People ask me, "How long do you take to do your makeup every day?" and "What do you do day to day?" Well, here it is. Its not fancy, I'm not magic and there is no way (seriously) that I would be missing out on any extra sleep to do fancy makeup or wear false eye lashes daily. I applaud the makeup lovers out there that can do it, but I just love sleep way too much.
My three priorities in the morning are sleeping as long as possible, a cup of tea and looking alive.
The quicker I can get ready the more sleep I get and my day is off to a great start.

While you're enjoying the last few days of sunshine before the winter chill kicks in, its at about this time of year that your skin will start to change and your foundation just doesn't cut it anymore. It might be that your skin tone is too light for your summer shade or your foundation needs more moisture heading into the windy months ahead. This post should help you find a foundation to give your skin what it needs to help you look fab from AM to PM.
Lets continue the conversation and keep your makeup knowledge growing with this week's update. In the video I talk all about the eye brushes I use on a regular basis and how they work into your eye makeup routine.
I again showcase the Rae Morris Brushes because of their cruelty free status and ethical treatment of animals. Feel free to explore once you know what shape and hair type you are looking for in your brushes but please make sure you feel the bristles first! If you are rubbing them on sensitive areas like your eyes then you are going to want them to be soft and silky.
Ok Ladies, its time we de-code your makeup tools so you know what they do and how they work. There is nothing more exciting that new pretty makeup brushes. That is until you realise you have no idea in the world what you do with them!
This is all about how to work out what your eye shape is. There are so many different eye makeup tutorials out there but how do you know if it will suit you or how you can alter it to make it work for you.
I hope you're all as excited as I am to launch these tutorials for realistic makeup for real women. The series will be updated every week with info for a different part of makeup each time.
To kick things off we are getting to know our face shapes. This is the base for every makeup you'll do from here on out, all the myths thrown out the window and just practical information left over.
Everyone has those old wives tales and picked up habits from their mums, friends, and sisters. But are they always the right thing to do? Its time to stop and save your most loved makeup products from ruin.
Looking for me?
I have moved my little studio to my home in Oak Flats. While working from home will be an adjustment I'm so excited to make you feel welcome here.
Over the next 4-6 weeks a purpose built beauty space is being constructed so in the mean time we have a temporary space at the front of my home. I appreciate your patience while we make this transition, Its going to be perfect once its all done.

So you've heard about 'Lash Lifts' and you're wondering what on earth they are. No, they aren't an exercise to give you stronger eyelids and lashes, they are essentially an eyelash perm and often packaged with a tint to give you jet black, long curled up and 'lifted' lashes.
The before and after photos above speak for themselves but its also good to know how it works and why its a great option for those who love a good lash but aren't wanting eyelash extensions.
So how does it work?
A lash lift is first prepped by adhering a foam rod or rubber pad to your eyelid that your upper lashes are then bent over to create the curl you like. Then a perm solution and neutraliser is applied before its washed off, then the rod is removed and tint is brushed onto your upper and lower lashes. After a few more minutes the tint is removed and your lashes dried.
And thats it. Usually you are in and out within 40 minutes or less and then you don't need mascara or those scary eyelash curlers at all. Perfect for low maintenance summer beach beauty and those tear jerking movies we can't seem to stay away from.
