Beauty Duty - Eyes

It certainly wouldn't be my deepest darkest confession to admit that I love makeup, so it should come as no surprise that I have a decent stash in my bedroom drawers. And while some items might seem similar, or even duplicates, each has it's own purpose.

This principle applies to all my beauty products too, as my bathroom drawers are almost as full as my make up ones! As such, I thought it an opportune time to share some of my good finds over the years in Beauty Duty!

Femme Fatale - Jessica Alba

Femme Fatale - Jessica Alba

She's beautiful, down-to-earth, and seemingly has it all with a successful acting career, her own natural product company, hot hubby and two adorable children. She's Jessica Alba, and she's also my number one girl crush.

Normally when people tick so many boxes, we look upon them with resentment but with Jess (can I call her that?) it's hard to feel anything but admiration as she seems to radiate niceness! She quite possibly could be the very definition of the Femme Fatale.

Sense of Beauty - Gorgeous Gaps

Sense of Beauty - Gorgeous Gaps

Everyday, whether intentionally or not, we scrutinise others in some form or another. Furthermore, we are often even prompted to do so through the proliferation of magazines that constantly criticise how celebrities look, how much they weigh or what's happening in their personal lives. Yes, arguably for public figures it comes with the territory, the unfortunate downside of the fame game, and while most of us are all probably guilty of indulging in the latest fat-snap bikini shots or plastic surgery horrors, we shouldn't endorse this negativity - even though I realise that by purchasing those mag's, we are unintentionally doing so. Thus, what is the answer?

Wardrobe Weapon - Colour Me Confident

I have said it before and I'll say it again, I don't just wear make up to try and make myself look better; though admittedly on those days where I have indulged in one too many glasses of pinot the night before, it sure does help minimise the evidence. No, to me make up is just as much about how you feel as how you look.

Fake or Faux Pas

The 21st Century has seen pressures on the beauty and fashion industry to adopt a more 'natural' looking beauty. There is a line beginning to form, woman are being criticised for being too 'fake' and masking our real selves. Is fake merely enhancing our natural beauty, or is fake a big faux pas?
