Skylar Fashion has been a little secret since a few months ago, and I started talking about it back in December when it was supposed to launch. We got held up due to some technical problems and because I had to travel, but we have finally launched!
We aim to deliver fashionable pieces ready for any work event or party.
Here are some of our pieces I particularly like. Don’t forget that we also ship worldwide and free shipping to Australia over AU$50!!

Floral Strapless High Low Dress in Pink (here) RRP $95.00

And because we have literally JUST LAUNCHED and you guys are the first to find out, I have a special discount code for you!! If you input FIRST10 in the discount code at checkout, you will 10% off your total cart!!
Now, as we are trying to get the word out, please support us by spreading the word on our newly launched store. You can tweet us, instagram or facebook us!
On December 13th – 15th, Gloss cosmetics invited nail artists from Iscreamnails (based in Melbourne) to come to their new Parramatta Flagship store and help girls do their nails for free!!!
(I hope you guys went after I tweeted about it ^O^)
The new GLOSS Flagship store – like all the other Gloss stores – is super bling and pink!! You can spot it straight away!! This is their second Parramatta store and is located right beside to Ice & Supre in Parramatta Westfields! Find all their other locations here.
LOL. There is a guy in this photo. That was unintentional.. but there were quite of few of them in the store! :D
The nail artists doing free nail art for the girls. I must say.. they were super quick at it!! Each girl took about 5 minutes each! The design below was done for the girl infront of me.
They even catered for these designs which looked super time consuming! I like the diamond one on the bottom left corner!!! *sings “we’re like diamonds in the sky”*
After getting your nails done, you can walk your nails through the manicam!!! This is a new concept Gloss is really excited about!!! It’s essentially like a catwalk but for your nails!!!
**Check it out!**
They were also giving out free fairy floss at the front of the store!!! What a way to attract girls. Girls and sweets and beauty!!
The best thing about Gloss is that they always have your big brands of cosmetics – Revlon, BYS, Maybelline, SugarBaby, Chi chi cosmetics, Model Co – just to name a few – for discounted prices!! There are usually quite a few shades of the products too – unlike some discount outlets!!
Unfortunately I couldn’t get my nails done that day because I had shellac, but I generally love Gloss!! My closest store is in Hurstville and I quite frequently bump into readers in that store!! (Funnily enough)
Anyhow, hope you guys have been having a good week – it’s almost Christmas.. and it’s almost 2013!!! I can’t believe it!
Here’s a quick camwhore shot of me (on a Monday, hence why I had a sad face) to keep you guys updated! I have a few reviews for you guys that I will hopefully be able to post before Christmas.. which I think will be very exciting to read!!!
Removing your make up after each day is the most important step of your preparation to sleep.
I wear foundation/powder/BB Cream every single day (working days and weekends) so make up removal is a critical step for me. Many girls seem to confuse “removing make up” with “cleansing face”… both steps are critical.
To end each day, I typically start off with wet wipes to remove my face makeup. I’ve tried a few different brands and you can go with each ever one you think is the most effective for you.
For eyes & lips, I’ve found that Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) has worked the best. It’s pure, natural and removes stubborn waterproof makeup without having to tug onto your skin (which causes wrinkles and aging).
With that, you have completed the steps of “makeup removal”.
Lastly, you must cleanse your face. This means.. removing any remnants of the EVOO or residue from the wet wipes.
By the time I get to this step, I tend to be quite lazy. I feel like I’ve already removed my make up and don’t want to have to double cleanse my face..
This is where.. Clearasil Perfectawash is handy!
With the ease of an on & off switch and a simple touch, Clearasil’s Perfecta Wash automatically dispenses exactly 1.5mL of product to cleanse your face. No more wastage of products when you accidently squeeze out too little or much!
Including the second cleanse in your routine can be frustrating to include but you must include it as a habit.

The “ulzzang” Korean make up look focuses on the clear skin complexion. To achieve this look, start by cleansing your face with the Clearasil Perfectawash (scroll down to the bottom of this post to learn how to win yourself one).
4minute’s hyunA is typically known for her beautiful skin. To replicate the look, start off a perfect base and prime prior to applying your base foundation and concealer.
By creating a smoother base, you will find your foundation will stay on for longer and look more perfect for photography.
I feel like HyunA’s eye makeup in the Gangnam style music video is very droopy so I have recreated the look by extended the eyeliner downwards to create a puppy eye feeling.
Her eyebrows are very light and bleached. I have recreated this by patting my face powder on my eyebrows and using a blonde hair colour eyebrow mascara, lighten the individual hairs on my brows. You can see that it instantly draws the attention away from my brows and brings more attention to my eyes and lips.
For the lips I have created a gradient of pink shades by using two pink lip products. I’ve created more of a pout by applying a darker/brighter pink in the inner areas of my lip.
See the whole tutorial in video here.
Clearasil is also giving my readers a chance to win their very own Clearasil PerfectaWash pack!

Here’s mine: I dry my face with a microfiber cloth each and every night to ensure that the make up on my face is completely removed prior to sleeping!
