Spoiler: Eyeliner is not one of them. I can not do eyeliner to save my life.

YSL-BEAUTY-FASHION-WEEK

Fashion Week is one of my favourite times to experiment with makeup looks. It’s a time where you can really dress up and be a little more adventurous with your looks and no one bats a perfectly winged eye-lined eyelid.

Shows run day and night, so it’s the perfect time to mix things up between a day and night look. I’ve been sticking to browns, bronzes on the eyes and mixing it up between a nude or bold lip.

With these three items alone I can create such a fresh day time look. It’s been quite warm all week so I have been doing a really light foundation coverage and a sweep of highlighter under my eyes so it looks like I have gotten enough sleep.

I am also loving a nude lips for a fresh morning look.

These items are worth every penny and they last too, so if you’re worried about the price don’t be as it will last. There are certain things I think you should invest in and I think foundation and highlighter is one of them. Things like mascara and eyeliner and some lipsticks I don’t think you should worry about investing in as you go through them so quickly.

I love a soft pink lip. I usually line my lips and then put a soft or deeper nude over the top during the day.

You may have seen me post on the Brow Wiz before, but, I seriously love this product. So easy to use and I love how fine the tip is.

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS BROW WIZ

I have done a berry lip, an orange lip and a ruby red lip so far. I love this colour for Autumn and Winter. The only thing I don’t like about darker lipsticks is they tend to make your lips look thinner!!

A cult favourite! I use this on every place the light naturally hits. Cupids bow, cheekbones, tip of the nose. I also use the Charlotte Tilbury one too!

A week ago I share a snapchat (allymayhayward) on this little bottle of goodness. It’s so great to use after you’ve completed your brows to give them definition or under your eyes if you’re going for a minimal makeup look. Love a brightening concealer.

Sydney has been blessed with so many warm, almost Summer like days recently. We really haven’t had too many typical Autumn days. Choosing outfits this week has proven tough as it’s always amazing to be able to wear layers at Fashion Week. This product has been a godsend!

If there is any week you need to avoid camera shine, it’s this week!! But this also translates to any time you’re having photos taken. For me I love dewy skin, so don’t like to apply powder all over! I just apply on your t-zone! It’s also a foundation so you can use it on its own too.
