I feel like I rarely do FOTD's any more and I always say I'm going to change that but I never do. I'm my own worst critic and if there's the tiniest thing I don't like in a look then I won't post it. Plus I hate my skin but hopefully that'll change now I finally have a Clarisonic.

Back along when I posted about having the Urban Decay Anniversary palette I got quite a few requests on here and Tumblr from people who were stuck with combinations.

I've never been one to wear pinks on my eyes, I've only done a handful of looks with them as their difficult to get right. You can just end up looking like you have tired/irritated eyes otherwise.

It's wonderfully Spring-like out today (so much for snow, eh?) so I wanted something soft but still colourful. It's been a while since I played with colour instead of just opting for the easy option of my Naked palette. Whilst there is some beautiful neutrals in the Anniversary palette I was long overdue a splash of colour.

GOSH Velvet Touch Foundation Primer.
M.A.C Matchmaster Foundation - 1.

I'm currently rocking the most retina searing neon orange polish I have ever seen. I've always eyed it up whenever I've been in Sally's and I finally picked it up last week. It is amazing but doesn't fully come across in photos of my nails on their own.

I tried tightlining with a gel liner for the first time and it'll be the last I think. I stabbed myself in both eyes and ended up having watery eyes for ages, looked like I'd popped all my eyeshadow on and then decided to have a good cry. Not cute.

I've been messing around with photo sizes/column widths so do excuse the fact that if you're looking at old posts the photo sizing is going to look a mess until I can get round to sorting them all out. I will get there slowly but surely.

What are your favourite colours to use for Spring?
