Do you remember your first lipstick?
I remember getting my first MAC lipstick for my 16th birthday. It was the Viva Glam Gaga - a gorgeous baby pink. I wore it EVERYWHERE! It was my most prized possession and still to this day, I wish I still had more of it.

Fast-forward to being a 26-year-old, I'm still swooning over MAC. But this time, rather than reaching for the eccentric colours, I stripped it down. I was looking for something natural that's like 'your lips but better'.

I found it. Introducing 'Modesty' by MAC - a beautiful Cremesheen that I am constantly reaching for. It's my perfect nude - not too brown and not too pink. It's like the Goldilocks "just right" lipstick for me!

Science lovers, unite!
If you've ever wondered about what exactly goes into your favourite skincare and supplements, then you're in luck! In my new episode of Fashion Avenue Podcast, I chatted to Joao Paulino, Senior Product Developer for Swisse Beauty.

With a background in Pharmaceutical Sciences, Joao has been working in the pharmaceutical, wellness and beauty industries for eight years, both in Australia and Brazil. So, I thought I would pick his brain on the science behind some of your favourite Swisse products, how they're formulated, what the differences in ingredients are and the ins and outs of supplements!

We've all been there - hearing things like active botanicals, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals - but what does it REALLY mean? Joao explained what each of these mean, their role in skincare and why they're so important.

But not just that, you'll take away so much knowledge about ingredients like Manuka Honey, Salicylic Acid, Niacinamide, Argan Oil and Hemp Seed. Whether you want to combat oily skin, inject hydration, turn back the clock or improve your skin elasticity, there's an ingredient for everyone!

While we take care of the outside, we also want to make sure we're balancing it with everything going on inside. I've taken supplements on and off in the past and have felt overwhelmed with the amount of options there are on the market. Joao really puts your mind at ease and explains all about supplements, the importance of consulting a doctor, reading the label and what the differences are in something such as hair supplements compared to one for your skin.

If you're keen to know what supplements do for our bodies, when's best to take them, how they perfect the ingredients, how to choose the right one for ourselves and how supplements can help with gut health issues and more, then you're gonna LEARN today!
