What I’ve Been Wearing: January

Hello lovelies,

If you’ve been following me on Instagram @rachelbeautystyle you would have noticed a few more fashion posts popping up. As I mentioned earlier in the year I wanted to spend more time on fashion, so with that in mind I’m thinking of starting a new series; What I’ve Been Wearing. Each month, I’ll recap some of my favourite outfits and will share where you can purchase the items yourself. Let me know your thoughts, do you like? Is there anything you want to know more about?

Outfit 1: 

  • Sunglasses- Quay Eyewear
  • Bikini- Atmos & Here
  • Cover up- From Vietnam, no label (but one of my favourite purchases)

Makeup of the Day: Highend Work Makeup

Hello beauties,

Last week I bought to you a drugstore work makeup look, and today it’s all about highend makeup! It’s also a bit of a first impressions as I tried out a lot of new products in this makeup look.

1. IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Illumination- Rich 

For this look I didn’t apply a primer first, however I typically use Benefit Porefessional. To apply the CC Cream I use a damp beauty blender to push the product in. Full review coming at the end of the week.

2. Cover FX Cover Click-N30*

I didn’t expect much from this, but OMG I’m in love with it. I used this as a concealer under my eyes to highlight and cover dark circles. I found the concealer to be surprisingly creamy but still set nicely.

3. Benefit Brow Zing- Medium

4. NARS Bronzer- Casino

5. Hourglass Ambient Blush-Radiant Magenta 

6. MAC Mineralize Skin Finish- Soft and Gentle

7. IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials*

For the eyes, I started off by applying the shade Passion all over the lid. In the crease I applied Intrigue and brought it down to the lash line in a V motion. I also used the remaining product on my lower lash line and smoked it out quite a bit. For some added definition I applied the shade Allure to my top last line using an angled brush. Allure is an interesting shade, it’s a dark matte navy blue however looks almost black on the eyes.

To finish off the eyes I applied the IT Cosmetics Super Hero* mascara, which was surprisingly good. The tip with this mascara is to make sure to apply most of it at the roots of the lashes.

Brand Focus: Marc Jacobs Beauty

Hello beauties,

I was first introduced to Marc Jacobs Beauty when I was in New York 2 years and had the amazing experience of checking out their stores on Bleaker Street! Their products are so beautiful but I’ve always been overwhelmed by the choice and if I’m honest the price as well… But lucky for me I was given the opportunity to trial a few things from the range, thanks to Sephora Australia the exclusive stockist of Marc Jacobs Beauty.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Le Marc Lip Créme Lipstick*

I received the most beautiful, perfect 90s lipstick in J Adore 230 from the Sephora Showcase. This is a creamy texture without being too slippy on the lips. The lipstick bullet shape is rounded as opposed to a point which makes it a little difficult to apply, so use a lip liner. Personally I love this colour, I think it’s the perfect nude on my skin but would also look gorgeous on fairer skin tones. Below I’m wearing the lipstick on my lips.
