before and after.

So i'm not the first to admit that makeup can drastically change your natural appearance and i'm certainly not the first to get picked on for wearing it. I've had people tell me that i must be trying to hide who i am, that if you wear makeup then you are fake and 'slutty' and that's certainly not the reason why i wear it.

For a long time i couldn't walk out the door without wearing makeup. I couldn't let anyone see my natural face for fear i would be judged, not for being plain or ugly, but just judged in general.
Whenever i went out with makeup on, my confidence went up big time and i felt normal and more in control.

But in the last year i've stepped out of my makeup shell and realised.. who cares if people judge the way i look. It's my face and if there's something about it you feel the need to judge then you need to get off your high horse and realise nobody is perfect, we all have flaws and imperfections. If you can learn to love your own imperfections then confidence will come naturally.

So here is a before and after shot. Whether i'm wearing makeup or not it's my face and i'll wear it with pride!



How do you feel when wearing makeup compared to being bare faced? 

cosmic autumn.

Living in Australia we don't typically get the gorgeous autumn colours that the colder climates get. So in saying that, i'm super dooper excited to experience a proper autumn this year!! I've already noticed the colourful leaves dropping from the trees, as well as the tops going red. 
So i thought i'd do an Autumn look to welcome in this gorgeous season!

enigmatic.

I'm currently in the middle of going from my almost black natural hair colour to somewhat blonde. No idea how blonde i'm going for but so far i'm liking it! This is when it went through the really orange stage lol. Eventually i'm going to dye it proper red. Oh and here's some makeup.. :p

birthday eyes

This was the makeup i wore for my 21st birthday (in July, wow i have been slack!) I went out to dinner with my boyfriend and a couple of friends to a 50's themed diner, it had mini jukeboxes at each booth, i loved it! Afterwards we went out to an Irish pub (boyfriend + friends are Irish lol so it seemed fitting) and just had a couple pints of beer. Nothing crazy but seeing as 18 is the legal drinking age in Australia i already went through that 'i can drink legally now' stage :p

  • NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk
  • Ben Nye's Essential Eyeshadow Palette (Neutral colours)
  • Sugarpill's Burning Hearts Palette in Poison Plum
  • Lime Crime's Uniliner in Orchidaceous

i'm still here!

Sorry i haven't posted in a while, i've just been super busy with work and getting sick 9825985 times in the last few months lol. I've got a few looks to post on here so stick with me :P

Life isn't too bad at the moment, i'm still working as a barista earning crappy pay, but i love my job, i get to put my creativity into my work so that's fun! I've decided when i get bored living in Vancouver, lol, i'm going to do some more travelling, hopefully starting with South America. Other places on my immediate list include England, Ireland, Scotland, and more of Europe as well as visiting back home for a little while :)

My boyfriend has gotten me into the world of Doctor Who, so i've spent nearly every night for the past 2 weeks speeding through the series, i've just reached the first episode with Matt Smith so i'm now super sad cause Tennant has left skhgslghlg my favourite doctor so far :D but i'm sure i'll love Smith all the same :) anyway point being i thought sometime in the near future i'll try and do a Doctor Who makeup series! If you guys have any other suggestions for series i could do then please suggest them i'm all ears! :)

So anyways here is a look i wore to day 2 of the Vancouver IMATS using makeup i bought on day 1!
