Easter Week: MOTD

Hey guys!
Today I wanted to share a little look that I did inspired by Easter! It reminds me a lot of how I used to do my makeup and it felt a bit like a blast from the past wearing it, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wanted to wear pastels and bright colours because nothing screams Easter quite like that. It is autumn in Australia so the colours are a bit off trend at the moment but makeup is makeup and you can wear it whenever, there are no rules. Now that I’ve sufficiently gone on a tangent, let me share my Easter look with you and hopefully give you a little bit of inspiration for your own looks this week!

Christmas Outfit Ideas

Hey guys!
Today I wanted to share some cute Christmas outfits that I’ve created! I only just bought myself an outfit yesterday for Christmas day so my brainstorming for looks is still quite fresh. I’ve got looks for day and night parties that you might be attending, and an extra ‘stay-at-home’ comfy festive look! I hope that you enjoy!

Journey to Cruelty Free #1

Hey guys!

So, since becoming vegetarian, I really wanted to think about the makeup and skincare that I was using. I know that being a vegetarian doesn’t eliminate all of the cruelty involved in my eating habits but in the effort to minimise the hurt that I’m creating, I wanted to try to start using majority cruelty free products. I’m not doing this to make myself better than anyone else. This is just a personal preference that I believe aligns with my personal beliefs.

I plan on making this a sort of series where I update you all on my progress and my planning. In this post, I am going to identify what brands in my collection are cruelty free and to what degree they are cruelty free (brand doesn’t test/sell in China, parent company doesn’t sell in China, vegan). A lot of brands don’t test but their parent company sells to countries (China) where it is law to test on animals, so you’re still more or less buying into cruelty. I hope that this is helpful, I am only including brands that I personally use so this isn’t everything that is cruelty free by any means. This is already going to be the longest post ever haha. I hope that you enjoy the post!

Valentine’s Week: Cupid MOTD

Hey guys!

Today, I’m going to be sharing my most favourite post of this week! I knew I’d be doing this during this week even if I wasn’t posting once per day and I’m so happy that it turned out exactly how I wanted it to. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so cute in my life haha. I really hope that you enjoy this look as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Floral Avant-Garde look

Hey guys!

Today’s post is going to be on a look that I did mainly using Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks. I haven’t been able to post a creative look in such a long time and I feel so bad for lacking in that department because that was one of my most favourite things to post about. I’ve been wanting to get a little bit more creative with my Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipsticks because I have quite a collection now (I still don’t have enough, though) and I want to start using them for more that just liquid lipsticks. I hope that you enjoy this avant-garde look!

I basically wanted to do lots of flowers on my face. I have the anther of the flower on each of my temples with multicoloured petals shooting out from it on my forehead and cheekbones. My eyelids and lips became an anther too and I added white dots to symbolise the pollen pods and white petals around the eyes.

MOTD: Christmas Looks

Hey guys!

For the last post on Pastelsparkles for 2015, I thought that I’d share the makeup looks that I did over Christmas. I went to four Christmas related events over the last week so I thought I’d share a few of the makeup looks that I wore. I only have photos for two of the four because the last two events were me rushing to get ready/not so interesting looks haha. I hope that you enjoy!

The first look was from Christmas Eve for my Christmas celebrations with my Italian family. I had a really great night with that side of my family. The second look is from Christmas day when I spent the day with my boyfriend’s family. I also wore Santa earrings from Cabochons n’ Crystals by Sherrell Burford. I’d definitely recommend supporting this little store because they’re local and affordable!
