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!
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.
BRIDAL FEATURE // GET JESS'S LOOK
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.
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 beautiful Morgan. Morgan was a dream bride of my 2017/2018 wedding season and I loved her makeup look so much I wanted to share with you what was used to create it. I thought it might be interesting for you and defiantly my upcoming brides to gather some inspiration. A new little feature on the blog I will start doing more regularly.
Morgans look might be 'too much' for some but she really pulled this look off and loved makeup so much herself so a last minute decision on the day was to amp it up a bit! She totally pulled it off.
I still love looking at her before and after photos!
As a young teen before my career I suffered from oily skin, I used to be afraid to apply moisturizer to it from lack of knowledge how to look after my skin I guess. Fast forward 10 years my skin has done a full circle and is now mostly dry all over. I try to take decent care of my skin and have always followed a good routine. I wouldnt consider my skin to be that bad. I have been using the same products (asap skincare) for several years. You know when you find products that work and give you the results you want you stick with it right? It wasn't until Clinique sent me this duo of their Smart Moisturizer and the Fresh Pressed Booster that I thought what better time to mix up my routine, try something new, hope for good results and take part in the 7 Day Fresh Pressed Challenge...
