Review: Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara

I'm in an amazing mood today, i have no idea why. so its review time! and last night i bought the new(ish) mascara by Rimmel called SCANDALEYES. Its pretty awesome if i do say so myself. One of my classmates from school bought it a few weeks ago and tried it on me and fell in love! I absolutely LOVE the packaging. Only because my favourite color is orange ;)

as you can tell, the wand head is HUGE! i found this to be a bit of a problem. because i have small eyes, the brush got onto my lid and don't get me started on tyring to do my bottom lashes! i don't think that big brushes work for me. the formula on the other hand is wicked! its not clumpy and its pitch black and does apply like a dream. but again, i would use a disposable mascara wand for it. so i would definitely make your way down to a drug store/chemist and purchase this!

here is a before and after shot of how my lashes look :)

if you guys try it out, tell me what you think :)

love you guys!

Review: Nabi Magnetic Nail Polish

i have a review for you today. its for Nabi's new collection of magnetic nail polishes. magnetic nail polishes have been out for quite a while now but Australia is always behind and we get things late lol. but i was strolling through a shopping center and saw them and had to buy one! i bought mine for $8. which is really god for a special nail polish :)

the color i bought was number 26 'Tawny' it is a metallic dark red. seeing as winter is fast approaching i thought it would be nice to buy a dark color. overall i think this color is amazing. the formula is very impressive also. i only needed one thick coat and it dried pretty fast! its really simple to use and is perfect for those of you out there who don't have a nack for nail art or just cant be bothered doing much with their nails lol.

how to use the nail polish:
step one remove all nail polish on your fingers and apply a base coat.
step two apply an even thick coat of the nail polish to your nails and quickly close it up and grab the magnet and place it as close to the nail as you can and hold for about 1 minute.
step three once a minute has passed move the magnet and you should have a funky design in your nails :)

i definitely recommend this nail polish to anyone who loves playing with their nails or loves a new fad. the formula is perfect and the color range is beautiful. let me know if you try them and tell me what you think :)

love you guys!

"Rookie Mistake" & Romantic Rock Designs Fashion Show

hey everyone!

long time no blog! i have been so busy its not funny lol. this past weekend has been HECTIC! i have been on set of a web series and also done makeup for a fashion show! so i thought i would blog and tell you guys about it all! :)

ok so i had to be awake at 5am to get into Melbourne city by 7am. i was on my way to the set of "Rookie Mistake" which is a web series created by Jason Albury. click here to watch the videos. i had to makeup about 7-8 people for a bar scene. i met some really amazing people and it was a lot of fun being behind the camera again. funny enough, i had to be an extra! so when the episode is edited I'll show you all and see if you can point me out haha. we wrapped nice and early which was nice (12.30pm) so i went home and hung out for a while till i needed to be in the city again for a fashion show!

on the set of Rookie Mistake at the Turf Bar.

i arrived at the Palace Theater at 6pm and waited for my crew to turn up. (i got the opportunity to be head makeup artist for this, so YAY!) anyway.. they all turned up and we went to a room that was poorly lighted and didn't have much room and we all started doing the makeup for the Romantic Rock Designs fashion show. it was amazing makeup, simple 1950's style with different colored lips. and don't get me started on the clothes! they were so different and weird and stunning! Emily, the director of the show said that 2 models didn't turn up. so myself and another artist Samantha stepped in and were models. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN! i was expecting to just walk down a runway and be done with it, but we actually had to go around the club and take photos and all that jazz. then when it came to go on stage we were told to pose and dance! i was sooooooooooooo nervous! but the instant i walked out onto that stage i had an absolute ball! it was sexy, seductive and so gorgeous. i will have the photos very soon to show you guys! by the time the show was finished and i had packed up and everything it was 2am. i was absolutely WRECKED! by the time i got and went to sleep it was 3.30am.

this was me and Sammi before the 1st show in our outfits with hair and makeup :)

i had to be up at 4.45 to get to a crew members house at 6am for another day on the set of Rookie Mistake. being so tired the night before i forgot to set my alarm. i woke up to a txt at 6.10am saying "hey I'm at the end of my street with my hazards on" I've propelled out of bed going FUCK FUCK FUCK! i called everyone saying i was going to be late. i didn't end up getting to Laura's house till 7am and didn't end up getting to set till 7.30am. i got to set and everything was fine. i had 2 and a bit hours sleep and was up doing makeup all day long. we didn't wrap until 2.30pm or something like that and omg i was absolutely buggered. i got on the train and slept the entire way home lol. got home, played some halo and fell asleep at 8pm. and didn't wake up till 9am the next morning and i was still so tired! then to top it off i had work 1pm-4pm lol.

so that was my long busy weekend! how was everyone elses?

love you guys!
