Believe it or not for a long time and up until very recently I wore nothing but a smokey eye (think ‘Green Smoke’ from MAC) and liquid eyeliner was something I never dabbled with.
These days my daily look is all about a winged cat eye (albeit wobbly) and wearing complementary eyeshadow to make my blue/grey/green eyes pop. I am also dabbling with nude lipstick, I know I don’t recognise myself either!
The latest additions to my make-up bag are from MAC and were well and truly enabled by the gorgeous blogger Megan Ellaby. The day I bought these treasures was a huge and I mean huge turning point in my life and I now associate them with a new chapter, a new look and new me.
I decided it was going to be more cost effective to create a little duo palette rather than buy two separate eyeshadows. I knew that I wanted a ‘look’ that could be reached for in one place so I opted for the beautiful shades ‘Mythology’ and ‘Texture.’ The former is a gorgeous pinky toned nude shadow that belongs in the ‘Lustre’ family and I dust it all over my lids, it looks great when worn on it’s own but you really want to amp up the drama, work a little ‘Texture’ through the crease and blend. Texture is a matte orange/terracotta shade that compliments the pinky orange tones of Mythology, together you have dynamite for light coloured eyed.
I am a bold lip girl through and through with ‘Russian Red’ and ‘Girl About Town’ (Also from MAC) up there on my list of all time favourite shades to adorn my lips with. However, since my universe shifted and I am dabbling with a more natural look, I have been rocking a more nude, 90s inspired lip. Step forward ‘Velvet Teddy’ an infamous lippy, I know but it is just a gorgeous matte beige lippy that make you look good to go in an instant.
