Me in a nutshell

I will now be replacing Kristen Stewart in New Moon hahahaha I wish! Actually I take that back I'm a dreadful actress, I would probably get assassinated by the disappointed  Twilighters. I'll just call up Chris Weitz right now and refuse the roll... wait a minute what am I saying? hahahahahaha. Sorry for the randomness, just ignore me =)

Twilight Tutorial - Bella Swan Hair

Yay my Twilight Bella Hair Tutorial is up! I had to edit it again by taking the music out (thanks a lot youtube grrr) so I was left with no sound in some areas so I decided to read aloud from Twilight for all my fellow fanpires out there hehe. I now have no more strength to upload my makeup tutorial tonight but I promise it will be up within the next 3 days maximum. I hope everyone has an awesome weekend =)

Oz Day Makeup & Randomness

Just an update to say that I'm really sorry that my Bella Swan Tutorial video's aren't up yet, my network is doing some maintenance so my internet is being super slow =(. Last week from saturday night to tuesday I was completely offline grrr but its not as worse when I was offline for 2 whole weeks. I'v had the internet since I was 12 so I'm addicted LOL. Oh wait it did just upload but stupid youtube took the sound off so I had to delete it grrr this is the second time they have done this to me. Its not like anyone can copy it coz I have a voice over the top of the low music, I'm really angry right now, shouldn't they be focusing on taking off all the naked movie scenes that sometime people put up (Yes I've seen them lol)? I'll try to upload it again in time.

I said that I would post some pics on my Aussie Day tribute green and gold makeup so here they are

If anyone is curious I used my MAC paint pot in Bare Study for a base and two Inglot eyeshadows, sorry I forgot the names.

OMG! I watched Step Brothers last night... what can I say? I freaking loved it!!!!!! I haven't laughed this hard at Will Ferrell since A Night At The Roxbury. But now I definitely prefer Step Brothers even though I still really love Roxbury. I seriously laughed so hard I started crying people! They remind me so much of my brother when he was 16, he even sleep walks and says really weird things in his sleep like they did in the movie hahahahahahahaha 

Anyways when/if my tutorials get uploaded I'll post it up on here =).

Bella Swan Tutorial

Hey, I have filmed and edited my Twilight Tutorial Series for Bella Swan's Hair and Makeup finally yay! I'm uploading the hair tutorial right now as I type (might not work as my internet is slow right now) but I wont be uploading the makeup tutorial till tomorrow as more people will see them if I upload them at different times =). This is just a really neutral look that anyone can wear to school or on a casual day. The key to this look is to basically emphasize the natural beauty of your features, focusing more on what god gave you and less on the makeup. Anyways it always takes a lot of effort (for me at least) to make tutorials mainly because of editing, as I like to put on a voice over and either a plane comes past or my cat starts singing all the time LOL. I think that I may have a break before I try another Twilight Tutorial (unless you beg me hehe) and when I do get around to it I'm thinking I might just talk use through it the old fashioned way, as I do it! HAHAHA. Here are some 
pictures =)

In other news I had an awesome Australia Day and I thank everyone so much for all their lovely comments on my Australia Day video. I did a green and gold makeup look in tribute to the day and I'll be posting those photo's up soon =).

Happy Australia Day & MAC E/S

Its Australia day this Monday so I'm either going to be at the foreshore watching the fireworks or slothing at 
the beach like the aussie beach bum I am lol. Anyways I hope you enjoys my video =)

In other news...

Ok, ok I know I said that I wasn't going to get Girlie but I failed and caved it lol. But to be fare after I bought this eyeshadow I compared it to the eyeshadow I was intending to use for my Bella Swan look and really its not even close. I hate how pictures on the internet don't look the same in real life, thats why I prefer going to the MAC store first to check them out. Like some of the mineralized skin finishes that I was eyeing up had way too much glitter in it, so I dodge a bullet there. I'm really sorry that lately every one of my post have had a twilight reference lately, I need help, no stuff that I need Edward haha

51 Things Around My Home

Yay my 51 things video is up and youtube didn't take the sound off this time, big smiles =D

Youtube GRRRRRR }:[

Ok I'm pretty annoyed at the moment as youtube is being a poop head and is taking ages to process my video grrrrrr. I really wanted to wait till it was uploaded fully before I made any post here so I could post the video of course. If anyone is wondering the upload I'm waiting for is a random 51 things around my home video. I had sooooo much fun making this haha.
Anyways sorry about this really boring post I just had to vent my frustration grrr. In my boredom waiting for youtube I took another Twilight quiz and I got Bella again yay =). I know everyone wants to be Bella but seriously Bella and I are very much alike its not funny... e.g we are both clumsy, a little socially constipated, we are both born in 1987, we both love reading classic literature, we both are shocking at sport, we are more mature then normal people our age, we have strained relationship with our Fathers, our parent are divorced, we both don't mind being alone (before Edward was in the picture). OMG I betta stop sorry I kinda got out of control there, I seriously can't help it though, I'm just so in love with the stories and its character. Anyways I betta go check to see if my vid has been completed yet.

