Red Carpet : Logies 2014

I always love watching the Logies for the glitz and glamour and celebrating Australian tv.

There were a few surprises, like The Block's Scott Cam won the much-loved Gold Logie. But there were some stunners like Kylie and some shockers like Asher Keddie.

Check out some of my favourites and some of the eye-sores

Carrie Bickmore, Gold Logie Nominee

The Bachelor Australia's first couple, Tim and Anna

And now for the eye-sores...

Makeup : CK One Color

When I do have the time, I love escaping to Myer in Sydney CBD.

Lots of makeup brands and sales personnel trying to grab your attention and sell their products to you.

Well I was grabbed by the below counter. (Posted on my Instagram account @ellyalwaysloves)


What this brand offers is simplicity and the choice of relying I fewer products. This is great especially if you are travelling for work or going on a holiday, it's not ideal to bring your whole makeup and skin care products.

My makeup took 20 minutes (yes, talking about simplicity).
The look was casual for the day and enough for an after work drinks. (See pic below with my lovely fiancé, yep announcement right here!)

I used the below products.

Foundation - 3 in 1

I love the idea that there is three things in one. There is a serum in this which is great because I don't use a serum currently. There is a primer which means the foundation lasts longer. The finish is ok. It's a light coverage which suits me fine. But it smells a bit funny which I can't figure what smell it is.

Cream and Powder Duo Blush

CK have great ideas and I love how they have combined the best of both worlds - cream and powder. You use the cream first which is a darker colour and use the powder to give a soft and feminine look.


This lipgloss range comes in many colours. The lipgloss smells really nice. And it glides on effortlessly and the best thing about it is, non-sticky.

Please head to Myer City for your mini-makeover!
