My Personal Skin Care Routine

Posted April 18th, 2012 by pain with No Comments


I do get asked quite alot when i am out doing clients make up what beauty or make up products i use on myself, So i thought i would try and atleast address the skin care questions today as best as i can without it getting to long-winded. My personal make up routine and products can be for a later blog :)

Disclaimer: Please keep in mind before reading forward is that i have dry skin and this is what works for me, you may not so these products could do more damage than good to your skin. You should always consult your dermatologist before changing your skin care routine.

Ok.. When it comes to my personal skin care routine let’s just say i am very diligent!!!

1. Cleanse with Remy Laure Organic Vegetable Gentle Cleanser
2. Tone with Remy Laure DNA Tonic Lotion
3. Eyes with Biore Fortifying Eye Cream
4. Moisturise with a mix of Dermalogica Day & Night Skin Smoothing Cream
5. Lips with Blistex Lip Conditioner

{ My foundation already has more than enough SPF protection in it so i don’t add this to my skin care routine unless i am not wearing foundation that day }

1. Remove make up with make up remover pads and Redwin Sorbolene
2. Cleanse with Remy Laure Organic Vegetable Gentle Cleanser
3. Exfoliate with Remy Laure Exfoliating Scrub
4. Tone with Remy Laure DNA Tonic Lotion
5. Eyes with Biore Fortifying Eye Cream
6. Moisturise with Dermalogica Day & Night Skin Smoothing Cream
7. Lips with Blistex Lip Conditioner

1. Twice a week when i choose i follow up after exfoliating in the night time with Remy Laure Revitalising Mask and leave that on for 20min and gently remove with a wash cloth then continue on with the rest of my night time beauty routine.

1. After cleansing i do an at home microdermabrasion with 3tbsp of baking soda and 1tbsp of water mixing them well together and creating a paste like product, applying it to my face in circular motions and letting it sit for about 5-8 minutes and washing of with luke warm water and follow it up with my revitalising face mask. A well known model here in australia once taught me this trick.. It really works and i haven’t looked back since trying it!

So that basically wraps it up ladies, please don’t get me wrong i am not in anyway saying that my skin is perfect but i hardly ever get breakouts and when i do its normally around that time of the month ;) But this routine hasn’t failed me yet and i always get glowing results when sticking to it. I’ll be sure to post a blog soon answering what makeup products i use etc.

HOW TO: Elegant Fishtail Braided Bridal, Formal Up-style

Posted April 17th, 2012 by pain with No Comments


Being a Makeup artist and Hair stylist here in Sydney i see alot of women wanting the same hair styles and makeup styles alot! But don’t get me wrong i certainly didn’t have an experimental personality before gaining experience in the beauty industry. Whilst i do love re-creating past bridal and formal looks in my portfolio, i do like venturing out and trying makeup and hair styles that are a little different than what i do normally get to do. One thing im sure alot of you can appreciate is that the beauty, bridal hair and makeup industry along with alot of other professions is ” Time Management ” So can you imagine my surprise when i saw this beautiful bridal upstyle
that takes literally no time at all and the finished result is sooo beautiful and i love how elegantly simple this hair style is! Try it out ;)


How to re-create the look

1. Prepare hair by using a little bit of smoothing serum to tame fly aways and brush well.
2. Separate hair into two sections.
3. Start from the top of both sections and work you way down doing the fishtail method of hair braiding.
( As you go along make sure you pull little sections of hair and loosen the braid slightly ei. picture. )
4. Secure each braid tightly with a clear elastic band.
5. Twist the braids around into a semi circle twist and secure with bobby pins that suit your hair colour.
6. Set with some hair spray
7. Add some flowers or jewelled hair pins if you like.

