matchy matchy

Sometimes it’s fun to match! We match our shoes and handbags on special occasions, earrings with necklaces. Even a beach towel and bikini. How about eyes and lips? Pairing eyeshades with a matching lip colour is a great way to create a seamless look. It’s not always about finding the exact same shade of eyeshadow and lipstick – it’s more about finding complimentary colours that go together. A bit of this + a bit of that = perfection! We’ve broken down 2 looks to show you which beauties from our range to choose to create Andrea’s looks for yourself… Look #1 – light terracotta + ruby red

natural lips

Are you looking for an amazing natural lipstick? We promise ours is the best! We use hydrating olive oil in a rich formula that gives vibrant long-lasting colour. Won’t leave your lips dry or flaking – and most importantly, you’re not swallowing a dose of toxins when you wear it. did you know… Lipstick doesn’t just evaporate – it gets smudged off or eaten! Studies show that on average, women ingest between 1.5kg – 4kgs of lipstick in a lifetime. Of course, this depends on how much lipstick they wear and how often, but that’s a pretty scary fact when you consider the ingredients in most traditional lipstick formulas. Even the big cosmetic brands can pump their lipsticks with heavy metals, parabens and other undesirables. natural lipstick – hooray!

find your neutral

As a makeup artist, I love playing with dramatic eyes, dark lips and lots of highlighter. In my makeup kit, I have lipsticks of every colour, but I used to leave the nude tones for smokey eyes or stronger “eye looks” as I felt like they didn’t bring enough colour. I decided recently to leave my “intense dramatic makeup look” phase behind and explore my “is she even wearing makeup?” phase… Soft skin, together with a dewy and lightly bronzed look and neutral lip shade is the perfect mix for healthy looking skin. But how do you choose the ideal tone for you without ending with pale lips? Remember, we want to look natural but alive! And not as if our lips had vanished into our face!

hyperpigmentation: don’t cover it, glow with it!

Hyperpigmentation is no joke! As a makeup artist, I come across many women asking for a full coverage foundation. They ask me to apply foundation & concealer, plus makeup powder all over the face, in order to cover their pigmentation as much as they can. But let’s be honest: too much makeup doesn’t make us feel fresh or free! Something in these women’s eyes tells me that their hyperpigmentation makes them feel angry, sad, insecure… and basically unpretty. I know it affects them whatever their story is: pregnancy, sun pigmentation or age pigmentation. Personally, I think that every feature of you is beautiful and makes you unique, and you don’t have to feel ashamed. I’m going to share some tips on how to wear a light fresh makeup while covering your pigmentation. The secret is the GLOW.

new year shine

It’s 2019 and we are ready for awesomeness! January is the perfect time to vision all we want to accomplish for the year. If you are feeling a little sluggish after a long holiday + festive season, or maybe like your skin has had too much sun, snow or too many parties – focusing on detoxing, eating clean food, plenty of water plus early nights. It’s the recipe to get your glow back. That’s the inside. Now for the outside! We can’t go past a highlighter to bring in the new year, keep the holiday feels rolling, and also to shimmer to the office because, let’s face it, for January, we’d all rather be on a beach somewhere! Highlighter is the perfect way to remind yourself of all the exciting things 2019 will bring, of the dreams that will blossom and the moments that’ll leave us breathless. The lovely Ingrid shows us how it’s done…

here comes the sun

It’s the start of summer in the southern hemisphere. Think long days, balmy nights, endless swimming and lots of sun! We love summer, it’s a big part of the Australian lifestyle. Bring on beach days, salty skin and vegan ice cream. Tropical heat is amazing when our winter bodies first start to warm up, but some days are just too hot (and sweaty!) Beach umbrellas & hats are essential, sandals come out to play and no way do we want to spend hours blow-drying hair.
