Summer is here. I know for all of you who don’t live in Queensland you are actually having a spring, but for us, summer will be here in no time! And for us northerners we all know what that means. 36 degree heat with 80% humidity – IN THE SHADE!!! Queensland summers are brutal. And trying to look cool and pulled together in the searing, sultry heat is near impossible! My approach is the less-is-more one. If there is one thing I cannot stand it’s that cake-face, heavy and usually not the correct shade of foundation that is literally stuccoed onto a pretty girl’s face. Why would you do that to yourself? Makeup should never be used to mask the real you. Easy on the foundation, eyeliner, lipstick, ladies. Let the real you shine! With this in mind, these are my go-to basics that I use everyday and offer a little bit of help to make me look better, enhanced. I am especially in love with OPI’s Crystal Nail File – this thing is amazing! For someone who has the weakest nails in the world – this file is my saviour. Get yourself one today!
