Face of the day(s)

Happy New Year! I made a vague kind of resolution to wear more of my makeup this year - last year I got stuck in a bit of an eyeliner-mascara run, but I have lots of eyeshadows (particularly 10 mini MAC pigments from last year's holiday collection) and I should wear them more. Plus my sis bought me a lovely Urban Decay eyeliner and palette so I have even more shades to play with now!

So here are two looks I've done recently. The lilac shimmer look was for New Year's Eve (which was a nice quiet night in), and the green look was for a belated Christmas party my best friend held on the 2nd.

Base:
MAC Moisturecover Select concealer
Urban Decay Primer Potion

Eyes:
MAC Pigment in Quietly over lid
Urban Decay Oil Slick eyeshadow in crease (from new palette)
GOSH Metallic Brass eyeliner on waterline (sounds weird but it is in fact a lovely minky grey with a subtle shot of bronze shimmer - and my only grey liner!)
Urban Decay Revolver liquid liner on upper lid lashline (wot my sis got me for Christmas, lovely steel grey!)
YSL Faux Cils mascara

Face:
MAC Mineralise Skin Finish Natural
Shu Uemura Glow On Pearl blush in P Wine 25
MAC Brow Pencil in Spiked

Lips:
NARS Lipgloss in Metis

Close up (I have to work on my blending!) and excuse the chunky silver glitter, I used UD Uzi as a highlighter but it didn't really work. And then I couldn't get the glitter off!
















This looks quite light here but it was in fact much brighter green in real life, with glitter!

Base:
MAC Moisturecover Select concealer
Urban Decay Primer Potion

Eyes:
Shu Uemura eyeshadow in P Green 450 on lid
MAC Humid eyeshadow in crease and lashline
GOSH eyeliner in Woody Green on top lashline and waterline
MAC Glitter Liner in Lime Dandy over the top on top lashline
YSL Faux Cils Mascara

Face:
MAC MSF Natural
MAC blush in Springsheen (also from my sis for Christmas)
MAC Brow pencil in Spiked

Lips:
YSL Golden Gloss no. 7 in Golden Amber

  5. Aw thanks my lovelies - if I blushed I would!

    Laura - the GOSH liner in Woody Green is one of my absolute favourites, you must get! (Metallic Brass is also amazing!)

    Em - Lime Dandy was an LE liner from 2008 but I think Collection 2000 have brought out a similar shade recently, it's a goldy-greeny one? x
