Makeup Declutter Series Part 1: Lipsticks, Blushes, Primers & Setting Sprays



Hello party people! Welcome to one of my most highly requested posts, ever! As many of you know I have recently begun my journey to transitioning to cruelty-free beauty. The decision to go cruelty-free brought with it an instant desire to both declutter, as well as take all the items out of my collection that weren't cruelty-free to sell, donate, give away, or bin if they were quite old. Everyone goes about this differently but I just figured that if I was going to be serious about the change, I would like to start discovering products already within my collection that were cruelty-free and put some of the earnings from makeup I sold, towards new cruelty-free makeup items from brands I may not have tried before. Today I'm showing you how I decluttered my makeup and what my collection looks like now! I have broken this series into 4 parts since there are quite a few photos of each of my drawers, some which include skincare. Today I'm showing you my lipsticks, blushes, primers and setting sprays!


Everyday Makeup Look: Office Friendly (Cruelty-Free)



Today's post is something a little different for you all. I decided I wanted to create a little tutorial for a simple everyday look that is office friendly. If any of you are like me and work in an office, it's hard to know how to look glam without feeling like you are overdoing it, and also wanting to wear some makeup so you aren't bare-faced. I think I have found a happy medium so I thought I would share some of my everyday essentials over the past month or so. I hope you enjoy this post! It has been a while since I've done a tutorial but you can find some more here.


Beauty Bin: January-June Empties 2017


Wow! I didn't realise how long it was since I last did an empties post, but by the look of the overflowing basket I had in my beauty room, I knew it had been a hot minute! You can read my last empties post here. Usually for these posts, I give you a brief description of each product and whether or not I would purchase it again. For this post it will be super brief since I have so many products to get through!!! Please keep in mind most of these empties are from before my cruelty-free transition so a lot of the brands are unfortunately not cruelty-free and therefore I won't be repurchasing!


June + July Raves and Rejects




So it's been a hot minute since I've done a Raves and Rejects post! If you'd like to read my March Raves and Rejects, just click here. You can also read past Monthly Favourites Posts here. Over the past few months, I've been trying out heaps of new products and have found some new favourites along with others that just didn't work for me.
