Do you have Imposter Syndrome? + How to get rid of it in 2017


Imagine this. You’re a self-taught photographer, and all your friends love what you do. So naturally you take the leap and quit the 9-5 in favour of this passion you’ve had for the past two years. Suddenly everything changes. You start to doubt your ability, and if you have the right to walk amongst the trained professionals, let alone if you have the right to charge for it.

Imposter Syndrome is exactly this: 
– You don’t feel deserving of where you are
– You question how you even got here with your current credentials
– You look inwards with the darkest part of your thoughts putting you down on the simplest thing
– You feel like an imposter, and it’s only time before you’re found out

5 Rules for quick makeup application


There’s no denying that we’re all a little short for time in the mornings. If you’re anything like me (and of course you are), you’d much prefer those extra 10 minutes in bed than waking up to reality and starting your day.

Everyday routines should be easy and down packed, including the all important morning routine. With the launch of cult classic beauty brand, TheBalm® Cosmetics in New Zealand – whose brand is all about beauty in 5 minutes – it was only fitting to team up and teach you how to complete your makeup routine in 5 minutes flat.
