Yasemin Turker, editor at Primped.com.au
About a year ago, I was extremely dedicated to the hunt for the perfect life and was ticking all the boxes – good job, great man, great friends – and yet I was supremely unhappy. Around the same time, I started to look more often at the fabulous beauty website Primped.com.au and noticed how bubbly and happy it’s editor, Yaz, seemed to be. Thus started my view of ‘I’ll have what she’s having’ and my wellness journey began. I started yoga, ate better, and started to take more care of me, because those were the things Yaz did (except she cared for her, not me, silly). While still on the journey, I’m so much happier now, and I have Yaz’s smily face to thank for it. Here, she shares those happiness secrets (and beauty tips) with us. Yay!
Beauty routine, day: Due to the nature of my job, I get to try approximately 5,347 new products every month, so as you can imagine I’m always switching my skincare around. That said, at the moment I’m loving SK-II and I’m currently using their Cleanser, Facial Treatment Essence and Cellular Moisturiser. My daily routine consists of cleansing, essence-ing, and moisturising, as well as a twice weekly scrub for clearing away dead skin cells. Oh, and sunscreen. EVERYDAY. My hair and makeup are pretty low-maintenance, I tend to go for top knots and lots of mascara.
Makeup, day and night: Is ever-changing. I do enjoy a bright lip and liquid liner for both day and night, otherwise I go for a bronze smoky eye and nude, glossy lips.
Beauty routine, night: My nightly routine is pretty much a replica of my daytime one minus the sunscreen. If I’m in the mood, I might whack on a mask or an eye cream, but I always make sure I remove my makeup no matter what.
What’s great about everyday Aussie beauty? Oh, everything. We’re so laid back with our beauty regimens and maintain that natural beauty in pretty much everything we do. I love that. I think the Aussie girl also radiates beauty from the inside, which for me, is the most important thing. Yep, I am a nerd, but I’m cool with that. Read the rest of this entry »
