August Haul

I have been spending a lttle bit more money now that I have gotten a new job, although I should be saving for a car, I can't help buying new products! So as a wave goodbye to the idea of a car a say hello to some new make up, hair and body care products.

I have been wanting to get dry shampoo for way too long, and now i have it i am so obsessed! this one is meant to give you lots of volume and it definatly does that, love, love, love it

Beautiful smelling candles are one of my all time fovourite things. This one reminds me of Marc Jacobs Daisy and I like it alot.

Sinful Colors was recently released in Australia so I picked up this lovely red, its the perfect shade for all year round.

Body Shop you have done it again! All I can say is... Amazing!

Love this new colour i picked up by Rimmels Kate Moss Edition, it reminds me of cremecup by M.A.C

If you live in Australia head to priceline know to gat your hands on some of their make-up brushes they are doing 2 for 3 so i got this double ended crease brush, it is great!

Smells delicious and is perfect for popping in your handbag so when you forget to put on perfume in the morning you can use this instead.

I know this has been raved about a lot but know i know why this concealer is the bomb. It has no flaws, literally!

My hair was feeling really dead so for a little pick me up I grabbed this Schwatzkopt hair repair leave in conditioner, I have noticed a big difference in the last week.

I struggle with creating the perfect line of eyeliner but this Master Precise Liquid Liner creates the best line and it doesn't take a genious to use, I would recommend for anyone starting to do eyeliner or even people who are pro at it as it saves so much time.

How to: Pouty Coral Lip

I haven't bought a coral colour lippy yet so i mix the colours i already do have to create a customised look that suits me. 

Firstly i use Rimmels lasting finish lipstick in alarm, this red creates the base for the coral colour.

 Next I apply this peachy toned nude also by rimmel in 113 from the Kate Moss collection. I think this colour was discontinued but you can always use a different nude. Apply this over the top of the red and rub your lips together to mix the colour.

 Lastly apply a pinky lip gloss over the top to give your lips a pouty look. This is estee lauders lip gloss in weft.

And there you have it the final look

p.s the lighting was very poor when i took these photos so please excuse the rubbish quality 

Thanks for reading, I hope this was helpful
