September Beauty Favourites

Friday, 26 September 2014

September has been a bit of a funny month: the weather in Sydney is all over the place and making it very difficult to figure out which season to be dressing for. Otherwise, it's been a nice mix of rediscovering old loves and finding new ones entirely.

IMATS Haul | 2014

Wednesday, 24 September 2014

Last Saturday I headed over to the Royal Hall of Industries for the International Makeup Artist Trade Show 2014. If you saw my wish list post last week then you know I was very excited to do some shopping and have a great time. This year I had a much more pleasant experience and I think that was entirely due to the fact that I scheduled watching some of the presentations into my day. I got to see Jos Brands present on Kryolan Professional Makeup and Eliza Campagna speak about Ben Nye. I also stuck around for the Battle of the Brushes Award Show later in the day. Breaking up my shopping with these really informative demonstrations added an extra dimension to the show that I didn't allow myself last year. If you're planning on going to IMATS in the future, I definitely recommend taking the time to sit down and learn some tricks or just watch some talented people at work!

Every year in September the International Makeup Artist Trade Show comes to Sydney and showers us with discounted cosmetics, makeup demonstrations, and competitions. This year, just like that, I'm very excited to be attending and have compiled a bit of a wishlist to hit while I'm there for the day.

It's the time of year again when seasons change: the sun comes out, the legs come out, and we're ready to mix up our beauty routines from that winter slump we got into. Here are my favourite products to make that in that in-between time transitioning from winter to spring that little bit easier.

Pastel Polishes for Spring

Wednesday, 10 September 2014

Spring is the perfect time to bring out the pretty pastel polishes to match the lace and floral numbers I've been waiting all winter to wear. Here are some of my favourite colours for this time of year when the sun starts peaking through the clouds and everything gets a little bit warmer.
