birthday girl.. soon (:

Hey girls, so since my birthday is coming up in a week I have put together a little wishlist and obviously I'm not guaranteed these but they are just some products I'd like to own, and my mum reads my blog which I think is sweet and kinda creepy (sorry) but yea so hope you enjoy.
For a person who straightens their hair alo the ghd is the way to go, my mum has one but shes really protective over it, I was kinda between my trusted ghd and those new cloud 9 straightners that bloggers and magazing have been gushing about but when I saw these a couple weeks ago the colours mad me go woah. I especially love the green one but I don't know, so tell me what colour you like best because they're all beautiful (:

dkny be delicious is my all time holy grail perfume which got lost in the move to my new house but instead of re-purchasing it I adventured into other perfumes but always come out of the store with this sprayed all over me because it smells so freaking good.
Wanted this lipstick since forever, it's a beautiful colour and I've applied it in MAC so many times and can be on subtly and look nice and natural and for night layer it on. I'm loving bubblegum pink lipstick and it's something about lady gaga and supporting aids that really makes me love this lipstick
Although everything is nice on my list the thing I want the most is to pass my learners, I'm studying my road code really hard and I am excited about learning to drive,

2. next using a concealer brush and MAC concealer cover any acne spots or uneven skintones
3. using MAC 150 brush MAC mineralze skinfinish natural all over face and down neck
4. using the bronzer side of the bronzer/blush pallette contour face then using a stippling brush put MAC pinch'o'peach blush on apples of cheeks and blend back.
5. then using a tapered crease brush apply MAC carbon all along the top lash line lightly and then on the outer 1/4 of your lid make it darker, (optional for night) then lightly on 3/4 of the bottom lash line and again darker on the outer 1/4
6. apply estee lauder lengthening to top and bottom lashes and then covergirl lashblast on the top lashes and another coat of estee lauder on the bottom

TAG: what would you rather? (beauty edition)

1.Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

For this I really don't know. I mean naturally I do messy hair as in like messy loose hair but I'm not sure if that counts. And lately I haven't been wearing make-up due to my skin flipping out of me. So I really have no idea, I guess nice hair and no make-up, uh idk.
2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?
Well eyebrows really like make a difference, alot of difference, people without them look kinda freaky like this guy in year 6 shaved his off and he looked so weird. I guess eyelashes because it would be annoying but you could apply false eyelashes so itd be all good. Or I've heard of tattooing eyeliner and eyebrows. Nah scratch that no eyelashes

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?
Since I live in New Zealand and theres only a MAC and no sephora I would say sephora because I know there is a tone of variety of brands there and like hair products that MAC doesn't have but then I really do love MAC. I really suck at this tag.
4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80's perm?
haha my mum had a perm when she was little and I have pictures, she looked like a poodle head. But probably the lipgloss/liner look, don't kill me but I actually kind of like it. And since I have curly-ish hair already that I straighten everyday to control. Yea definately lipgloss/lipliner look.

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obivious foundation line or overdone blush?
Alot of girls have obvious foundation lines but mostly because their foundation isn't matched up properly which I always have to have the right foundation match. Overdone blush isn't that much of a crime, I love blush and you can get rid of it easier, plus the pinker the rosier and healthier you look.

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?
eww if these are the same biker shorts I know, no way biker shorts. MC hammer pants are like those harem pants right? they are in style I'm pretty sure, they look cute. I do very much like MC hammer pants.

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can't be covered?
orange spray tans are disgusting, weird tan lines are fine, I don't have a problem with tan lines.

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?
since I've never really coloured my hair I guess I would say colour because you can fix colour but for haircut you have to let it grow out.
9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?
twitter, I used to use twitter alot but then I stopped and I don't have videos on youtube but I do watch youtube beauty videos and funny videos. So twitter for sure.

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?
Since I apply most of my make-up with my fingers anyway I would say I would give up make-up brushes. I use mascara all the time, It's an instant pick-me-up along with blush.

buy or bye? (: modelco fluidsplash

ModelCo fluidsplash 3 in 1 foundation is an oil-free 50% water light coverage liquid foundation with a top that flips open revealing a concealer that can also be used as an eye primer. ModelCo is a much loved australian company that I may do a post about a little later because there stuff is expensive but their packaging is the cutest. ModelCo don't specialise in foundations, they are more known for their self tanning range which is awesome and their fibre lash which again is pretty awesome. It comes in eight different shades. I keep searching for foundations all the time but I want to make sure they are oil-free and good for your skin because as you've seen in my former post my skin isn't being my friend right not. So I need your advice, should I buy or just I just leave it as a fantasy?
