MY TOP 6 FOUNDATIONS

6 products

Hello loves! Welcome to my first beauty post! So I have been getting a lot of questions about my makeup recently and in particular, it’s generally questions about my foundation. I love being able to talk about my favourite products and recommend options for people who are still looking for the right makeup or just want something new to try.

I have been through so many jars, tubs and tubes of foundation since I bought my very first Maybelline one in 2008. Over the years, I have tried and tested a handful and didn’t feel the need to repurchase some however I have collected many favourites. Foundations, tinted moisturisers, BB creams, CC creams… The choices are never ending but I have found myself 6 absolute cannot-live-without products that I keep stocked up on at all times.

Please understand that everybody has different skin types and these reviews are based on my normal-combination skin type. I get oily throughout the day in my t-zone area and the rest of my face tends to stay very normal. So below are all my favourite complexion products right now if you guys want to continue reading!

THE COLOUR BURGUNDY

JRL Burgandy final 1

Throughout the seasons no matter how warm or cold, I am always finding myself in a somewhat black attire. My wardrobe is kind of colour coordinated and there is only a small section on the right hand side where I collect a little colour… The entire two door built in is just shades of black, grey, white and a few prints here and there.

Since last autumn/fall there have been hints of burgundy, plum, scarlet, red and anything that looks like the lovely colour of red wine everywhere. I have seen it make a come back in leather goods by major designer brands and if you were lucky enough to watch any of the runway shows from last years 4 big fashion weeks in NY, LONDON, MILAN or PARIS then you would have seen hints of the colours everywhere. From beautiful bold coats, to luxurious leather goods like boots and bags I was falling more and more in love with the colour every time I saw it.

However, because I am still learning to add colour to my wardrobe I decided to start with some everyday basics that I could absolutely wear again and again in those beautiful burgundy, plum and scarlet colours!

My favourite piece at the moment is this long sleeve bodysuit from Glamazon the Label and believe me, I have worn it more times than I can count!! Because it is a bodysuit and we have currently gone from spring to autumn here in Bris, it’s perfect for the transition.

LACED BOOTS & CORSET BELTS

 

BILLINI 1

The trend that has been all over our news feeds is still going strong and I feel like because we are heading into the cooler months here in Australia, it’s not going anywhere, anytime soon!

The lace up boots were even worn all throughout summer across the globe and there are definitely so many ways to style them. I do prefer those warmer summer days but one of the great things that comes with the Autumn and Winter months is that you can get your boots out and start wearing them with almost everything!

I am in love with the lace up thigh highs but I understand that they are not for the shy or faint hearted. These boots are pretty daring! So I decided to style them with an oversized black shirt-dress and cinched it all in with a corset style belt. These belts are so flattering! Cinching in the waist will give your body a little more shape and enhance your natural curves too. A look that is so in right now.

The black shirt-dress is also something that is so easy to throw on! If you wanted to step it down a notch, ditch the belt or add a pair of denim cut offs and you’ll have yourself a more casual look with the thigh high boots, otherwise, you can totally swap the thigh high boots for an ankle boot instead and show a little more leg!
