A Date With Heartbreak





I apologise for being so neglectful. Here, on my way to work I'm wearing: Thoimay silk top with sheer sleeves, Witchery skirt and sandals, Sportsgirl bag and Cue belt.

I'm going to do as no other blogger I've known has done and take you into my little, humble bathroom for a beauty post...




Here it is! There are lotions and potions spilling everywhere. (Wearing Country Road T-Bar platforms I scored for $74.99 on Boxing Day, but changed my shoes at the last minute).



Despite all that I've tried, I find the simplest works best. Life's full of complicated things, why on earth would you want to make it more complicated than necessary?

I am shamefully lazy (I could place a full stop here) when it comes to beauty routines. I've managed to keep it down to the bare minimum:



I like the tinted dermalogica ultra sensitive skin faceblock, but after cleansing I find my face needs a little extra moisture, so I blend in some Hamilton "Everyday face" tinted moisturising cream. And voila! Blemishes and discolourations are airbrushed out.



Afterwards, a super quick dusting of Napoleon powder foundation and Estee Lauder's powder blush in Nude Rose (which has won numerous beauty awards and once you start using it, it's easy to see why).



A lick of Maybelline's absurdly named 'COLOSSAL Volum EXPRESS' mascara. No clumping, no waiting between coats, safe for contact-lens-wearers and the result is statement feathery lashes!



Finally, a dab of rosy gloss: I really love L'Occitane's moisturising and un-sticky Cherry Blossom Gloss (smells lovely and non-chemically).

Don't you adore the case this 'A Date with Heartbreak' Blushing Rose lip balm comes in? I haven't tried it yet, so I wouldn't know how useful it is! (I can see P Diddy rolling his eyes at me.)

And you're out the door in 3 minutes.
