Makeup That Should Be Undetectable! | The Beauty Department
As a complete beauty novice, I completely adore The Beauty Department! Unlike other blogs that assume you know how to perfectly line your eyes and blend blush with bronzer, it gives tons of tutorials on how to get your basics right. I always stress out that my foundation isn’t blended in properly or I’ve got mascara clumps all over my eyelids. This article goes through all your basics and links to other tutorials on things like getting the right shade of foundation (match it to your neck, not your cheek!), how to apply cream foundation and applying concealer to blemishes. I’m thinking I might need to print it out and keep it in my bathroom!

Pretty Simple: Easy On The Eyes | Camille Styles
This year I actually followed one of my New Year’s resolutions - to start wearing makeup. I can’t believe I actually did because I would rather have an extra twenty minutes sleep than put on makeup. But I actually love it and it makes me feel better when I wear it. I’ll wear bright pink lipstick, orange blush, but I’ve only ever used netural eyeshadow. But after seeing this, I think I need to start having a go at bright eyeshadow - it’s so fun! Now to try and master the eyeliner…

The Best Blush For Your Skin Tone | The Beauty Department
As a bit of a makeup novice, I usually choose colours on what I like instead of what would actually look good on me, leading to some very dodgy makeup choices! This is a perfect little guide for all of us on how to choose the best blush - something I love to wear! I’ve been wearing an apricot tone and realised the other day that it makes my skin look weirdly yellow. Time to go out and buy myself a pale pink!

Sugar Lip Scrub | Honestly WTF
One of my favourite stores in the world is Lush. Whenever I go in there I always end up buying something even if I’m ‘just looking’. I have a habit of convincing others to buy stuff too when they’re with me! If you’re on a budget don’t go shopping with me. But it’s so expensive! I know that it’s because it’s all organic, hand made, etc, but the other day I saw a lip scrub there and it was around $12. Yikes! I can make it so much cheaper myself. This is a super super easy recipe to make, though you might have a few troubles getting the ingredients. Try health food shops and online. And then make a million little pots to give to your friends and family and you will go down in history as the person who saved everyone’s lips!

Chevron Nails | Shrimp Salad Circus
These gorgeous nails are created using a Konad stamper. I once was given one of these but didn’t know how to use it (and the instructions were in Chinese!) so I chucked it. I really wish I hadn’t because now I see one in use it seems so obvious! Its basically like a stamp - you roll the pattern onto the rubber bit and then onto your nails. Now I’m going onto eBay and finding myself a stamper!

Monochromatic Makeup | Keiko Lynn
I have the day off tomorrow and I’m going to have a go at doing this gorgeous makeup! I can’t afford Bobbi Brown makeup but I have some colours close to this. I really like the eyes, kind of like a peachy brown version of the smoky eye! If I ever become famous for any reason I’m going to hire Keiko to be my personal makeup artist!

Magnet Makeup Storage | Kandee The Makeup Artist
If you don’t have a ton of makeup and you’re looking for a way to  keep it all neat and tidy (but still easily accessible) you can’t go  past this idea! And using an old picture frame makes it like a piece of  art! Just make sure you use super strength magnets and attach it  securely to the wall - you don’t want to be woken up in the middle of  the night by a bang and a dust cloud of eyeshadow!

Shady Eyes | Keiko Lynn
Keiko is my new favourite lady! Such amazing tutorials, and I’m very  much in love with this shady eye tutorial. Whenever I try to do the  ‘smoky eye’ thing I end up looking like I slept in my makeup. Not sexy.  The best part of this tutorial is that all the shadows she uses are from  the same compact! i will be featuring more of Keiko’s tutorials in the  future but of course, click through and check the rest of her stuff out  too!

Cheetah Nails | Color Me Blue
I just bought a cheetah print craem and tan cardigan and can’t wait to wear it. I’m not usually someone who likes animal print. That is, animal print in the usual colours (i.e. like it is on the actual animal! haha!) But I love it when it’s done in pastel colours. These nails are kick-ass. And now with all the awesome tools you can get now to do your nails, it should be super easy to do this right? Right?!
