FOTD – Dior Holiday 2009

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 9 - 2009

Help, get me a Nanny!

My beautiful little girl was up at 5am this morning, team lark all the way.  I am exhausted, I have 5 million Christmas Cards to write and post, 7000 presents to purchase, approx 3000 posts to write and instead I’m playing with my Dior Holiday 2009 Collection.  At least I have my priorities straight right?

DIORfotd

Thanks to the fact that it’s now DARK in England all the freakin’ time (who shifted Europe 500 miles closer to the North Pole without telling anyone) I have to rely on my flash gun more than I’d like.  Which makes for crappier, starker pictures and washes out the makeup a bit.

Also, thanks to my hooded eyelids… you can only actually see the eyeliner… *whistles and wonders why she bothered*

~ Lips are BarryM Lip Paint in Lavender
~ Cheeks are The Body Shop Trio in Cool Dusk
~ Eyelashes are Rimmel Sexy Curves & Mavala Double Lash I reckon

Gonna attempt a better photo of the eyeshadow quint/liner… this is rubbish for seeing what they actually look like!

    LOL! I had a 5:30am wake up call off my two year old, not nice, hehe. The darkness is depressing lately :( It’s like sunset when I fetch my eldest from school.

    You do have your priorities right. Playing with makeup is relaxing, I do it when I’m really stressed! It looks lovely! :)

    Too dark to even see my monitor in South London. Crap, isn’t it? Makeup looks lovely though, and I have the same problem with the hooded eyelids :(

    Wow I quite like it! The Dior pallets are a favourite of my mums, she loves high end makeup. Lol, she is soooo scared that a low quality product will ruin her skin forever and ever – as she phrases it.

    My flash gun is actually completely broken, as my sister decided she wanted to use it… and it all went spiraling downwards from there. Boo me. What I’m actually doing, is just taking pictures on the weekends… because then I’m up in time to see daylight…. just! Aha ;)

    Yes, dark days are certainly no fun. I’m only across the Channel, so I hear you!

    I really really like this look on you- I know we can’t see much of the eyeshadows, but the whole look is just really pretty- me like!! Know what you mean about the darkness- it’s so deceptive, cos I’m at work and I look out the window and I think, yay it’s nearly home time, and the it’s about 3 o’clock! lol
