Okay so, instead of face of the day I thought i would do Eyeshadow of the day or rather, Eyeshadow look of the day or Eye look of the day, whichever.
I love putting on eye shadow, it’s so creative as you can mix different shades to create different looks, it’s easy to become inspired. That is what happened with me today, I didn’t plan anything other than what pallet I was going to use, whenever i start on creating an eye shadow look, i just go with it – make it up as i go along. Sometimes it looks good and sometimes it doesn’t but i like the freedom of not being bound by step 1 and step 2 etc.
What I used:
Sleek kohl eyeliner pencil – 121 Black
Clinique high impact mascara – 11 Brightening Black
Dainty Doll Eyeshadow base – 001
MAC quad – Shroom, Satin Taupe, Patina
I really like the outcome of this look and I could see myself creating it again. I don’t usually wear eyeshadow, only for occasions such as parties or going out for dinner but I would consider wearing this during the day as the shades are quite soft. It’s not overpowering but it isn’t too simple, I think it has the perfect balance and it looks great on the eyes and even better in person.
I have to talk about this, i found it quite amusing but it’s simple really. Well yesterday my Mum walked into my room, handing over to me what seemed to be a package addressed to me, which it was… I was confused as I hadn’t ordered anything, i didn’t have a clue what it could be. So, anyway I noticed on the front of the package above my address it had ‘hearst magazines’ printed on the package, so obviously my thoughts then were that this package had been sent from a magazine or something along those lines. I then became slightly excited as I realised that I must’ve won something, although i didn’t know exactly what i could’ve won. I knew i had entered a few competition, as I do when i’ve got nothing better to do and of course, in the hope of winning. So, when i proceeded to open the package and found makeup, I was really happy… i mean free makeup? And, it being danity doll (by Nicola Roberts) I was pleased as I had never tried anything of hers before and it was unlikely that I would purchase anything from this brand as I had heard it is aimed towards paler complexions. Anyway, I received:
An Eyeshadow Base in 001
An Eyeshadow in 001
An Eyeliner pencil in 004
A Lipgoss in 001
I am mostly excited about the Eyeshadow base as I have not got round to purchasing an eye primer as of yet and for now I am going to use the Eyeshadow base when i wear Eyeshadow. All of the products are really good quality and well pigmented and I love the packaging so I am really, really happy about that surprise.
Another thing, I vaguely remembered entering a competition to win this makeup but i couldn’t remember which magazine… so after awhile of thinking i went onto the Christmas edition of the Company weekly edit and of course I found my answer, I must have been one of 100 people who received this makeup set as I had entered while I was bored on Christmas break from school, of course.
Apart from winning the amazing Mac quad from Flora (thank you thank you thank you) just before Christmas and now this, I had never won any competitions in my life despite entering what I think is a lot in my opinion.
I recently ordered from http://www.fragrancedirect.co.uk and i received my order yesterday. I have been ordering make up from this website for awhile now and it usually never disappoints. This website stocks a wide range of make-up brands and not only drugstore brands. The products are always a lot cheaper on fragrancedirect than the prices you can find in shops such as superdrug and boots. Just because the prices are lower however, doesn’t mean that the make-up is lower quality, it is as good as you would find it in the drugstore.
I ordered 6 products and this came to a total of £19.94 excluding delivery, amazing right? The products were:
L’Oreal Colour Riche Serum Lipstick (in the shade: Radiant Rose S 103) – £1.99
Rimmel Colour Mousse Eyeshadow (in the shade: Black Pearl 010) – £1.99
Rimmel Natural Bronzer (in the shade: Sun Dance 027) – £2.99
Urban Decay Hypnotic Colours Nail Polish Set – £9.99
Bourjois Bio Detox Anti Puffiness Concealer (in the shade: 02) – £1.99
Body Collection Liquid Eyeliner (in the shade: Black) – 99p
I was amazed that i saved £12.51 on the urban decay nail set as it’s usual price is £22.50. I didn’t buy this for myself though (sadly) as I am giving this as a gift to someone for christmas.
I have tried out all of the products that i bought for myself except the rimmel mouse eyeshadow and i love the bourjois concealer is really, really good and i love the shade of the rimmel lipstick as it is a vibrant pink rose, i think it suits my skin tone well.
