How are you?
Now, let's get straight into it, today I'm talking about my favourite makeup brushes.
I picked 5 from my little collection to share with you.
First brush is from Crown Brush, it is the C222 Round Contour brush. I love it because it is a multi-use brush for the eyes. I use it to add dimension in the crease, to blend out eyeshadow colours, to apply eyeshadow on the lash line and smoke out the colour. Sometimes I use it to highlight the brow bone and in the inner corner.
Definitely a brush I couldn't do without!
Secondly, a brush I bought from Zoeva, one of my favourite brush brands. It is the 231 Luxe Petit Crease, I use this every time I put my makeup on! I mostly use it to put eyeshadow in my crease. Love, love, love it.
The next brush is from Real Techniques, the Setting Brush. It is my newest brush purchase, I have been using it to set my concealer with a highlighting powder. I also use it to do a sharp contour because it works really well for contour; surprisingly. What did I do without this brush!?
The fourth brush is also from Real Techniques (I swear everybody has this brush), it's the Expert Face Brush. I used to use this to apply foundation but after purchasing the Real Techniques Sponge I have swapped to apply foundation with a sponge because it's quicker. So I've found a new use for this brush, applying cream blush. It is perfect from blush!
Okay, last but not least we have another Zoeva brush. It is the 127 Luxe Sheer Cheek brush. I have had this brush for a long time and it works well to apply bronzer. Sometimes I use it to contour as well but it's a bit too fluffy and thick for a harsh contour. However, this brush and bronzer go together like strawberries and chocolate. Yum... Did that make you hungry too?
Anyway, thank you so much for reading. That's all I have to say for now, have an amazing week :)
Welcome back to another blog post. How was everyone's weekend?
This post is about some things I have kept over the past few years that I have good memories connected to. I don't know why I am obsessed with collecting & keeping these things but I can't help it!
So why not share them?
My One Direction ticket. Obviously a very good memories. It was my first and only concert of theirs that I have attended, back in February. Seems like so long ago now! Click the picture to see my vlog of the concert on my YouTube channel, it was an amazing night. So glad I got to see them while Zayn was still in the band.
This is an appointment card for my first MAC makeup appointment. Doesn't sound that exciting but at the time it was, since I was an aspiring makeup artist and I was getting my makeup done for my grade 12 formal.
This is my Big Day Out ticket from 2014. Big Day Out is a one day festival held in a few different cities around Australia. I'm not sure if they do it anywhere overseas. It was my first festival and it was incredible! I saw Snoop Dogg, Major Lazer, Flume, The Lumineers, Tame Impala, Bliss N Eso, Mac Miller, Pez & Peking Duck. Can't wait till the next BDO!
This photo was taken in the Photo Booth of my grade 12 formal with Lois, @lo_bullen on Instagram ;) The only photo I really got in the Photo Booth at formal because I was busy dancing, which is unfortunate because we were photo bombed... (Thanks Tom, LOL) This was one of the best nights of my life.
This tickets look so old! Probably because they are, but I don't save my movie tickets as much anymore. Only if they are really good movies I guess. Who else collects movie tickets? Is it just me?
Avicii concert was amazing! It was around the same time as the Big Day Out festival, one of the best Summer's ever.
This was my little sister Tilly when she was younger, she is now 3 years old with blonde, long, curly hair. I can't believe she had black straight hair when she was a baby... So strange. But isn't she a cutie!
This is my Schoolies ID pass. If you don't live in Australia then you probably don't know what Schoolies is. It's basically a massive one week party to celebrate graduating school for good. It happens in a few cities around the country and a few surrounding countries if you want to travel. The main city is where I live, so I went & stayed in the Hilton for a week with 5 other girls and partied on the beach in Surfers Paradise. Take me back please!
This is my hotel room key from the first cruise I went on. This was quite a while ago (2011) and I can't believe I've hung onto it for this long. It was with P&O cruises and I went to New Caledonia - Lifou & Noumea and also Vanuatu. I had such a good time and the boat was amazing.
