    At least you realise that you have hooded eye as a novice. Took me forever to figure out my crease. I have many a fold in my crease. I think this FOTD beautiful. The colours lining and all. All I can suggest is experiment. No one will know you face better than yourself!

  2. If at first you don’t succeed eh? Thanks for your comment Deborah!

    This look is lovely ..really sleek. I have hooded eyes too (Boo!), so annoying. There are YT vids for hooded eye make up which I’ve seen but not yet watched.

  4. So beautiful!! I need to try these shimmer cubes.

  5. Hi Michelle, You must! They’re so velvety and beautifully pigmented.
