And the 2014 Oscars Best Dressed Award goes to..

Awards season is the most exciting time for me! I don’t care about the nominees or the winners, all I care about is who wore what and how they wore it! So as soon as I managed to drag myself out of bed this morning, I scrolled through Google Images looking for all of the stunning red carpet looks.

I’ve finally chosen the 3 celebs, that in my opinion, were the best dressed last night. All of these celebs went for the less is more approach-there were no heavily beaded dresses, excessive trails or over-accessorizing crimes committed, thank God! It was just simple and tasteful like it should be.

So without further adieu, here are my best dressed picks, in order of uuuhmazingness:

1. Kate Hudson

Hello there, I’m back!

0000

 

Hi guys! I’m back! I’ve been so busy preparing for my cousin’s wedding, my trip to Cape Town and for my final year at university that I didn’t get a chance to upload any new posts. But never fear, I’m here now and I’m here to stay!

 

I’ve got some fantastic ideas for my upcoming blog posts, so remember to watch this space every week for fresh new posts.

 

Hope you enjoy them!

Can’t wait for Catrice Cosmetics new Limited Edition ‘It Pieces’ to hit SA stores!!

The new Limited Edition ‘It Pieces’  from Catrice Cosmetics is set to hit South African stores in mid Jan next year, and I cannot wait for it to arrive! This particular limited edition will make a great addition to my makeup collection! The colours and shades that make up It Pieces are perfect for Spring/Summer and will add a great pop of colour to your outfit!

 

Such pretty colours <3

Such pretty colours ❤

 

Included in this LE is a single  eye shadow quattro, crushed crystal nail polishes in 3 colours, a defining blush and 2 lip colours – all of which look like they going to be amazing! However, I’m most excited about Sun Glow Shimmering Bronzing Powder and the Made To Stay Smoothing Lip Polish which is available in 3 shades.

 

The bronzing powder has a cool 3D embossed zig zag pattern which is supposed to allow for the 2 shades within the compact to blend well with each other and gives the skin a radiant summer glow. Most bronzers I’ve tried are very dark and make me look as if I’ve got dark patches everywhere, so I’m holding thumbs for this one!

 

Baked beauty!

The lip polishes have the colour of a lipstick, shine of a gloss and durability of a balm, 3 products in 1, now that’s what I’m talking about! I usually use my mood lipstick from Dischem as a base, follow up with Labello’s Fruity Shine and top off with my Smashbox lipgloss, so this product gets me really excited.  I’m hoping that the colour does last for the 8 hours that is promised on the packaging, and that the gloss lasts throughout the day. We can only hope for the best!

 

3 pretty colours!

3 pretty colours!

 

Plus, I know that even though im a budget I will defo be able to afford this LE, because all of Catrice Cosmetics’ products are very, very reasonably priced – not as cheap as Essence, but still very affordable!

 

Can’t wait for mid Jan!
