My Everyday 15 Makeup Routine – Spring Edition 

All Products Used

Hi everyone! Long time no talk, I have missed posting on here so much and as today is a public holiday here in Launceston I thought I would take advantage of it and write a well overdue blog post.  Today I am writing about my updated every day 15 minute makeup routine!  I personally don’t have much time in the morning to apply my makeup before work so all the products I use are quick to apply and versatile. I also go for long wearing products as I am at work from 8am-5:30pm.

After I have applied all my skin care I go straight in with my foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte & Poreless. This is honesty my HG foundation, it looks amazing on th skin, keeping it looking as natural as possible while having a full coverage. I apply this with my Chi Chi Cosmetics blending sponge. I find this is the quickest and best way to apply my foundation and to be honest I never apply my foundation with anything other than this sponge.  

I then do my brows while the foundation dries and sinks into the skin.  I use Poni Cosmetics Brow Brush and a powder from Booki Brow. I don’t need to do much to my brows as I get them threaded and tinted regularly. I usually only spend 1-2 minutes on my brows!  I go back to my skin and start bronzing myself up to look sun kissed and healthy. I use Too Faced Chocolate Soilel in Medium-Dark. This is a smooth bronzer which blends out very quickly! I also use this bronzer for eyeshadow and blend it through my crease with a large fluffy brush, this literally only takes a minute and makes a world of difference to my overall makeup look! I then grab whatever mascara I am loving and at the moment I am using Poni Cosmetics – White Knight Mascara. This is a great mascara as it has the two wands, one for length and one for volume. I apply a layer of each on both eyes and I apply this generously! I cannot live without mascara it opens your eyes up so much and makes you look more awake. 

Final Look- Close up brows and eyes


To finish off the skin I use some highlighter on the tops of my cheekbones and also down the bridge of my nose.  I use Moonstone by Becca and I find this gives you a nice glow without being too over the top for everyday wear.  I finish the whole look by spraying my face with a setting spray from Maybelline – Master Fix. This settles any powder I have applied and melts it into my skin to look more natural and also sets my face for the whole day.  

And voila … That is my everyday look complete!  On my lips I’ll just use whatever lip balm I have on me or a butter gloss from NYX in either Creme Bruleè or Eclair.  A little tip from me – If you need to touch up throughout the day  just use the beauty sponge you applied your foundation with. This soaks up any oils and it will have some foundation on it still so it will fix the coverage without caking your skin. 

Final Look


I hope you have enjoyed this post and stay tuned as I will be posting a lot more! I also have some exciting news which I will talk to you all about soon.

One of my European loves – Fiat 500X Pop

Working at a car dealership can be so rewarding but at the same time very dangerous… you have so many shiny new temptations around you!  By shiny new temptations yes I am talking about the cars.  I am a sucker for European cars, I think they look sophisticated and are superior to their competitors.  I am lucky enough to have been able to drive one of the new Fiat 500X (pop) a couple of times now and each time I fall more in love!

A bit of back ground on Fiat: Fiat was established in 1899 and their first factory was opened in Turin the following year. In 1957 Fiat released their famous 500 called the Nuova, it was a cheap and practical car.  Fiat has always been extremely popular in Europe but over the years the brand has began to slowly gain a larger crowd around the world and even now in Tasmania.

In 2015 Fiat released the modern and updated 500X. It is described as a “one-two punch” having off-road capabilities while still having a city look.  The model I was driving was the entry level called the: POP.  Although it was entry level it didn’t hold back on all the extras and safety features. The Pop has a 1.4L turbo engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission this makes for a very zippy car around town with a smooth automatic transition. I get to drive a lot of cars at my work and the 500X would easily be on of my favourite cars to drive. Its the perfect size and gives you a little more height of the ground in comparison to other small cars. Parking is a breeze also as you have parking sensors and also a reverse camera.  Don’t worry about safety either as the 500X has a 5 star ANCAP safety rating!

My absolute favourite feature of the 500X is the sound system..  Ever heard of Beats by Dr. Dre? Well yup, that is the sound system that comes with this car!  There are nine speakers which produce amazing quality sound.

Fiat 500X Pop

The 500X Pop starts from only $26K drive away which is an extremely competitive price. If you are looking at updating your car soon then I would 100% recommend going to your closest Fiat dealer and test driving a 500X.

Launceston – Fiat Dealership

The 500X also comes in three other model ranges which are packed full of more extras and features:

  • Pop Star
  • Lounge
  • Cross Plus

I recommend getting on to the Fiat website and having a look through all the model ranges and also the great interior view feature, it gives you a 360 degree tour of the interior! The interior is very stylish and practical also.

Thank you so much for reading!

If you have ever driven a Fiat 500X or if you are lucky enough to own one I would love to know your experience and thoughts on the vehicle, leave a comment on this post.

Benefit Australia, Hobart pre launch party!

I was lucky enough to have been invited to Benefit Australia, Hobart VIP pre launch party on Wednesday at the brand new Myer and got to take along my beauty bestie Sophie, (Ausbeautylover).  I thought I would share my experience!

We were greeted out the front of Myer and was given cute pink Benefit hard hats.  When I first saw the new Benefit counter I felt like a child at Christmas, I was so excited, it looked amazing!  Benefit are renowned for the their cute packaging and their new counter followed along with that theme!  It was adorable 🙂

Once arriving in store we were given Benefit cupcakes, sparkling water and even some Moet chardenay.. (yum)  hehe. We spent around 10-15 minutes meeting all of the amazing Benefit staff and also meeting other beauty bloggers who had been invited!

Benefit cupcakes & Moet

 

After we all settled down we were seated at their beauty table where we listened to the evolution of Benefit and got to try all of their famous products.  I was in makeup heaven, I especially loved their Hello Flawless Oxygen Foundation, Rockateur Blush, Porefessional Primer and Sun Beam Highlighter!

Benefit has brow bars and beauty counters in 45 countries around the world!! 

After trying all their products and learning more about their brand we were given a free brow shape, wax and tint!  Talk about amazing service 🙂  They only strip wax so it was a lot less painful then normal waxing, if you are in Hobart I definitely recommend stopping in for a touch up and getting them brows fleekish hehe.

I had an absolutely amazing time –  All of Benefits staff were incredible! They made you feel so comfortable and were a lot of fun.   I didn’t want the afternoon to end!

Benefit staff and Benebabes

 

Benefit were lovely enough to give me a goodie bag at the end of the event, it included;  A Benefit book, makeup bag, full size They’re Real Mascara, full size Porefessional Primer and a cute passport holder!  A huge THANK YOU to Benefit for their generosity and for an amazing event.

Goodie bag !

 

Thank you so much for reading and I definitely recommend checking out the new Benefit Australia counter if you are ever down Hobart! If you are wanting to try some of their products you are able to purchase online from http://www.myer.com.au 🙂
