New Makeup Brushes. Take your application to the next level by upgrading your equipment with some new makeup brushes. This six piece travel kit by Beginning Boutique recently came into my possession and I am in love! The bristles are so soft against my skin, while the black and rose gold hardware make these a stylish buy!

Colour Pop Liquid Lipstick. Stila delivering the goods with this flawless Stay All Day formula, and in a wicked neon shade no less. This one’s a no brainer for those that love a statement lip and an easy application.

Bronzing Powder. Add that summertime shimmer to your complexion with the help of a bronzing powder, like this Napoleon Perdis must-have. What I love most about this product is the build-able colour and radiant finish. Not to mention, how darling is this mosaic pattern?

Liquid Eyeliner. For the most precise cat eye, I recommend the Sephora Fingertip Liner. Just as it’s name suggests, this baby slides onto your finger to allow for the most controlled application. Did someone say #gamechanger?

Rosey Lip Stain. Because nothing says spring beauty like a soft and feminine shade of pink. Otherwise the perfect shade for brunch with the girls, this Sephora gem offers a rich hue and hydrating finish. What more could you want in a lip stain?

On The Beauty Table with Napoleon Perdis

Who said winter has to involve a darker colour palette? This season calls for blush, bronze and a hint of pink! Introducing the newest products to hit my beauty table, featuring my favourite beauty brand, Napoleon Perdis.

Nothing emphasises a pair of peepers like a richly, pigmented eyeshadow, and the Napoleon Perdis Colour Disc in Amazon Jungle is my weapon of choice this season. I apply this pinky-tan hue as a base colour to my eyelids, and blend with a light sprinkling of the Napoleon Perdis Loose Eye Dust in Golden Peach, for a warm, dusty pink glow.

Of course a little shimmer goes a long way, so I recommend adding a metallic white shimmer to your kit, like the Napoleon Perdis Loose Eye Dust in Ice Storm. I add a light dusting of this powder to the inner corners of my eyes to create the illusion of bigger, bolder peepers, and underneath my brow bone for extra dimension.


I’m keeping my brow game strong with the Napoleon Perdis Couture Brow Kit. This handy little kit comes with all the essential tools to maintain a perfect arched shape with mini tweezers, a double ended brow brush, stencils and a compact mirror. Equipped with two different shades to create dimension throughout the brow, the velvety powders allow for an effortless and consistent application. A final disc of clear brow wax helps to tame any stray hairs, and keep your brows on fleek for longer.


It may be winter, but I’m keeping a healthy bronze glow about my cheeks with the Napoleon Perdis Mosaic Powder in Bronzing. Aside from looking beautiful on my beauty table, the mosaic pattern blends seamlessly together to create glowing cheeks and sculpted contouring. Now to get my hands on the other two colours available in this palette, Blushing and Flushing!


While nude and berry lips are on constant rotation, I’m still coveting pink pouts! The Napoleon Perdis Divine Goddess Lipstick in Nymphe has a beautiful rose pink base that adds a youthful pop of pink to your beauty game. Enriched with herbal extracts and antioxidants, this lipstick series will leave your pout feeling supple and plump with a highly pigmented, satin finish.

For those that love a more glossy finish, I suggest slicking the Napoleon Perdis Silk Road Lip Rouge in Pink Empress across your lips, for extreme colour and shine.

For the perfect pink-tan: Love her or hate her, Kylie Jenner has been slayin’ the pink-tan pout for a while now, and moving into the AW season you’ll never find a better everyday neutral. I adore the lush matte finish and long lasting wear of Napoleon Perdis Mattetastic Lipstick in Lauren.

For the perfect beige-cream: Proving that bare doesn’t have to be boring, a creamsical lip creates a fresh, natural statement, teamed beautifully with a bronzed glow or a dramatic smokey eye. The Napoleon Perdis Divine Goddess Lipstick in Gamelia has a beautiful satin finish and hydrating formula that will keep your lips supple, plump and oh so kissable.

For the perfect rose-pink: A dusty rose is a darling choice for those that love a glam, girly pout. Best teamed with a flushed cheek and wispy lashes, a rose-pink lip creates a youthful and feminine statement. If you haven’t already added the Napoleon Perdis Goddess Lipstick in Nymphe to your shopping cart, then you best do so now so that it arrives in time for Saturday brunch with the girls.

For the perfect blush-nude: Soft, subtle and sophisticated, a blush nude lipstick features a balanced combination of rose, nude and creamy tones. This hue is particularly flattering on fairer complexions, and is best teamed with a dynamic rose gold shimmer on the eyes. I love Napoleon Perdis Goddess Lipstick in Athena.

For the perfect pink lacquer: If you love delicious summery colours, and emphasising your natural beauty, then a pink lip lacquer is the perfect addition to your makeup stash. The Napoleon Perdis Silk Road Lip Rogue in Pink Empress features a highly pigmented hue and a luxe, shiny finish, perfect for a night out with the gals!

What’s your favourite out of these five? Are you more of a classic neutral, or a pop of pink lip kind of gal? I’de love to hear your signature pout in the comments below!

The Necessities: Moisturiser, Concealer & Coverage

I don’t need to point out that the change of season brings about changes to your skin, but I will remind you ladies that now is the time to add a little more hydration to your beauty routine. Cue, a moisturising mist! I’m particularly loving the Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Moisture Mist, as it helps to sooth the skin and boost moisture levels with Sodium Hyaluronate and Aloe Vera extract.

Prone to dark under eye circles or the occasional spot? Me too! But I’m concealing my late night eyes and hormonal pimples with Napoleon Perdis The One Concealer in Light, as it provides long lasting coverage and reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Of course, a powder to set your base is a MUST in the colder months, and I swear by the Napoleon Perdis Camera Finish Powder with its silky, matte finish.

The Dimension: Highlighter, Contour & Eyeshadow

I might be a little late to the party, but I’ve just realised how important an illuminator is to your beauty routine, as it emphasises dimension by highlighting the high points of the face, and creates a healthy, youthful glow.  I love the low-maintenance, speedy application of the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight, with it’s shimmery, oil free finish.

To create Kardashian inspired sculpted cheekbones, I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Contour Kit with it’s three natural contour powders and three highlighting powders.

The Colour: Eyeshadow & Lips

Say hello to earthy colours and smokey neutral eyes, as part of Autumn’s colour palette. This gorgeous five swatch Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette is my weapon of choice this season, helping me to create statement worthy peepers, using rich, decadent colours – the chocolate for your eyes. As for the lips, keep them glossy and delicious with a deep berry tone, like this Mecca Cosmetica Tined Lip Stain (similar style here).
