Happy Valentine’s Day my pretties. Even though it was yesterday but if you’re in a different county it maybe today! But my darling partner came home on his work lunch break holding a beautiful red rose and a box of chocolates for me. He’s so sweet, I’ve eaten the chocolate already which is probably no surprise to anyone but I had one of those moments where I didn’t realise the box was empty and I reached in for more and my body was overcome with a feeling of sadness/regret/embarrassment/shock. Do you know the feeling?
Regardless I created a Valentine’s Day inspired makeup look! I’ll list down what products I used down below and link the site where I purchased them for you all! Let me know what you think in the comments! 💋
Hey friends, how are we all?? Sorry I only posted once last week! School holidays are coming to an end faster then I thought so I’ve been spending time with my little one before she starts her first year at school! So stressful! Life goes so fast and my eyes are welting up just typing this! I will most definitely be a mess when I drop her off for her first day and I cant decide whether to wear makeup or not. Do I wear makeup and cry my eyes out and scare all the children away or do I not wear makeup and look like I’ve been on a hectic 3 day bender… and scare the children away! Cant decided!!
So today I wanted to share with you MY NIGHT TIME SKIN CARE ROUTINE! My skin is quite combination and since having my first child I’ve had quite a lot of trouble with it. It’s like I hit puberty at 21. But I manage the best i can. I do struggle with break outs but I control them the best I can. And if anyone of my readers have the same trouble. Do NOT let it bring you down. It happens to the best of us. I feel like any kind of cosmetics are trial and error. Some things work for you and some don’t but I’ve recently found a few products that have been fantastic! So keep reading if you want to hear more!
First of all as some of you may know from previous post, I love taking off my makeup with a good old baby wipe! The ones I use are from Woolworths and are hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and contain no alcohol! The wipes contain aloe vera and vitamin E which is something that has always benefited my skin!
Now babies wipes wont take off 100% of your makeup so I will then soak one in my ‘Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water’! I only purchased this product a few weeks ago and it has done wonders for my skin! Its for normal to sensitive skin and contains no perfume so it hasn’t irritated my skin at all. I use this to take off eye makeup and also my lipstick! There is no need to scrub your face because this stuff literally melts it off!
After making sure all my makeup has been removed I use my ‘Neutrogena Oil-free Daily Scrub! I use this to remove any dead skin and help unclog my pores to prevent break outs! it exfoliates my skin and leaves it feeling smooth!
Ill then used my ‘The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask’. This stuff is my holy grail face mask! I do this ever second night and it clears up my skin or shrinks any already existing blemishes! It contains, tea tree oil, tamanu oil, lemon tree oil and menthol. Ill leave this on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off and my skins left feeling so cool and fresh!
Before moisturizing and only if I have any hectic break outs ill use a cotton tip and dab some of my ‘Mario Badescu Drying Lotion’ onto any blemishes that need to fuck off asap. This lotion is quite self explanitary! It dries out your pimples so don’t lather this stuff all over your face otherwise you’ll turn into a big old mess. so just apply it on the problem areas. I also made the mistake when first using it and applied to broken skin. DO NOT DO THAT! It burnt like a mother fucker. But it works! Ill leave it on for about 10 minutes and then wipe it off!
I then like to sprits my face with some of the ‘Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater’. This stuff leaves my face feeling so fresh and rejuvenated. Specially after id just been rubbing the crap out of my face. This can also be used before applying makeup and also setting your makeup in place! Its even good to use through out the day if your face isn’t handle the summer heat! Id highly recommend.
And last but certainly not least! The most important step of them all is moisturizer! My ‘Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream’. This cream is quite heavy for me so all I need is about a pea sized amount and ill rub this all over my face. This leaves my face feeling so smooth and what I love about this is that is doesn’t contain any oils!
So this is why I’m up so late and get barely any sleep, because this shit takes so long! No but seriously it really doesn’t. healthy skin is super important and we all need to use the best products we can to maintain our youthful skin for as long as we can! I hope you all enjoyed this post! Let me know if you’ve used any of these products down below or tell me what products best work for you! Love you all and thanks for reading!
