Skin Care Routine

My Skin care routine 

Skin care is a very personal thing! It is also what I believe to be the most important step to having flawless makeup. Its amazing how much your skin can change from day to day or even year to year. Your skin can be impacted on what you eat, how much sun you get, wether you took your makeup off last night before bed, how much sleep you got and the most common one we know effects the skin the most, DRINKING WATER .

Knowing all of this I still struggle day to day avoiding/ completing some of these steps. I no I should drink more water but that is something I definitely struggle with, also getting enough vitamin D has been challenging. One thing I thought I was on top of was my skin car routine. UNTIL I went for a microdermabrasion and was shocked with what my beautician had to say. I have been unhappy with my skin for a long time so my girlfriends got the microdermabrasion package for my birthday and it was life changing. I have noticed the biggest difference since going. I have large pores that I have fort with for over 10 years now and thought I was doing he right steps to clean them out…. I was wrong! 

I went to EllaBache hear in Perth for my consolation, she studied my skin and the results she had found where mind blowing for me. The one I was shocked about the most was the amount of dead skin I had. This shocked me because i religiously use face masks and exfoliation treatments that I thought were helping my skin. The second was that I was very dry in some areas however very oily in others. I had always been told my skin was oily hence always being creams for oily skin. She did say its hard to treat my new found skin problems because its almost like I need to different moisturisers one for the dry and one of the oily. Third was that my skin was very rough this was a light bold moment for me I had always know this however didn’t know how to explain it. She hit the nail on the head with that one. 

Since going to 2 treatments my skin has changed. I have updated my products and have honestly noticed a massive difference. It is so simple my routine now and my skin feels so beautiful afterwards. I was telling my beautician that sometime I would do a mask and a cleanse and still feel bums and gunk on my face. This was because the products I was using were just cleaning the top layers of my skin and not penetrating down into my new skin. I was effectively just cleaning my dead skin. Let me just add my skin care wasn’t just drug store some of it I had invested in and cost me a lot of money. 






I now have a three step process without all this fuss and all creams no harsh beads ect and I could not be happier and have now referred friends there. 

One thing I have learnt is that ur skin is an organ it is constantly changing and we need to look after it.

ELF vs NARS

I have always wanted to do one of these on my blog so when I saw that Elf had come out with a perfect dupe for the Nars duo in Laguna and Orgasim I thought it would be perfect for my first one.

Obviosuly from the brands there is a very big price difference between the two. My overall opinion is that the Elf blush and bronzer is just as good as the Nars so if you can not afford to try out the Nars please dont miss out and try the Elf.


Left is Elf Right is Nars 




The bronzers are nearly assact. I cant even tell the difference of which one I prefer. The colours are almost the same the texture and the way it looks on my skin is flawless with both. The only little difference is that I think the Nars one does stay on my skin a little longer.

With the blushes the organisgm is a little deeper in colour but there is not to much of a difference. On this skin they both look incrediable applying the most perfect blushy pink colour. Both blushes are super pigmented and apply beautifully on the skin. Again like the bronzer if we are getting really picky the Nars one stays on longer than the Elf. The blush from Elf also has a little more glitter in it so if this isnt your thing than go with Nars

I find myself using the elf one on a daily basis, especially the bronzer, with a price point of under $15.00 it doesnt matter if you go through it.

If you are picticular with packaging like I am I bet your thinking that the Elf wouldn't be as nice! But in fact there are both the same in my opinion.

Overall if your on a price crunch than defitiley try out the Elf one but if you like to splurge on a quality product than the Nars is for you!

Lets Talk Hair Extensions!


Hi everyone, Yes I am back! I can not wait to re launch Style Couture Beauty with you all soon. I have some exciting things coming your way so please stay tuned, not only on here but on my Youtube channel and on my Instagram. But enough about that onto todays topic.....



Hair extensions!








For a self anounced "girly girly" you would assume this would be a staple in my beauty room! But infact until this past weekend I have never used/ owned hair extensions before, so you can guess my excitment when I got the opportunity to work with an amazing company and try them out for myself.
I was kindly sent some hair extensions by Irresitable Me! This was such an exciting process. I jumped on there website and imediantly starting researching the different types, lenths and colours. I know this may seem like basic information for all my fellow hair extension wearing ladies but for me I was so suprised at the sellection process. I watched a colour selecting video which made the process really easy. I am so happy with the colour I picked which was Chocolate Brown to say it is an exact match would be an understatment. The length( 24 inches) and weight were also beyond perfect. When curling my hair last night I found it hard to distinguish what was my hair and what was the hair extension. In my mind I always thought hair extension would be wirey and not natural looking however these Iresitable Me extensions blended perfectly with my hair I could defintily feel the quality of this product. As I am a newby to hair extension I was a little scared about putting them in and also styling them, however when sitting down on saturday night to do my hair it was suprisigly easy. When using my favourite curling iron, the curl turned out exactly how it would in my natural hair and infact the curl stayed in longer.
