As stated in my previous post, I've not been around for the last week. A combination of work, sleep and just having other things I needed to do like food shopping and seeing family.
This look is from earlier in the week but I said in my Glossybox post, that I really wanted to try the Micabella pigment with a smokey eye. Since I didn't have a lot of time before I went out that's what I opted for. Quick and easy!
VIVO Perfect Skin Primer.
No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation - Calico.
HD Brows - Dark Brown (Vamp palette)*.
Illamasqua Cream Blush - Sob.
M.A.C Mineralize Skin Finish Natural - Light.
Urban Decay Primer Potion.
Micabella Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow - Deep Secrets (all over lid, lower lashline)*.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow - Virgin (brow highlight), Creep (crease).
Dior Blackout Mascara.
M.A.C Lipstick - Viva Glam Gaga.
I'm one of those that most of the time, doesn't know when to leave well alone. I had my eyes looking lovely, even with just the one colour but I thought adding something darker to the crease would make it a little nicer. Nope. I really hated how it looked and tried my best to blend it so it wasn't as visible but what can you do?
Looking at the pictures it isn't all that bad and I highly doubt it was in person. But we're our own worst critics and because it didn't look how I envisioned it, I was a little miffed.
I'm rather liking recently, the way brown and gold tones warm up the colour of my eyes and stop them from looking close to black.
