The 3 Best Swimming Holes And Waterfalls At Kakadu

The natural burst of water from the intrinsic landscapes gives rise to the beautiful and magical waterfalls and waterholes. Australia is usually famous for enormous and stunning beaches and other natural elements. The most ideal point of the northern territory is the waterfalls, a perfect call for wild swimming. The tropical climate of Australia is the biggest reason that would prompt you to swim at such wild waterfalls.

The natural falls and holes are bit risky due to the presence of water crocodiles. Even if you choose to swim in the natural falls, it would be wise to swim safely with the recommendations of the park authority. In order to have an incredible swimming experience, try out at the forth coming swimming pools.

Have an exciting swimming experience at best falls of Kakadu

Gunlom Falls

This is often the part of lower pools and is mainly crowded by the tourists. The waterfall is observed travelling through the saddled copper escarpments. This fall is the beautiful combination of the waterfall and the magical pool. The shady gums around perfectly cools down the picnic spot. While you take a walk around the steep rocky pools, you can view the southern ridges and hills.

Another speciality of this fall is that it is the largest river water system that is protected under the National park. This is the area of World Heritage site and is sure to rejuvenate you. Take a view of the Alligator Rivers at the upper front while enjoy swimming with your dear ones at the lower end of the pool.

Moline Rock Hole

Among different gems and elements of Kakadu, this is the hidden gem and is mainly untraced. As the place is less dominated by the people, the number of crocodiles might be more and consequently the danger too. Among the locals, this is the most loved spots. Though the place is not as beautiful as the Gunlom or other waterfalls yet it sparkle the clarity of water. The shiny touch of the water really prompts one to take a swim in this. The most enjoyable part is around the wedge shaped pool that is present between the sloping rocks.

The entry area of the park is quite fascinating and attracts the picnic lovers. The lower end of the pool is however the potential house of the crocodiles and safety in all cases is necessary.

Motorcar falls

This is the well kept secret of the Kakadu national park while taking the path of historical vehicle track. In order to reach the fall, you need to take a step towards the open woodlands, and then comes the termite mounds and finally the knots of mangroves which will take you straight forward to the fall. The waterfall is the part of the Yurmikmik walks.

This waterfall is particularly the best spot especially at the time of summer when the region hardly experiences any rain. The Motorcar creek is usually surrounded by the lush monsoon forest and is a bit shady retreat for the picnic lovers.

The entire waterfalls and swimming holes in the Kakadu National park is the house of the crocodiles which is bit dangerous for the unknown visitors. The perfect wild swimming experience can be availed with the Kakadu 4wd tours. They will help you swim safely combined with an exotic experience with your dear ones. Enjoy picnic in the midst of nature beside these waterfalls. In order to swim safely without any risks, it is essential to follow the guidelines of the travel guides. The further decision is at your own risk and the tours and travels are not responsible for this. So swim safely and make your Kakadu trip memorable rather haunting.

L.A. based makeup artist and official Ipsy Creator Roxette Arisa’s top makeup tips with Deck of Scarlet #07 Palette.

Set Your Face

  1. Skin Prep: Before you apply foundation, don’t forget to treat your skin with a light weight oil or primer. By moisturizing your skin, your makeup will flake less and stay on longer!
  2. Foundation Time: Apply a breathable foundation like, Too Faced Born This Way with a beauty sponge. Gently tap in the foundation all over for optimal blending.
  3. Conceal Imperfections: Brighten up your under-eye area with a full coverage concealer like, Tarte Shape Tape. It blurs to perfection, removing those “divots” seamlessly. When applying, I like to use a small brush so you can target the area without overdoing it. This will ensure that you’re using the correct amount without causing cakey-ness.
  4. Set It: Before moving on to color, set your foundation and concealer. I use the Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder because it has a peachy undertone that helps to cancel out discoloration.

