I say ‘random cosmetics’ because all cosmetics and makeup that come into my life are random. I never know exactly what I’m looking for so coming up with my perfect kit of cosmetics has taken many years, lots of trial and error and often some skin issues along the way. I also don’t actually care about makeup that much. I like my makeup to look good and do it’s job but I have no interest in finding miracle products myself. I’d rather someone just tell me what to get. I love a makeup expert because they make the whole face of slap process so much less painful for me. Hot tip: Read Amazing Face by Zoe Foster Blake. It’s awesome, total no bullshit advice for people who don’t really know what they’re doing with make-up.
I usually do an outfit post on Fridays but I’m doing an outfit/face post.

Here’s what I’m using on my face right now…
I bought this in March this year because my brother was getting married and David Jones have this thing where you can get your makeup done for free if you spend $60 on product. So that’s how this miracle foundation came into my life and I bloody love it. I didn’t randomly select Laura Mercier though. I went to jewellery school with a woman who worked at Mecca and she would fan girl hard over all things Laura Mercier. This is probably my 5th Laura Mercier cover product and I have no complaints. It’s ace.
I’ve had this for so long the label has worn off. I use it every day and I love it. I was so stoked when I saw Chrissy from Hair Romance using it the other day because she was able to tell me where I got it from. You can grab it from Sephora and I highly recommend you do. I don’t think I’ll ever use another concealer, this one is so perfect.
I just randomly grabbed this one day from David Jones and it’s pretty ace. Just gives a nice little rosy lift, particularly in winter when all the colour goes from my face.
Honestly? I don’t love this mascara. I’m a Telescopic gal and I will going back to that one after this one has had it but it’s not too bad for a supermarket buy.
I don’t wear eyeliner all the time as a rule but every now and then I watch a Wes Anderson film and decide that eyeliner is an essential part of life. I’m in one of those phases now. I grabbed this at Priceline (I don’t really do the fancy make-up counter thing) and it’s great. Really creamy, slides on smoothly and lasts all day. Can’t ask for much more than that can you?
I got two of these for free in a goody bag from Sephora and I’m totally in love. I didn’t even know that Marc Jacobs did make-up and then these things came into my life. Hands down the best liquid eye liner I’ve ever used and I say this because I’m rubbish at applying liquid eyeliner and this stuff is fool proof.
I’m on my third tube of this stuff and it rocks. It’s now my signature colour. Have you read Eccentric Glamour by Simon Doonan? I’ts fabulous. He recommends finding your ideal lipstick shade and then buying 20 tubes of it so you never run out of it if it ends up discontinued. I might just have to do that with this lipstick. I love it so much.
