Base tips:

  • For a flawless base mix one part primer to three parts foundation, remember this will lower the coverage but smooth out your skin more.
  • Make sure to moisturise and Prime before you put on your foundation, so your skin doesn’t such all the moisture out of the foundation.
  • Always make sure you have done all the cream products before you set your face with a powder, otherwise the foundation will cake.
  • Remember less is more, if you are using a high coverage foundation don’t use concealer if you don’t need to, to avoid caking.
  • Remember to use products suited for your skin type

Eye Tips:

  • Use tape when you want your eyeshadow to be sharp and clean
  • Remember like your face, your eyes need to be primed as well, you can do this with an eyeshadow primer or even works if you conceal and set. This will also make eyeshadow more pigmented on your skin.
  • Remember to layer eyeshadow, start with small amounts. This will help with blending it out. If you aren’t very confident with eyeliner, try black eyeshadow. It is easier to clean up and also easier to manoeuvre.

Lips Tips:

  • Always line your lips and then blend, it helps get your lipstick to last longer
  • Like everything, always prime your lips; this can be done with a scrub or even just coconut oil and a tissue.
  • Don’t be afraid to add pigments to your lips to add some excitement to your lip colour or even some highlight.

Skin Tips:

  • Sheet masks are quick and easy forms of masks; my favourite skincare tip is to leave the sheet mask on overnight, it will allow the mask to properly soak into the skin.
  • Moisturise morning and night even if its just a light moisturiser
  • It is good to exfoliate the skin once a week, this helps remove any dead skin cells
  • Always clean your makeup off, then cleanse your skin. Removing your makeup doesn’t always clean all your makeup off.

This is all the tips I have so far but you can check out more at Belle with Love linked below;

Sephora in America is so much cheaper than Australia, so learn how to take advantage of US pricing with ShopandBox.

So recently I did my second order with ShopandBox, taking advantage of the Sephora VIB sale.

What I got and their US Rrp;

  • Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette $26US
  • Smashbox Glow and Go set $29US
  • Sephora Favourites Beauty after last call $22US
  • Benefit Refined and Defined Brow Kit $34US
  • Cinema Secrets brush cleaner $8US

Total: $119US

Total with discount: $101.15US

Plus Shipping Fee and and Service Fee: $47.84US

Total Cost: $148.99US

Total Cost Aud: $198.75AUD

What I got and what they cost in Australia;

  • Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette $37AUD
  • Smashbox Glow and Go set (Unavailable in Aus) So $38.69AUD for the cost of US price
  • Sephora Favourites Beauty after last call (unavailable in Aus) So $29.35AUD for the cost of US price
  • Benefit Refined and Defined Brow Kit $59AUD
  • Cinema Secrets brush cleaner $42AUD

Total: $206.04AUD

Plus Shipping cost: $16.95

Final Total: $222.99

Savings by using ShopandBox: $24.24AUD

Yes the savings arent catastrophically great but any saving is a good saving and a lot of the time you can get amazing deals like the Sephora Favourites boxes you cant get in Australia. Its also a good idea to use Shipping services like ShopandBox when your favourite American companies have amazing specials or exclusive deals, because then you get the most for your money, another great feature from Shopandbox is the amount of samples you get given from your boxer; with my last order I got a whole mix of products including a colour-pop eyeshadow!?! One company to buy from in America is Mac Cosmetics, they have been known to have almost a 100% markup for most products and sometimes even more and it happens with a lot of the Australian Cosmetic stores. For example it’s 17 USD (22 AUD) for a Mac lippie in the US versus 36 AUD in Australia.

If you want to try, or even check out Shopandbox click the link below. You can use the discover page to find what people are buying at the moment from countries all over the world.

If you’ve shopped there before let me know about your experience, plus let me know what you want to hear more about so I can make a list of posts.

You foodz healthy meal plans, what are they like? Are they worth the buy? 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog, sorry it’s been a while since my last post I went on holiday for just under a month and it’s been so hard to catch back up. But I am trying my best to get back to regular posting. I would love if you guys could let me know what kind of posts you want to see in the comments as well. 

So anyway this post is to talk about you foodz, the meals I tried and what I thought of the food. 

So I tried quite a few of the meals, all meals are $9.95 each which is pretty good for a ready to eat healthy meal that’s not been frozen and lost all its nutritional value. 


