THE MAKEUP CLEANSER YOU NEED TO INVEST IN BY BOBBI BROWN


My favourite makeup cleanser of all time has to be the Makeup Melter & Cleanser by Bobbi Brown. 

The NEW Makeup Melter and Cleanser is a 3-in-1 cleanser, makeup remover and toner. It's the perfect gentle cleanser that works for me as it melts, cleanses and tones your skin all at the same time. Basically the cleanser bubbles into a lightweight foam (which feels so nice and comfortable on the skin), and it works to melt impurities, dirt, oil and makeup off your face. Skin is left feeling very cleansed and soothed which is perfect for removing makeup after a night out. From using this cleanser, I felt no irritations, redness or signs of discomfort making it very gentle on skin. 

What I love about this cleanser is that it incorporates natural ingredients such as Goji Berry Extract, Sugar Beet & Algae Extract, giving that fresh and natural scent to it. 

After using this cleanser, my skin feels so refreshed and rejuvenated. If you're after a makeup cleanser which doesn't leave your skin feeling dry or tight after cleansing, then I would highly recommend this makeup cleanser for a daily use. The cleanser is made suitable for those with normal to oily skin. 

The Makeup Melter & Cleanser is available at Bobbi Brown's online store, Myer, David Jones, RRP $60.

HOW TO ACHIEVE A DEWY MAKEUP BASE IN 3 STEPS - TIPS BY AUSTRALIA MUA NAOMI MCFADDEN


Want to know how to achieve a dewy makeup glow? 

Australian makeup artist Naomi Fadden shares her tips and tricks on how achieve that natural glow we've all been loving. I simply love the natural, dewy glow because it looks so effortless and simple. It suits just about any occasion and what better way to rock that look with three simple products by LUMA beauty, which is available at Priceline Pharmacies. 


Create that dewy glow with these products: 


Step 1Dewy makeup begins with your skin. You want to get as much moisture into it as possible. Combining an oil or serum with your moisturiser is key for achieving dewy skin. Luma’s Brighten Up Beauty Serum is perfect. 

Apply before your moisturiser or even mix a drop or two into your moisturiser. Tissue off any excess by blotting so your foundation stays put and doesn’t slide around. 


Step 2: Achieve a ‘lit from within’ kind of glow by applying a highlighting / illuminating primer next, try Luma’s Liquid Light Illuminating Primer. 

Apply with fingers; pat and work the product into the skin for a seamless application. 


Step 3: Apply your foundation sparingly, if possible using a damp sponge to keep the moisture in to keep your base looking light and fresh.

 Try Nu Skin Advanced Liquid Finish Foundation

TRIED & TESTED: NEW DERMATOLOGY INSPIRED MASKS BY RODAN + FIELDS


Face masks are an essential step for me when it comes to detoxifying my skin. 

Rodan and Fields recently launched their latest Dermatology-Inspired masks which deliver clinically-tested immediate results and long-term benefits to the skin. There are four new face masks which help to address main skincare concerns. Each of these face masks contain concentrated key ingredients such as their bubbling gel mask, a gold metallic-coloured cream mask and a formula with colour changing beads which is so intriguing. Each of the masks can look to redefine, reverse, unblemish and soothe skin. 

These face masks include: 
  • REDEFINE Rejuvenation Mask - a bubbling gel mask which looks to leave your skin feeling refreshed and smooth. Over time you can expect fine lines to be reduced which is perfect for those focusing on anti-ageing of the skin. The mask comes with biodegradable jojoba beads which helps to gently exfoliate the skin, brushing away any dead skin cells of the skin for a healthy glow. 

  • REVERSE Radiance Mask - a gold metallic cream mask which reveals a brighter and glowing complexion in literally 10 minutes. It contains Glycolic acid which helps with removing any dead skin cells on the surface leaving you with smoother and baby-soft skin once again. Furthermore it even has Turmeric Extract which helps to boost luminosity and even out the skin tone. 

  • UNBLEMISH Clarifying Mask - an intensive Sulfur clay rinse-off mask which helps with reducing excess oil and acne over time. If you happen to suffer from acne and breakouts, this is your ideal mask. It works to cleanse the skin as well as unclogging any excess oils trapped underneath the skin. I quite enjoyed using this mask because I felt that my face looked smoother and less congested. 

  • SOOTHE Rescue Mask - perfect for those with sensitive and dry skin, this mask works to reduce any redness or blotchiness of the skin. Immediately after using this mask, you'll notice how clear and healthy looking your skin will look. 

Each of the above mentioned masks RRP for $83 (you get approximately eight applications in each). Available via www.rodanandfields.com.au, or through Rodan + Fields Independent Consultants.

CREATE THAT PARISIAN NATURAL GLOW LOOK WITH THESE MUST-HAVES BY BOURJOIS



Are you ready to create a natural Parisian inspired natural glow? 


Image source: LovelySkin 

There are countless makeup products on the market, but one brand which has stood out to me has to be, Bourjois. Inspired by the Parisian life, their range is aesthetically pleasing and the products I've tried out have definitely worked for me. They're great to use for everyday (i.e. if you're after a basic and minimalistic look) or even to a social event (with a touch of glam). 

Let's get started with some of my favourites by the range, 


Highlighting Palette by Bourjois 


Hello at this chocolate bar inspired packaging. 


Fall in love with this highlighting palette, De'lice de POUDRE by Bourjois. 

