Sleeping tips, night-time routine.

After having a child, I've noticed the dramatic effect not having a regular routine has on her. Which makes me think it's important we address our routine to ensure a good night's sleep. Most of us know that eight is the magic number of hours the typical adult needs to sleep each night, but sometimes with the best intentions of an early night it's hard to get to sleep; I'm hoping these tips will help you. I understand that factors beyond our control can mess it up, my girl is two years old, lol.
3-4 hours before bed


tea

Limit or avoid caffeine (coffee, tea, fizzy drinks, chocolate) I'm not the best at this as I love a cup of tea and some chocolate.
Avoid naps, you should limit naps to 10-30 minutes and try to take them in the afternoon, if you're lucky enough to get the opportunity.
Limit alcohol consumption, it sometimes sends us to sleep but it's usually disturbed.

1-2 hours before bed

Cut out too much fluids (if you're like me, it makes you need to get up in the night to use the toilet)
Try not to snack or eat.
Turn off phone, computer, iPads etc, the light simulates day light which wakes us up. If you're a bit addicted to being on your phone as I am, oops, some Iphones have a night shift option that automatically turns on warm low light at the time you want. Go to settings - display & brightnes - Night shift.

 

 


 

Here's some suggestions for a routine-

Brush your teeth
Remove your makeup
Have a warm bath
Read
Write your thoughts; if your mind turns to worries at night, keep a notepad by your bedside. When worries come to mind, write them down and address them in the morning.
Stretch
Listen to relaxing music
Talk to your loved ones
Pack the next day’s lunch
Pick out your work clothes
Count your blessings
Write your accomplishments of the day
Try going to bed around the same time every night

MAC makeup product review powder highlighter

image

I purchased this MAC limited edition highlighter when replenishing my kit. Its called Perfect Topping, Its a powder with frost metallic finish. Smoothes on adding buffed-up highlights to cheeks & eyes, ultra-deluxe polish to the face
Here's a swatch, I tried it on myself then a few of my clients and I love it, give a beautiful sheen.

The MAC artist recommend using it wet , if you do this I suggest to carefully scrape a bit out then mix it with MAC fix + for a creamy wet highlight.

You can order it from MAC Cosmetics

Naked eyeshadow palette by urban decay. I'm sure you've all heard about this palette but if not, it has 12 eyeshadow shades from champagne highlighters, bronze sun-kissed to smokey, that are easy to wear and suits most people. It has a mixture of matte and metallic textures.

Makeup gift idea

MAC cosmetics viva glam gift

 

MAC VIVA GLAM lip sets are always a winner in my mind as the full R.R.P of the sale goes towards helping women, men and children everywhere affected by HIV/AIDS.
This year is featuring Rihanna’s red and metallic mauve VIVA GLAM Lipsticks, paired with this season’s limited-edition glittering red Viva Glamorous Bag. Or there are six of the most iconic VIVA GLAM shades together in a new Viva Glamorous Lip Palette.

Fisher price jumperoo

 

Fisher price jumperoo is probably the best thing I ever purchased for Lailu, not only has it given her hours of bouncy fun, it also gives me a chance to get ready, especially when she was about 5 months old and couldn't sit up without me holding her.

World Aids Day, MAC Viva Glam makeup

 

 

MAC VIVA GLAM MAKEUP. MAKEUP ARTIST NAOMI MCKEEVER

Photo of me for MAC Viva Glam World AIDS Day. MAKEUP ARTIST NAOMI MCKEEVER

 

December the 1st is World AIDS Day.

Here's what the official world aids day website says.
'What is World AIDS Day?
World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year and is an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, show their support for people living with HIV and to commemorate people who have died. World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day and the first one was held in 1988.'

I first became aware of this day about 9 years ago when working for MAC cosmetics. MAC donates 100% of the money raised from the Viva Glam  lipsticks. They use the proceeds to help men, women and children affected by aids.

 

The photos I have included in this post are from when I used to work for MAC Bath back in the day. These were taken on World AIDS Day years ago.

 

Eyes:

  • Mylar, Crystal Avalanche, (Highlight)
  • Gleam, Malt (Eyelid)
  • Sketch, Handwritten- eye shadows (bellow bottom lash line)
  • Chromagraphic eye pencil (water line)
  • false lash mascara
  • No.44 lashes

Great Gatsby Fashion, makeup and interior inspiration.

I'm a huge fan of director Baz Luhrmann, with his previous films being Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and Australia! He always seem to combine an incredible combination of stunning visuals, music and fashion, so I knew I was in for a bit of a treat when I heard his new film was The Great Gatsby.  I love 1920s makeup, art deco design and fashion, my only wish is that I was part of the makeup team for the film!

I was watching the extras on the DVD and they spoke about some of the exciting collaborations they had to capture the decadence of the roaring 20s. Miuccia Prada was one of the masterminds behind the costumes, along with Miu Miu. They also worked with Tiffanys for the jewellery, creating some of the pieces from their original archives.

The makeup credits go to MAC and the film’s makeup designer Maurizio Silvi.

Here's what Silvi had to say on the makeup:

“Baz Luhrmann approaches directing his films like a painter, giving strong priority to the looks of each character. In his mind, makeup is one of the key elements used to depict love, struggle, pain and romance”

“When we started preparing for the film, my department and I had to choose which products to use for the two main parties: What we referred to as the Glam party and the Sad and Tawdry party.” In creating The Great Gatsby‘s cinematic look, Silvi employed these four key elements:

1. Foundation

“We based each character’s makeup looks around their costume and hair colour. For lighter skin shades we used Studio Fix Fluid SPF 15 in shades such as NW15 and NC20. For darker skin shades we used Matchmaster SPF 15 in shades such as 8 and 9.”

Here is a list of the products I used on a fashion shoot for 'Photography magazine'. Even though you wouldn't want to cover yourself in oil and water for a every day look, the water resistant products used are still great for long wearing or holiday makeup.