Don’t you just love it.. teehee ;)

Temporary Fix For Bright Coloured Hair Extensions

Posted April 12th, 2012 by pain with No Comments


I get alot of questions about coloured hair extensions mainly because women are scared to either dye their own hair or spend alot of money just to get a few coloured hair extension strands put in only to have them removed to be able to go back to work again. I always suggest that clip in hair extensions are a great alternative, however alot of women are either reluctant to try these or have problems putting them in their hair themselves which is understandable because they can be quite fiddily and if put in wrong can either damage their own hair or look bad. I recently saw this.. its called ” Hair Chalking ” and thought what a great idea!! This would be perfect for anyone wanting a quick temporary fix to bright coloured hair extensions or just wanting to try something new and perhaps seeing if they like it or not? You could do this everyday if you wanted.. A new colour for each day of the week you say? :)

All you need is water and coloured chalk. Then just dampen the section of hair you want coloured and using the colour of chalk you want rub on the hair strands. You can then dry it of with a blowdryer or straighten and style over it, you may need to redo this a couple of times to get a more vibrant colour if you have darker hair but this is completely safe and can be done on children as well. Removes with just shampoo and water! :)

Kim Kardashian Style Makeup and Beauty Product Organiser

Posted April 12th, 2012 by pain with No Comments


We all know that storing our beloved makeup and beauty products is something that can prove to be difficult because like myself we want something that is stylish and allows us to see exactly what we have and is easy to access when we need our makeup or beauty products. But with the Flip Top Makeup Organiser which in my opinion is the ultimate in makeup and beauty storage organisation. This unit is very similar to the one Kim Kardashian uses as her makeup organiser as seen on the TV Show Keeping Up With The Kardashians on E! This will easily store your makeup collection or beauty products beautifully and trust me you will be the envy of all your friends & family!!
Better yet the flip top section is 4cm deep, drawers two, three, four and five are 3.5cm deep and the bottom drawer measures 7cm deep. This Makeup / Beauty Organiser is a huge five drawer unit plus a flip top section making it a six compartment makeup organiser, one of the largest makeup organisers on the Australian market!!

Bridal Makeup And Hair Styling For Celebrity Weddings

Posted July 30th, 2011 by pain with No Comments

Guess what ladies…?

The celebrity wedding moment we have all been waiting on has finally arrived, well not just yet but the soon to be bride Kim kardashian will be marrying the hunky basketball player boyfriend ” Kris Humpries ” and we are sure that their wedding will be nothing short of amazing a real fairy tale wedding!!

Of course we cannot expect anything less than “Flawless” in the make up and hair styling department of Kim’s wedding, we personally think that her bridal hair style is going to be a slicked back, elegant up style but with a modern day twist on an old vintage classic hairstyle.

We can only imagine that Kim will play down her bridal make-up to something a little more bride worthy instead of her signature smokey eye look and nude lips, perhaps again an old vintage winged eye-liner paired with some beautiful long faux eyelashes and a deep red lip.. We have noticed lately that she is playing around with the vintage look a bit so this is our take on her wedding makeup and hairstyling!!

There is no doubt she is going to look absolutely beautiful no matter what bridal makeup or hairstyle she decides to go for on her big wedding day, but we guarantee it will be the most blogged and talked about bridal event as its already causing a huge stir in the media and among the make-up and hair styling industry.

So whats your take on her wedding?
Would you take a bridal risk or play it safe?

Clip In Human Hair Extensions

Posted July 20th, 2011 by pain with No Comments

Hi ladies,

Ok, are you looking at finding out about clip in hair extensions in sydney or other methods?
There are many different types of human hair extensions in sydney that you can get done including: clip in hair extensions, micro bead hair extensions hair, micro loop hair extensions and micro beaded weft hair extensions for hair.

Although, yes they are all forms and ways of getting that long luscious hair you have always dreamed off some of these methods of extending your hair i would consider telling you not to get done and this has to do with the way they are applied and the damage they can cause your real hair if not applied right.

I know alot of you have heard some shocking horror stories or perhaps have even seen some appalling pictures of hair extension in hair that have been done to other women, well this is because the technician has not properly assessed your hair and discussed with you what form of hair extensions are best suited to your hair type!

We highly endorse they clip in hair extension or the micro beaded weft hair extension as these cause very little to no damage to your hair at all especially if applied correctly which bodacious is trained to do, so you will not have a problem with lots of hair loss, although you naturally lose 200-300 strands of hair a day and this will come out when the micro loop or weft human hair hair extensions are removed!

