Make Up Tutorial: 'The Cat's Have Come Out To Play' Friday Night Look feat. Maybelline New York


On today's episode of 'Vanessa's Corner', I have made a 'Friday Night Make Up Tutorial'. For this make up look I opted for dark - neutral shadows, a smokey cat eye, muted lips and muted cheeks.This look is all about the contoured cheeks and fierce eyes. 
 I had a focal point of using long lasting make up products (girl, you want that make up to last all night!).

Whether you are going on a date, watching a movie, hanging out with the family or going out for a few drinks, this look was designed to versatile for all Friday Night Occasions. 

I decided to do a little twist with this make up tutorial and concentrate on using one brand only, today's episode we are using all 'Maybelline' products.

DIY: Home Decor' Tie Me Up Vase



On today's 'Vanessa's Corner' DIY episode, I show you all how to recycle an old vase into something shabby chic for your home. 
Something that looks expensive (but will only cost you $5.00 entirely) and something that looks time consuming to make (but in reality only took 20 minutes!). 


I hope you all enjoy this DIY Tutorial and get creative with it!
See you all in the next one!




What You Will Need:
  • An old vase that you wish to recycle (doesn't have to be a vase, you can use an old wine bottle, soy sauce bottle... anything of your choice!)
  • Rope or twine (enough to cover the vase)
  • Good Quality PVA Glue (that is very tacky and dries clear)
  • A fake flower (optional)
  • Glue Gun(optional - if you are planning on adding a fake flower)
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors

Make Up Tutorial - Winter Blues

Ever afraid of using blue eyeshadow? Does the thought of blue eyeshadow remind you of our older generations, where they just abused the colour and added a bright red lip to go with it? - That's how I felt about blue eyeshadow for a long time. 
For today's episode on 'Vanessa's Corner' I do a make up tutorial where you can throw away your distaste of blue eyeshadow and turn it into something... delicious... 
I hope you all enjoy this tutorial and get a few good make up tips along the way. Ciao!

Baby Babble - Natural Birth Recovery Tips


Hi all! On today's episode I decided to make a Baby Babble Video based on all the things I found extremely helpful during my recovery period after giving birth.
Some may think that this may be a bit TMI but there is no such thing as 'Too Much Information' when it concerns your recovery - you want a speedy recovery.

Before I continue on with the post I want to clarify:


I am in no way in shape or in form of a DR. These are just thing's that I've discovered after experiencing natural birth twice. Before you intake or try any of the tips I've recommended, please consult your DR. or midwife first. Some of these things (pain killers and stool softeners) may effect your milk if you plan on breastfeeding, so please, please, please ask your Dr. first before trying any of these things out. 


I hope you all enjoy this video!







Things mentioned in video:

1. Salonpas - Asian Grocer
2. Deep Heat - Woolworthes, pharmacy
3. Bottled Water
4. Towels
5. Tiger Balm - Woolworthes, pharmacy, Coles
6. Ural - Pharmacy
7. Coloxyl (Stool Softener) - Pharmacy
8. Sauce Bottle - Dollar Store, Diaso
9. Proctosedyl - Pharmacy 
10. Hair Dryer (with a cool setting)
11. Panadol - Pharmacy, Woolworthes, Coles
12. Tena Female Adult Nappies - Woolworthes, Coles, Pharmacy
13. Belly Bandit - eBay
