My Spring Essentials

Now that the weather is getting warmer, it’s time to bust out the fake tan and razors again! These are some of my favourite products, just perfect for the Spring lifestyle: Spring Essentials 1. A Great Fake Tan Eco Tan Invisible Tan I’ve reviewed this one before, and I’m still loving it. It’s super easy to apply and hard to stuff up. It’ll only leave behind a gorgeous bronze tan with no nasty chemicals or orange colour in sight. The colour in the tan is derived from cacao (chocolate) so it does not contain green or orange tones. I love […]

100% Pure BB Cream Review

Tried & Tested: 100% Pure BB Cream

My skin has finally settled down following that onslaught of hormones so I can properly trial BB Creams again. I feel like they get a bit of a rough task when you road test them on acne. No product is ever going to do well when up against acne! Fearing my La Mav BB cream was almost empty, in true Abi style, I bought a replacement lest I be caught out with nothing – the newest product from the 100% Pure range, BB Cream. Nope, still haven’t finished the other one – now I’ve just got two BB creams on rotation. Ok, […]


The 5 Make-Up Brushes You Actually Need

Sure, getting your fingers working is quick and easy, but using brushes will help take your makeup application from amateur to professional. It’ll make application and blending so much easier and look way more flawless. But where do you start? 1. A foundation brush to really buff the product in and blend it together seamlessly. Here’s a tip I learned from watching a Kylie Jenner tutorial: don’t use the brush like a paint brush, i.e. brush strokes, instead use it to dab/buff out the foundation. Regardless of what you think of her, the girl knows makeup. I tried this method and […]

Beauty Essentials for all Ages: 30s

In your 30s, you may have started to notice signs of aging caused by circumstances that can take a toll on your skin, like stress or hormonal swings (due to age, pregnancy, or medications). It’s time to step up your regime from the basics. Take a cue from the 34 year old Beyonce, and get your skin care regime Flawless. 1. Irreplaceable sunscreen If you don’t already wear it every day, start. The sun causes 90% of wrinkles, and preventing them is easier than smoothing lines later on. Tip: Sunscreen becomes even more important following exfoliation as your skin is more […]

Maracuja Mascara

Beauty Review: 100% Pure Maracuja Oil Mascara

So Nourished Life was all sold out of my favourite 100% Pure Black Tea Mascara, so rather than cry about it (I had no mascara to waste on tears) I bought 100% Pure’s newest mascara, Maracuja Oil Mascara, and hoped for the best. Like most 100% Pure products, I was not disappointed! 100% Pure Maracuja Black Tea Mascara What I love about all 100% Pure products is that they combine really gorgeous ingredients that nourish your body/skin/hair at the same time as being highly effective. Check this out: Natural colours from black tea + powdered coffee beans and cacao! Nourishing […]


All Natural, Organic Eyeliner to suit Blue Eyes

Following up from my earlier post about coordinating eyeliners to your eye colour, I’ve compiled a guide of some of the best all natural, organic eyeliners to suit blue eyes. Since orange is the opposite color of blue, anything with orange in it will make blue eyes stand out more. Short of applying orange eyeliner, colours with orange tones is perfect for blue eyes. These are my favourite eyeliners for blue eyes. They all come from really reputable natural brands so you can trust their quality and know their ingredients are 100% safe. Copper, bronze and browns for blue eyes Using […]

100% Pure Black Tea Mascara

Review: Luscious lashes with 100% Pure Black Tea Mascara

Good mascaras are hard to find, even if you’re still using the standard, department store types. After being blessed with blonde lashes (I’m trying to stay positive), mascara was one of the first makeup products I introduced into my life. Even after making the switch to green beauty products, I was so scared to give up my standard mascaras because I really didn’t think I could find a natural equivalent that would work. I was skeptical at first to try 100 Percent Pure Black Tea Mascara but I was, surprisingly, not disappointed! 100% Pure has put a tonne of R&D into delivering what […]


Create your Perfect Pout with Organic Lipstick

Ready to make the switch to organic, natural makeup? Lipstick is a great place to start as you can easily find a comparable product – here are my reviews and colour guides to help you get started.  I’ve been experimenting with lip colour a bit of late. I’ve always been a little daunted by lipstick. I mean, I love eye makeup and am more than happy to experiment with heavy eye shadows, coloured eyeliners and different techniques. However when it comes to adding a splash of colour to my lips, well, it freaks me out. It’s all well and good […]
