FOTD – Breaking out my pigments!

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 20 - 2010

WOAHHHHHHHHH too much blush.

Aside from that, I was really pleased with how this turned out!  I was looking forlornly into my pigment drawer thinking that I don’t use them enough and although it was 6pm in the evening and I had just done my first DIY home facial (courtesy of Liz… yeah, we’re on first name terms innit) I decided to have a little play anyway.  Was that the longest sentence in the blogosphere?  Possibly.

I really need to start using more than 2 eyeshadow shades, I really enjoyed playing!

    Very, very pretty- i’m into those kinda warm colours at the mo, as I bought the Sleek Sunset palette recently. I have quite a few loose shadows/ pigments, and I hardly ever wear them, you’ve inspired me!

  9. Thanks everyone!

    @Jules – Yes! My first BB Cream! I picked one that was too sheer though :( I’ve got a Skin Food one to try next, I love how they feel on my skin

    Hi Charlotte! I’ve been sneaking peeks at (read: spending FAR too long reading through) your blog for a few weeks now, originally because you’ve got the same colouring as me and I figured that your swatches might actually have a hope in hell of looking similar on my pale skin…. then I got addicted to your snarkiness :-)

    Just wanted to agree with everyone else’s comments – lovin’ the look! I don’t normally leave comments but felt compelled to disagree that you’d used too much blusher – I think you look glowy, and your eyebrows in particular look FAB!

    Keep up the good work – the uber-fair, snarky females among us demand it!

    Well aren’t you gorgeous! The metallic look and color scheme of your eyes is especially nice. How do you like the BB Shimmer Brick? I’m tempted, but I’m afraid it’ll be too glittery!

    This is GORGEOUS.
    I’ve been reading your blog for a few months ago, and I always love looking at your EOTD’s and FOTD’s, since I have a similar eye shape to you. The looks you do are always so pretty, and really give me an idea of what I could do.
    I really hope you never stop blogging.