Look Nighttime/Dramatic Look

  1. Prime Your Peepers: Find a light weight primer that will keep your shadows in place. I use the Makeup Forever Step 1 Skin Equalizer Primer because it’s sheer and doesn’t feel heavy as you build on it. Dab it on with your ring finger until it’s fully absorbed.
  2. Apply Your Base Shadow: For a multi-dimensional look, use the “Bronzed” eyeshadow in the new Deck of Scarlet #07 Edition Palette. The hues have a beautiful copper undertone which will add a slight shimmer. Apply the shadow to you lids with a medium blender brush, then, take a smaller brush, like a small domed shader brush, and use it to define your crease and soften out the edges.
  3. Lash Love: For a dramatic evening look, first apply a layer of mascara to your top lashes, then pop on some fluffy lashes for added volume and length. I love Lilly Lashes in Mikonos. To apply, simply add a little glue on to the band and place them atop your lash line.
  4. Color Vibes for the Eyes: Enhance your inner eyes with a bright, bold color. Using a small round brush, tap on the Deck of Scarlet turquoise color in, “Bora Bora” and apply it to the inner corner of your eyes. This adds a delicate, yet impactful, touch of color while also making them look brighter and more awake.
  5. Bottoms Up: Define your eyes by lightly lining your bottom lash line with the “Bronzed” shadow. You can use an angled shadow brush or a medium round brush to line the bottom and smoke it out. Then, using your brush, connect the bottom to the top to fill in that empty space at the outer corners of your eyes.
  6. Line Em Up: Finish off your eyes with the “Goddess” waterproof eyeliner and apply it to your water line for a kiss of shimmer.
  7. Get Cheeky: Using a blush brush, swirl on some of the Deck of Scarlet, “LoveSick” blush and blend backwards starting at the apples of your cheeks.
  8. Highlighter Life: Highlighter really amps up a natural daytime look. “Roxstar” is one of my favorite highlighters and it pairs perfectly with “LoveSick.” I tend to be a little extra, so I use a nice fluffy brush, like a flat top foundation brush, and apply a little on my forehead, chin, and cheekbones
  9. Pucker Up: For a nice full lip, use the Deck of Scarlet “Foxy” lip liner to outline around your pout. The formula is super creamy and prevents feathering and bleeding. Then, apply, “Sweat Away” for a deep, versatile look.

THE STORY:

Get ready to “drop the mic” on the beauty aisles at Target stores this December. The Doux® (pronounced The Do) is a “new school” modern hair care system with an “old school edge.” With packaging that is bold and bright and product titles inspired by 90’s hip hop, The Doux is poised to kill it with those seeking a way to smoothing curly, kinky, and wavy hair into both, curly or straight styles.

Created by Maya Smith, a 25-year celebrity stylist and International Curl Master, The Doux was first launched in Europe in 2011 in response to her passion for helping people master the hair they were born with. STRAIGHT, NATURAL, CURLY, or RELAXED, according to The Doux, if you grew it, it’s ALL GOOD. “I was living in Germany at the time, had my own salon there and my specialty was helping clients to transition to a relaxer-free lifestyle. I’m obsessed with people maximizing the potential of the hair they were born with. Mastering curls is my passion and purpose,” explains Smith.

The people felt her passion through her products. The Doux blew up overseas so much so that it caught the attention of media in the USA. “Once we started getting press in the states the demand for The Doux was incredible. I had to return to the states and see this vision through,” Maya Smith explains. In 2014, Maya opened The DOUX Salon™ in Macon Georgia’s historic Downtown district and started selling her professional grade products at her salons and on-line.

Fast-forward three years and a lot of work and dedication, The Doux will arrive in Target stores, on Christmas Eve; no easy feat for an indie brand. “We are so excited to bring The Doux to the masses. It’s 20 years in the making. We listened to 20 years of feedback from actual clients from Minneapolis to Morocco. We listened to what people wanted, a salon grade, high quality product that delivered on its promises. Helping people to manage and maintain their natural hair and celebrate their own bold, unique style is what the last 25 years of my professional life has been about,” Maya Smith shares.

The Doux also redesigned its packaging, with the intention to disrupt the category. It’s bold with bright colors, which is the opposite of the more subdued look you see on the shelves currently. “I’m a fan of 90’s rap so I wanted to incorporate lyrics and titles in the packaging,” adds Smith. With titles such as Bonita Afro Balm, Mousse Def, Sucka Free, Fresh Rinse, and The Light, The Doux will most definitely catch the eyes of Millennials and Gen X’ers alike.

Other products in the line include:

*BONITA AFRO BALM™ Shine Enhancing Texture Cream Delivers shine and manageability for pixies, Afro’s, tapered cuts, and twist/braid/coil sets. Certified organic botanicals, alcohol & paraben free. MSRP: $15.99.

and

*THE LIGHT™ Shine Mist Preserves color and protects hair from heat styling. Reduces drying time and delivers weightless shine to finished looks. Adds natural luster to natural styles. Infused with Black Cacao, Passion Fruit, and Palm Oil. MSRP: $14.99.