Hair extensions are a great way of adding artificial hair or real human hair to our natural hair to create volume and length to either conceal hair loss or thinning, another reason women get extensions are to make a fashion statment this is why we have a range of colours to suit everybody’s personality ranging from from pink to yellow.. the list goes on!!

Hair extensions can be applied within a matter of a few hours and are pain free, you can easily change these at any time and can cut, curl, colour and do various different hair styles with them. You can basically treat them as if they were your own hair, although hair extensions require maintenance every month or two depending how quickly your hair grows.

With the right extension specialist like bodacious you can easily look years younger in a matter of hours and our prices are very competitive for the quality and reassurance you will get from knowing that you have experienced professionals working on your hair.

Please visit our prices page for more information regarding this popular service that even celebrities get!!
We look forward to making your hair bodacious soon xx

Select the right makeup artist or hair stylist for you

Posted June 18th, 2011 by pain with No Comments

Some of the best makeup artists are based in Sydney, so competition is very fierce. However, price is not always the best comparison when you are deciding on which makeup and hair stylist is best for your event, wedding, bride or bridal party.

When deciding, always make sure you obtain references from previous work, a professional makeup artist will always have a comprehensive up to day portfolio of works. Make sure that the products the hair stylist or makeup artist uses are of the highest quality and tailor your makeup to suit your skin type. If someone says “smoky eye” run for the mountains, they just haven’t given it enough thought or been watching too much Jerseylicious!

Anyone can learn the basics of makeup beauty services off youtube, but make sure the person or beauty services group you select has the right credentials and certifications. How many years have they been a makeup artist? Make sure you ask as many questions as you can to feel at ease, as you want no additional stresses on the day of your wedding, formal or special event.

When you are organising your wedding one of the biggest priorities behind the dress is the selection of your hair stylist and makeup artist. Hopefully you manage to find someone who provides both technical beauty services. Bridal hair sets the mood and the bridal makeup is the gloss that makes you shine.
Your selected makeup and hair stylist should always be professional and punctual. Great service is not just in the application of the makeup or hair, its about the holistic package that they provide.

Don’t ever sell yourself short, make you special event, wedding or formal the most amazing of days and a way of making sure this happens is in the correct selection of the most professional and suitable makeup artist or hair stylist for you.

What is the definiton & nature of a sydney makeup artist?

Posted December 7th, 2010 by pain with No Comments

Definition and Nature of the Work

Make up artists are experts at giving people a desired look through the use of make up, wigs, and other tools of the trade. Many make up artists work in a theater or performance environment. Others apply make up for television and film. Some make up artists put lipstick and mascara on department store customers in order to help sell mass-market makeup products. Cosmetic companies also employ make up artists as consultants. Make up artists are often hired for one-time events like fashion shows or weddings.

The job of show business make up artists is to apply makeup to performers according to the specific needs of the person or show. In some cases, they may use make up to make an actor look much older or younger, or even to look like a monster or alien. In other situations, the job involves simply hiding blemishes and making the performer look as beautiful as possible under stage lights. Make up artists who work in this type of setting must be knowledgeable about the effects of stage lighting on a person’s appearance. These artists must also be good at analyzing a script to make sure the characters end up looking the way they are described. All of these decisions must be made in collaboration with directors and costume designers.

Makeup artists are also special effects experts in a sense. They must have the skill to give performers realistic looking scars, make them look sick, or give them other unusual physical characteristics as necessary. Sometimes this involves making rubber or plastic “prostheses,” or pieces that are applied to change the performers’ appearance. To design the right prostheses, a makeup artist must be able to accurately evaluate the place in which the performance will take place, taking into account the size of the venue, lighting, and distance between the audience and the stage.

In the consumer market, a sydney make up artist must understand color and skin tone in order to match each customer with the right makeup. They must also understand what kinds and amounts of makeup are appropriate for different people. For example, makeup that looks good on a nightclub bartender might be totally inappropriate on a business executive—even if the two are identical twins.
