What’s in my bag?

6 Jan
Hello hello!

Happy New Year you beautiful people!! How amazing is 2014 going to be? Uhh, freaking amazing!

I can officially say I’m getting married this year.. Slightly terrifying. In a good way, of course. Really, it is only 4 months away… Writing it seems much more real than just saying it. 2013 will be hard to top, but I think 2014 will give it a damn good run for its money.

A belated Merry Whatever you celebrate ๐Ÿ™‚ were you lavished in family, food and presents? James definitely made me feel like all my dreams could come true. Other than my beautiful bag (that James picked, may I add) I got some gorgeous Essie nail polishes, chocolate and a Camp Takota pack which will be arriving soon.

Back to the bag. My oh so fabulous bag. Brand – Ooh La La.

I think it may look fuller than it is. Or maybe not. Shall we start with the most important pouch in my bag?

My makeup pouch. This gorgeous little dotty thing was from Daiso. If you’re unsure of what Daiso is, I feel sorry for you. Daiso is a cute little Japanese shop where everything is $2.80. EVERYTHING. I mainly keep my essential makeup items, bits and pieces and lady things in here. My lip products rotate and if I know I’m going out or need to look extra pretty, I chuck in an eyeliner, eyeshadow and mascara.

Next is my essentials pack.

Tablets, tissues, nail file, bobby pins. If ever there is an issue, it’s fixed with a tissue. Or a bobby pin. And if that doesn’t work, pain killers will stop the brain hurt.

My budget book and diary.

Part of my New Years resolution is to learn how to budget/save money/not be broke. I saw this at Kikki K a while ago and lost it up until a couple of weeks ago.
My diary is by Cath Kidston. I bought this from a cute little shop up in Olinda, Dandenong Mountains. It is so sweet and the inside is coloured and floral and so damn adorable. Cath Kidston is fast becoming a favourite designer of mine.

This brings me on to my purse, not that it has money, but it has my Medicare card and Drivers License which are important?

Not two months ago, I wasn’t really sure about this purse. I got it as a present from my future-4-month-away-mother-in-law about a year ago, alongside a great bathroom bag. It really grew on me, I actually really love it. Downside is I can’t fit all my store cars, for some reason I have a lot of them.

This is why I have converted my Estรฉe Lauder mini mascara pouch into my store card holder!

I promise you, I do not have OCD but when I’m on an organisation fix, I really get my fix on.

These are the last tidbits in my bag, most self explanatory. I should mention the little elephant coin purse (a gift from Thailand) is used for my earphones. Perfect size. Also, the sunglasses are not Gucci, the Gucci pair are in my wardrobe. These were $20 and I love them a lot.

(I can’t actually figure out if this is a fox or badger, but it’s cute and super useful!)

So that is it. That’s my whole entire bag fillings. Sweet like pie. What’s in your bag?

Talk soon!

My every day makeup

7 Oct
Hello hello!

After the excitement of yesterday I’ve come back down to more steady ground. Kind of. It’s a bit of a mess trying to get this all finalised. I guess it’s not just like we are buying a pair of shoes. It’s a little but bigger than that.

I thought I would share my everyday makeup routine with you all because I love seeing everyone else do their stuff. As I’m still very novice to all of this, I don’t actually have any brushes or fancy tools. I have my fingers and toilet paper to clean up any of the messes. I am going to do a but of research into brushes and see what I can afford ๐Ÿ™‚

Every morning I shower, use my Olay cleanser that I mentioned in an . I tone with my Nateo Young toner and moisturise with My tinted SPF15 Dove moisturiser. I don’t use concealer or foundation unless I am going somewhere a bit special – the tint in the moisturiser evens out my skin tone enough and helps dull my redness. Once all that slightly boring stuff is done I get onto the makeup.

I find that greens and browns and colours on the darker side of the spectrum work best with my skin tone. I found this little cheeky pallet for $3 from a cheapy shop when I was in desperate need of something a bit new. I’m not super picky when it comes to brand, as long as it does what it is supposed to, that is my main priority.

20131007-175958.jpg
So I generally start off with number 1 on this pallet which is an army green sort of colour in the outer corner of my lid. I usually use my index finger to work it into the crease.
Then I get number 2 and work it in the middle third of my lid. I blend it in with the outer corner.
Once it move onto number three a wipe it across my eye from the inner corner to just before the end of the outer corner.
Last, I use number 4 right in the inner part of my eye so it gets a little bit of gold on the top and under my eye. I use my pinky finger for this one.

After I do my eyeshadow I go onto the liquid eyeliner. The skill in which I recently mastered! Yay! If I can get it super thin on my upper lash line, that is how it stays. If I happen to flinch and my brush moves a little then my line is a bit thicker. Today it was a little thicker, I had a super crazy urge to sneeze.

20131007-180754.jpg
Once I’m happy with my liquid eyeliner I move onto pencil liner. Once upon a time I would just use black eyeshadow on my lower water line but I moved on from that stage of my life. Also, it’s kind of hard to do the upper water line with powder. I am also at a stage where I like to only line a third of my lower water line. So that is my next step…

20131007-182257.jpg
I line the lower water line about a third of the way across and also just under the water line. Once I do that I smudge the liner a little bit with my ring finger. I line the upper water line the whole way across.

So the process is nearly over. I already have quite long eye lashes but I like to define them a little. I don’t curl or anything, I just whack a little bit of mascara on. One thing I do with mascara is that I start right from the base of my lash, it fills in any of the gaps my liner missed.

20131007-183058.jpg
Once this is all done I add a little bit of 5 from the eyeshadow pallet underneath my eyebrow, down the middle of my nose and the little bit in the middle of my upper lip. I don’t do this every day though, maybe once or twice a week.
My finishing touch is my new favorite gloss, Apocalips in Celestial. It is such a pretty colour.

20131007-183658.jpg

So that is it! It takes me around 5 minutes to do this in the morning before work or uni. I find that by applying my moisturiser all over my face and finishing on my eyes, it works almost like a base. It doesn’t crease or fade that much ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay, so that is it for today.

Love Matilde xx

I totally forgot to add the final look on me. Oops! Lucky I don’t have a million followers who would notice ๐Ÿ™‚
