PHOTODUMP - Looks From Last Week (Part II)

I don't really know what to say at the minute. Not really into the make-up I've been wearing; when it's dramatic it's not big enough. Yeah, I think that sums it up. Lacklustre. If you follow me on twitter you know I have been having horrible wisdom tooth problems in my lovely week off as well. Ack. Not an excuse, but a fact.

I'm a bit behind on posting, these are some miscellaneous looks I wore in the last couple of weeks...

Quick Sizzle lipstick, with Industrial Pearlglide eyeliner and Reflect's Blue pressed on top. Florida cremeblend blush.

Shifting Sands from the Vera crushed metals (I think it's from a stack called Aloha) on the lid, with Copperplate and Embark in the crease and Brule to blend. Up the Amp lipstick with Butterfly dreams plushglass on top. I'm practicing using Blacktrack as liner, I really like it actually (now that I'm getting the hang of gel liner).

Raindrops crushed metallic pigment from Butterfly Party stack. Scene eyeshadow in the crease. I tried to do a double wing effect and it didn't really work. I had wanted the Blacktrack liner to be more straight as well (not flicking up at the corner). This is what I mean by not dramatic enough. I did this too small. Also, I added some Fascinating eye kohl to the gap between liner and eyeshadow and that really kicked it up a notch. But then I didn't get a photo. D'oh!

Strawberry Patch crushed metal with a couple of colours from Call me Bubbles and Colour Added Shop/Cook MAC quads.

Meh. Thiiiiiiiiiiiiings can only get betterrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...

  1. The lip with Up the Amp is gorgeous! And I love the lashes on the first one. I hate it when I get in a funk - but everything here is gorgeous, stop being hard on yo'self.

  2. These are all really pretty hun, I totally understand why you feel the way you do. I was so put off after I had chicken pox it will get better I promise

    Anyway these are all super gorgeous you silly lady

  3. The cat eye on the inner and outer corners came out awesome. I never did really get the hang of gel liner, I just stick to my liquids.

  4. Oh you pull off Up the Amp so much better than I ever could. We all have lacklustre makeup times... You're looking gorgeous, though, not lacklustre at all :D

  5. Oh my goodness, these looks are just lovely. I especially love Quick Sizzle in the first look!

  6. The pinkish wine lips look so gorgeous and they have been beautifully painted.I like the various shades in the eye lids also which add a different dimension to the look.mineral foundation
