Road to Confidence: Be Fresh from Be. Winery

Remember this look?

I decided that I just had to try the one that looked the most-out-there first as I was feeling particularly adventurous yesterday. Plus, looking at the style cards just got me thinking of those Limecrime eyeliners I got an age ago. Experiment time? Why yes, sirree!

It just so happened that Sherry was around as well and there is nothing more relaxing than spending an afternoon with your girlfriend pretending to be makeup artists. She went for a more natural and effortlessly beautiful look, while me…. well. See for yourself.

I used:

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
  • Urban Decay Naked Palette
  • LimeCrime Liquid Eyeliner in Citreuse and 6th Element
  • Tony Moly Liquid Black Eyeliner
  • False Lashes from Eylure (can’t remember which style)
  • Jane Iredale Purepressed Blush in Barely Rose
  • Innoxa Lovely Lips lipstick in Passionflower

Okay, granted, it is really quite different from the original inspiration. I actually think that this look is quite wearable if you left off the orange eyeliner from the bottom eye. What do you think? Would you try it?

If you’d like to try it, remember that there is a video tutorial that I have embedded above that can guide you through the step by step of the look. Truthfully, I didn’t follow it. I just went nuts on my face, as you can see.

I also didn’t use any foundation as… well… I really don’t use foundation or BB creams anymore. /lazy

Have a glass with me, and let me know what you think!

Check out Be Winery! Wine provided for consideration, I was not paid to play with makeup. (Would be cool if I was!)

Be. Wine – Drinking just got so much more beautiful.

I love to drink – I think everybody knows that. But I must admit that I am more of a social drinker. I don’t feel the need to open a bottle, or to have a glass to wind down at the end of the day. A glass of milk will do for that. But in a social event, wine is a must.

Early this year, I came across this amazing bottle label that was doing something quite different. Their campaign was fresh, different and very obviously aimed at women. It was quite the change and I was instantly intrigued. This winery was called: Be. Winery

What they had done was match their wines with different beauty looks. Say what!? Wine matching with food is as old a tale as any, but matching with beauty looks? That’s gotta be a new one. Check out the campaigns they have done, it’s really quite amazing.

With 3 different wines to match your mood, I really like the playful vibe and cheekiness of the entire advertising campaign. The colours are gorgeous too and really, what’s not to love when there’s energy, wine and makeup all rolled into one?

I had the chance to look over the style cards that were produced for the campaign, I think the Luscious look would float my boat the most. I adore red lippies as you know, and you really can’t go wrong with sexy. It is an extremely wearable look, and I can just see all you ladies hitting a night on the town rocking this absolutely luscious look!

Over the next few months, I will be bringing to you videos and photos on these looks as I try them on myself. It won’t be exact replicas of these looks, but more inspired by. These juicy looks have really got my creative buds going, and really, doing your makeup while sipping on a glass of wine? What more could you ask for, really?

Australia Next Top Model – Hot Looks of the season

For the past few months I have been tirelessly chasing after Australia next top model. By that I mean, getting the amazing K to record it for me and then me marathoning it over the school holidays.

But ANTM is finally over, with the Live Finale having just took place last night at the Sydney Opera House. Did you watch it? Are you an ANTM fan?

I’m glad Monty won. She was my pick for the night. I did wish Izzy had gotten the audience favourite though. She was the most creative girl in the household and it sucks that she got booted out for not being creative! Such an irony.

But we are not here to talk about ANTM. Well, not literally. We are going to be looking at the makeup looks they did over their photoshoots through the season. I’ve picked out some of my favourites to share with you – here’s hoping I have time in the future to replicate them! Though I know I will never look half as hot as these girls.



How hot are those eyes? Hot, hot, hot



My inspiration to venture into plum coloured lips. Mmm.



I adore the way the eyeshadows have been done. Yum.



Those eyes kill me. Tho they look better on Monty than they do Simone.



How natural does she look here? I’m not usually a fan of neutral makeup, but if I can achieve this, I will wear it everyday!

How about you? Which looks were your favourite? Did you watch Australia Next Top Model, and if you did, what did you think of it?
