A Cliche Pastel Springtime Post!

This was what I wore to see The Hunger Games film numero uno this week. (Mini-review: I quite liked it! Not as good as the book but kinda nice in a simplified way.)

I used my Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette (Vanilla, Tainted, Omen and Deep End) over their Eden Primer Potion. Kryolan blue gel liner in the waterline and Fyrinnae Winter Again on the inner corner. The Balm Cabana Boy blush and a MAC cremesheen glass from the Daphne Guinness collection (pale pink) finished the look. Foundation was my old trusty Laura Mercier oil-free tinted moisturiser with a drop of my Illamasqua Skinbase foundation in it (as the former is too light and the latter WAY too dark for me).

This look I wore to work. I wanted a soft look that felt really comfortable and easy to wear. This is Butterfly Dreams pigment from the Vera collection (used wet with water-based mixing medium from MAC pro) with a little Omega, Texture and Charcoal Brown in the crease. Lips are Butterfly Dreams plushglass over the top.

Ok, not strictly pastels but quite au naturel and Spring-y. This has been my go-to make-up since I discovered liquid eyeliner when I was 15; a decade of love...only now I have Omega eyeshadow for soft eyebrow filling and eye-crease defining. Lips are Prolongwear lip pencil in Absolutely It with Butterfly Dreams plushglass on top.

Posting regularly seems easy again, I'm on it! :) I finally ordered some Face and Body foundation and Fix+ etc for my kit. Exciting stuff.

    I didn't read the book but I likied the movie. Maybe I will buy the trilogy.
