿ™‚

I based this look more on her makeup throughout the 1950’s – think Funny Face or Roman Holiday; where she has those intense brows and a red/coral lipstick. I hope you like the tutorial!ย โ™ฅ

Review & Swatches: Lipsticks.

Hi!

Today I’m reviewing 11 lipsticks! I’ve been meaning to do a review on them since the beginning of the year! *slap on wrist for being lazy* ๐Ÿ˜›

There’s a mixture of brands in this review…a few well known brands such as MAC to less known organic brands such as Morgan Annie.

These are the colours I’m reviewing:


Elusyion: Blush.
What they say:
Elusyion Organic and Mineral Lipsticks Creating a completely natural and vegan lipstick is no small feat, but we have done it, with amazing results!. Creating one that gives incredible colour and performance is one of Elusyion’s greatest achievements! Formulated with organic olive, shea butter and jojoba oil to moisturize your lips, Elusyion lipsticks have a creamy texture, fantastic colours and great wearability, with absolutely zero chemicals or animal derivatives. Delivering the Perfect Pout!

My thoughts:
This is my least favourite of my lipsticks. It smells weirrrrd and doesn’t have much of a color pay off. It’s so light you can barely tell you’ve got anything on your lips. It is much too sheer for my liking.
I do like how smooth and moisturising it is though. I would definitely buy other colours as it is vegan and all natural…I just don’t like this colour Blush.

Price:
$36.95

Where to buy:
B Kind Organic Beauty Bar. You can buy this lipstick here.

Morgan Annie: Perfect Pink.
What they say:
Morgan Annie products ‘are100% Nano free, no synthetic chemicals, irritants, talc, clays or FD+C Dyes and NO Bismuth oxychloride.’

My thoughts:
My most used lipstick. I swear this lipstick suits EVERYONE! I’ve used it on most of brides. It is smooth and creamy but not lip gloss shiny. In fact it has more of a matte finish but without the dry feeling of a matte lipstick.
I pair this lippy with NYX lipgloss in Beige for a nice soft finish to my makeup look. Love it!
p.s. it is a little darker in real life…I took these photos yesterday evening so the light wasn’t so good, sorry!

Price:
$39.95

Where to buy:
Morgan Annie…you can buy from the website. Or look up a list of stockists and buy from a store in Perth.

MAC: Myth.
My thoughts:
Alright first up…after I bought these lipsticks *correction, after Jack bought these lipsticks for me from America* I discovered that MAC now tests on animals!!! Say what?! I am going to finish up the MAC products that I own but I don’t think I’ll be buying any more as I hate animal testing ๐Ÿ™
Animal testing aside…I’m not a huge fan of this colour. It really does make me look dead when I wear it haha. However I have put a pink gloss over the top to add some colour and that looks nice. I love the consistency…and the smell! MAC lipsticks smell delicious!!

Price:
$36.00

Where to buy:
MAC website
Myers/David Jones

Barry M Lip Paint: Vibrant Pink No. 62
What they say:
There is a shade to suit every occasion from soft, shimmering pastels to bold, vibrant colours. All Lip Paint’s have a soft, smooth texture that is packed full of natural moisturisers to help them glide on and stay comfortable to wear for hours.

My thoughts:
How awesomely bright is this colour, seriously Barbie Pink! I actually wore this work one day ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 
The first Barry M lipstick I bought was a couple years ago, it was a nude colour. I never used it! It was horrible, the texture was extremely dry making it nearly impossible to apply properly. So I was put off buying anymore lipsticks from Barry M. But after watching a few YouTube videos and reading good reviews on the lipsticks at the beginning of this year I decided to give Barry M a second chance. Perhaps I just got a dud lippy last time? Anyways, this one is lovely. It’s nice and creamy, and is REALLY pigmented! I really like it…and all for $7, yeww!

Price:
$7.00

Where to buy:
Barry M website.

Barry M Lip Paint: Green, No. LP149
What they say:
There is a shade to suit every occasion from soft, shimmering pastels to bold, vibrant colours. All Lip Paint’s have a soft, smooth texture that is packed full of natural moisturisers to help them glide on and stay comfortable to wear for hours.

My thoughts:
Again, smooth and creamy. However this colour isn’t as opaque as the vibrant pink, I had to apply a few layers to build up the opaqueness…but hey, it’s green, you’re not really going to be wearing this colour everyday so it doesn’t need to be the perfect lipstick! I’m yet to use this lippy in a look…maybe I’ll use it for a Christmas inspired look? haha ๐Ÿ˜›

Price:
$7.00

Where to buy:
Barry M website.

