Style Paws What's In My Beauty Bag

One of my favourite types of blog posts is always having a good snoop into what other girls use in their beauty routines, so I thought I’d share a few of my every day must-have favourites. Working in the beauty retail industry, this is definitely not everything I own – by a long shot – but it does pretty much cover my average routine.

Plus, thanks to my friends at Suvana Organic, I have a little giveaway for you guys!

  1. Beauty Bag – Seed Heritage: I can’t go past a bit of leopard print, especially this washed-out ‘just off to the Hamptons’ type.
  2. Necklace – Sportsgirl: It’s new (got it in their mid-year sale for $9.95), so just thought I’d throw that in.
  3. Perfume – Chanel’s “Coco Madamoiselle”: I am beyond obsessed with this fragrance and have at least 4 bottles in use right now. I am thinking of adding Coco Noir to my collection next.
  4. Nail Polishes – Chanel: Two of my favourite colours, a dark khaki and a blush pink, these will always be classics.
  5. Illuminator – YSL’s “Touche Eclat”: Not so much an illuminator as it is a miracle worker. It just always makes your eyes and cheekbones look better, I once heard a quote from a makeup artist who said “I’ve never met a woman who doesn’t look better thanks to touche eclat.”
  6. Moisturiser – Kiehl’s “Ultra Facial Cream”: I can honestly say I’ve never found a better moisturiser, your skin instantly feels hydrated. I recently had a skin analysis done and turns out I need even more moisture, so I am going to be switching to their Ultra Hydration Cream next.
  7. Gel Eyeliner – Maybelline’s “Eye Studio”: I’ve tried a million eyeliners (pencil, gel and liquid) but this is the one I love most. It comes with a brush that allows me to control the application easily and layer it on pretty thick. Plus this shit won’t budge until you want it to.
  8. Foundation – Maybelline’s “Fit Me: I am going through a “matte” phase and this foundation has a great shine-free finish.
  9. Lipstick – MAC’s “Fresh Brew”: My favourite lipsticks are by MAC because the colour range and quality is next-level.
  10. Primer – L’Oreal Paris’ “Base Magique”: If you don’t wear a primer already, now is the time to start. It makes your makeup application last a thousand times longer and not get oily or fall.
  11. Blush – Clinique: I like this one as it provides just a hint of a rosy cheek.
  12. Paw Paw – Suvana Organic’s “Paw Paw & Honey Balm”: Paw paw balms are a dime a dozen these days but you have to be careful as there are so many out there with nasty additives, which is why I am obsessed with Suvana Organic’s all-natural option. It feels and smells wonderful.
  13. Hand cream – Aurora Spa’s “Rose & Shea Butter Hand & Cuticle Cream”: You know you’re getting old when you start needing hand cream. This one actually smells incredible and feels so nourishing. I apply it every night before bed.

Giveaway Time!

Thanks to the lovely folk at Suvana Organic, I have five samples of their delicious Paw Paw & Honey Balm to give out to you guys. Seriously, it’s kind of changed my life and I know you will find it to be the best in the market too.

To enter, simply leave a comment on this post telling me why I should pick you. Plus, don’t forget to leave your name and e-mail address so I can get in touch if you win. I’ll select the winners on the 7th of June.

Good luck!

    You should pick me because my bathroom is so crowded thanks to my beauty obsession that when my partner’s friend came over he said, “You could start a chemical lab in here!” And I’d just had a massive clean out!

    You should pick me because winter makes my lips a barren wasteland of gross peeling skin.

    I want it to change my life too – by giving me soft kissable lips ;)

    Who doesn’t need leopard print! I’m a jewellery student in need of an Autumn/winter spruce up!

    INDI!! That’s all I came to say.

    Pick me cuz I’ve got places to be and people to smooch and I take it all very seriously!

    I have yet to jump on the metaphorical paw paw bandwagon, and many a time I have been told that I am ‘totally missing out!’. The idea of having honey in balm that is equally as soothing and more natural than a lot of the alternatives is also very exciting. Would <3 to try this lip balm, pretty please! :)

    I have never tried any of the above, but maybe something similar to it. I love to try before I buy … but I am and have a huge love for beauty products. I would love for you to pick me for this reason. –

    Pick me! because yellow’s my favourite colour lol but seriously because my lips are so chapped and are desperate to find a good lip product to help soothe and patch it up and everything else is too expensive :<

    You should pick me because I am nice, and good, and kind …… and yep, that’s it!

  • Reply Cassandra June 7, 2014 at 2:08 pm

    I would love to win because i have really dry lips, and this would be a life saver! I would be soo excited to try a new product I’ve never tried, and something all natural:) Always looking for new things to try, and winning it would be a bonus! Thanks!
