The Week #56

The Week in Instagrams @nanawintour: *The cult beauty products of May *Coffee on a long day at University=Mandatory *Wet weather and freezing cold temperatures, hello Winter *Fashion Gone Rogue viewing, its been a while *The best mug you ever did see, available here *What's made its way into the Benefit Beauty Bag

Must-Watch of the Week: This video was uploaded by Louise a couple of weeks ago but it's one I've found myself going back to watch again. It is basically Louise's everyday makeup routine or How To Look Average as she puts it. As we all know good makeup takes a lot of time and sometimes you just don't have that. This look simply proves that you can look good and put a simple makeup look together in fifteen-ish minutes or less, which is roughly how long I take if I am rushing. 

Product of the Week: There's been a few new products I've been trying this week but some I'm just not sure about yet so this week's product combination outdoes all the other contenders. Firstly Nars Pro-Prime Smudgeproof Eyeshadow Base is the best primer if you want your eyeshadow to last a lot longer. Eyeshadows usually crease super fast on my lids but when I'm wearing this they either don't crease at all or it'll be a lot longer before they do crease. Mac All That Glitters eyeshadow has been on high rotation this week. Whether it's worn by itself or over other shades it looks gorgeous.

Must-Read of the Week: Fact: Emma Watson is amazing. Tavi Gevinson is also amazing. So when these two get together and have a little chat about acting, keeping journals, inspiration and Joni Mitchell I knew it was going to be good. Have a read here if you're curious.

Added to the Wishlist: Surprisingly there have been no real beauty lustings this week. That will probably change as soon as I've managed to sit down and properly read through Mecca's 2013 Beauty Election Results catalogue. After reading the above interview with Emma I got inspired to take up visual journaling again so I am on the lookout for a blank Moleskine notebook to document everything and start making more visual mood-boards again.


  1. Ok, so I just checked out the 'What's in my Benefit bag' post and *oh my gosh* I am so jealous! All of those products are just gorgeous, not to mention the beauty cosmetics bag! I need to get my hands on Benefit goodies pronto -- lucky Izzy and I are off on a Brisbane shopping trip soon. Hopefully I'll nab some while I'm there <3

    1. Benefit's products are really good! I highly recommend the Creaseless Cream eyeshadows & the They're Real! mascara.

      Have fun shopping :). You should do a haul post (hint hint)
