Tried & Tested: W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Mascara

Years ago I was majorly hung up on a Maybelline lash defining mascara. During my love affair, it was discontinued and I would have to track it down on eBay until it finally ran out. The key element of this product was it’s crafty little plastic brush. You see, it wasn’t a big, full barrel brush like all the others. It was a tiny little comb with firm bristles. What made this brush so good was that it got right up into all those little tiny lashes, coating each individual one is colour while separating and defining.For the first time […]

5 Makeup Mistakes You’re Making (and how to fix them)

You might be thinking I’m being a little harsh on why these mistakes are all so horrendous, or even soapboxing. But believe me, I know all these mistakes because I am the number 1 culprit of committing all these for a number of years! Years of trial and error (oh so much error) has led me to figure out what you really can’t get away with. If my advice can help save you from a lifetime of embarrassing makeup then I’ve done my bit for humanity. 1. Mascara transferring to your eyelids Around 3pm you go to the loo and […]

These are my secrets & top products: Step 1: Create a Perfect Base Totally optional, but recommended. Starting from a tanned base will instantly make your […]


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 […]

Fake thicker lashes with eyeliner

Apply eyeliner for thick lashes, using all natural cosmetics. You all know how much I love thick full lashes right? I used to be obsessed with lash extensions (till they destroyed my natural lashes) so now I fake it with makeup. Want to know my secret for making your eyelashes look way thicker than they actually are? This is how I apply eyeliner to fake thicker, plumper lashes. This look works for day and night because it doesn’t look overly fake. It just enhances what nature has given you. Fake lashes can be a tad obvious for day time wear. And […]


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 […]

Tried & Tested: Ere Perez Sunflower Oil Mascara

I traditionally use black mascara’s, but have often read about why brown is a great choice on those with fairer skin or blonde hair.  Black mascara doesn’t suit everyone, so this is the answer. The Ere Perez Sunflower Oil Mascara comes in a gorgeous, velvety dark brown colour that accentuates length naturally and compliments fair skins and hair colour. Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics is one of my favourite cosmetics brands. Not only do they make great stuff, they’re also a great Australian company who pump their products full of natural oils, plant extracts and minerals so not only do they work […]


March: What I’m Loving Right Now

You know how sometimes you get hooked on a product, item of clothing or food and seem to just devour it for ages? This happens to me a fair bit. When I was a teen I was obsessed with Maggi 2 minute noodles. I would eat them as often as I could, and not much else. Oddly my mum thought I was anorexic (she clearly didn’t check the nutrition content) because I would be eating them once or twice a day. Fortunately I gave up that habit after a month or two, and now I’ve moved to far healthier obsessions. These […]

Lush Lashes with Lavera Organic Makeup

Reviewing Lavera Organic Intense-Volumizing Mascara and Soft Eyeliner: Volumising is my favourite verb when it comes to beauty products. For anyone with fine hair, like me, you’ll develop a certain talent for sniffing out the volumising product in any range. Some leave us horribly disappointed, others moderately impressed and some very few will blow our minds, or more accurately, our hair. Volume is not just limited to the hair on our heads either, sometimes amping up your lashes is also equally important. So today, I’m trialing two lush Lavera products: Intense-Volumizing Mascara and Soft Eyeliner.
