Red Eyes and Lilac/Glitter/Matte Nails.

I look proper grumpy in these photos! Mardy bum! Think it's just tiredness though.

Here I used my usual face products and a touch of The Balm blusher in Cabana Boy.

Eye Products - UDPP in Eden, Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy on the lid with Barry M Dazzledust 84 (Cherry Red) patted on top. Inner corner was a dab of Urban Decay's Virgin from the Naked palette. To darken the crease I used Inglot gel liner in 79 (red), topped with Sugarpill eyeshadow in Love+ (matte red) and Inglot AMC 74 eyeshadow (glittery raspberry red) in the outer-v. I blended using Inglot 352 (matte skintone). My usual Boujois liquid liner and Urban Decay Perversion (blackest black) eye pencil to tightline.

I believe I also highlighted my cheekbones with Benefit Highbeam (from a free sample). Doesn't seem all that effective if you ask me.

My nails this weekend are Color Club Fashion Addict (the not so holo version :( ) topped with Essence Circus Confetti glitter polish and Essence Matt Topcoat. I don't usually get comments on my nails but many people complimented this one at work. I believe it was three whole people. Wowww.

  5. I don't like Highbeam for cheeks, great for smaller areas like cupids bow, though. I really need to steal your matte glittery/flaky nails, they look SO cool :D