You foodz has an amazing range from things such as salads, to pasta and ribs. The boneless ribs are amazing by the way! My favourite meal has to be the salmon, I love salmon but it’s so expensive to buy so getting a salmon meal for 9.95 is definitely worth the price. 

All the meals are full of flavour and are amazing servings as well. Most meals I can’t finish because the servings are so big which is really uncommon for calorie controlled meals. After a few days of eating the meals I could feel the difference in my stomach as it is quite sensitive and prone to bloating. I felt lighter and cleaner. I definitely think you foodz is worth the buy if your looking to lose a few kilos and give your body more energy. I am definitely going to order from them whenever I can. 
Has anyone tried them before?

What do you think of them? 

Also guys let me know what you want me to post about next. 

Royal essence ring candle + ring bath bomb review and ring reveal!

Hey guys welcome back to my blog. 

Today’s post is a review and ring reveal for the two royal essence products I tried. 

I got the watermelon lemonade candle and the bubblegum bath bomb. 

The candles cost $46.99Aud

And the bathbombs cost $24.99

Both with the chance to get a ring worth between $10 and $2000. Now that’s pretty awesome, seeming as the prices aren’t much more expensive to candles that size usually, the bathbombs are a bit more expensive then the usual but they are a less messy way of getting to reveal a surprise ring. 


So the two rings I got ended up having equal values both being worth $40 so I actually saved money in the long run. They are both gorgeous rings as well. 

This is the one I got with my candle. 

And this is the one I got with my bathbomb. I can definitely see how people get addicted to collecting the rings. The second I saw which rings I got I wanted to buy more candles and bathbombs to try find one worth $2000 

They are such a great idea and honestly it’s a win win, even if you get a ring worth $10 you get a beautiful smelling candle or bathbomb! 

I can definitely see myself collecting more. Has anyone bought one before? What ring did you get? Show me in the comments 

My Shop and Box experience! Costs, benefits and overall is it worth it? Plus giveaway sneak peek.. 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog. 

Today’s post is about my shop and box experience and haul! 

So I had the chance to try shop and box myself this month and I decided to check out Sephora US and Ulta as they are one of the two most well known makeup shops and are known to have some awesome sets and exclusive palettes.

This is what I got:

I got the Urban decay vice palette 

Which actually isn’t sold in Australia 

The smashbox light it up collection 

Rrp is 66Aud

Lorac dance till dawn palette which is an ulta exclusive and can’t be bought in Australia 

Then the Sephora favourites extravagant eyes which also isn’t sold in Australia Which gave you $134US(175aud) value for $42Us (55Aud). 


When using shop and box all you have to do is add items to a Wishlist you can pick from 29 different countries. I have used shop and box before but decided to shop from the US this time. I had boxer Yan, who was amazing they even gave me a little sample bag with my order which I thought was so sweet. When you order from shop and box you don’t need to pick just one shop you can use multiple, once your boxer receives the items they post photos on your chat so you can see they are in tact. 

Once your items are bought, You then proceeded with Invoice 2 the service fee which ranges between 10-14% with the fee the more you spend, the lower the service fee tier + international shipping

Once it’s all paid, DHL shipping takes 3 days from the US to your doorstep. I was so happy with how quick it all got to me and so well packaged as well. I will Definitely be shopping with them again. I have attached some more photos of the things I got so you can have a closer look. Also I will be giving away a Lorac palette and a shop and box experience on my Instagram so make sure you check it out

Has anyone shopped with shop and box before? What did you think if you did?

Do you guys like seeing hauls would you like to see more? 

Hypoxi, is it worth the price tag? First Week done and dusted, what did I think?

Hey guys, Welcome back to my blog. Todays post is about the experience so far that I have had with Hypoxi Hope island/ Enhance Wellness Clinic over the last week. So far I have done 3 sessions with them and over the next three weeks I will do another 9 sessions. Although I wont provide before and after pictures and measurements till the last post.

To start off, I have tried three of the machines so far; the Vacunaut+ dermology , the s120 and the L250. Each Machine has its own use and targeting areas.

