FOTD – Lilac n’ Blue (an ode to Spring)

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 26 - 2011

I haven’t done a “just because” FOTD for ages!  I wanted an excuse to try out some new false eyelashes and decided to have a go at doing something a little spring like.

Anyway, here’s the look!

I’m not sure I should have combined warm lips with cool eyes though :/

Love these fluttery lashes, will do a post soon (they were a bargain!)

Awkward tilty head angle in an attempt to make the lid colour show!

Think I made it a bit too smokey for a “Spring” look really but nevermind…

Products Used

EYES – MUFE Aqua Cream #18 (lilac on lid) ♦ NARS Blue Angel Duo (matte blue in crease) ♦ Dior Flash Black (to deepen and add sparkle) ♦ Rimmel Volume Flash x10 Mascara ♦ Suqqu Brow Powder in 04 ♦ Paese Black Liquid Eyeliner ♦ Elise False Eyelashes in 079

FACE – Max Factor Xperience in Light Ivory ♦ Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Laid ♦ GA Luminous Silk Powder in #2

LIPS – Le Metier de Beaute Lip Liner in Nudite ♦ Boots 17 Mirror Shine lipstick in Beehive

Blimey, if there’s one thing I can tell from this FOTD, it’s that I have an eclectic taste in brands.

Do you make any attempts to alude to the seasons when thinking about your makeup?  I don’t normally but it was fun to play with colours that I don’t ordinarily reach for!

  4. Kathleen says:

    outstanding! ur lip color.

  5. Rachel Neill says:

    I agree, lip colour is a must buy. I always look silly with fake eyelashes, I’ve tried lash extensions too, just not me.

  6. Lillian says:

    You look Beautiful 🙂

  7. sara says:

    You look lovely! I wonder what a bluey pink lippie would look like with those eye colours?

  8. blovetbeauty says:

    oh my your hair in the first pic
    getting nice and long
    dont you go and cut it!! xxxxxx

    What a lovely look! I like the combo of warm and cool- in fact, I genuinely get the most compliments when I wear navy around my eyes, combined with peachy blush and lips. I think my colouring must be more similar to yours than I thought, as the colours have the same flattering effect on you x

  13. liloo says:

    i forgot to answer the bit about seasons. ok i’ll be honest, didnt read ANYTHING the first time round. i am not dictated by seasons. in fact i like to do pretty much the other way round, bright ass colours in winter, and dark stuff in summer. glitter all year round as well .

  14. PinkySpanish says:

    Whaaaat? Why are you looking so extra sexy in these pics? I love the lashes on you and I’m into the peach lip and cool eyes. Gorgeous all around.

  15. Vijaya says:

    I’m like… jealous of your pretty. =]

  16. Kimberlee says:

    I have been pondering getting MUFE aqua cream #18 for a while now… you made me want to get it.

    also, you look beautiful.

  17. Robyn says:

    I do think of colours in terms of ‘spring colours,’ i.e., pastels, but I don’t wear them according to season if that makes sense. The peach lip is beeeeautiful!

  18. Kat says:

    You look so pretty here 🙂 I find it hard to get blue eyeshadow to not look 1980s on me, but you’ve definitely succeeded in achieving a lovely modern look.

  19. Jules says:

    Very nice! I like the contrast between lips and eyes; matchy-match makeup can get so routine.

  20. Amanda says:

    wow, you look so gorgeous!! the eyes are perfect on you!

  21. stacie says:

    I don’t think it’s too smoky for spring.. I think you look beautiful

  22. This makeup looks so flattering on you and you’ve definitely lost weight! 🙂 x

  23. Nazneen says:

    Such a pretty look! I love the warm lips with the eyes – it’s much more modern than a cool pink would be. The colours are so soft and muted, it reminds me of watercolours. Lovely! x

  24. Geek Faerie says:

    This look is so very lovely! The whole thing works beautifully. The lip gives you that nude/neutral look with a hint of color. The eyes are fabulous, smoked and sparklie! And those lashes! OMG I want those lashes!!! You look marvelous my dear!

  25. this is absolutely beautiful! such a pretty spring look. i always love your FOTDs but this is an easy favorite 🙂

  26. Tina says:

    Makeup looks great, but YOU look heaps better!!!! :)))

    (*better than the pretty makeup, that is, just read the comment and sounds like it came out a little wrong)!
