Beach House


Some old favourites, some new products from my collection and a free morning at the beach house.


Chopped the poor fiance out of this one, cheeky!


Flamingo was one of the lipsticks I purchased from the Iris Apfel for MAC collection, and a few of you mentioned that you wanted to see more of it so here you go! My original post with swatches is here.


The pas des copper eye souffle from essence (haul here) is something I've been using under my neutral eye looks quite a bit, and I think it's going to look great underneath the new Illamasqua neutral palette as well. (Click here for a FOTD with the eye souffle paired with Bronx from Illamasqua.) This time around I used the eye souffle by itself with a lick of mascara, liquid liner and a shimmery shadow for a highlight, because I couldn't be bothered doing anything complicated while we were away.


Benefit Hervana was the only blush I took away with me, and I was hoping it would become my new NYX Peach, aka staple in my collection. I like it, but I'm not sure whether or not I love it on my face yet. It sure is pretty though! The Garnier concealer is actually Chris', and he stole it back not long after I took these photos. His skincare products are really appealing to me lately, they're just so quick and easy to use!


pas des copper is really pretty, I think it's a great product for a subtle eye look as well as the full on bronze smokey eyes I like to do. Nice and versatile, and worth grabbing if you can find one in store.



Do you wear makeup when you spend lazy weekends away?
Do you play around with crazy looks, or go bare faced


*All products mentioned in this post were purchased by me, except for the Face of Australia liquid liner. Honesty, always.

    I looooove Hervana. At first I didn't like it that much because it's a bit sheer on me, but now I absolutely adore it. It goes with eeeeeverything <3
