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:

MAC Moisturecover Select concealer
Urban Decay Primer Potion

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

MAC MSF in Dark
MAC Springsheen blush
MAC Spiked brow pencil

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:


  1. gorgeous as per usual my lovely x

  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!
