Nail of the Day: w7 Bright Pink

hellooooooooooooo :)

sorry i haven't really been blogging or making new videos lately. been pretty busy with school and everything else going on. so i thought i would do my nail of the day to kick start it all back :)

today nails of the day is w7's bright pink. it actually doesn't have a name which is weird. i bought this nail polish for $2.50 at the Chemist Warehouse near my house. its a really amazing neon pink. I'm not usually a fan of pink but i really like this nail polish. i only used 1 coat for my nails, which is really good compared to say some Rimmel nail polishes that require at least 2-3 coats. I'm really happy that i only had to apply one for a thick even coverage and it dries really quick. so it look me less then 5 minutes to do my nails.

have you tired their range? :)

love you guys! 

Photoshoot: 21st Century Inspired

hey everyone! :)

i have the professional photos from my 21st century inspired shoot with Jaime Laycock and Daniel O'Brien. the photos turned out amazing. I'm soooooo happy with them. the makeup looked exactly how i wanted it and they were edited to perfection.

the makeup consists of:
. matte flawless complexion
. arched eyebrows, filled in
. blue eyeshadow, block
. navy eyeliner on upper lash line
. white eyeliner on waterline
. bright green bottom lashes
. navy blue top lashes
. bright orange lipstick
. matte brown contour

my inspiration for the shoot was the 21st century and color blocking. I'm not really sure how i came up with the hair but i thought it looked really edgy and just what the makeup needed. can you guys what i made the hair piece out of? no? well i made it out of a toilet roll. i just colored it in with a black texta and vwala :) cool huh? my partner Adam gave me the idea for the clothes. i originally wanted Jaime in a jumpsuit that was a bright color. but i was wondering around Supre with Adam and he suggested the skirt, and i found the boob tube.


so I'm extremely happy with everything. i think everything compliments each other. hope you guys enjoy the photos :) and thanks again to Jaime Laycock and Daniel O'Brien for everything!

please check out Jaime and Daniel's Facebook's :)

love you guys!

Photoshoot: 1950's Inspired Horror

i have some photos to show you guys!!!!! :D

i did a photo shoot at school (Australian College of Hair Design and Beauty) with photographer Daniel Oh and model Jaime Laycock on the 5th of Jan. it was a black and white 50's style look. the photos turned out AMAZING!

the makeup was a little frustrating. for some reason on the day the eyeliner i did was uneven. I'm usually a gun at eyeliner and i just couldn't get it! but with time they became even haha.

check out the photos and let me know what you think :)

totally amazing right? I'm so happy with these photos! i definitely recommend working with these 2 truly talented individuals. thanks so much to Daniel and Jaime for an amazing day and an amazing shoot!


love you guys!
