Inspired by Lisa Eldridge's latest video I did this look for my first day back at work this weekend. I had been in Edinburgh for a couple of days. More info after the cut.
I used my Inglot orange placed in the crease first (could've used Sugarpill Flamepoint. Didn't). Darkened it up with Blackout from the UD 15th Anniversary palette. From the same palette I also used Chase (a light golden brown) on lid and Flow (peachy shimmer) on inner corner. My blush was the lovely and golden-glowy (and peachy) The Balm Hot Mama. And on my nails...
Illamasqua Whack. An orangey red. I thought it went kind of well with the eyes. Quite matchy. No matter how bad anyone else says matchy is... it makes me excited when things match! It always has. And also when things clash. I suppose I like extremes. This NOTD also means I have finally tried out all of my (so-far) 25 Illamasqua nail polishes. Phew. I think my new nail polish colour everyday phase is over (for a while at least). Next on my list is a set from Konad. I want more creativity.
Bonus Edinburgh pictures:
Outfit of the day? I wore a Warehouse dress and a Ben Sherman blazer. I thought it was kind of circussy and fit the theme.
I felt like I was collecting these round paper lightshades in our room (black arty shade) and a secret aftershow venue.(colourful, mismatched, arty shades)
This is what I went to Edinburgh for. It was worth the socially awkward ex-boyfriend reunion and 6.5 hour journey through the night... for this alone!
