Revlon ColorStay Bronzer

I bought this bronzer to use for a makeup shoot and oh how I fell in love! It’s so nice to apply and is the perfect colour. I generally find that most bronzers are either too orange or far too dark. This one has the right gorgeous bronze colour and is very buildable- meaning it will suit from the fairest skin tones to the darkest!

It’s rather shimmery so it works great at giving you a gorgeous sunkissed glow. I recommend using it as a bronzer but not as a contouring powder due to the shimmer.

It’s part of Revlon’s ColorStay range and the colour really does stay all day!


Maybelline Color Tattoo Review

Finally Maybelline Color Tattoos are in New Zealand! These gorgeous cream shadows have been stirring up a fuss overseas for a few months and now we get to try them too! I bought mine at the makeup sale I blogged about here just before they came out in NZ. They’re available now at pharmacies nationwide!

I bought mine in the colour Bad to the Bronze which is a shimmery, dark bronze. I’ve been wearing it on its own as a quick and easy eye look and sometimes as a base underneath my eyeshadow. You could use it in the eye makeup routine I blogged about here.

Maybelline Color Tattoo is a really creamy shadow that lasts all day and looks gorgeous! It’s never creased or moved a bit on me. If you’re looking for a great eyeshadow base or simply a cream shadow you can wear alone then I recommend you check the Color Tattoos out!

OPI Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It

Oh how I love nail polish! I’m a little addicted. Some may even call it obsessed. Ever since I can remember I have always loved nail polish. I have an overflowing rack of gorgeous colours but I always want more. Everyone’s got that one obsession right?! Something they just love to collect?! Mine is nail polish.

After uni last week I popped into Smith & Caughey’s which was having a sale, and I just so happened to have a little money on a giftcard- just enough to pick up an OPI polish on sale. And that’s how this Miss Piggy joined my collection. Isn’t it a gorgeous glitter red? I’m wearing another red polish underneath as OPI’s Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It isn’t very opaque. I love it anyway. I girl can never have enough glitter in her life.

I love the little things in life, like glittery nail polish that really dress my day in pixie dust.

Please excuse my terrible painting skills. Unfortunately those skills did not come with my obsession!

MAC Face & Body

As I mentioned here I recently began my Makeup Artistry business. This meant it was time to stock up my kit. The first purchase I needed to make was foundation. I reasearched, googled and tried out a lot of foundations. I also reached out to my friends, family and fellow Makeup Artists about foundations they love! I was pretty sure I was going to go with a M.A.C foundation as I absolutely love the brand but they have so many choices! It became pretty clear that a common favourite was M.A.C Face & Body! Of course they have many other great foundations that suit different skin types and provide different coverage levels but M.A.C Face & Body is a top all-rounder. As makeup can be expensive and I am only just beginning my career I needed a good foundation as a base (no pun intended). M.A.C Face & Body provides good coverage with a flawless and natural finish. It also comes in a huge range of colours and is waterbased so it’s easy to mix to get the perfect colour for any client! I’ve been working with this product for a month or so now and I’m happy to say I absolutely love it. It looks great on everyone I’ve used it on and it’s so easy to work with. I recommend you give M.A.C Face & Body a try if you’re after a great foundation!
