awakeandinmydreams said: Hello! I was wondering if you could reccommend a good drug store makeup sealer and/or primer to help makeup stay on? Or any other tips to help makeup stay on through sweat and time? Thanks! :)
First off, make sure you aren’t applying too many hydrating products that provide a large amount of slip to the skin, this can make makeup fade quicker. Use a good oil free moisturiser or a mattifying sunscreen (I like the Boscia Oil Free Hydration Range and the *Ultraceuticals Daily Moisturiser SPF 30+ in Mattifying)
Obviously using a good primer is key to long lasting makeup, I personally find that drugstore brands tend to lack a good selection of primers and whilst they aren’t bad they just don’t seem to compare to high end versions. If you can I highly recommend dishing out the cash for the Smashbox Photo Finish Oil Free primer (go for the anti-shine one if sweat and shine is a huge issue) but otherwise the ELF Mineral Infused Face Primer is a great budget friendly alternative. (For the eyes nothing beats NARS Smudge Proof Pro Prime Eyeshadow Base but ELF Essential Eyelid Primer is good to)

Can you believe it is almost a month to Christmas? I sure as heck can’t. I love the Christmas season and can’t wait until the beginning of December when I can start decorating (I may or may not have already watched Love Actually far, far too many times) I made a huge order at the Sephora Friends and Family sale a few weeks ago (Hourglass Ambient Highlighting Palette come to me you beautiful thing) but I’m trying to hold off getting it sent to Australia until just before Christmas so that I resist the temptation to open all my new goodies. Now I’m trying to tell myself I won’t buy any more makeup until Christmas, but hey we will see how that goes (I’m already eying of the new $10 Stila Palettes at Sephora and the Urban Decay NAKED 3 even though I swore I wouldn’t buy another NAKED product) Make sure to follow me through Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Newsletter to keep up with my latest product loves (and loathes) hauls, tips and day to day musings of a beauty blogger.

Will a dark Foundation make you look Bronzed?
I’m Judge Makeup Tips and I’m about to bust you for believing one of the biggest beauty myth’s out; you now have the right to purchase a bronzer.
"Why is your foundation so light? Why don’t you go darker, it will make you look more bronzed" she said. There’s often a bit of confusion as to what foundation actually is. Foundation is designed to even out your skin tone, cover any minor imperfections and create a base for the rest of your makeup.

This week has been super, super, super busy! I got back from Sydney a few days ago and whilst I had an absolute blast I’m still super glad to be home (there is nothing quite like sleeping in your own bed and having access to your entire makeup collection now is there?) I attended a beautiful Philosophy event at Point Piper which had breathtaking views where I got to learn a little more about the brand & the new launches (I receive so many questions about their products!) I also attended the Beautydirectory Star Awards in the historic Queen Victoria Building, it was great to be in a room full of so many talented people in the beauty industry and meet loads of people, I also had a few meetings to talk about my blog & some brands. Lastly, I have so many new products to test out so I cannot wait to share them all with you!
