Wearable Nude Lip

Ever wanted to try a nude lip? But think it's too bold? Don't worry because this tutorial is going to make your favourite nude lip colour more wearable!

Okay that was really lame, but I personally feel like that, and super nude lips never worked for me because my lip colour is not a very light and my skin is quite medium toned. But anyway, here goes.

USA Haul

Hello lovelies!
I'm back! Recently I landed home in Melbourne airport and gosh I miss America, I had the best time of my life so far. I made some fantastic new friends and had some awesome experiences. 

Just a run down of what I did: I went to America for a 13 day Music Tour with my school. We had gigs, did all the touristy stuff and in Boston and New Jersey, we stayed with host families and went to the American schools. It was awesome! Altogether, we went to San Francisco, Boston, New Jersey, New York and Anaheim (Disneyland). 

Haul time!

Stila Lip Glaze 7 Pack @ Urban Outfitters Harvard Square, Boston for $25, $120 value!!
Shades from left to right: Majesty*, Merry Merry*, Grapefruit, Seashell*, Blush*, Guava, Kitten*, Apricot
* mean limited edition, guava is my favourite and they all smell great :)


In Stitches

P.S. I'm back! America & holiday haul soon! (:

Travel makeup/toiletry bag

Hey everyone! So some of you probably already know, but I'm going to America in a couple of days, so I thought I might show you how I packed my stuff and some products I found that are really good for travelling. 

And also, I'm incredibly sorry about the terrible quality and light from my laptop, but I wanted to post a travel makeup before I leave, and I don't have enough time to take some high quality pics, so I'm so sorry, but I will definitely have tutorials for you when I come back! (:

My makeup bag, it's from Wicked Sista
