Indescribable colour

This is what my nails looked like last week. I really don’t know how to describe the colour, but I like it. And I think the black and white confetti is a nice touch.

Those dark red lips

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. A dark red lip always looks fabulous with a black and white outfit in my opinion.

Not completely satisfied

Here’s the make-up I wore Thursday January 28. I wanted to wear the NYX Prismatic eye shadow in Fireball. I think the eye make-up looked better in real life, but I’m not completely satisfied with it. I want to play around some more with this eye shadow a day where I have more time to do my make-up.

Beautybay haul

I placed an order on Beautybay.com about a month ago and received the parcel about two weeks later. Here’s what I purchased:

When I saw this Zoeva En Taupe eye shadow palette I knew that it was just the palette for me. I love taupes and cool-toned shadows, and this palette is so beautiful. The shadows have great pigmentation and they blend very well. I would love to own more Zoeva palettes.

I’ve been wanting to try the Makeup Geek blushers (and eye shadows) for a long time, so I decided to order two shades + a Z-palette to keep them in. The shades I’ve got are Spell Bound and Bliss, and I love them. They’re so pigmented, and I’ve been wearing them a ton since I received them.

The last item I ordered was this Morphe eye shadow brush. It’s number M511 and I really like it. I would love to try out more brushes and products from Morphe.

Bright and glowy

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. Just as the dress, this make-up look is quite summery, but I just felt like wearing something bright and glowy.

Summer dress for colder weather

Here’s what I wore Wednesday January 27. I hadn’t worn this dress in ages, and even though it might be more of a summer dress, I just made it a bit more appropriate for the colder weather. I really wish it was summer though, or at least spring.
