photo 1 (10)

Hey hunni bunnies ♥

How are we all today? ☺ Who is happy that Spring has begun?…well let’s be honest we don’t actually get the Spring season in Australia, it just goes Winter – Summer! Ugh, I am not a fan of Summer…too hot for moi haha. Ok ok so there are a couple things I like about Summer – the warm nights and I can wear lots of pretty and colorful makeup!…although I do that whatever the season haha it just feels more right in Summer ☺

Today’s tutorial has a Spring feel to it whilst keeping the drama of winter with a more dramatic eyeliner. I was actually inspired by a fellow Arbonne consultant who also does makeup tutorials (her YouTube account is Sammis Secrets). She did a purple smoky eye which I loved and so I’ve recreated it but added my own twist to it.

I wanted to do a one brand makeup tutorial. I chose Arbonne because I own most of the Arbonne Cosmetic range and it’s a vegan, natural, plant based range which I love. Plus I wanted to put the shadows to the test to see what combos I come up with – so expect a few more Arbonne only tutorials to come ☺

I hope you like this tutorial! ♥

Audrey Hepburn Makeup Tutorial

photo 2 (2)

Hello darlings ♥

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 🙂

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! ♥

Pretty Little Liars Makeup Tutorial: Aria Montgomery

photo 2 (7)

Is anyone else as obsessed with this show as I am? Ugh! I have become disgustingly addicted to it haha. I just finished season 3 today! So many more hours to go :O

Aria’s makeup and fashion is one of my most fave things about PLL (yes I am one of those hard core fans ahaha 😉 ) Her fashion is so daring and sometimes odd, it is totally up my alley. I’ve been told by my bestie that sometimes my clothing choices make her think “what the heck, I hate that” but I always pull it off 😛 I feel Aria is the same sometimes, bizarre combos that just work on her. So who better to kick off my PLL makeup series than Aria 😀

I hope you enjoy the tutorial! If you do, please let me know by commenting!

A few weeks ago I teamed up with Loverly, a complete wedding organisation website, to create a makeup look based on a dress I chose from their site! What is Loverly? It’s an awesome wedding organisation website but not only that, you can also buy everything wedding related on there too!! You can buy, save ideas, and plan your wedding on there 🙂

This is the dress I chose: http://lover.ly/shop/dresses/oscar-de-la-renta/look-9/images/349551/

Vintage how I love thee. I wish that time travel was a real thing haha. There are some gorgeous dresses for sale on Loverly, click here to check them out, I had a squiz and I fell in love with like all of them haha. I am going to have the hardest time picking out a dress if I ever get married 😛

The makeup:

I immediately knew that a vintage makeup look was required to accompany this dress. I decided to go quite light with the eyeshadow and make it all about the statement winged liner and false lashes. This dress is so lovely I didn’t want the makeup to overpower it so I decided to not go with my initial thoughts of incorporating a red lip and instead went with a soft pink lip.

I kept the cheeks soft and pretty with just a little contour and pretty pink blush on the apples of my cheeks.

As I haven’t filmed a tutorial for bridal makeup yet I decided that this was the perfect time to do it. See link to the tutorial at the bottom of the post 🙂 *link to video coming in the next couple days!*