Tagged My Top 5 Fav Movies

Hey, so I was Tagged for my Top 5 Favourite Movies, yay I like tags =). Anyways some of you might know already that I have already done a video for my top 5 movies and books so this wont be very new. I don't mind doing this again because I'm a big movie buff (story buff really) and since that last video I have made some changes to my top 5.

So here is my top 5 from first to last ^_^
All time favourite movie is 'Pride and Prejudice' (this is also my most fav novel) 2005

My second favourite movie is 'Twilight' 2008. I have to admit though that I probably wouldn't have enjoyed this movie as much if I hadn't read the books as I think there are a few things in the movie that virgin twilighters wouldn't understand or pick up on.

My third Fav is 'Practical Magic' 1998
My Fourth is 'Ever After' 1998

and my final firth fav is 'The Lion King' 1994. I'm a big disney buff so don't get surprised if I have a few disney favs hahahaha

So on my video I mention some other movies I really like and some of them include, my fair lady, gone with the wind, mulan, chocolat, Interview with the vampire...

Next post will be an update of my recent youtube video's

My Face Cleansing Routine

Hey world I'm currently editing a face cleansing routine video for youtube so it will probably be up by tomorrow. Anyways I better update this blog now otherwise I'll just get too impatient tomorrow and wont get around to it LOL.

So here are the products I use and in step form just for your guys =)

Step 1. Cleanse my face with proactiv solution
Step 2. Tone my face with proactiv and cotton wool ball
Step 3. After my face is dry I apply my proactiv repair lotion
Step 4. Moisturize, I recommend cliniques dramatically different lotion or gel
Step 5. I apply skinvitals eye brightener underneath eyes
Step 6. Spray MAC's Fix+ this product has made a huge difference with my face. No kidding, I have had only one pimple pop up since I started using it a few months back now.
*The End?*

If I'm going to apply makeup straight after prepping my face then I need one extra step.
Step 7. Apply Primer, I'm using face of australia primer atm but was using australis before.
These are pretty good drug store bought primers but what I really recommend is Napoleon Perdis's Auto Pilot Face Primer. I've run out of mine and am a bit too broke atm =(. The reason why I stopped using the australis one is because I think it smells and looks like paste glue, you know the one they have in kindergarden? hahahahaha.
I go into more detail about the products in my video so please check that out when I upload it.

Finally me being the camera whore I am hahaha. I might use this as a farewell picture with text in that empty space saying "Thanks for watching =)" hahaha

Top 6 Fav Lip Products

Ok, here I am with another entry for this evening or should I say early morning? LOL
These are my top fav 6 lip product for the moment as I'm always changing my mind and finding new awesome products. Here they are =)

Napoleon Perdis Lip Gloss in Christina (not the original packaging & is now no longer available sorry) is the bright pink one
MAC Lustre Glass in Love Nectar is the darker peach gloss
Clinique Lipstick in Blushing Nude is the lipstick in the middle
BYS Lipstick in Champagne Rain is the far right lipstick
Benefits Her Glossiness in Didn't Hear it From Me is the longest lipgloss lying flat
Burt's Bees in Honey Lip Balm which is the yellow one in the front

Too Faced Shadow Insurance is my lover

So I've had my Too Faced Shadow Insurance for a few months now and I must say I'm absolutely in love with it. It smoothes on over my skin beautifully but stays strong as a barrier between my oily skin and eyeshadow all day, so creasing is hardly an issue for me anymore. You'll find that there is a lot of competition and comparison on the internet between Too Faced Shadow Insurance and Urban Decay Primer Potion. 
I have never tried UDPP because I thought the way it is packaged is unhygienic as every time it is opened it's exposed to air and light which can allow it to become a breeding ground for bacteria and can also dry out and weaken the product. 
Another reason that turned me off the product was the overwhelming response from people who found it hard to get the last remains of the product out and eventually had to cut the tube in half. I prefer the TFSI tube by far but as I've never tried UDPP I can not compare the quality. 

I honestly don't see myself buying the UDPP as I'm completely happy with my TFSI =D. 

Here is a bit of TFSI info to explain the product in more detail =)

Colour - I would say a neutral beige but I think it suites all skin tones when applied.
Matte or Shimmer - It has the most slightest amount of shimmer to it but barely noticeable.
Fragrance - It has a pleasant mild cosmetic smell to it.
Expiry - 12 months from the first time it is opened.
Animal testing? - Nope =). "Product tested on celebrities, not animals" quoted by Too Faced.
Made in - USA.
Company Details -

I'm also going to do a video of my TFSI review on youtube so I'll post it when its up =)
Welcome to my Blogspot! It's going to be great to be able to share stuff with people via this blog as I can't upload new video's to youtube everyday. I've attached my two newest video's from youtube. They are part 1 and 2 of how to transfer lip gloss to another container. I'm really hoping to keep this blog up to date as best as I can =). Here's to future happy posts.
