Good afternoon lovelies!!
Been a bit of a barrage of lipstick posts on BBB lately and, i am one who likes to keep things a bit different and switch it up a bit. So today, when i was picking what i was going to wear i was very excited when i got a little bit inspired by my snake print leggings, and pulled out my
Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV.
I just think this palette is perfect for this particular look and colour selection. I haven't really mentioned it much since i did my initial post after getting it so it was about time it was given its moment of glory! I was going for a daytime look (cos it's daytime, duh) so i didn't want tons of eyeliner and wanted to let the shadow do the talking.
Face: MAC Matchmaster Foundation (shade 4.0)
BeneFit Boi-Ing Concealer (shade 2)
Sleek Contour Kit in Medium
Cheeks: FashionistA blush in Butterscotch (from my palette)
Eyes: Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV
Skimp (all over the lid)
Midnight Rodeo (in the crease with a fluffy brush and blended over slightly)
Cobra (applied right in the crease using a pencil brush, winging out slightly and along the lower lashline)
Zephyr (just in inner corners)
L'Oreal Lash Architect 4d Mascara in Black
Brows: Rimmel Single Eyeshadow in Brun Dusk
Lips: MAC Shy Girl (Cremesheen)
Avon Glimmerstick Lip Liner in Rich Ginger
|MAC Shy Girl|
I have no idea why i wasn't compelled to wear liner with this look, but i go through phases with it. Sometimes i'll go for liquid liner every day, but sometimes i don't fancy eyeliner at all. I was very pleased how Cobra came out under my lower lashes and didn't want it overshadowed by a thick black line. I did have a slight glitter fallout issue with Midnight Rodeo but nothing that a swipe of the foundation brush wouldn't fix.
Please excuse my scouse-brow.... I tidied them up a little this morning, but had no desire to launch into a full scale de-fuzzing. Its my day off after all.
All in all i'm really happy with my Snake-Inspired makeup and i just ADORE Shy Girl, nomatter what i'm wearing. Sorry if you guys were expecting something more dramatic but i just fancied something subtle, yet effective today. Off to the parents for tea later with the boy so thought i'd make a little effort at least.
What inspires your makeup?? How do you use the shades from the UD palette??