The Vacunaut + Dermology targets stubborn fat around:

– Stomach and hips

The S120 Targets stubborn fat and cellulite around:

– Lower Stomach
– Hips
– Bottom
– Thighs
– Lower Back

The L250 targets stubborn fat and cellulite around:
– Lower Stomach
– Hips
– Bottom
– Thighs
– Lower Back

None of the machines are very strenuous the whole session takes around 30-35 minutes. For the first three sessions I started by doing 15 minutes in the vacunaut, then 20 minutes in either the S120 or the L250. I find the L250 a lot harder then the S120 you feel it more in your Bum and thighs. After the three sessions I have to say I can really feel it working, the lower half of my body really feels like I have put it to work. Afterwards I feel really refreshed and ready for the day ahead. The only downside to the treatment is avoiding any carbs for most of the day, I find it makes me feel a little bit light headed.

I will keep you posted on how the next few weeks go, let me know if there are any questions you have about the sessions or my results. Don’t forget to follow my blog to see all my posts.

My Everyday Beauty must have!

Hey Guys welcome back to my blog todays post is dedicated to a product I can never buy to much of…

Dry Hair Shampoo! Now if your like me and rely on dry shampoo to get you through a lazy week then this post is for you.

I have been testing out the different Klorane dry hair shampoo range and I am in love, there is one for normal, oily and dry scalps which I think is an amazing idea as I find some dry hair shampoos make my scalp quite irritated after using.

One thing I love about the Klorane dry hair shampoo is it really does give your hair that refreshed feeling and it always gives my hair a bit more volume.

Some I have used in the past just make my hair look like i’ve dumped a bag of flour on it and feels that way as well.

For all you normal hair girls you can use any of the three normal, oil control and dry scalp.

My favourite of the set is the Dry Shampoo with nettle, the nettle is added for oil control, I struggle with oily hair so it is always in need between washes so I don’t need to wash everyday.

If you struggle with a dry scalp the dry shampoo with Oatmeal is the one for you, the oatmeal soothes and moisturises your scalp while the dry shampoo refreshes your hair and adds volume.

Has anyone tried these, what do you think of them?

 

 

 

 

New Year, New Me? My Blogging and Personal Goals for this year plus a recap of the year past. 

Hey guys welcome back to my blog, or if this is the first time reading one of my posts then welcome. Today’s post is both playful and serious. Now we are in a new year there are a few things I want to change both blog wise and also in my personal life. Some of the things I aim for this year are things I should have done years ago but I am really hoping this year will be different. Firstly I will start off with a recap of 2016. 

Recap of 2016

So to be blunt this year had its ups and downs, but mainly downs. My mum was diagnosed with cancer and my mental state hasn’t been the best. 

On the upside I’ve got to spend another year with the love of my life, my soul mate. He has been the biggest support to me in every way and I am so lucky to have him in my life. 

Personal Goals

I have a few personal goals for the year. Firstly like most people I want to get in shape this year, though I’m not going to pretend that I am going to cut out all sugar or eat no bad foods (because I really love food 😍 ) but I will try to eat less of the bad stuff. 

Secondly it’s my goal to make a friend this year, a close friend. In the past my anxiety has made it really hard to make friends but I want to change that. I’ve spent too long relying on my boyfriend to talk to, but sometimes you really need another girl to talk to. Someone I can talk makeup with and have a girls night with.  

Lastly, I want to feel confident in my own skin. I want to be able to go to the beach in a bikini without feeling disgusting. I want to be able to show off my scar, because it’s the reason I am here today. I want to embrace my stretchmarks and my cellulite because they are apart of me, and what makes me. 

Blogging Goals

I have a lot of blogging goals for this year but I will keep it short so you guys don’t get bored. 

Firstly, by the end of this year I want to have 45k followers on Instagram and 500 followers on here. I want to focus more of both my blog posts and I want to post regular video reviews, swatches, looks and also my daily life. 

Also, I’ve gotten to work with some really amazing companies in the last year but there are a few companies I am aiming to get to work with by the end of this year. Including Mecca Maxima, Sephora, Colourpop and Becca cosmetics. I recently started working with Bobbi Brown cosmetics and Mac Cosmetics and it is honestly a dream come true, I hope to have some more dreams come true this year. 
Thank you for reading guys, I hope you enjoyed. Let me know what your goals are this year, both blogging and personal. Let me know what you thought of my goals as well. 💕
