| Romantic Spring Wedding Look | Top 3 Tips To Achieve Stay-All-Day Makeup |

When I think of makeup with staying power I look for keywords on packaging like "long-lasting" "matte" "oil-free" "15 hour wear" and so on. If an event is outside it's important to incorporate an SPF into your routine. Be it applied as a pre-makeup moisturiser, or my favourite, in your liquid makeup! Anything to save some time!

This past weekend I attended my cousins wedding. It has been quite some time since I've been to a wedding. After planning an outfit, I was left thinking 'What makeup should I wear?' It was going to be a long day of driving to & from the venue (3-4 hours), the ceremony, and a reception. I knew I needed makeup that would last ALL day long!

The products pictured below are my essentials for a matte, yet luminous makeup look. Perfect for long wear, amped up feminine lashes, and a neutral toned lip. 

Are some of your makeup favourites featured?

Day to day I don't use a primer, this just means my make-up will only stay flawless & fresh for a limited amount of time. BUT if I need stay-all-day makeup - primer is key! A primer basically works like a barrier for your skin, it smoothes your complexion and fills in any visible pores & lines. Primer creates the optimum base for a make-up look! The primer barrier ensures your make-up doesn’t slip & slide throughout the day. Pairing a primer with a long-lasting foundation and you’re guaranteed impeccable coverage that will last.

Try: Benefit's POREfessional Primer teamed with Estee Lauder's Double-Wear Stay in Place Makeup with SPF.


I have skin that tends to get oily through the day, especially if outdoors. It's frustrating to see time you spent on your makeup look wasted when oil shifts your makeup. Using a lightweight face powder will set your make-up and help to absorb excess oil, leaving you with a shine-free and long-lasting finish. 
Try: Maybelline New York SuperStay 24hr Waterproof Powder.


I know many lip products say they are 'stay-all-day products' but in most cases this just isn't possible. Instead, opt for a lip-staining product that will ensure colour throughout your day /night. Lip stains help safeguard lip colour from fading through eating, drinking and avoiding the dreaded lip marks left upon the cheeks of friends & family. 
Try: Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain. It come in 3 finishes and a HUGE array of colours for every look you need.

How do you ensure your make-up stays put all day?

The wedding ceremony venue was breathtaking. It was held along the riverbank of the beautiful Murray River in South Australia. A stunning cliff backdrop, millions of years in the making. As the sun set the cliffs turned to a bright orange hue. A truly magical day! 

What would be your ideal Spring Makeup Look?

| REVIEW | MyNewSkin | Olive & Lemon Myrtle Skin Balm | 'From Herb Farm To Skin Balm' |

MyNewSkin Herbal Skin Balm is a 100% natural, Australian-grown and made face and body balm crafted 
from a combination of 7 fresh hand-picked herbs and essential oils.

A green bouquet of freshly-picked Olive Leaf, Oregano, Chickweed, Burdock, Sheep Sorrel, Salad Burnett and Fresh Lantana 
infuse into a base of Olive Oil with either Lavender or Lemon Myrtle. These precious ingredients combine, forming an
 antioxidant-rich balm with lush emollient properties. Helping soothe, soften and restore the skin of the face and body.

MyNewSkin Skin & Body Balm:

    ✓ Nourishing

      ✓ Moisturising

 ✓ Soothing

    ✓ Refreshing

  ✓ Softening

       ✓ Replenishing

         ✓ Chemical free


Olive oil (extra virgin), Fresh extracts of: Burdock, Chickweed, Olive leaf, Oregano and Sheep Sorrel, 
Ocean salt, Bees wax, Salad Burnett and Lantana, Macadamia wax, Lemon Myrtle oil. 

MyNewSkin DOES NOT contain: synthetic colours, fragrances, petrol-chemicals and synthetic parabens. 
The balm is available in two variants. Olive and Lavender or Olive and Lemon Myrtle. 


Apply the desired amount, a little or a lot to dry skin areas. I have used this product as a face balm applied to cheeks, 
forehead, and the delicate eye area. MyNewSkin is also perfect for dry elbows, cracked heels and as a cuticle balm. 

MyNewSkin skin balm is quickly absorbed & leaves skin nourished and beautifully scented with lemon myrtle (it reminds 
me of lemonade Icypoles). This product is gentle enough for use on 'face or feet' - a true "jack-of-all-trades-product"

                                                              Perfect for a beauty treatment in a flash!

What do I really like about MyNewSkin? The herbs are grown chemical free and are lovingly handpicked and processed
 on site at a fresh-herb ‘Farmacy’ in Queensland, Australia. It is rare to find a beauty product that contains fresh plant 
extracts and is made through sustainable agricultural methods right here in Australia. 

My skin feels naturally nourished and healthy when I use this product and that's a big tick in my books. 

I highly recommend this product to all I know.
