Now, to hand over to Tahlia…….
Hey there, my name is Tahlia! I am 21 years of age and am from the Gold Coast, Australia!
I am obsessed with makeup, music, love creating content for social media, travel, and spending time with friends and family. I was very sporty as a kid and was a competitive swimmer! I also have a passion for music and singing and perused that throughout my childhood.
I have always been interested in taking photos growing up and mucking around with friends but its only really been in the past year I’ve put effort into having a social media presence and its certainly beginning to pay off! Basically, every weekend I dedicate time to getting good quality content, tagging brands of the outfits I wear, going to new or popular locations/ bars and tagging them has really helped me along the way!
I like creating fun, positive and colourful content. I don’t like negative energy in my life and if I’m feeling down or something isn’t going as planned in my life, I will take time off social media so that I can always produce happy uplifting posts rather than the opposite. We all need a break from social media every now and then, so if I’m not feeling 100%, I don’t want to put that negativity out in the world.
My summer makeup routine always goes as follows;
A youthful, dewy look is my go to, with lots of bronzer to warm up my face!
I always, always, always use a matte face powder to set my foundation and concealer in place all day and I always set my face with a setting spray once I have completed my makeup. Then, if need be, I’ll take my powder compact with me wherever I go to do a touch up throughout the day.
Hydration is key! I make sure I have a big bottle of water on my desk while I work and force myself to get through at least 2 per day! So that tends to keep my skin looking and feeling hydrated. I also always moisturise my face after I have cleansed it morning and night.
Now, fake tan…. what can I say, I could not live without it! I tend to fake tan quite a lot to protect my skin from the sun and for the reason of it being so instant rather than baking in the sun for days. Although, I do love a good sunbake. I swim a lot in the pool and ocean, so when I do, I always make sure I have sunscreen on my face and am wearing a hat and sunglasses to protect my face and eyes. As for tanning, I like to use a tanning oil that still contains a bit of SPF to prevent burning.
Throughout summer I always must have a lip balm with me, sun tanning oil, a refreshing face spray, moisturiser, a hat, sunglasses, water, a bikini, beach towel, good music and good vibes…. Oh and a few mojitos!!!
Dewy youthful makeup looks always inspire me, I love effortless glam. Skin is my main focus when it comes to a healthy radiant makeup look. Minimal eye makeup and glowing skin with bronzer and highlighter are the way to go! If you take care of your skin and drink lots of water your makeup will end up looking 100% better!
Love Tahlia xx
