Since the first successful colour process was created by the Lumière brothers in 1907, everything has slowly come to colour; television, cars, monitors, phone screens, and now, every single new eyeshadow palette release. So, if it’s so popular, why are people so apprehensive to wear colourful eye makeup? In a world where Morphe sell 42 pan palettes of rainbow hues at suspiciously good prices, I don’t think we can afford to not be colourful.Continue reading “Using Eye Colour is All About Good Combos”
They’re dirty, they’re stubborn and they come in clusters… it’s blackheads! When they’re not busy ruining good makeup days, blackheads are collecting bacteria and gaining strength in numbers.
We’ve all been there: sat down ready to do our makeup and realising one very important thing is missing… a freshly-wet beauty blender. Commence the angry trudge to the sink to wet, squeeze and repeat.
If you flew across the world today and you’re a beauty guru or enthusiast, you’d probably pop into Sephora. With Kat Von D, Huda Beauty, Fenty Beauty, Cover FX, It Cosmetics, Zoeva, YSL, Hourglass, Sephora Collection and so much more (!!) all in the flesh, it’s a beauty emporium of glitz and goth, and everything in between. Sure, Debenhams is great and Selfridges’ choice of luxury beauty is a treat upon every trip into London, but UK beauty lovers can all agree: Sephora is where it’s at.
Creeping up on me is the last month of my 5 month quasi-backpacker holiday. Time really does fly when you’re having fun – everyone’s least favourite phenomenon.
The cost of travelling (besides the hefty fee you’ve probably paid a travel agent) is your skin’s health. Travelling exposes your skin to in-flight dryness, intense UV rays, increased alcohol and junk-food consumption and a blasè skin-care routine. Amidst the pleasure and excitement of backpacking or holidaying, we momentarily neglect the skin-care routines that we took months honing at home.
Cairns is more than a coastal city that gateways the Great Barrier Reef. It’s a tropical micro-city that fuses cosmopolitan living with a unique ecology. Cairns’ size gives it a laid-back town vibe that’s big on water adventures, with promotions of Coral Sea snorkelling, diving and cruising from open-air shops on every block.
I love a tanning product that doesn’t put my skin at risk – fake-tan, spray-tans, tan-water, an SPF-heavy day in the sun. Which is why UTan’s Tan Gummies have gained a place on my bathroom shelf.
When Beauty Bay launched their first own-brand eyeshadow palettes in September 2018, I thought to myself I’ll have to try those. Finally, over a year later, I got around to it. And I can confirm that Beauty Bay weren’t messing about. After trying their EYN Bright 9 Colour Palette, I am obsessed.
I used to cry when the hairdresser would cut my hair shorter than I wanted. Asking for ‘all my split ends off’ at 12 years old meant asking for most of my hair off.
But now, at the ripe age of 21, I explicitly asked my hairdresser to cut it all off. I wanted to trade in my long hair for a blunt bob. Half inspired by Olivia Pierson’s new bleached look, and half inspired by a fear of Australian humidity when I travel there in September, it felt the right time in my life to get The Chop.
