I’ve always considered myself happy to be on the safe side when it comes to makeup. I don’t look to become the next Patrick Ta or Sir John (in fact I needed to google “Top 15 makeup artists” just to get those names, and then spell check). So when the opportunity arose to partner with Estee Lauder on their Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation campaign, I was almost cornered into opening my mascara-less eyes to the big bad world of makeup. Receiving my little blue bag in the mail, I pulled out four gold lined tubes – concealer, mist, foundation and glow. Now….to figure out which goes on first.
Quick phone a friend (Thanks Eddy), and I had my friend and makeup artist Abbey Love in the Makeup Hotseat to help guide the way. Take a look at the video to watch her application step-by-step, or check it out my Instagram. PS. the mist definitely goes on last.
Now that I have a perfect base coverage to work with, I will feel more confident experimenting with the smokiest of smoky eyes, or the conniest of contours.

Look no further than “A” – because ABRAND jeans is all you need right now for fit, freedom and flex.
Kick off your shoes, jump into your A’s and catch some fresh air..
How to achieve a sleek transeasonal look on a budget, you ask?
Well Little Johnny, you’ve come to the right place.
Step 1: Purchase “rib cage tank” from staple the label
Step 2: Insert pleated leather skirt from seed, and black Celine belt*
Step 3: Place shoes on feet
Step 4: Find yourself a nice staircase, maybe check out QT gold coast if you’re out and about (for those of you playing at home – boom!)
Step 5: Activate windy day
Step 6: Faux laugh, pretend to be using your phone & look deeply into the distance until you get the perfect shot
*After much deliberation, my financial advisor has requested that I remove “celine belt” from any form of budget based post – my apologies.

When it rains on the weekend, stay in with your room mates weighing out the pro’s & con’s of the physical exertion it would take to do a Frank body scrub, combine that with the time involved for cleaning up the mess of traipsing through the house half naked to get a perfectly lit #thefrankeffect shot. Or, pop on your thickest knit, condition your dry bits with some Grown Alchemist & talk about how much you regret having a crush on Jesse McCartney through your pre-teens.
