Beauty Bloggers You've Got To Know About

Arna Alayne 
I've have always been an admirer of women with tan and dark skin - they just look so beautiful and flawless. So in my green-with-envy state I would follow tutorials from women of colour and while their techniques, product and colour choice were spot on they were definitely not the right match for me. Even things like highlighting powders, take MAC Soft And Gentle for example, were far too warm and pigmented for my pale ass skin, it just didn't look right. After discovering Arna Alayne I have become more excited about embracing my pale skin and researching products that were more flattering to me rather than just the latest must-have.

Tiffany D Makeup
Tiffany has been a long standing favourite of mine, she was the second youtube I ever subscribed to over four long years ago. Tiffany has a very simple and natural yet classy style, preferring quality over quantity. She has a great and honest knowledge of makeup and I have always found her product recommendations to be really reliable. Beware whilst she does dabble in drugstore products she does tend to have quite an expensive taste. Tiffany is also a new mummy and she does occasionally show off her beautiful bub Olivia in some of her videos.

Jackie Aina 
This woman has the best personality. I love watching her for her great sense of humour and application/style tips and techniques - and seriously guys how cool is her hair. You guys have got to check out her video "What Is Strobing" - it had me in stitches!

April Athena 
If you are a partial hipster like me and into the whole "Nartural Skincare" who-ha thats so popular then you really have to check out April. She's a beautiful, cheerie, upbeat, positive - really any synonym of happy applies here - young mother who has a lot of D.I.Y skincare recipes. Her attitude and outlook on life is also super comforting and motivational to watch.

Tanya Burr
Tanya is an obvious choice - I swear I live vicariously through this woman! Great life, awesome job, super hot hubby, gorgeous squishy puppy etc. She also has a wealth of beauty tutorials and is uber popular at the moment.

Irregular Choice Male E Bow Blue Lace Heels

Irregular Choice - Mal E Bow

This style of shoe also currently comes in a light pink - which I am all too eager to get.

I am excited to wear these in summer, not only because of the bold colour but also because the lace detailing means ventilation for your feet, so you will stay nice and cool.

The heel is a comfortable height to walk in.

Luxury Makeup Haul and Swatches

MAC - Navy By Nine Palette 
Price Point - $65 AUD

My thoughts - The eyeshadow pans in this palette are about half the size of normal MAC eyeshadows    which personally I don't mind, I have so many eyeshadows that I am in all honesty probably never going to get through them. 
As you can see in the swatches below those with a simmer or frosted finish are beautifully pigmented and those that are matte, whilst not as pigmented are not at all chalky and blend really well. 
These "By Nine" Palettes come in four different colour ranges and at such a great price point I am definitely keen to get a couple more.

Nars - Eyeshadow Duo in Cordura 

Price Point - $50 AUD

My Thoughts - I have been following Tiffany D on Youtube for the past 4 years and have always found her beauty recommendations to be exceptional and well suited to my own tastes.
I am drooling over these colours, the lighter tan colour in particular has phenomenal pigmentation and a smooth application.

MAC Mineralize Skin Finish In Lightscapade 

Price Point - $47 AUD

My Thoughts - MAC Mineralise Skin Finishes are well know for their shade in Soft And Gentle, a beautiful rose gold highlighter. I was initially planning to follow the masses and get Soft And Gentle but after seeing Arna Alayne, a youtube who has embraced her pale skin, apply lightscapde I was convinced. It's a beautiful shade that doesn't even look like a highlighter on, it just looks like beautifully illuminated skin. I am in love.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette 

Price Point - $87 AUD

My Thoughts - Another recommendation from Tiffany D and well the rest of the makeup community. These ambient light powders are all the rage at the moment and for a good reason. I was a bit skeptical about applying them as finishing powders, I was worried I would end up looking a bit like a disco ball. But these are the most phenomenal finishing powders I have ever used. I swear my skin looks photoshopped when I use this, its illuminated in all the right ways and any problems or blemishes look diffused and less like problems!

Dim Light, Incandescent Light, Radiant Light & Lightscapde 
MAC Lipsticks  

Price Point - Regular $36 AUD, Mineralize Rich $47 AUD 

My Thoughts - You just can't go wrong with MAC lipsticks. Great pigmentation and the always feel great on the lips. 

Pretty Please (L), Snob (S) & Creme Cup (CS)
Creme d'nude (CS), Fashion Pack (Haute Dogs Collection - MR) & Rare Breed (Haute Dogs Collection - MR)

Chanel Pinceau Angled Powder Brush 

Price Point - $82 AUD

My Thoughts - This is like the god of all brushes and guess what it's another Tiffany D recommendation. The hairs on Chanel brushes are placed in shape and not trimmed which reduces the amount of fraying meaning they will last a lot longer. Its so beautifully soft and has the perfect balance between malleability and firmness.