Highlight those magnificent cheekbones of yours with this gorgeous Highlighting Palette by Bourjois (RRP $30, Priceline). First, can we just take a moment to appreciate how adorable the packaging looks? (For all of the chocolate lovers out there). This luxurious highlighting palette features four chocolate shades that are super lightweight in texture, as well as pigmented. It helps to add a subtle glow of bronzer, highlighter and blush to the cheeks for the added chic and glam look. 


Little Round Pot Blush, Bourjois (RRP $20, Priceline

How gorgeous is this little pot of blush, which also comes with a handy travel-sized brush. It helps to create the added sweet look to the cheeks. I love how its texture is soft and velvety which makes it very nice to apply onto the cheeks. 



Rouge Edition in shade 20 Poppy Days, Bourjois 

This long-lasting lipstick offers a beautiful and matte finish to the lips. The shade in Poppy Days is absolutely gorgeous, featuring a bright red/orange shade which definitely makes a statement. 


Eye Catching Extreme Volume Mascara, Bourjois 

I love the brush wand of this mascara as it looks to coat all of the lashes evenly. It features a high pigmented sensorial formula which brings out your lashes more. For bolder and thicker lashes, simply layer on the mascara to create more of that dramatic look. I experienced no clumping from using the mascara so it's definitely worth trying especially for its formula. 


Healthy Mix, Anti-Fatigue, Bourjois

For beautiful coverage and a smooth canvas for the eyes, I definitely recommend the Healthy Mix Concealer by Bourjois. It looks to leave the skin around the eyes looking more radiant and you'll instantly see your dark circles concealed. Also, the concealer comes with a fibre brush which makes it useful to create more of a precise and blended application.

BEAUTÉ PACIFIQUE - THE SKINCARE LINE LOVED BY SUPERMODELS & EXPERTS

Beauté Pacifique is a revolutionary Danish skincare line proven tosignificantly rejuvenate skin.
They have been in the Danish market since 1997 where their Crème Métamorphique became an instant success. The product was mainly known for its effectiveness in helping to prevent and repair wrinkles and sun-damaged skin, thanks it its concentrated formula (perfect for penetrating the skin's deepest layers). 

21 years later the brand is loved by many supermodels and skin experts such as Jennifer Hawkins and Denmark’s Søren Hedegaard who is the make-up artist and hairdresser of Crown Princess Mary.

With the temperature dropping over in the southern hemisphere, it's the perfect excuse to revamp our skincare routine. Recently I got the chance to try out their SuperFruit Skin Enforcement range which includes their Day and Night cream, Micellar Water and Hydrating Facial Mist. These are products that I'd use for my everyday skincare routine, both morning and night. I really enjoyed trying out their Hydrating Facial Mist and Day/Night Creme from the SuperFruit Skin Enforcement range. 

The Facial Mist is perfect for an everyday spritz as it's so refreshing and a great option for boosting your skin's hydrating whenever it is feeling a tad try. Skin feels very rejuvenated and instantly hydrating after use. As for their Day and Night Creme products, these felt comfortable and lightweight on the skin. I love how it leaves the skin feeling well moisturised and reduces any signs of redness. 

What makes their SuperFruit skincare range so unique is that they include ingredients such as Longonberry stem cells (this works as an antioxidant fighting UV damage and increasing the skin's collagen), Green Tea (a natural extract which reduces redness from stressed skin and looks to reduce any signs of oiliness on the skin) and Apple Tea Extract (this helps to reduce further redness and acts as an antiseptic to prevent future breakouts and blemishes). 

The SuperFruit Skin Enforcement range includes of the below: 
  • SuperFruit Skin Enforcement Day Crème (Dry Skin) (RRP $68); 
  • SuperFruit Skin Enforcement Day Crème (All Skin Types) (RRP $68); 
  • SuperFruit Skin Enforcement Night Crème (All Skin Types) (RRP $115);
  • SuperFruit Skin Enforcement Micellar Water (RRP $49); and
  • SuperFruit Hydrating Face Mist (RRP $52).

PROTECT AND NOURISH THE HANDS & FACE FOR THIS WINTER: MY MUST HAVE HANDBAG ESSENTIALS


This winter can wreak havoc with our skin especially with our face and hands. 

Look to protect and nourish the skin with some of my favourite must-have essentials including the Tough Hands by DU'It (there are two variations being the For Her - For Dry, Irritated Hands and For Dry, Cracked and Irritated Skin) as well as their Vitamin E Face Cream (which is a lifesaver when it comes to dry skin). 


Tough Hands For Her - For Dry, Irritated Hands (DU'IT) 

Since first using this hand cream, I am AMAZED by how effective it is for my dry hands. It's no doubt a potent and hydrating hand cream which contains anti-ageing properties. It leaves the hands feeling well moisturised and hydrated (even through washing hands) which is why I now carry a bottle of this miracle cream in my handbag. 


VE+ Vitamin E Face Cream (DU'IT) 

For a moisturising cream which contains about 12% of Vitamin E, it just means that it's super effective in looking to rehydrate and soothe the skin. This face cream leaves my skin feeling soft, radiant and supple which is a great everyday cream to use. 


Tough Hands - For Dry, Cracked Irritated Hands (DU'IT) 

Last but not least we have the Tough Hands - For Dry, Cracked and Irritated Hands. This bottle comes in more of a gel-lotion texture which feels light and more watery based after application. It's definitely considered as a heavy duty cream and it's ideal for incredibly dry hands. The hand cream acts a barrier against other harsh environmental factors which may dry out our hands. Overall, I felt that this hand cream felt super nice and comfortable - so ideal for those who are constantly washing their hands.
