Hi All,

I have been so busy with my freelance makeup business :) I have been fully qualified since June last year, however I wen't back and studied Photographic Makeup And Styling, in a few short weeks I will ALSO be qualified for this course. This includes airbrush makeup (AMAZE!!) and hair styling.

here is a quick pic from my facebook page.

It would be great if you all went over and liked as I regularly run comps :)

Hi Ladies,

I am so sorry I haven't been posting in a while, as I mentioned in earlier posts I am currently undertaking a Cert 2 in Retail Makeup & Skincare... assignments (theory) is all done now and I am 3 weeks of qualified!!
I think I may even post some pictures of my work :) If you are interested please let me know!!

To The haul, I recently had some cosmetics posted to me from the US..... let's just get straight into it!

Haul - MAC, Beauty Bay (Mario Badescu)

Hi Ladies,

You asked for hauls so you got them... my wallet hurts. :)

I picked up some eye shadows from MAC because I felt I needed more dark matte shades for my kit.
The reason you see two bags is because I was accidentally given one of the wrong shades and needed to exchange it. However it is technically one haul. I also returned a brush that I purchased a little while ago. The 191 square foundation brush, any excuse to buy more LOL.

Copperplate, Texture, Mystery, Embark, Shadowy Lady

I haven't had a chance to play with these shadows left other than a swatch. From a glance Shadowy Lady looks really pretty but from swatching Copperplate really packs a punch!!

Drying cream, Silver powder, Drying Lotion

I place another order with Beauty bay (a few days after my initial Naked Basics palette order) and this arrived today. Let me say from the two orders I have placed they have both come in perfect condition in two weeks or less. I am very happy!!

The purpose of this picture was to show you the consistency of the products.

Silver powder: The idea of this product is to remedy black heads, clogged pores, oils in the tzone etc. You are to wet a cotton bud, dip it into the solution and pat on the nose.
Drying cream: This product is for under surface bumps, I believe you use this on the problem area and rub in until it becomes clear, it does not need to be washed off.
Drying lotion: this is used on erupted pimples. I wanted to show you how this is a 2 part product. It will settle more.

If you have any questions about the products or would like to see a look please let me know.

Haul - MAC, Beauty Bay (Urban Decay), Strawberry net (Laura Mercier)

Hi Ladies,

I have a collective haul to show you.
These things all happened to rock up on my door step today :)

Laura Mercier Perfecting water moisture mist, Laura Mercier Mega Moisturizer Normal/Combination

My skincare came today (thank god!!) I had NO moisturizer left. I purchased both items from Strawberry net  This was a first for me, however I saved $40 so I may take this avenue from now on!

Urban Decay Naked Basics
Beauty bay was a first for me. It took 10 working days from payment to arrive (free shipping!) I am extremly impressed with their pricing as it is on par with US. I already have something else on the way :)
The only thing I did notice is that one of the eye shadows has detached from the palette, I do not blame Beauty Bay for this as my other UD palette did the same thing, they need to stop skimping on the adhesive!

I then had a friend post me 5 MAC Brushes from the US.

187 - foundation brush
109 - contour brush
116 - blush brush
130 - foundation brush
286 - eye brush

these brushes are for my kit (I can't promise the 109 will end up in there though!!)

Have you hauled anything lately?

What I am Lemming

Hey Ladies :)

I thought It would be nice to share with one another some of the items we are wanting to buy :)

I will go first!!!

Hakuhodo Brushes

I am wanting to try a few more but mainly buy some for my kit. I purchased quite a few at Imats last year and have now worked out which I can't live without and would like to put them in my professional kit also. I feel that they compliment my MAC brushes really well.

Mac Prep + Prime Highlighter

 I have been wanting to purchase these after watching about a million YT videos this week with girls using them. I am especially interested in the yellow shade called Light Boost.

That's all for now!
I'm sure tomorrow I will add more to the list.

Please comment below with what you are lemming.


Current Empties skincare/makeup

Hi Ladies :)

I have a few empties on hand so I thought I would show you and talk a little about the products.

I won't be doing these posts often as I don't really run out of anything other than skincare.

Mario Badescu Drying Lotion: I purchased this from KIT Cosmetics (In Sydney last year). I think this product does more to make me feel better than a great deal. It is designed for pimples that have surfaced (so you see a white head), you then dab it on and it will dry it out. My pimples are usually embedded so I need something to dry them out from that stage because (to be honest) I tend to pop them when they are white, the reality is that I won't walk around with puss on my face! I did however repurchase this as my fiancee likes it and I will still use it.

Laura Mercier Perfecting Water Moisture Mist: I use this as my toner morning and night. I LOVE this product, I honestly feel like my skin is drier and bumpier when I run out of it. Already repurchased!

Johnson's Pure Cotton 80 Round Makeup pads: I honestly should buy shares in a cotton pad company, or a paper towel company! These pads (in my opinion!) are terrible!! They absorb so much product. You are probably wondering why I would mention a $2 cotton pad packet. The reason being that I use these to apply my toner. They absorb roughly double the amount of $60 moisture mist that others do, meaning they cost me $30 to use! does that make sense? will I repurchase: NO WAY! J&J have some others in their range that are great. The purple packet I love.

Laura Mercier Mega Moisturiser Normal/Combination: This is my go to moisturiser :) Love it, have already repurchased!

Mac Prep + Prime Lip: This product took me a really long time to use up. There is nothing wrong with it but I think I might try a different Lip primer as apposed to re purchasing the same one (I really don't think it is a product I need multiples off!!) The only downside of this product is: It smells like onions. I kid you not!

That's all :)
