Spring Favourites.

It's spring time and everything is fresh and alive, beautiful flowers are blooming everywhere.

It makes me so happy, for us it marks the start of the official wedding season in Perth.

As well as my house I have done a spring clean on my makeup kit, out with the old in with new.

I thought I would share with you my new favourite products, although they are not new products to the makeup world they are new to my makeup case.

First up is" Nars" blush in "Orgasm" it's iconic and been a top pick amongst makeup artists for many years, so I caved a few months ago and bought it. 
It's just beautiful and I can't get enough of it, on myself and my brides.

It gives your cheeks a perfect amount of colour with a pinky-peach flush and subtle highlights of golden shimmer, I'm in love! 

Works so well on all skin tones and perfect for my blushing brides.

Next up is this lipstick I came across in my local chemist, It's a Rimmel London lipstick in the shade 38 from the lasting lipstick range By Kate Moss.

I'm always looking for a good wedding day colour, not to pink not to nude. So after many hand swatches I found this an love it!!

It's a peachy nude so it's really good with a brown smokey eye, but still feminine for a bride.

* Colour chosen by Kate Moss.
*High Shine Colour.
*Rich Creamy Texture.
*Lasts up to 7 hours.

True Love.

Perth WA, Australia
This is a beautiful story of a beautiful nurse from Belgium, in fact she was is a midwife. A job that really guarantees you won't meet a man……..unless your Julie.

Whilst busy at work with a new Mum Julie thought nothing of the handsome man that walked into the room, it's the norm in this job, visitors all the time.

But when she looked up and they locked eyes that was it, the story began. The handsome man was the brother of the new Mum :)

So some pleasant chatting and Julie was on her way to the next room, But the brother couldn't shake her from his mind. So much so that even though it was out of character he asked his sister to give the beautiful nurse Julie his number.

She hesitated for a while but thought you know what life's too short, lets do it.

This is the result of that day and that phone call.

Now that is what I call "True Love"

Just look at these photo's and you'll see what I mean xx

Miracle in a bottle.

My job is all about faces, all faces. Young, Old, Dark, Light you name it i've worked with it. I loves faces :) so it's no surprise that I will try anything to to do with faces :) literally anything!

A few months ago I was invited by one of my close friends and fellow hair and makeup artists to attend a night of skincare, champagne and nibbles. So I said "yes" straight away mainly for the "free" champagne, I honestly never intended to buy anything at all. 

The night was lovely and filled with amazing and very successful women with incredible stories to tell, i also "love' stories. The lady who was presenting the night was the makeup artist from channel 7 in Queensland. She had my attention as we are in the same line of work so I listened, but still in my head I said no Mel, no more products :(

The night came to an end and my friend and I were chatting with this brilliant makeup artist with might I add the most perfect skin. Then right in front of me my friends buys a pack of the skincare range and me being me said "oh now i have to buy it" and i did……………….

3 months on my skin has never looked so good! It has literally changed so much I keep looking at it in the mirror going "WOW"

The product is simply a mask you roll on your face at night before bed and you wash it off in the morning, so easy. 

I bought the mask, the moisturiser and the roll on eye cream, it was in a set and sold as a special offer on the night.

I used the mask alone which worked wonders but then teamed it up with the other two products and my skin is flawless and young looking.

So thank you my crazy friend for "making" me buy this mask. I owe you one xxx

Love Mel xx

P.S. They say it much better than me so here is the info below.

You can purchase at or email me if you get stuck.

Nightly Breathable Masque
The key to a functionally rejuvenating masque is breathability. In fact, studies have shown that if a facial masque isn’t breathable, it’s not healthy for your skin. Skincerity is the world’s only breathable masque clinically proven to improve the health of your skin. It’s our Breathable Barrier® technology, which seals in your own natural moisture to deeply hydrate your skin that makes the difference. Engineered by biomedical experts and validated by numerous dermatologic research studies supported by the National Institutes of Health, Skincerity has been shown to be substantially more effective than over-the-counter creams in delivering a higher nutrient content into the skin. Simply roll on before you go to bed, and Skincerity takes care of the rest.
  • Breathable barrier works while you sleep to seal in natural moisture and simultaneously allow the skin to breathe
  • Deep cleans on contact and flash-dries in seconds
  • Delivers a continual source of nutrients to combat sun damage
  • Reduces appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and enlarged pores on face, hands, neck, or chest
Anti-Aging Complex
Peptides make up the building blocks of the essential structural proteins that keep your skin firm, healthy, and youthful looking. The aging process, as well as environmental influences, naturally break down your skin’s ability to reproduce these beautifying proteins. Peptide Plus Moisturizer, an intense anti-aging complex, replenishes the skin’s supply of peptides, reducing the visible signs of aging. An ultra-sheer, oil-free, fragrance-free formula that absorbs quickly for smoother, more radiant skin, Peptide Plus Moisturizer promotes the regeneration of the essential structural proteins your skin needs to remain healthy looking and supple.
  • Moisturizes and enriches aging skin
  • Promotes firm, healthy and youthful looking skin
  • Improves skin elasticity
  • Fights against harm done to your skin by stress, sun exposure, and naturally occurring wrinkles

Advanced Serum
Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have ageless eyes? The answer might surprise you: It’s communication. Using breakthrough science to harmonize communication between skin cells, Eye Effects 3 restores hydration and delivers anti-aging nourishment to the thin, fragile skin around the eyes. Specifically formulated to target three critical signs of aging—fine lines around the eyes, under-eye puffiness, and dark circles—Eye Effects 3 improves overall skin structure with beautiful results.
  • Three-in-one product benefits refreshes, lifts, and improves skin structure
  • Diminishes and prevents the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decreases puffiness in under-eye bags