This post was a tricky one for me. Do I love this palette? I dunno. But I don’t hate it! Does that even makes sense? This is what happens when your up all night with a baby projectile vomiting everywhere. What’s sleep? Should I arrange an exorcism? I don’t know, I’m tired as fuck! But Hayley does not disappoint! I created a look using this adorable little palette for you all so keep reading if you want to read my thoughts and I promise I wont mention projectile vomiting again… Starting from now…
Does anyone elses family do Kris Kringle? I think that’s how its spelt or also known as ‘Secret Santa’? Well for anyone that doesn’t know, everyone puts there name in a hat and who evers name you get, you have to buy them a present and not let them know you have them. I got my sister in law and I got her,Velvet teddy mac lipstick. Aren’t I the best! BUT her boyfriend had me and I 100% know she helped him out with the present because he got me the ‘Too Faced Chocolate Chip Palette’! Hahaha does he know what Mecca is? Regardless. Thank you steven!
This palette is super cute! Its of course chocolate scented and while putting this on, my daughter legit came over and asked me if I was eating chocolate and if she could have some. Which isn’t an unusual question because I will quite frequently hide and eat chocolate but that just helps describe how good it smells!
They picked 11 shades out of the original ‘Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette’ and turned them into mattes to create this little guy! I love the colours in this and I love how it has more then one transition shade. I wasn’t quite sure about the cool toned shades in this as they are foreign to me but they are so pretty and can definitely see myself playing with them when I grow some balls!
They swatched so well and the pigment was definitely there! I was a bit disappointed in the shade, ‘Matte Gilded Ganache’ and ‘Triple Fudge’ as they weren’t as Khaki as they looked in the pan. For some reason while swatching these I liked my finger, maybe because I was hungry and sleep deprived but I shit you not they taste like chocolate!!! You could eat these but I wouldn’t suggest doing it hahaha!
I did a eyeshadow look so you can see how it is on the eyes!
I used the shade, ‘Matte Crème Brulee’ in the crease and blended the colour up just above the brow bone. I then dipped into the shade, ‘Matte Cherry Cordial’ and packed that into my inner and outer corner. I blended that in and dragged it up into my crease leaving the centre of my lid. I then packed the shade, ‘Strawberry Bon Bon’ onto my lid for a matte halo eye look! I then used the shade, ‘Semi-Sweet’ on my lower lash line!
The shades I used were a lot cooler toned then I anticipated and they were a bit tricky to blend out then I thought they would be! I had trouble getting the colours seem less just on the outer part where I blended them. I’m not sure if its because they were a bit chalkier of an eyeshadow then I’ve used in the past!
Overall I had a lot of fun creating this look! I love first impressions reviews! It may not have worked out this time round but I’m definitely going to give it another go in the future!

Happy Thursday dolls! How has everyone’s day been? I’m actually so exhausted. School holidays are kicking my ass. My kids are well behaved but then go from 1 to 100 and it lasts all fucking day! I spend all day cleaning then by tea time its fucked again! I also could be tired because I’ve been sitting up all night watching Ultimate Beast Master on Netflix! Its so good! Its like Ninja Warrior but way more dramatic and hilarious!
I’m actually so excited about uploading this post and when this idea popped into my mind I was like ‘YESSS IM A FUCKING GENIUS!!!’. I mean, this has no doubt been done before but I’m actually so happy with how it turned out!!!
As you can see in the photo above, both palettes have very similar colours but in different order and lay outs. I’ve clearly had my BYS Palette longer too! But how similar are they!!!
BYS Berries is left and Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance is right. Personally the ABH is slightly more pigmented and the shimmer shades are brighter but its pretty close! Id also like to mention that I feel like Berries Palette has more of a purple reflect to the shades then the ABH.
So when creating this look I used, ABH on the left and Berries on the right and I used the closest shades for each step and I’ll go through with you what I used and swatch comparison of each colour.
