Post a Quote a Day Challenge Day #2

Take your make-up off/ Let your hair down/ Take a breath/ Look into the mirror, at yourself/ Don’t you like you?/ ‘Cause I like you

Do you guys remember when Colbie Calliat’s music video for ‘Try’ came out? I do, very clearly. I remember reading an article on Buzzfeed about it and a gif set from the video almost bringing me to tears! When I saw the full music video, though, I really started crying. At the time I didn’t know why I had gotten so emotional, but now when I look back on it I think that it was something to do with the fact that subconsciously I could strongly relate to the message of the song. I, like most girls, have felt this pressure growing up to adhere to society’s idea of ‘beautiful’. When I noticed that the boys in my year weren’t looking at me and the only person who called me pretty was my mum, I began to think that there was something wrong with me. I didn’t really have a problem with how I looked, but because other people didn’t approve of me I felt like I wasn’t good enough.

Of course, this idea I had was absolutely ridiculous! The only person I should have ever aimed to impress was myself, and that is why I love this quote so much. In this video Colbie isn’t saying that there’s anything wrong with wearing makeup, but rather you shouldn’t be wearing it as a mask to impress others. At the end of the day, although wearing makeup is really nice, you should be able to take a makeup wipe to your face, look in the mirror and think ‘hey, I am beautiful!’. It took me a while to get to that point, and it was difficult. Even now I have my ‘off’ days, but this song serves as a reminder to me that, even when I don’t feel like it’s possible, I am beautiful and I don’t need to try to be anything to impress anyone. Needless to say, I think that this video should be required viewing for all women!

Here it is. Get the tissues ready.

Ok, that’s all from me!

Today I nominate Dark Charm to take on this challenge 😛

I hope you guys are having an amazing day

Lots of love

Crayon Lipsticks That Actually Work?!

IMG_5741

Hello everyone!

OK, I’m guessing that quite a number of you have tried the crayon lipstick. If your experience was anything like mine it probably went something like this: you were browsing through Pinterest one day when you spotted a pin that almost looked too good to be true. Lipsticks in any shade you like, all with the help of crayons and a little bit of coconut oil! What could possibly go wrong? Well, a dozen broken crayons and splashes of coconut oil later, I realised the answer to that question! For me, the result of my hard work was nothing short of disappointing; a goopy, slippery pseudo-lipgloss that smudged off almost as soon as I put it on! It definitely wasn’t what I was expecting, especially considering how good it looked in the photos.

However, I am incredibly pleased to tell you there is still hope!

w7 Reviews! (Duo Blusher, Flirty Eyes and Lip Bomb)

IMG_5711

Hello hello!

How is everybody going?

Rather than ramble on, I decided that I’d try my best to get straight to the point of this post! Here it goes:  last week I stopped by Chemist Warehouse and ended up leaving the store with a bag full of exciting beauty goodies! In my opinion, Chemist warehouse is one of the most fun shops to go into if you’re looking for some great budget beauty finds. Almost everywhere you look there are shelves upon shelves of discounted, good quality makeup. Plus, you can also pick up your vitamins and bath sponges on your way to the checkout (that’s a win-win in my opinion!). I could review everything that I got there, however in the words of a great American philosopher ‘ain’t nobody got time for that!’. So instead I decided that I should probably narrow my focus onto the three items I bought from the brand w7.

Makeup is Sexist?!

Hey everyone!

How are you all going?

Now, there is no denying that I am a fairly shy person. Whenever there’s a discussion in one of my tutorials I tend to shrink into the background, even if I have an opinion that I desperately want to be heard. I guess I’m a little bit nervous of what people will think, which I know that I shouldn’t be. Everybody is allowed to have an opinion, no matter how ludicrous it might seem! However, there was one instance recently where, for some reason, I just couldn’t hold my tongue.
