Bright and Sunny FOTD

This look was based on one of the first times I had used Sugarpill Dollipop. I used to use a 2mp camera phone to take pictures of my eye make-up (about 1 1/2 years ago?) so don't judge me...they were only for my own records!

I wanted to do a similar colour combination today only better blended and more cohesive! Previously I had used Buttercupcake, Flamepoint and Dollipop and so today I did. But instead of dark green glitter liner I used green under the eye and green on the waterline, too.


Face: Clinique Almost Make-up shades 1 and 3 (mixed... yeah, don't ask)
Illamasqua Rich Liquid foundation in 140 (mixed with the tinted moisturizer and used as concealer)
Set with Clinique translucent powder
Contoured with MAC VV Darkly My Dear blush
Highlighted with Sleek light contour/highlight powder
Brows were filled with MAC Stud brow pencil

Eyes: UDPP
NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk (on lid and under brow)
Fyrinnae Banana Mochi (inner corner)
Sugarpill eyeshadows in Buttercupcake, Flamepoint, Dollipop and Tipsy (bottom inner third)
Inglot eyeshadows in DS 496 (shimmery white highlight under brow), matte 362 (lighter pink to help blend Dollipop), AMC 74 (raspberry red to darken the crease ever so slightly) and matte 384 (grass green on outer lower lid).

Liner: Illamasqua Precision ink in Abyss
Inglot AMC matte liners in 84 and 85 (yellow and light green).

Mascara: a generous three coats of Boujois Volumizer (step one, step two, step one!)

Lips: Inglot sleeks cream in 97 (milky pale pink lip gloss)

I have decided to sweep my fringe to the side once more because Bettie fringes are a bitch to keep trimmed and to keep neat during the day. It's a bit messy at the minute, but I'm sure I'll figure out what I'm doing soon (or at least, here's hoping).

Edit: I forgot how my nails are powder blue with glitter top coat because of Easter weekend! I completed the rainbow! (I have been watching too much Adventure Time I think... who types things like that when they're 24?!)
