Summer shimmer makeup tutorial

Hello my Fashionsistas,

The weather in Sydney has just been crazy lately; we had hot and sunny clear blue-sky days last week and now this week there have been really heavy thunderstorms! It’s been so cold so I’ve just been chilling at home playing with makeup.

You may had seen on my Instagram that I recently went on a little shopping spree at the Giorgio Armani Beauty Counter, I only went to the counter with the intention to buy one product and ended up leaving with four – story.of.my.life! So today I decided to film a tutorial of a very natural summer shimmer makeup look using my new new Giorgio Armani products...

We all put our hair through tough times, we dye it, bleach it, use a ton of styling products, and put stress on our hair with blow dryers, straighteners and curlers - all in the one day! Even the weather can put stress on our hair; from cold, dry winters to salty hair filled beach days in summer.

Makeup dupes: cheap makeup brands VS high end (half face tutorial)

Which side is high-end make up and which is drugstore makeup?

Hi Fashionistas,

So many of you have emailed me and left comments on my videos asking me to use some more cheap makeup brands in my beauty tutorials. I know that I tend to use quite expensive makeup in my videos and this is because makeup is SO expensive in Australia, so when I travel to the US I usually stock up on all my favourite makeup — as brands like MAC are half the price overseas!

Cheap makeup brands: drugstore beauty haul

Hi fashionsistas!

Recently I’ve received a few emails asking to see me use some Cheap Makeup Brands in my beauty tutorials as a lot of the products that I have been using in my videos are quite high end brands, like Chanel, Dior and MAC. 

And there is a reason as to why I use more high end products than Cheap Makeup Brands; in Australia brands like MAC are really expensive. To give you an idea, a MAC Lipglass here is $35 and in the US its $15 that’s more than double the price so I like to stock up on all my products when I visit the states...

DIY gel nails using Gelcolor by OPI

Hi Fashionsistas,

Like me, I’m sure you are a busy woman! And it can be hard trying to squeeze in time to get your nails done at a salon. Which is why I’m all for DIY gel nails! I can do them whenever and wherever I want - usually it’s really late at night because I always seem to leave it to the last minute. And what’s best is that unlike normal nail polish, you don’t have to worry about being helpless while it’s drying.

It doesn’t even take long to do; I’ve got it down to about...

Dark rings under eyes? Hide them like a pro!

A few weeks ago I sent out an email out to you all asking what your biggest beauty problem was. Dark rings under eyes was one of the most popular things you all struggle with and many of you have this problem on a daily basis. 

Having dark circles around my eyes isn’t something that is a huge problem for me, simple concealer is usually enough to cover up the natural darkness under my eyes but if I haven’t been keeping up my regular fitness routine, getting enough...
