Simple work EOTD and Illamasqua Raindrops

Just a simple work look using Jealous Jordana eyeshadow and Cabana Boy blush from The Balm. The blue on my lid is Hi-Def Cyan pigment from MAC (another Cosmetic Company Outlet gift from my mum!) pressed over aqua blue HD cream liner from Kryolan. The pigment is very similar to the matte blue I got from Inglot (371) but as it's a pigment I feel it's more versatile (Cyan blue liquid-eyeliner using mixing medium will be a doddle with this, for example... no crusty eyeshadow pan!)
It stayed this intense all day.

My nails this weekend were Illamasqua Raindrops. The glass flecks were really pretty, but I had used a coat of Mavala grey I received free with Elle magazine this month (I subscribed for free Liz Earle cleanse and polish a couple of months ago) and I think that may have darkened the grey and obviously, as I used less coats of the sheer jelly Raindrops, lessened the glass flecks of glitter showing through.

  1. Blue shadow is so lovely with your eye colour!

  2. Love the eyeshadow! That's impressive that it stayed vibrant like that all day. Do you use an eyeshadow primer? I find I have to or it gets all "crease-y", and even if I do, it doesn't last like that!!

  3. Ooh what a pretty look! I love Raindrops, I just got it in the sale :D

  4. Meredith - I love blue right now. A bit too much.

    Vintage make-up - Thanks :) I especially like navy and bright blues.

    Vulcan butterfly - It looked so squishy and gummy. I love the glass flakes.

    swanntastic - I use Urban Decay primer potion in Eden. I've never tried Too Faced Shadow Insurance, the elf ones etc. I do have a paint pot from MAC but find that creases on me. I have quite oily lids.

    Lillian - Yay! I got it 25% off with a code a few months ago and only just tried it out. I want Shrapnel also.
