LIP PRODUCT ADDICT TAG

Now it's no secret that I am completely obsessed with lip products whether it be a lip balm, lipgloss, lipstick or anything in between. So when the lip product addict tag came to my attention and I was tagged by a few girls to do this I absolutely jumped at the chance. An opportunity to talk about lip products endlessly? Yes please! I would even go as far to say that this is my forte, so let's get into it.

BARE FACED CELEBRITIES WITHOUT MAKEUP


In my 40 Beauty Questions TAG I was asked which celebrities makeup I admired most and I touched on a few of my favourites but concluded with the fact that they all have professional makeup artists, stylists and hairdressers helping them look the way that they do. So much time goes into getting them ready yet we overlook that fact and act as if that is how they look on a daily basis exercising or buying groceries. We are constantly posting makeup inspiration pictures of the celebrities so it's always good to step back sometimes and acknowledge the power of some well placed makeup.

I thought that this post about celebrities without makeup was mainly important to see that they are human too and don't constantly look how we see them on the red carpet so to not compare your everyday self to their made up selves. Also let's face it, all of the images we see have been produced so sometimes these before photos are so raw that the photo doctoring phenomenon finally hits home and I want all of you girls to embrace that.

Kicking off we had Mila Kunis above but keep reading to see Kim Kardashian, Katherine Heigl, Drew Barrymore, Sofia Vegara, Amanda Sayfried, Beyoncé, Gwenyth Paltrow and Kate Moss all before and after makeup.

BEGINNING BOUTIQUE BLOGGER BREAKFAST

Yesterday morning I rolled myself out of bed and braced the early morning cold to attend a beautiful breakfast put on by the gorgeous girls over at Beginning Boutique. So you're all probably familiar with Beginning Boutique but if not then you must check them out. They are a Brisbane based online clothing store stocking some of the most up-to-date trends for each season.

We tucked into a delicious breakfast at The Gunshop Café located at Brisbane's West End. I somehow found myself tragically lost for about half an hour trying to find the place, my sense of direction seems to fly at the window whenever I'm driving. So many incredible, creative and inspiring bloggers, vloggers and magazine contributors came together to discuss everything fashion.

BENEFIT POREFESSIONAL {REVIEW}


When I put up my 40 Beauty Questions TAG and in it mentioned the primer I currently use is Benefit POREfessional, what followed was a stream of questions asking my opinion on this product. So I figured that I better get around to putting up my review on this amazing product so that it can help you all decide if it's a primer worth checking out for yourselves.

BENEFIT HOOLA BRONZER {REVIEW AND SWATCHES}

Not long ago I reviewed Benefit Hervana Blush (you can read the review here) and so I thought that it was about time I shared with you all my thoughts on their iconic Hoola bronzer. I remember when I first started watching beauty videos on YouTube back in 2009 and every single girl seemed to have this bronzer. At this stage I wasn't too sure what the purpose of a bronzer even was and contouring was not a word in my makeup vocabulary but what I did know was that I had to get my hands on this product. Years down the track and I'm still using it to this day, it isn't my absolute all time favourite bronzer but it definitely is an essential for every collection.

PALMER'S FACIAL CLEANSING WIPES {REVIEW}

I have been loving the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula range and one of the products in particular are these incredible makeup wipes. I feel the need to shine a spotlight on this amazing makeup removing alternative because it's affordable, convenient and provides quality results.

NARS NICO BLUSH {REVIEW}

Don't ask me how but someway I managed to avoid NARS until now. It was probably mixture of accessibility and price that kept me away from this infamous brand so long but wait no more...here's a review on my first NARS product. I of course went with a blush since they are so highly raved about and since so many colours I originally had at the top of my list were sold out I went with Nico, an interesting colour that I thought would be fun to experiment with.
