 I'm usually pretty open to trying new things but there are a few things for which I'm a bit apprehensive of leaving my comfort zone, one of these things being my beauty routine. Nonetheless, Tas and I dropped into Issada Cosmetics (on Edward St) last Friday, to learn a little more about their fresh range, have the girls create our favourite winter looks  and become beautified! At its least, the experience was a super enlightening one for the both of us. I had gone along for the last five years following pretty much the same beauty regimen, but getting my makeup done by the girls at Issada made me realize that there were so many rad products my regimen had been deprived on, and how a couple of seemingly subtle steps with these products can make such a massive difference and got onto wishing that I'd tried Issada earlier!
 Anyway, Issada is an Australian, entirely mineral makeup range focused skin treatment and skin health and are packed filled with antioxidants, vitamins, collagen and more. Before this little rendezvous, I was a very rare foundation wearer - my usual foundations felt so suffocating and pore-clogging and often made me break out. However Issada cosmetics do just the opposite and feel so light-weight and nourishing (plus they ALL have the most delicious scents). Anyway, last Friday, I felt the store feeling the prettiest I've ever felt! I'd genuinely recommend Issada Cosmetics to anyone who hasn't tried them before - you probably won't go back to your oldies either :D
Our favourite products: 1. Silk Radiance Powder - this is the perfect little highlighter to give your skin that healthy glow / 2. Mineral Baked Foundation / 3. Matte Mineral Bronzer - great for cheek contouring / 4. Luxury Matte Lipstick in Gigi - I am a sucker for popping pick shades - this one is my new fave / 5. Mineral Liquid Powder Foundation / 6. Red Carpet Lashes - this is a white natural fiber that makes your lashes ridiculously longer (they're like 'brush on' false lashes)/ 7. Luminizer Stick - this is my personal favourite, it sharpens all your features dramatically like your nose, jawline, brow ridge and gives you that subtle glow / 8. Corrector Pencil in Buff - use this to line the inside of your eyes to make them bigger and brighter / 9. Mineral Lip Crayon in Pirate / 10. Lash Sculpt Mineral Mascara

My look - we went for bright pink lips, defined eyed and a natural glow to the skin
Tasfia's look involved more subdued, earthy eyes and more colour to the lips and cheeks
