I really want to dive back into my creative space by I'm really enjoying being real and raw for the moment. Makeup and edit free and LOVING it.
I have also been thinking lately that I want to incorporate other aspects of my life on here instead of having two IG accounts.
Let me know if that's something you're interested in or if you want me to keep it completely makeup related #mua#makeupfree
long post alert
You have probably wondered why I go from posting regularly and then dropping off the face of the earth - repeatedly.
Well, sometimes life just gets busy but mostly it's because I struggle with depression and anxiety.
Officially I was diagnosed at the young age of 7 and I have been riding this fucking roller coaster ever since.
Thankfully, my depression is not what it used to be though my anxiety rears its ugly head on a daily basis. A few weeks ago things were going pretty well, I was feeling so inspired, creative and taking time out for myself and I was feeling great.
Then two weeks ago while on my way to work I found out my dad was sick and he needed to start treatment the following week. Immediately after the phone call my mind spiralled out of control, my anxiety was overwhelming and I felt like the world came crashing in. I couldn't help but think the worst immediately and I felt so defeated. I let my condition get the best of me - again. My mind has been pretty dazed since and I'm trying to focus on my family and my wellbeing right now. I always think I can just decide to be positive and then my condition will go away but it doesn't work that way, it's just something I will always battle in my life and I just need to give myself some time. If any of you suffer from anxiety just know that you aren't alone and you don't have to overcome it overnight. To those who are still here thankyou for sticking around, your support means the world to me
yes lauren IS wearing a pink lipstick and no eyeshadow - which is not like me but I'm living for this lip combo! I'm wearing BABY + SLAY liquid lipsticks from @selenecosmetics you can use my code 'LAURENXO' at the checkout to save some #mua#selenecosmetics#spring
I heard so many people saying they could never use this palette because they were overwhelmed with all of the deep grungey hues (which is normally right up my alley thankyouuu @norvina) so I wanted to show people that you can really create so many different looks with the subculture palette, even a simple bronzed smokey eye like I did here.
The shades are all so buttery and pigmented and blended out like a dream! I can't wait to get into the other shades and create something different, this palette has truely inspired me.
I used the shades
Adorn, Fudge, New Wave, All Star and Rowdy and I paired this eye with the @anastasiabeverlyhills liquid lipstick in 'Stripped'. #subculture#subculturepalette#anastasiabeverlyhills#norvina
missy out here making an appearance on the gram!
I have a cold and this lil one is making me feel loads better
leave a if you're a dog lover
I'm embracing my natural highlights at the moment and I'm really digging this colour! My hair never stays dark and since I'm trying to grow it as long as possible I'm trying not to colour it again for a while
What do you guys think? #hair#hairofinstagram
I don't normally show my everyday makeup because I find it quite boring but I'm having a good eyebrow day so I figured a selfie was in order
If anyone wants deets on this everyday fresh makeup look then drop your fav emoji below!
P.S peep the growing spring onions in the background #mua#dewy
I love this combo
My skin has good days and bad days but since incorporating the new @lorealskin detoxifying gel wash into my skincare routine it has more good than bad. I pair it with the detoxifying + brightening clay mask for an even brighter completion #mua#lorealskin#pureclay#claycleanser#detox
This birthday present from my wife was a great one - these HIDDEN HILLS shades from the @quayaustralia x @kyliejenner collection were released on my birthday and it was if it were fate because I am completely obsessed! I've been wearing them so much this past month I have completely forgotten to snap a pic until now ♀️ Who else got something from this collection? #mua#kyliejenner#QUAYXKYLIE#QUAYSQUAD#QUAYAUSTRALIA

I've been a ride or die fan for the Magical Moringa facial moisturiser for around 6 months now but the Mask of Magnaminty face and body mask that my sister bought for me a few weeks ago (thanks boo) is a new addition that I have fell head over heels for
It feels so fresh and invigorating while being infused with honey and exfoliation particles it soothes and smoothes the skin like a dream.
I don't know what I did before these guys but my skin has never looked better!
P.S let me know if you like the new background, it's so close to spring I thought to brighten up my page a lil bit #mua#skincare#lush#lushcosmetics#magicalmoringa#maskofmagnaminty
goodies from the huge @maccosmeticsaustralia#nationallipstickday giveaway!
My wife and I went down to the James St store and picked out some new lipsticks for free
Did anyone else snatch some up?