Barry M Lip Paint: Black, No. LP37
What they say:
There is a shade to suit every occasion from soft, shimmering pastels to bold, vibrant colours. All Lip Paint’s have a soft, smooth texture that is packed full of natural moisturisers to help them glide on and stay comfortable to wear for hours.

My thoughts:
I love this black lipstick. In the photo it looks like it has a bit of a red/purple? tinge to it..in real life it doesn’t. It is pure black! This is the same as Vibrant Pink, very smooth and pigmented. I haven’t really used it for a look yet but will do soon!

Price:
$7.00

Where to buy:
Barry Mย website.

Barry M Lip Paint: Royal Raspberry.
What they say:
There is a shade to suit every occasion from soft, shimmering pastels to bold, vibrant colours. All Lip Paint’s have a soft, smooth texture that is packed full of natural moisturisers to help them glide on and stay comfortable to wear for hours.

My thoughts:
This is probably my least favourite Barry M lipstick that I own. It is way to shiny, it feels more like a gloss and it tends to slide around your lips while applying. It also isn’t as pigmented as the black and vibrant pink, you can see in the picture that it looks quite shiny and a little patchy…not the biggest fan of this one, sorry.

Price:
$7.00

Where to buy:
Barry Mย website.

Nvey: No. 354
What they say:
ECO Lipstick delivers vibrant and natural colour compositions. An organic Castor Oil base combined with soothing safflower, beeswax and Vitamin E provides antioxidant and nourishing properties for soft, smooth lips. Fashionable colors available in three textures.

My thoughts:
This colour is really close to the Barry M Royal Raspberry ($7.00 vs $29.95…hmm haha). I do like this one better than the Barry M lipstick though. It has less shine, it’s a nice balance between gloss and matte. It has a lovely texture as well…and this colour looks really nice with green eyes I’ve noticed.

Price:
$29.95

Where to buy:
B Kind Organic Beauty Bar.

Morgan Annie: Passion Red.
What they say:
Morgan Annie products ‘are100% Nano free, no synthetic chemicals, irritants, talc, clays or FD+C Dyes and NO Bismuth oxychloride.’

My thoughts:
A matte red…I find that if you don’t use it for a while it gets really dry and hard to apply, and the texture is kind of rough. I don’t love this one as much as I do the Perfect Pink. Due to the texture and dryness I don’t really use this lipstick very much anymore.ย 

Price:
$39.95

Where to buy:
Morgan Annie…you can buy from theย website.ย Or look up a list of stockists and buy from a store in Perth.

MAC: Russian Red.
My thoughts:
A beautiful matte “old hollywood glamour” red. It isn’t as matte as the Viva Glam I red (see below), it has a little more shine to it and it has a great staying power.

Price:
$36.00

Where to buy:
MACย website
Myers/David Jones


MAC: Viva Glam I.
My thoughts:
I adore this lipstick! It applies so smoothly, is matte and the staying power for this lippy is awesome! I wear it all day at work, even eat and drink and I don’t even need to touch up once! ย And it smells AH-MAZING…but sadly it is a MAC product and as I said at the beginning, they now test on animals ๐Ÿ™ย 

Price:
$36.00

That’s the end of my review ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you own any of the lipsticks I’ve reviewed today?ย

Tutorial: Spring/Summer Inspired Makeup Look

(Make sure you watch the video in HD!!)
This week’s tutorial is super easy, colorful and fun ๐Ÿ™‚ I really hope you guys like it!!Last week Belinda and I headed down toย ย Yellagonga Regional Parkย for a fun spring inspired photo shoot. I had this vision of running through the tall grass looking all romantic and fun…of course reality hit when I remembered that I’m actually allergic to grass and so ended up being SUPER itchy! ๐Ÿ˜› haha. Oh well, it was worth it because I love the photos ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be posting the some very soon!!For my makeup I wanted something bright, but not too bright, fun and easy, as who wants to spend hours doing their makeup when a beautiful spring/summer day is beckoning?!I checked out the recent 2013 Spring/Summer fashion shows and when I saw the models’ makeup for the Christian Dior show I decided that was going to be my inspiration for this look.Here is the photo I came across:


My version is a little different. I skipped the black liner on the upper lash line, and instead of red lips I used a pretty pink lipstick. I also added some gold liner to my waterline and smudged a darker purple on my lower lash line.

And here is a sneak peek from the Spring Shoot!!!

Do you like my hair? It was so long and boofy I wasn’t sure what to do with it! So I put some product through it and then twisted bits of hair and pinned it back randomly. I was quite pleased with the result hehe. ๐Ÿ™‚


Today is another fabulous spring day…made even better by that fact that my boy is coming home this afternoon!! I’m so excited ๐Ÿ™‚ I woke up about 3 times last night ha ha.

So I shall sign off now as I have to head off to the airport soon!
