Zazu inspired EOTD + a Color Club holo NOTD

This Zazu from the Lion King inspired eye just happened to go well with my planned outfit (red cardi + yellow belt + blue highwaist skinny jeans). So here it is...

Eyebase - UDPP and NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk.
Eyeshadows - Bamboo (skintone) and Summer Breeze (matte light blue) from Sleek Mediteranean palette, NARS Rated R duo (periwinkle blue half), Inglot Yellow 474 (with glitter) and Orange AMC 51.
Eyeliner - Boujois clubbing liner intense (black, top lid), Inglot AMC gel liner in 84 (yellow, on waterline and flicked out to the side).
Mascara - Rimmel Lash Accelerator in Black (now this has dried out a little bit I really love it!)
Face - Laura Mercier oil-free tinted moisturizer in Porcelain, Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer in Light (I finally bought this and it seems as good as they say it is - decided on Light because Fair looked more cool toned, and the peachyness of this one seems to help blank out my dark circles, but I might end up buying Fair for the winter). I set my face (not my under eyes) with my usual Clinique translucent powder.
Blush - I used Posie tint under my powder (you guessed it, I got this free with Glamour magazine and it stained the back of my hand for two days!) with a little MAC Wonder Woman l/e blush in Amazon Princess to help it last (which apparently was un-needed!)

My younger brother just finished his Art Foundation at Uni and is going to take an Illustration degree next year. I wore this to his final show... with matching shoes!  (I got these Miss L Fire shoes months ago in a sale on Amazon and only just got around to wearing them. They make me happy). We had Pizza Hut after, it was awesome (free salad was a genius idea they just had).

Is it mad that I have my eye on yet more shoes from the Office sale?

P.S My mani this weekend has been Color Club Worth the Risque, which is very holo under flurescent lights and quite holo in the sun. In these pictures, it's in the evening sun. It only chipped after four days wear, and I was at a till with lots of small change counting to do for two of those days. I'm pretty happy with this one. One coat of Essie Fill the Gap and two coats of the colour with a coat of Essie Good to Go on top.

    Lydia - I do think maybe my camera is lying a little bit! But Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer is my new favourite, it's true.

  6. Love the Zazu-inspired eye look you did. So creative with bold colours! :D

    And those shoes are absolutely killer! So unique!
