FOTD: NYX EMU

I've been so excited to try my new NYX eye shadows from Kimmei but have been so busy with stuff. Last Saturday, I eventually had time to play with them and this was I came up with. I've opted for brown smokey eyes adapting the Nelson Beau's technique. Sorry guys, I didn't had chance to take more photos (rushing to take Sam to his karate class) but promise I will next week during my day off.


Sam's FOTD special appearance ha ha ha! Trust this little boy!

Gracie said...

Thank you Shen! Yeah, he's a child a mother could only be proud of ;)... I think you could wear red lipstick with almost anything. It's soooo versatile!

I miss you too, sis Nikki! When are ever gonna come online again? Yeah, my NYX eye shadows? I love them? The colours are intense and would definitely give the designer make up run for their money! ;)

nice one gracie...love the looks, and the red lips. how come i can't pull off reds like u?

Gracie said...

Thank you sis Nic! Brown, I guess is my comfort zone :P so is red lipstick :O

Thank you sis Jheng! Of course you can pull off a red lipstick you just don't do it because you think it won't look right on you but of course it would! I can actually imagine you in your dark EMU (specially your Heatherette trio one) with red lipstick. C'mon! Let's have a look at it! YOu don't even have to go out wearing it! Just take the photo and show us ;). I bet you'd look even more sophisticated :)