I went to the Cabaret De Paris show at Jupiters Hotel & Casino the day before my 16th birthday as a birthday present. It was pretty fun, I'd never been to anything like it.
This is a ticket to an AFL game my friend & I went to when we were bored one Saturday night. Neither of the teams are mine but we didn't really pay attention to the game, instead we made friends with the guys next to us and got a selfie on the big screen. Makes me want to go to another AFL game, too bad the season is almost over.
Well that's it! All of these little memories seem like they were all from a long time ago. But I am in the process of making new memories and collecting things like this. Maybe I'll do another post when I collect more, maybe next year.
Thanks for visiting my blog, let's discuss our good memories in the comments below :)
Hello, today I will be sharing my most used lipsticks. I use these constantly! Hope you enjoy and this gives you some ideas on what to pick up next time you're in a makeup store. I have a mix of drugstore and high end products, so continue reading!
First up; Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in the colour 402 Adrienne. This is the perfect natural shade. It is creamy and soft on the lips, a beautiful everyday lipstick.
Next is the Rimmel London Lasting Finish by Kate Moss in the colour 48. It is a dark nude shade, one of my absolute favourites right now. It says it's long lasting but I do have to re-apply during the day. However it is a very moisturising lipstick and looks good with almost any makeup look.
Another Rimmel London Lasting Finish lipstick I love is the Kate Moss number 30. It is a stunning berry colour. Super moisturising like the previous one and smells so good! Works well with the Rimmel London Lasting Finish lip pencil in 06 - Wine.
This Mac Lipstick was bought for me as a Christmas present last year by my friend (thanks Lois) & it has lasted me so long even though I wear it all the time. It's the perfect pink shade and stays on for ages! It is in the colour Love Lorn. I fall in love with it every time I wear it. A good dupe for it is the Sportsgirl Pout About It in Beauty Queen.
A Mac Lipstick, again, in the colour Dark Side. Similar to Rimmel London in number 30 although slightly more brown and less berry toned. This was the first dark colour I ever bought and I love how it looks. Perfect Winter shade.
The last Mac Lipstick I wear all the time is in the colour Lady Danger. This is a popular morange (red & orange) shade. It's the only matte lipstick I'm sharing today and is very long lasting. It is one of those colours that stains your lips and won't come off, which can sometimes be good and sometimes not. But I adore it. It is one of my newest Mac lipsticks.
The final lip product I'm sharing today is today is the Revlon Colour Burst Matte Balm, it's basically a jumbo lip pencil. Except it's really creamy and smooth. It's in the colour 225 Sultry. These are super easy to apply so definitely check these out! And it smells like peppermint!
Thanks for readying everyone, leave a comment about your most used lipsticks so I can check them out.

It's the 1st of September. Spring, you have been missed! Although Winter is one of my favourite seasons, I did miss the beach and wearing cute, colourful clothes.
My favourite things about Spring:
1. It's my birthday! (20th October)
2. Tanning by the pool with iced drinks
3. Some days can still be a little cold
4. Bring back the colours! I incorporate Spring colours to my everyday outfits, nail polish & makeup
5. Everyone seems to be in a better mood in Spring
Even though here in Australia it doesn't get too cold during Winter, we still get to cuddle up in bed and drink hot chocolates every night. Which is my favourite thing to do. However after three months of cold weather I am beyond excited to get back out in the sun and enjoy the beach. I hope that this Spring is the best Spring ever.
I am turning 18 very soon, which means I am going to be a legal adult. I can't believe it. I still feel like I should still be in high school or something. Being a legal adult in Australia means I will have to vote on elections (eh), be able to buy alcohol & enter clubs (yay), get married (absolutely not), get a tattoo (probably not) and move out of home (maybe).
Some of these things seem really scary.
But also very exciting.
I love Spring. So many things to look forward to!
