Leavers Dinner 2014

I’m back! It’s been a long time since my last blog post… Life just got crazy and my blog took a seat in the back. This year is going to be a lot busier than the last but I’ll try to post as much as possible! Here are some photos from my leavers dinner last year in December.

Prom Makeup Look

Prom Makeup Look

Hey guys! First of all I have some exciting news! I got a hairdressing apprenticeship! So I will be finishing year 10 in just over a month, then starting work full time soon after. And with finishing year 10 comes the leavers dinner which I am so excited for! I had a makeup trial at my local beauty salon a couple of days ago and I really liked the makeup; it just wasn’t how I liked it. So today I played around and came up with a look that I liked! Also, sneak peek of my dress in the photos…



Eyes & Brows

I started off with eyes just in case I mucked up or had any fallout so it didn’t mess up my foundation. I also used a piece of sticky tape for an outline between my outer corner and brow bone to get a defined eyeshadow line, and I think it worked quite well! I used the Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Barely Branded as a base, then the Avon Smokey Eye Quad for the rest of the eye. I used a silver all over and a darker grey in the inner corner and underneath my eye. I then used the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black with an angles brush to line my upper lash line. For my lashes I used the L’Oreal So Couture Mascara. Earlier I dyed my brows with the 1000 Hour Brow Dying Kit in Dark Brown. I would highly recommend this product if you would like to do your own eyebrows; I think it turned out better than when I got it done at a salon! I then filled them in with MAC Charcoal Brown Eyeshadow.


I used MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15 with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush for my foundation. (I forgot to conceal, whoops!) I used the Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 01 for bronzing/contouring and MAC Mineralize Blush in Azalea In The Afternoon on my cheeks.


I used the MAC Frost Lipstick in Angel all over my lips and then added some of the Maybelline Elixir in 100 Petal Plush in the centre of my lips.

Extra Editions

On the day of my leavers dinner I want to add some purple to my eyes, but I need to find the perfect colour first! I also think I’ll find a new lip colour when I next go into a MAC store, so if you have any suggestions please let me know!

MAC All About Plum Look In A Box

MAC All About Plum Look In A Box

Long time, no post! The past month and a half has been crazy busy, so my blog has unfortunately taken a seat in the back. But not to worry because I have plenty of new posts ready!

About a month ago I was on the MAC website and came across the new “Look In A Box” range, and instantly fell in love… And bought one. I haven’t had a lot of opportunities to use it yet, but so far I am loving the things I have tried. The one I got is called “All About Plum” – It was an easy decision because all the rest were sold out! It comes with two blushes, six eye shadows, two lipsticks, and a double ended brush. It also wasn’t too pricey: only $115! Now onto the photos…



From Left to Right:

Lesson in love blush, All races eye shadow, Elementary pink eye shadow, Lingering dusk eye shadow, Dress to impress lipstick, Style cast blush, Fashion beat eye shadow, Stormy sunset eye shadow, Black board eye shadow & Up the amp lipstick.
