Christmas party

All the items I got in my Mary Kay Christmas Pre-pack.

Also, I have rented the hall at Nations Heart Christian Community (my mums church) so that anybody can come and view the products, smell them, feel them, it will be lots of fun. 
It will be on Monday the 26th of October

Doors will open so you can come and view from four in the afternoon.
At six thirty the raffle will be drawn and games will be played.

Everybody who comes will receive a raffle ticket, and if they bring a friend two raffle tickets.
Prize for the raffle will be a microdermabrasion set!

And there will be little presents for anybody who attends.
Games for other prizes.

And mum doesn't know it yet but she will bake one of her fruit cakes for everybody to share.

I hope to see you then.

Fall makeup look by Kat

My friend Kat has made another wonderful makeup look.

I really love all of her videos, and it slowly occurs to me that I have more of her videos up on my blog than I do my own.
If you visit youtube often then I really recommend subscribing to her channel by following the link to the video then clicking the subscribe button in the corner.



Microdermabrasion and how it works

Hello Ladies.

I made a video explaining the theories behind why microdermabrasion works.

Don't forget this fantastic video done by MKBeth29 about how microdermabrasion feels.
(also don't forget there is a difference between American and Australian prices)

And I hope I am informative.

Eye Primer

This was just a super quick demonstration I did of the eye primer.
I put some primer on my hand and dusted some eye shadow on so it was half over the primed area and half over my bare hand.

My friend Kat made another video, inspired by my video and by MKBeth 29's video (which inspired mine) and I think hers is a lot better than mine.

Hers addresses the other issues, like priming the eye with foundation, or concealer to help the eye shadow stick.

Why Hello There

When was the last time I just talked about me?
I mean, that is what most other people do with their blogs.

So, yeah.
Things are good and busy.

I got two or three videos filmed that I hope to get uploaded soon. That's pretty exciting. They are just about skincare and the such and give me a chance to show off just how much I don't remember about Beauty Therapy.

Tomorrow I am actually up to leave for a careers conference with Mary Kay at six am. I am not looking to the six am but I am looking forward to the conference. And what's more I am being driven there and back by two ladies with years of experience at being successful with Mary Kay so there is such a fantastic opportunity for me right there. That's really exciting.

Tomorrow as well I should be receiving my Christmas pack so I can film a little preview of some of the Christmas products for you. I am really looking forward to that.

On Monday the 26th mum has loaned me the church hall where I will be having a Christmas Preview where everybody will get the chance to see and feel all the Christmas products for themselves. That's super exciting.  (details to come)

And on Saturday the 31st of October I will be attending graduation where I shall officially receive my Diploma in Beauty Therapy from CIT. So exciting I don't even have words for it.

See you all in the comments  (and hopefully the Christmas Preview)

Foundation and Concealing tips by Kat

Hello Ladies.

My friend Kat has done it again and made a wonderful and informative video.

I must admit using too much foundation is one of by biggest sins.
I feel like I really need a lot to cover the redness in my checks, but I don't. I look much better when I use just a small amount.

Makeup brush cleaning

Hello ladies.

I intended to have a little tutorial on cleaning makeup brushes up by now, but unfortunately my camera is having technical difficulties, and I don't want to take my housemates camera into the bathroom next to water, so I found a brush cleaning tutorial to show you instead.

The only thing I would add is baby shampoo is a great for cleaning your brushes with once a week (the warm soapy water step)
And the every day spray stuff you should be able to find all over the place, like price attack or target or I got mine from David Jones.

I'll see you guys in the comments.
And as always, Don't Forget To Be Awesome.

Why Hello There Neighbour

Recently I sent around a letter to my neighbors (see below) that included this blog address.

So welcome Neighbors. This is my blog and I hope you find it useful.

First of all let me point you to the entire six posts I have made so far.

The post beneath this one is a microdermabrason set review. It was done by a beautiful girl I found on youtube and her video is just so honest. You can tell she means the things she says.

