If you can’t tell by the name of my blog, I’m not one for being perfect. I misspell words*, I trip over air and I certainly do not have perfect skin. But to me, that’s the beauty of people. We are all different, and that should be embraced. Well, with Illamasqua’s new collection I’mperfection (see what they did there?!), they do just that. They want to see your freckles, scars and beauty marks, in all their glory. Yep, scary right? Well it doesn’t have to be 😉 There’s no need to hide behind make up, use it to show yourself off! I implore you to check out the behind the scenes video of this collection and see what the leaders of this company say about imperfection and beauty, it really is lovely to see. And check out these gorgeous photos from the campaign. Every single person is beautiful, no matter their imperfections.
Nude eyeshadow palettes are common place these days being a sure fire way to create a safe look that can easily be turned to night. However, the hard part is finding a palette that is consistently good quality throughout the shadows. But guys, this one does it.
I have a BIG love for cream eyeshadows. BIG LOVE. I love the way they go on and how they make a fantastic base for eye looks. So I am always on the hunt for ones to add to my collection.
Enter Essence cosmetics. This European brand has been on my radar for a while, but until Target and Priceline started stocking them, they were fairly difficult to get in Australia. So obviously as soon as my local Priceline had their shiny new display up I was like a bee to a honey pot. And with that brought the purchase of these two lovely shades.
