Practicing my Makeup Skills

I was trying out my new Inglot palette before filming a video for youtube and this is what I came up with. I did the whole she-bang. Foundation, contour, highlight, blush, lipstick, eyeshadow, lashes, liner and brows (even though my eyebrows look untamed and bushy lol I need to get them done). I love my lid colour, it's like my new favourite colour! A coral/pink. I'll definitely be wearing it a lot this summer :) I think I'll be rocking the "all one colour" look. Same eyeshadow, lip, cheek and nail colour :) 
One thing that really stuck to me from IMATS was a lovely girl that was working at the Inglot stall, that said, I have dark hair, dark brows and a tanned complexion, any colour on my lid would look great, by that she was referring to the bright eyeshadows that I was looking at. I'd really like to wear bright shadows but I don't want to look like a goof, and she kindly reassured me, that I wouldnt lol. So I'm pretty keen on wearing brighter shadows this summer. 

IMATS Sydney 2011

This is my IMATS haul for 2011. 
I got the beauty sponge, a 20 Freedom System palette from Inglot, two Aqua eyes & one Aqua lip pencils from Makeup Forever and Ardell Demi Wispies lashes. 
I had a great time at IMATS this year, it was raining and pouring and cold but IMATS was still good ! I went on the Sunday this year and from what I've heard the Saturday was jam packed with lots of people so I'm glad I ended up going on the Sunday because most stalls were able to re-stock all the products ready for Sunday :) 
I'm so happy with my Inglot palette the colour pay off is amazing and I've realised after trying them out, that a little bit goes a looong way ! lol Which is a great thing, value for money. I think in future I'll be buying more MAC and Inglot colours. Inglot is much cheaper and I think better than MAC. With Inglot eyeshadows you get more in a pan/refill and it costs $10 each whereas MAC eyeshadows are $33 each here in Australia and is a small round pan thats probably the size of a 10cent to 20cent coin. However, I feel as though MAC might have a few colours that Inglot don't, therefore I think I'll be mixing the brands together to acquire the colours I want :) 
Makeup Forever is awesome ! I love their "aqua" range, it's their waterproof range. With me always seeming to have panda eyes at the end of the day I'm glad to know that there is a brand out their with a killer waterproof range. I'll definitely be buying more Makeup Forever products in future. Oh and they also have a great HD range! Who doesn't want to look absolutely flawless in daylight and in pictures?
All in all a great day I say :) I filmed a video on my haul from IMATS to upload to youtube, but I'm having trouble with the audio syncing in the video, it's lagging :( Hopefully I'm able to fix it and add it to this post, so stay tuned !

P.S the lady on stage in the photos is Pursebuzz from youtube, the lighting on stage was so bright the photos came up overly bright, sorry !

Royal Blue & Purple

I tried filming this makeup tutorial today but that was a huge fail as it stopped recording after 5minutes! Anywhoo I still wanted to share this look with you all. I really like it, it brings out my eyes. I have dark dark dark brown eyes that sometimes look black, so I'm always looking for colours that will make them pop! I shall be re-filming this look soon :)

IMATS 2011, Sydney Australia

I'm so excited to go! It'll be my second year going this year. I'm looking forward to it because there will be some new stalls, Inglot will be there MAC and from what I could tell from the floor plan Illamasqua might be there too !!
I'll be there on the Sunday, I have a Uni exams on the Saturday. I know right a SATURDAY! Who does that? Totally crash my weekend haha 
I'm already planning what I'm going to wear and which stall I'm going to run to first haha I think I'll be going to the Inglot stall first, I'm hoping to get the freedom system palette. Then I'm running to MAC, I've had my eye on Vegas Volt lipstick and Cream colour base Pearl, I'll see how much they are at IMATS. Then I'll check out Illamasqua if they are there, and then for the rest of the day I'll stroll around look at everything else :)
I'll definitely be sharing my haul from IMATS with you guys, and hopefully some video footage. Last year they didn't mind us taking photos and videos so hopefully its the same this year. 
If you guys haven't seen my haul from last year you guys can check that out here.

Fake Tattoos

I have always wanted a tattoo, but never really thought I could handle the pain nor do I think I'd be happy with the design of that tattoo for the rest of my life. Thank you Lord for Fake Tattoos! haha If any of you are in the same boat you guys should have a look at Fake Tattoos they have some really cool modern tattoo designs and you can design your own as well. Their designs follow the trends of whats in style for tattoos at the time :) Which is pretty cool if you ask me, because even though they are fake, they look real because of the in-style design. 
The two birds tattoo I'm saving for summer time, since summer is around the corner for us here in Australia :) and the tattoo I have on in the photo means "I am my own work of art". There is also a black version of that in the pack.
They show VIP discount codes on their Facebook page and on their Twitter so check em out there too !
