beauty of the week

So for this segment this week, I decided to head back to my home country. You may have heard of Lorde? She sings the song Royals… well that’s how most people would identify her over this side of the world. Basically she is a hot, wee, thang who is currently taking the world by storm with her new album, ‘Pure Heroine’. BUT..have you taken the time to give her a glance?

Check out that mane! She is an absolute stunner. Killin’ it with her music and her look. For a 16 year old girl, it’s nice to see she’s so in her own. Knows her direction, who she wants to be, and keeps it fresh and simple for her age. Nothing suits her more than a smokey eye and nude lip, however she would look deadly with a dark, purple lip which is all the rage for this season. In saying that, she also looks beautiful with bare skin.

Who knows where this down-to-earth kiwi girl could be in a year or so – New Zealand repping it.

You can visit Lorde’s website here: http://www.lorde.co.nz and I highly recommend you purchase her album.

beauty of the week

Ellie Goulding really is a breath of fresh air. Her style eccentric, yet her makeup always minimalist and simplistic. A look I find so inspiring. She is my ‘beauty of the week’. I really can’t get enough of her, whether it’s stalking her Instagram, which thankfully she updates quite frequently, or just listening to her raw talent of a voice which is so sweet, yet packs a punch in her upbeat songs.

Her style is so unique and she surely was a stand out at London Fashion Week. I hope to recreate some of her makeup looks in ‘Beauty of the Week’ inspired tutorials in future posts, but while this blog is in the midst of its set up, I’ll leave you a few pictures of her to inspire and empower you in the meantime.

I hope you find her as much of an inspiration and a beauty as I do!
