An EOTD that until now I did not know matched my hair and scarf! Ha!

I got some new MAC goodies from the CCO on Friday. It was sweet. They had superslick liquid liners (all except black), coloured zoom lashes (I didn't like the black version of this when I had it years ago - too wet for me, so I didn't buy), all the big bounce eyeshadows (eewww... they are even gross at reduced prices - in my opinion), a few interesting pigments (mostly smaller jars now though... boo!) and the aforementioned nail polishes. They also had lots of the Tartan Tale sets and I was torn between a pigment set and a couple of full sizers. I picked the full size... the colours were brighter and I think you all know how I feel about bright colours., yes?

This look used Shimmermoss eyeshadow, Full Force Violet pigment and my first ever CCO purchase MAC Dame's Desire eyeshadow trio. More info under the cut.

Eyeshadow base - MAC Soft Ochre paint pot, MAC (pro) chromaline in Marine Ultra (lid), Illamasqua cream pigment in Bedaub (lower lash line).
Eyeshadows - A mix of MAC Dame's Desire and Climate Blue in the crease, Royal Tour on inner corner and to blend edges (all from Royal Tour trio). Full Force Violet pigment packed onto the lid. Shimmermoss fading into Urban Decay Hijack (under lower lash). Inglot matte 352 eyeshadow to blend to brow.
Lashes/Mascara/Lashes - Blue Mister Mascara false lashes, Maybelline Great Lash mascara (black), MAC superslick liquid liner in Signature Blue.
Brows - MAC (pro) Chromaline in Marine Ultra set with Illamasqua eyeshadow in Sadist.
Face - Illamasqua Skinbase in 07 and Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer in Light set with E.L.F studio translucent powder. Contoured and highlighted with Sleek Light contour compact. Blush was Sleek Santorini.

Later on, before leaving the house for the evening, I added a pink lip using Illamasqua medium pencil in Bait and Inglot lip sleek in  number 97 (light pink).

As you may have noticed, I have over an inch of brown roots. Hoping to sort that out before posting again... argh! Hope you had a good weekend, too.
