Makeup Special

When you think of the cold weather approaching you often think about changing your wardrobe, ditching the bikinis and grabbing scarfs and boots. Girls often forget that their makeup needs a bit of a change up too! The more obvious ones would be to go down a shade or two in your foundation, but also opt for hydrating makeup to nourish your skin while helping it look great.

MUSQ

After trying out Musq products for a feature on their amazing skincare range before, I loved it so much I decided to give their cosmetics a go!

Musq is an Australian made, natural make up and skin care company. Musq uses real ingredients for real results with no hidden ingredients or hidden agenda.

CREME FOUNDATION

There’s a reason why this product was the 2012 winner for best foundation in the Natural Beauty Awards. Coming into winter, this product is especially perfect for dry skin types. It feels absolutely weightless on the skin and gives a gorgeous smooth look with a gorgeous dewy finish. This is perfectly paired with their incredible bronzer to finish a gorgeous sun-kissed look that could fool people into believing you just came back from an incredible summer holiday.

COLOUR CORRECTORS

As a child, whenever I broke into my mums makeup stash – the first thing I always went for were her colour correctors. Nothing amused me more than painting my face in greens and yellows in an attempt to look ill and try to get the day of school. Years on, correctors still remain my favourite thing in my beauty kit – but now for a more practical reason!

YELLOW

Yellow correctors are perfect to use on dark circles that appear under the eyes as the yellow tone helps to counter purple or blue tones of the skin. Perfect for after a big night like the rehearsal dinner, where you definitely want to look fresh in the morning!

Green

The green corrector helps to counter redness in the skin. After lipgloss, this is definitely my most used beauty product. It’s great to cover blemishes and minimise other skin concerns such as rosacea , acne and broken capillaries.

LOTUS LASHES

I believe that nothing that ruins a perfect look more than tacky fake looking eyelashes. Once you’ve noticed them, you cant take your eyes away. That’s why I love good quality eyelashes that enhance your overall makeup look rather than detracting from it.

All Lotus eyelashes are lightweight, reusable up to 25 times, and made with the highest quality cruelty-free mink.

For just a night out I go for a light volume, No. 116

If they’re a really special event I’m getting ready for, I go for No. 75 which is medium volume. I love how these lashes wing out at the sides, giving you the ultimate sultry doe eyed look. These still manage to look completely natural as they are designed with a cross pattern and are thicker at the roots to define the lash line.

Lano Lips

Your lips are without a doubt your most important feature on your wedding night! Winter has a bad habit of leaving your lips dry and chapped, so a little bit of extra love is needed to get them back into shape for everyday and especially your big day! This ultimate luxurious ointment by lanolips contains 100% Ultra Pure Medical Grade Lanolin which literally melts between your fingers! It is my winter saviour and I use it as a multi-purpose product, for chapped lips, dry cuticles and even my nose when it dries out!

It’s 100% natural, 100% fragrance free, 100% colour free and 100% animal cruelty free – so I 100% recommend it!
