FOTD: Peach Melba, or making the most of what you've got

This was what I wore yesterday to take my mum to the Where Three Dreams Cross exhibition at the Whitechapel yesterday which I mentioned some time ago (longer post coming up about the exhibition itself). I haven't worn MAC's Expensive Pink shadow in ages even though it's one of my favourites! Same goes with my Bobbi Brown Violet Shimmer gel liner, and my NARS lip lacquer that I bought from the fabulous Vexinthecity's blog sale after lemming it for ages. I clearly have too much makeup!




What I wore:

Base:
MAC Moisturecover Select concealer
Urban Decay Primer Potion

Eyes:
MAC Expensive Pink shadow over lid
Bobbi Brown Violet Shimmer gel liner on lashlines and waterline
YSL Faux Cils mascara
MAC Vanilla pigment as highlighter

Face:
MAC MSF in Dark
MAC Springsheen blush
MAC Spiked brow pencil

Lips:
NARS Lip Lacquer in Zazou (bit sticky for me but I love the shade and it has fab staying power!)

The makeup went with the print on a dress I also haven't worn in ages. I'm not liking much stuff in the shops right now (too many pastels, yuck!) but as with my makeup it's making me look through what I do have and wear stuff that's been lingering in the back of my wardrobe. I'm not so keen on brown based prints but I love the 40s vibe of this fan print:

  2. You look so pretty! You do the flicked liner really well. I need to dig out my expensive pink some time soon too.

    I went to see 'Where three dreams cross' recently too and I really enjoyed it but wish they had more descriptions about the photos to set the scene. It made me feel a bit frustrated! Oh and I discovered that Amitabh is called Amitav in Bengali!
