Before and After Makeup

I'm going to start doing some Before and After makeup on some friends/model/clients and will be sharing them on my blog.

Last weekend I caught up with a wonderful friend of mine.  She had finally passed her last CA exam!  Congratulations to my lovely friend Astrid.  Well done!

I bought dinner from a trusty Malaysian hawkers on my way to her house with my loaded ready to give her a makeover and my DSLR with a Speedlight attached ready to capture the difference.

The following products were used:

MAC Face and body Foundation
Eve Pearl Cream Foundation (as a concealer)
Napoleon Perdis Translucent powder
Napoleon Perdis Eyeshadow - Trenchcoat (Contour shade)
Napoleon Perdis Eyeshadow - Skinny Dip (Highlight shade)
Smashbox blush
Eyeko Mascara
Inglot Brow Powder
Eve Pearl Lipgloss

Melbourne Easter Break.

 Over Easter break I treat myself to a 4 nights trip to Melbourne.  Somewhere close yet a good place to get away from all that working I've been doing.

I didn't shop as crazy as I normally would, but I didn't really find much I like and I spent more money stocking up my professional kit than on myself.  Anyway a friend and I who is also called "Mandy", my partner in crime when it comes to shopping and eating, flew off on Good Friday night and arrived super early on Saturday morning (Melbourne is 3 hours faster than Perth).  Being super early we had to wait to check in so we dumped our bags and walked around in the dark early morning.  I know crazy.  Nothing was even opened but we were looking around and familiarizing ourselves with the streets so we knew how to find places easier.

First stop on the first day... met up with my highschool friend who had just moved over at the beginning of March and ate breakfast at one of Melbourne's top cafe and still number one on Urbanspoon.  It was delicious!  I had baked eggs with Chorizo and it was so good I ate the whole thing.  People line up for ages sometimes just waiting for a table, but being super early we got there as soon as it opened.

Back to Reality...

I had a wonderful Easter Break where a girlfriend and I took a 5 days, 4 nights trip to Melbourne.  We were both tired and just wanted to get away from work for the long weekend and a bit more.  I had thoroughly enjoyed the trip and even though I miss it greatly, it is back to reality.

Here is a quick update of what had been happening since I've gotten home from my little vacation.  Stay tuned for a future post on my Melbourne trip.  I promise you it includes some food porn and crazy shopping purchases!

Belated Birthday Present from my cousin.  Absolutely loving this Palette by Stila and had been using it in the morning.
