Products inspired by the sliver screen feat. Blue Crush, Frances Ha, Mermaids and Daria

November 20, 2013
Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing Spray $15.99 available from, Model Co Gradual Tan $14.95 available from,  Dermalogica Protection 50 Sport $45.00 available from (available December 1st)

Blue Crush was one of those movies that immediately after watching it, made you want to learn to surf stat! Also start doing soft sand running to get Kate Bossie’s amazing bum. The babes in Blue Crush were super tanned but never burnt which means they would have definitely used a good sunscreen like Dermalogica’s newie Protection 50 Sport. They would have topped up their tans with a daily moisturising gradual tan for sure and every beach babe knows the importance of a generous spritz of Toni & Guy’s Sea Salt Texturizing Spray to get that post swim beach texture even if you haven’t been near the surf.

Make Up Store Cake Eyeliner in Black $32.00 available from, Nars Pure Matte Lipstick in Terre De Feu $40.00 available from, Chapstick Classic $4.69 available from

Daria was the flat line 90’s saviour of teen-toon culture, she saved me from a saturation of fluffy pink Baby Spice hair accessories and blow up furniture. Daria would have totally loved some matte black liner all the way around the eye and waterline smudged a little influenced by any Fiona Apple video clip, my favourite is The Make Up Store’s cake liner in Black because it is really really black. The next pick is a shout out to Jane who was constantly wearing the most perfect brown based dark red lipstick, even though it was just a cartoon I am going to use some creative licence here and bet it was a matte, and probably everything Nars’s Terre De Feu is and more. Chapstick Classic is the perfect pocket lipbalm for any nonchalant ‘alt’ teen, right?

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara $15.95 available from, Dr Bronner’s Magic Soap in Peppermint $3.20 available from Rosebud Salve $12.95 available from

Frances Ha was my favourite movie of 2013….I have seen it 4 times now, that’s all. Frances is hopelessly lovable and perfectly useless and all I wanted to know is what was in her beaten up back pack, so I guessed. She would totally have loved a mascara but not a fussy one, Maybelline’s Great Lash is the perfect mascara for non fussy lashes. Frances is constantly moving apartment so a mini Dr Bronner’s Peppermint soap seems like it would be a back pack essential for her. If you haven’t seen the movie *SPOILER ALERT* she goes to Paris and with not much money at all but she would have totally picked up a posh lip balm like Smith’s Rosebud Salve from Galeries Lafayette.

Clinique Superpowder Double Face Powder $50.00 available from, Estee Lauder Hydra Luster Lipstick in Rich Red $42.00 available from, Rimmel Gel Eye Liner in Blackest Black $12.95 available from
Charlotte Flax lost her virginity in the bell tower of a nunnery drunk whilst her sister almost drowned in a stream…heavy 90’s cinema. My favourite thing about Mermaids was the 90’s interpretation of 60’s make up. There was zero dewiness on the skin, it was all about a overly powdered matte finish, Clinique’s iconic jade powder compact is a perfect 90’s/60’s match. The scene when Charlotte is putting on her mother’s makeup on, smearing lipstick on it is from gold bullet and totallly Estee Lauder’s signature packaging. A cat flicked eye perfected Charlotte’s makeup, Rimmel’s gel liner is a super easy formula to use and the brush on top of the pot is perfect to apply the product. Mermaid’s was iconic for me, it was on repeat every school holiday and I wanted my Mum to be as cool as Cher, disappointed in my stable family and that I didn’t live near a nunnery and Michael Schoeffling didn’t drive the school bus.

    Okay, I’m serious guys.. I have peefrct facial features, but my face looks bland without something to spice it up. I wear black eyeliner all around my eye, with either no or some sort of glittery color or sparkly shades of brown eye shadow. I wear mascara, My eyelashes are super long, (Like an inch and a half long!) But they don’t show up unless I highlight them with mascara. I wear powder and foundation and concealer, but I don’t cake it on. My face gets red easily so there is no need for blush. My ears are pierced and I most often wear either black or silver Large hoops, or black or silver dangles, (Also large) I am slightly overweight, but I make the most of it. I have my own style, which is mainly goth based, but I like being colorful sometimes. So, that’s mainly my style. I look FAB and this year, I’ve had 6 guys go after me and ask me to be their date! I’ve gotten 8 super lovey Valentines so far, this year and I’ve had 3 guys ask me to be their date on Valentines day! I really luv my style, and other peeps luv it too. Makeup reely helps my face, and makes me look really fab. So yeah.. what I’m saying is, I don’t like the natural look, but thanks anyways for the tips to the younger ones.
