Whats On My Christmas Wish List....

Hi pretties! I hope you are all having a great week so far! I thought this would be a fun post to do as it is exactly four weeks till christmas!!!!! Something about me you should know,i LOOOOOVE christmas! It is without a doubt my favorite time of year and even more so as i now have my beautiful daughter Indie to spoil rotten,make her sit in dorky santa photo's and go christmas light looking...i'm already getting excited :)
Anyways,back to the topic at hand-whats on my christmas wish list? This was such a fun post to put together as there are so many great gift/holiday sets out at the moment,there are too many to chose from!These are all beauty/makeup related because,well this is a beauty blog so i hope you enjoy this and it gives you some inspiration for you're gift giving this year! 
Sexy Little Stowaways- By Benefit
This is one of my favorite gift sets of the season, it is a set of 10 of Benefit's best sellers! This is a great buy for only $34 off the Benefit site,especially if you are wanting to try a few of their products but dont want to fork out the price for the full size items without trying them as benefit can get a little pricey.These are mini versions of each product so they are also great for traveling.

Christmas Candy Box- Lush
This is Lush's best selling gift set and i can see why! It comes with 5 yummy,sugary smelling products and all in a pretty box,whats not to love? It comes with a lip scrub (popcorn,yum!!!),a soap,shower gel,a bubble bar and a bath balistic all for $34.95. And if you dont have a Lush near you (like me) you can also order online.

Defining Eye's Palette- Sigma Beauty
This lil baby is at the top of my list! This is the best gift you could give someone who is into makeup,it has everything! It comes with 8 eyeshadows,2 gel liners,2 pencil liners,a double ended brush and a booklet on how to create different looks using this palette and its $55. I would simply buy this palette as it was part created by Tiffany D,an all time favorite beauty guru of mine who started out on youtube,i just love her story :)
A Darling Girl Christmas Story- Darling Girl Cosmetics
Darling Girl cosmetics is one of my all time favorite indie cosmetic companies,so i got very excited to see they have released a holiday collection of eyeshadows! You can buy the set for $27 and it comes with 12 colours. I love this because it comes with a good mix of neutral and colour so there's something for everyone!

Let There Be Bright- Benefit
I have picked another benefit gift set but thats because they are so damn good this year! "Let there be bright" is a skincare set created to help you get that "lit-from-within" glow. It comes with 2 full size products and 2 mini's and a cute little box for $45.

ColorBurst Lip Butter Gift Set- Revlon
The Revlon lip butters are HUGE in the beauty world right now so i thought this was a bargain! 3 Revlon lip butters and a compact mirror for $29.95 (the lip butters normally retail here is AUS for around $22 each). This is a great deal and i love that the colours are all very wearable.

Complexion Perfection Kit- Smashbox
This is a great gift for someone who wants a new foundation routine as it comes complete with all the products to help you achieve a flawless face! It comes with a primer,foundation, concealer and perfecting powder all in travel sizes for $49.

Well there you have my favorite christmas gift ideas,i hope they have inspired you or helped you complete you're own list! What gifts are you wishing for this year?
Thankyou for stopping by,i appreciate each and every one of you :)

My Thoughts On Maybelline Eye Studio Palette's

I recently picked up two of the Maybelline Eye Studio palette's from Target when they had 30% off so i took full advantage of this great special and bought 2 for $20.I am LOVING Maybelline lately,i feel like they   are bringing out great products that rival high end brands,especially their colour tattoo's i cant get enough of them! 

These are two palettes i chose,they are both neutral-ish colours and warm which i always gravitate to. The top palette is "Irresistibly Ivy" and the bottom is "Copper Chic" which is my favorite.
These eyeshadows are so beautiful,they are like velvet! When i used these i had no creasing,hardly any fall out and the pigmentation was perfect!

 "Irresistibly Ivy"

"Copper Chic"

I have also created a look using the "Copper Chic" palette just to have a little play with it and let me just say,these eye shadows are amazing to work with! I would be more than happy to buy more of these :) 

Have you tried any of these palettes before? Are you a Mayblline fan? Thankyou so much for stopping by,i appreciate each and every one of you :)

Lilac Eyes

Hi pretty's!Long time no post,right? This weeks resolution is to be a better blogger :) Todays EOTD is very soft and girly but also a little bit smokey at the same time which i love,its a good balance! It was super quick and easy,so i hope you like it and give it a go.

Products used: Nyx jumbo pencil in "Milk",MAC eyeshadows in "Melton Mauve","Parfait Amore",Inglot eyeshadows in "Matte 336","AMC 67"

-First i started by applying eye primer over my eye lids,then over the top of that i applied the "Milk" jumbo pencil.then smudged it out with my finger.
Next using a small fluffy brush i used "Melton Mauve" around the inner corner of my eye, and then taking that colour in to about halfway of my eyelid.

-After that using "Matte 336" on a pencil brush i applied that colour around the outer corner of my eye,and blending the edges out with a clean blending brush.

-Next, in between the mauve and blue colour i patted down "Parfait Amore" on a flat eyeshadow brush to blend the colours together.

-I then used "AMC 67" on a pencil brush and patted    that down around the outer corner of my eye,this just gives the purple-ish-blue colour a bit of depth.
To finish off i applied black gel liner to my top lash line,mascara and false lashes.

Thankyou so much for stopping by,if you have any request/suggestions for upcoming post's i would love to hear them!

Green & Bronze Eyes

Hi pretties! I have to apologize for the lack of post's lately life has just been waaaaaay too hectic! But i have  for you another autumn inspired look,please dont judge lol i just happen to gravitate towards these colours.

Products used: NYX jumbo eye pencils in "Rust" and "Sparkle Green",Inglot eyeshadows in "Matte 329","Pearl 452","AMC Shine 09", "Pearl 419"

-First i started by applying eye primer over my eye lids,then just using my finger i patted down the "Rust" pencil all around my eye lid.
-Next using a pencil brush i used "Matte 329" (a matte chocolate) around the outer corner of my eye lid making a "V" shape.
-After that on a flat eye shadow brush i used "Pearl 452" (a shimmery mahogany-cranberry) and i patted that colour down in the middle of the eye lid,overlapping the chocolate colour a little.

-Next in the inner corner i used "Pearl 419" (a pearly olive green),then in between the green and the cranberry colour i patted down "AMC Shine 09" (a shimmery copper-gold). I also used a clean blending brush and blended around the edges of color.

-To finish off i lined my water line with the "Sparkle Green" jumbo pencil,lined my top lashline with the black Inglot gel liner,and applied mascara and false lashes.