Next is another girl I found on youtube. She does a segment she calls "A Mary Kay Minute" on her channel and it's just so fun to watch.

Beneath that is the September Letter I email to all my customers.

The next post is a brush set review done by a wonderful friend of mine from america.

The last two are videos I made, tutorials, directions on how to apply makeup to get different looks and styles.

I do intend to make more, and different kinds of videos over the upcomming Monday/Tuesday.

I intend to get done that Monday/Tuesday:
A video on how to wash your brushes to take care of them
A video with a detailed explanation of what microdermabrasion is and how it works
A video about the importance of cleansing/moisturizing
And a video overview of how a skin care class will happen and what you as a hostess can do to help it be a success

If anybody has anything they would like to see, or questions they want answered then email me. or phone me.



My name is Rosemary and I recently moved into the neighbourhood. I just started selling cosmetics through Mary Kay and I need women to sample my product.

I set myself a goal of thirty new faces a month and I need your help to reach that goal. What I am offering is a chance for a skin care class, during which you will get a chance to trial the timewise set of three in one cleanser, day and night solutions and the moisturiser. After that I can match you up with your perfect match, foundation to suit your skin type and tone, and then we can talk about any specific skin care concerns you may have and I can let you have any colour samples you may want.
There is absoloutly no obligation, this is just the way Mary Kay gets their products known.

Now since it is just as easy for me to speak to four or five women as it is for me to speak to just one you can share your beauty appointment with three or four friends for a chance to earn hostess rewards. The company gives me the opportunity to share rewards with hostesses who open their home up to me and their friends for a chance to try some new products in a fun low pressure environment. In the month of October I can offer you the Mary Kay brush set valued at $75 if you share your appointment with three friends.

If you would prefer your first appointment to be alone, then by all means, try the products yourself first before recommending it to friends. A one on one appointment is heaps of fun.

If you would like to learn more about me or Mary Kay then I have started a blog at where I have put up a couple of videos on ways to apply makeup and product reviews etc.
Also check out for information about the company and it's products.
Or you can email me at or phone me on.

I really look forward to meeting new women and getting new opinions on my product.
I hope to see you soon.

Microdermabrasion Set

I just found a video from the sweetest woman talking about how she felt after trying the microdermabrasion set as part her timewise set.

I can't tell you about it. You'll have to watch it and then you will know why I think it's a special video.

The Australian prices are $181 for the Timewise Miracle Set and $66 for the Microdermabrasion.

Mary Kay Minute

Oh my gosh.
I just found the most adorable lady on the intertubes.
She is so funny and excited and just so neat.
I don't know how else to explain her.
Check her out.

And as always.

My Sept Letter

Good Mary Kay Morning ladies.

(this is the third time I've tried sending this mail, I seem to keep running into technical difficulty. Lets hope third time really is a charm.)

For the month of September I did... the word I am looking for is... appalling. I did really very bad. My aim was to have 30 new faces and I had... about three.

I have many excuses for why I didn't have the time last month, but excuses don't get anybody anything so this month I am going to pull my socks up and really get my products known by as many people as possible.

Special thanks to those three. Kathrine, Lizzy and Judy.

Now, for the month ahead.

Next month I am very pleased to offer a free Mary Kay Brush Collection to anybody who has an appointment and shares it with at least three friends. A friend of mine has made a little video about the Mary Kay brush set and I've put it in a blog post you can see here.

I have also stood true to my word on creating videos about ways to apply makeup to create different looks, you can see the makeup I would put on before heading out to work each day here, and a much more dramatic Betty Davis inspired look here.

Mary Kay also launched some new gift ideas for Christmas and I've attached a pdf brochure you all can look at, or simply head down to . There is a lot there to get excited about and it all comes with such lovely packaging. I am very excited about these products and I know which ones I really want to get.

Send me back an email or give me a call if you have any questions.
I hope to hear from you guys soon.

Thank you all.

And as always,

Don't forget to be Awesome.

Rosemary Pirie.
