Today’s makeup: Haight

Here’s a really easy way to make bright colour wearable – pair it with a neutral shadow!

Sorry for the lack of posts lately, life has been insanely hectic – coursework deadlines and real life getting in the way. I finally had time to photograph my makeup on Friday morning, so technically this is Friday’s makeup – you don’t want to see me today, I’m wearing PJs, eating crisps and playing Tony Hawk. Merry Christmas!

Today’s makeup: smoky gold

I’m obsessed with Goldilux. It just looks fantastic, whatever you do with it. Also I dropped it on the floor the other day and there’s still loads left (and my carpet is a tiny bit gold and sparkly). This one’s a bit smudgy, a bit smoky, a lot sparkly!

Also apparently it’s really difficult to take a well-lit picture when the sun’s shining in my room, so… sorry!

Today’s makeup: Matte emerald green

I’ve been so useless with posting. Work, uni and general under-the-weather-ness got the better of me and I just haven’t had a chance to do interesting makeup!

Even though the most interesting place I’ve been today is Sainsbury’s, I figured I’d play with the Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 palette which I LOVE.

Today’s makeup: Urban Decay NYC Book of Shadows III

Sorry for the lack of updates recently – I’ve moved back up to Manchester and been crazy busy with work! I’ve got a couple of new products to review so expect a few posts this week. In the meantime, here’s today’s makeup, using my oft-forgotten Urban Decay NYC Book of Shadows III.

I’ve used this combination before and found that both shadows fade throughout the day (more so than other UD shadows) so this time I put Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy underneath and it stayed put. That stuff is magical! Someone on Reddit recommended it for use under UD’s glittery eyeshadows to prevent fallout – genius.

The colours are a bit more vibrant than the photos show – my camera likes to wash people out!

Today’s makeup: Barracuda

Here’s a makeup look I did using the Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeshadow Pencil in Barracuda as well as my old faithful Naked Palette. I wore this out on Friday for a night out in Brighton during which karaoke and crazy dancing to metal music happened, and it stayed put wonderfully.

blurry pictures ahoy!

Today’s makeup: Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette

This is a look I put together using the Sugarpill Heartbreaker Palette, quite similar to an older FOTD I did (but better executed!). I love the peacock hues you can get from these colours, and they blend so well – the lovely royal blue/dark purple on the outer eye is a blend of Velocity and 2am.

Today’s makeup: Naked Palette

I’m not even going to bother extolling the virtues of the Urban Decay Naked Palette because you already know how amazing it is. Here’s a look I did which is really wearable and perfect for daytime. If you want to make it a bit more dramatic for night, you could add some darker shading round the edges and line your eyes with some black kohl to take it up a notch.
