Here’s my beauty and foodie favourites from January… There’s a few!
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Nude Eyeliner – Eek, what’s with the long product names? My super thoughtful friend lovely Caron sent me this from Aussie after reading my whinge in a blog post that Rimmel doesn’t sell this eyeliner shade in NZ (Kiwis: But we can get it online). I know what you are thinking… “Why the heck do you use a nude eyeliner for??” To wake up tired eyes, that’s why! You know when you are tired and the rims of your eyes go red? Well, run a nude colour eyeliner on the waterline (i.e. your inner eye rim) and you are sorted: The red is neutralised back to ‘flesh colour’. Because this pencil is waterproof it will last a lot longer on that part of your eye (‘coz it’s slightly damp). Genius. You can, incidentally, use a white eyeliner, but a nude shade is so much more natural looking. Rimmel NZ: Please start stocking this shade! Here’s a photo of me (right) wearing this eyeliner on my waterline.
Price: NZ$9 (from ASOS with free postage)
About three years ago a wonderful friend (who shall remain nameless) and I were bitching and moaning about the perils of aging, including the overnight onset of wrinkles. Not to be outdone by her whinging about her wrinkles I pointed to the crease running across the centre of my forehead. “Oooooh yes”, she said, peering closer. “You really should get that seen to!”. Ouch! I guess that serves me right for pointing it out in the first place!
You know how I bang on about doing your eyebrows all the time? And you know how I love finding new budget friendly beauty products that do a good job? Well, I’ve discovered a new ripper of a product, found at… Drum roll, my local Dollar King shop! Introducing Milani’s Brow Fix Brow Kit. (more…)
Here’s a round-up of my favourite beauty foodie things for December! (more…)
Meet Su. New Mum of one of the most gorgeous babies I’ve seen in a long time, talented marketing whizz kid (she designed my Beauty Foodie logo) and a great friend.
I wanted to do a look using the pinky/purple hues from my new Naked palette and Su, with her gorgeous blue eyes was the perfect model to showcase the colours (oh heck, and blue eyes makes a nice change from seeing my brown eyes all the time, right?)
Looking for some last minute Christmas presents? Not feeling brave enough to join the crowds and hit the shops? Or maybe your wallet is crying out ‘no more!’ Look no further than a super easy DIY body scrub! It’s bodylicious…. If you like scrubs from Lush, you’ll love these and they are a smidgen of the price!

I wanted to do a Christmas themed eyeshadow tutorial and it was a bit of a no-brainer which colour to pick.. It’s got to be Mac’s Cranberry eyeshadow… Could any other colour be the heroine of this look? (more…)
“Do I need to get good makeup brushes?”… “Aren’t they really expensive?” These questions are two of the most frequently asked makeup-related questions I get! Yes is the answer to the first question. No is the answer (and the good news) to the second question! Keep reading, I’m here to help. (more…)
