Bad Brows Be Gone – My Trip To RY Brickworks

posted by Madi West September 27, 2016 0 comments

If you’re anything like me, you’ll understand the pain that comes with maintaining a basic beauty routine – the hair removal, the ever-changing makeup techniques, the skin breakouts, the random weight gains, the struggle to find motivation to exercise and drink enough water, finding clothes that flatter your shape (because let’s face it, no one is a perfect size 6, and that’s totally awesome), awkward fashion trends… the list goes on and on.

I was never really blessed with natural skills in hair and makeup (hallelujah for the top knot), which is why I’m one to truly value the skills other women (and sometimes men) have in the beauty space, and especially when it comes to eyebrows.

I have bushy caterpillars above my eyelids and always seem to “nail it” on one, and completely miss the mark 5 seconds later on the other brow. I’ll master it one day, but so far, no good.

But alas ladies, there is a cure and that comes with eyebrow tinting and reshaping. Recently I visited the lovely gals at RY Brickworks who pampered me with a full on eyebrow treatment, and you can take my word for it, my eyebrows have never looked so good.

The process was quick and easy, and so comfortable that the hot wax just didn’t faze me. I rose from the chair with eyebrows to rival Cara Delevingne, and I was stoked. Plus, my new brows joined me on a holiday to Bali, where humidity, the ocean and makeup just don’t go well, but I can assure you my eyes were naturally on fleek for the entire 14 days.

So if you want to wake up in the morning with your eyebrows on point too  and not worry about the painful process of mismatched eyebrows, book yourself an appointment at RY Brickworks at Southport and take a drive down the M1 to find your brow mojo. You won’t regret it ladies… you’re welcome in advance.

While you are down on the Gold Coast getting your brows done, why not make a day of it with breakfast at a hip café, followed by a market jaunt, dip in the ocean of thrill-seeking experience. Check out our top 13 things to do on the gold coast here.

Ry Brickworks is located at3c/107 Ferry Rd, Southport QLD 4215, call on 07 555 10764 and learn more about the salon and their services here.

Inika Organic Cosmetics Review

posted by Michaela Petrofes August 23, 2016 0 comments

Before discovering Inika I was pretty anti-makeup. Personally, I didn’t like the way it made my skin feel and all the hidden nasties, as well as the ethical damage on animals and the environment from certain beauty brands. Therefore I never ever wore it. I decided enough was enough and made the decision to ditch every single beauty product that I own and replace it all with organic, vegan products. This decision was influenced by a number of things – wanting to stop using products that tested on animals, negatively impacted on the environment and overall wanting to use products that were going to benefit my skin. In the process, I uncovered Inika Organic Cosmetics and my makeup routine went from non-existent to something I look forward to!

Eating For #freshtodeath Skin

posted by Stephanie Dee April 12, 2016 0 comments

Glowing skin is a #lyfegoal for most of us young ladies getting about town.  And while having a good skin routine is important in keeping our skin free from outbreaks, enjoying a healthy diet is second-to-none in getting that glowing skin. What some of us tend to forget is that eating for #freshtodeath skin is just as important as a good cleansing routine if not more important.  Given that new skin cells are constantly being replaced (out with the old and in with the new, every month!) –  having a healthy diet free from toxins is no surprise in fuelling healthy cell renewal.  With only 8% of Australian adults meeting the recommended 5 serves of vegetables and 2 serves of fruit a day (as per Australia’s Health, 2014), more often than not you’ll be missing out on the key nutrients that important for good health, particularly for healthy skin renewal.

Beauty Tuesday: My Eyebrow & Eyelash Tint At Brazilian Beauty

posted by Teagan West March 15, 2016 0 comments

I know what you’re thinking… isn’t Brazilian Beauty for, well, Brazilian waxing. Nope! They do a whole lot more than just a Brazilian.

The wonderful team at Brazilian Beauty invited me into my local salon at Mt Gravatt for a treatment of my choice. I’ve always wondered how eyebrow and eyelash tinting works, and because I’m quite pasty with essentially white hair at 23 years old (not grew, childish white) I was quite curious about what it could do for me and my invisible eyebrows and eyelashes.

Beauty Tuesday: Charlotte Tilbury’s New Beach Sticks

posted by Teagan West March 1, 2016 0 comments

Although summer might have just come and gone in what feels like a blink of an eye, for us Brisbane girls, summer seems to linger right through to April and May some days. So, while our southern sisters in Melbourne and Sydney are pulling out their jeans and knits, we’ve still got the short shorts on and our legs out (woohoo!) for at least a couple more weeks. If you’re a born and bred Brisbanite, you’re probably wondering why I’m pointing out the blatantly obvious… but there is a reason to this madness I promise. We’re excited to introduce you to Charlotte Tilbury’s NEW Beach Stick range!