For my transition colour I used in the ABH, ‘Raw Sienna’ and BYS I used ‘Toffee’. Now as you can see in the photo below, the ABH shade is much more pigmented so I had to build up the colour on the BYS side but we got there!
I then went in with the shade ‘Cyprus Umber’ from the ABH and ‘Shaded’ from the BYS. I used these shades in my inner and outer corner for some depth to create a halo eye! Once again I had to build up the BYS shade slightly to match the ABH side but these colours are buildable I found!
For the centre of my lid on the ABH side I used ‘Primavera’ and BYS side I used ‘Glow’. The shades together there isn’t much difference but I did find the BYS shade was much more buttery! I had no trouble applying these to each lid and didn’t need fix plus for added intensity! I also used these shades for my inner corner highlight!
Left, ABH shade ‘Primavera’. Right BYS shade ‘Glow’.
For the lower lash line I went in with the same transition colours as above, on the ABH side ‘Raw Sienna’ and BYS, ‘Toffee’. Then over top of that and closer to the lash line I went in with ‘Red Ochre’ on the ABH side and ‘Royalty’ on the BYS side! Slight more pigmentation on the ABH shade as you can see below!
So this is the final look! ABH right and BYS left! I cant tell a difference at all! Can you guys?? The BYS Berries palette is a ABH Dupe! Lets be real! Besides having to pack more colour on the BYS side it worked and I even asked my partner if there was any difference in the two and he couldn’t see it! MIND BLOWN!
So I hope you all enjoyed my little experiment! I had so much fun creating this look for you guys and I’m super stoked with how it turned out! Also a little side note!

Happy Monday dolls! How was everyone’s weekend? Not that its a big deal to you all but I went out Saturday night and drank alcohol! This is very rare for me! Its literally been almost a year and its not like I don’t like to drink and go out to the pub, its just that I’m not mentally prepared to look after children with a hang over! Its anyone’s worst nightmare. But lucky for me I woke up fresh as a daisy, the only thing that wasn’t was my snapchat story. I also tried to plug my glass of water into my phone charger too but I wasn’t electrocuted hahaha!
So today I wanted to share with you my ‘JEFFREE STAR LIQUID LIPSTICK COLLECTION’! I haven’t came across a liquid lipstick I love more then these! They’re also vegan, gluten free and paraben free and can be used on the eyes and water line which is amazing! You can really get creative with these! Ill include swatches of each and also a picture of how they look on!
First I give you the shade ‘Androgyny‘. This colour is a beautiful dark mauve with a plum undertone. I feature this one first as it was the first one I ever got! I love wearing this with a dark smoky eye.
The shade ‘Mannequin‘ is one of my all time favourite nudes! I wear this almost every time I put makeup on and it has never failed me. What I love about these liquid lipsticks are they last fucking ages! I wore this Christmas Day, drank, ate, ate a little more and when I got home it still looked fine after 8 hours of wear!
‘Calabasas‘, named after the place Jeffree lives, is a beauty. Its a stunning light pinky mauve. This was a part of his summer 2017 Chrome Collection that is still available on ‘Princess Polly’.
‘Masochist’ is a deep cool toned pink shade! I’m obsessed with this colour!
I was literally in so much pain doing all these lip swatches in one go I thought they were about to fall off! Hahaha!
‘Christmas Cookie’ is the noob of my collection. Its part of his 2017 holiday collection and I purchased this along with the ’24 Karat Highlighter Pro Palette’. Its a light nude shade with a light pink undertone!
‘Daddy’ being one of two of the collab Manny MUA and Jeffree Star did last year, is a beautiful cool toned dark nude! This colour goes with everything, specially a dramatic eye!
The second liquid lipstick in the Manny collab is ‘Im Shook’ and its so stunning! Its a burnt coral shade and as all of the colours, it dries down completely matte. So pretty!
So that was my JEFFREE STAR LIQUID LIPSTICK COLLECTION! I hope you didn’t hate it as much as my lips did! I purchase my Jeffree Star products from Princess Polly as its an Aus company and I don’t like purchasing from overseas because I’m so god damn impatient! Thank you all for reading once again!
