Eyeshadow: steel blue shimmer

This look is from about a month ago, so I couldn't tell you for sure what I used in the crease and on the browbone. However, I do remember the most important bits. so yay! I know used new eyeshadows that I got at IMATS. I wanted to wear blue, but I didn't want it to bright or dark, so I opted for an icy steel-blue combo that I created by accident.

I used my Inglot AMC Eyeliner Gel in #93 (no, I still haven't worn it as intended - I just love it as an eyeshadow!) all over the lid and along the lower lashline. On top of that, I used one of Naked Cosmetics eyeshadows from the Twilight stack: #TW-05. As I said, no idea what else I used. Sorry!

Eyeshadow: antique gold shimmer

Today I have a new eyeshadow to show you guys. It's one of the Dior moussey kind of formulas in a glass pot, just like the Chanel ones. To touch with your finger, the formula feels exactly the same. The difference is the Dior ones come with a sponge-tipped applicator, while the Chanel ones come with a small synthetic brush. I found the Dior applicator pretty much useless, to be honest. It was only really good for applying the shadow along the lower lashline. Over the eyelid, use your own brush or even your fingers would work better.

Eyeshadow: birthday makeup

So here it is. A real post! I wanted to keep my birthday fairly simple, so my partner took me to dinner. He took me to my favourite pasta restaurant and it was great. I was feeling sort of lazy so I did a really easy neutral look. I used one of my favourite Make Up Store microshadows and kept the liner quite soft for a change.

Where have I been?

Hi everyone. It's been another unexpected absence for me and I apologise. I've been really busy with real life-related stuff; some of it good, some of it bad. I've still been taking photos and stuff, but I haven't had the time to post anything or have a stickybeak at what you've all been up to. Forgive me! I will be back.

It was also my birthday last week, so yet another year older. Sigh. At least I still feel like a teenager. Haha. Anyway, I promise I'll have pretties for you soon.
Olgie.
