The ultimate spring lip – Karen Murrell “Coral Dawn”


The perfect way to defrost from winter is to re-vamp your lipstick wardrobe with something colourful. Coral Dawn by Karen Murrell has actually been a part of my makeup family since summer last year, but I’m yet to find another that matches this perfect blend of coral with a hint of red. Free from coal tar, carmine, mineral oils, triclosan, parabens and other nasties, this is still my number one go-to bold lip colour.

Swisse Olive Leaf Gel Cleanser Review | Affordable Skincare

Spending more on skincare doesn’t always give better results. In a lot of cases you’re paying a higher price for fancy packaging and marketing, not the addition of quality ingredients. If you’re funds are tight, it’s worth trying some more affordable products to see what you can find that works well for your skin and your budget.

Swisse Olive Leaf Gel Cleanser featured in my affordable drugstore skincare haul a few months ago, but it’s such a great buy that I thought it was deserving of its own review. This affordable, Australian made and cruelty free cleanser will particularly impress those of you who suffer from breakouts, blackheads or oily skin.

My skin doesn’t suffer from severe breakouts, but builds up throughout the month and ends up in a congested mess the closer I get to my happy hormonal time! With regular use of this gel cleanser, I’ve noticed a huge reduction in congestion without the drying or irritation that comes with most blemish prone products.

This gel cleanser uses olive leaf extract, glycolic and salicylic Acid to deeply cleanse the skin. It removes makeup effectively, is pH balanced and non drying.

At only $11.99 from Nourished Life it’s definitely worth trying!

Master the art of “No Makeup Makeup” | How to look like you’re not wearing makeup


I consider myself to be one of those lucky people who doesn’t really care what other people think of me. And although I love playing with makeup, I won’t hesitate to leave the house in all my bare-faced glory. Pimples, dark circles and all.

We all have insecurities and some suffer from this more than others. This tutorial is perfect for those “makeup free” occasions where you can’t bring yourself to leave the house with no makeup on. It’s also great for those of you who are looking for a quick, barely there makeup routine.


Skin should look like skin!

Wearing full coverage foundation and skipping eyeliner and lipstick is not really a “no makeup” look. The idea is to give yourself a second skin. If you don’t have a light BB crème, try mixing some moisturiser or a few drops of oil to a light – medium coverage foundation. Using a beauty blender to push the product into your skin will also give you a natural finish.

Glow, but don’t sparkle

Anything that sits on top of the skin and gives too much bling is going to be very obvious. If you must highlight, use a very subtle cream product that will melt into your skin or a dewy moisturiser to make those cheekbones pop.

Tame your brows

Simply brushing your brows or adding a subtle brow gel can give an instant lift that still looks natural. Watch my video below to see my trick for natural brows!

Go easy on the lips

If you must enhance your lips, focus on lining the high points of your top lip and the low point of your bottom lip with a skin coloured lip liner. Adding some soft shading can almost go unnoticed if it’s blended well.
