You would have seen/heard that Giorgio Armani recently launched in New Zealand. Its been all over my feed since the launch party and I have since already shared my brief opinion on some of the products on instagram.
I wanted to share some of my top picks from the Giorgio Armani collection after being able to have a good play at the launch party and test some products out at home the past couple of weeks.
Below I have included some Giorgio Armani products that I have tried myself and LOVE to bits and also some products I have heard a million and one good things about that a defiantly worth sharing with you!
The highly anticipated Giorgio Armani beauty counter has officially now launched and is open in Smith and Caugheys Queen Street.
I have been looking forward to this for months, finally being able to see Giorgio Armanis products in person and get to have a play did not dissapoint.
The new counter offers a extensive range of Giorgio Armani Makeup, skincare an fragrance. It includes the iconic and very sought after Luminious Silk Foundation. This is a foundation I have wanted to try for years so I got colour matched on the night.
I was recently invited along to celebrate the launch of Nude By Natures new lip collection. Nude By Nature already well known for their complexion products has now launched a 18 piece 100% natural lip collection with Lip Glosses, Lipsticks and Lip Liners.
Its been said that women ingest kilos of lipstick over their lifetime, if thats true thats a lot of nasty chemicals. Nude By Nature are encouraging us to choose lipstick that is good for you.
I havent used any Nude By Nature products before so I am really looking forward to giving this lip collection a go. I know my clients will love to hear what is in it!
I have been using Kevin Murphy for over 5 years now so have really developed a love for their brand and products. I feel like I really no my head around each product, what it does, house to use it, what hair type it works best on etc. I think this knowledge comes after using a product for so long, and it just becomes second nature. My hair kit is bursting with products at the moment from so many brands I love. I've collated my top 7 Kevin Murphy products that I either get asked about the most and that are my firm favorites. Id hate to know how many bottles I have gone through of each! Read on to find out more!
Benefit HELLO HAPPY Soft Blur Foundation is the newest Benefit Cosmetic 'must have'. I am so pleased benefit has created a NEW foundation with a wider range of shades numbering from 1-12. This foundation is ight-to-medium coverage, with a lightweight formula that provides a natural matte finish to the skin. It has SPF 15 sun protection and NO flashback in photos.
I was recently invited to the launch of this in to the NZ market and was absolutely spoilt with the entire collection to try out for myself. A slumber party themed launch with hot choc and the benebabes in dressing gowns.
THANKYOU SO MUCH for the feedback on my first 'Bridal Feature' where I breakdown what was used to create some of my brides looks last season. I'm exited to share with you my bride Jess's look. Jess got married at Matakana and was photographed by Chasewild. Her Hair and makeup was done by me and her flowers by Two Foxes.
Jess's makeup look was one of my most asked for bridal makeups. Bronzed Smokey eye. In my opinion this makeup can suit anyone and it works so well with bridal.
I was recently invited to the launch of a new face mask called AYLA SKIN. I LOVE a good face mask and at first I was skeptical as I hadn't heard of the brand before. Then I read up about this Pink Clay Mask and I was excited to try it. This mask went viral and sold out within a couple of hours in the Aus market! The reviews are coming in thick and fast and there instagram following is huge so I was very eager to see what this mask was all about.
Lets talk Dermalogica. Ten years ago when I trained at The Makeup School I was introduced to this brand. I was so pleased that it was the one skincare brand TMS used. I was lucky enough to use this everyday at training which enabled me to learn the ins and outs of each products and how they best work on the skin. I was recently sent a few extra Dermalogica products to add to my collection so I wanted to share with you my thoughts on each product and my new routine.
The word I'm not getting much of lately. Lets be more honest.. the word I haven't been getting much of for the last five years! (kids) I struggle without it, we all do and since I have had my second child I have only started to realize how important it is for me to get a good night sleep. Not only for my own personal benefits but for my children too!
This winter Im making some changes In order to get a BETTER NIGHTS SLEEP!
I wanted to share with you what changes I have made so far.
My tan segment continues reviewing more from the Bondi Sands collection. Im actually impressed how large their collection is. I have been chatting a lot about each product on my insgram and I wanted to give you a full round up and review of what I really think so far about the products I have on hand. I know some of you were confused as what to purchase so I hope this blog post helps you narrow it down to the tan you think is best for you.
I also reviewed their Liquid Gold Tan and Every Day tan you can read up about these products here.
