SPRING MAKE UP AND ATTEMPT TO CREATE A SPRING LOOK

GOODBYE WINTER BLUES HELLO COLOURFUL SPRING!!!

I'm already getting feed up of cold winter and I can't wait for it to get warmer soon. In the past 2 weeks that I've been on my annual leave, I've never even been bothered much about putting my usual make up. I've been goind out wearing foundation, powder, eyebrows (I just draw them ;)) and a pale lipgloss. I haven't been bothering myself much about eye colours and blushers and I guess it's because it's always miserable outside.

So...! Since my bf has invited me (or was it me who invited myself?) to join him for lunch today, I thought I'd make an effort to do something a little cheerful and came up with ideas of wearing spring colours. This season, green, orange, yellow and purple are in so I thought, I'll have a go at it.

Below are a few items of make up I bought last week.



Benefit Concealer... Lyin' Eyes. I'm happy with the coverage it gives me and it's dead easy to control when using it.



Revlon Spring Eyeshadows. Make A Sheen

Pretty Colours

My attempt to create a spring look using Revlon Make a Sheen eyeshadow in Espresso (Like express yourself), Elleana Lipgloss (from Shen), top from Oasis (sale) and waistcoat from Karen Millen (sale). Hit or miss? You'll be the judge

WARNING: FROM THIS POINT IS PURE CAMWHORING ;)

























I barely wore eye make up in the past 2 week and it felt weird doing it again. I've only managed a 3 and a half hour sleep (I chatted to sis Nikki until 1.30am and woke up at 5 to get ready to take my son to school and guess what?... I chatted to sis Nikki again when I woke up ha ha ha!) so I looked really really tired but I think my new Benefit concealer helped.
Oh! I've had my hair done as well hence the dark side of me ha ha ha! My hair colour this time is darker than my natural but never mind, it'll soon fade ha ha ha!

Oh sis Nikki! Thank you! :) Indeed you know me very well! I'm fed up of wrapping myself on thick coats ha ha ha! My hair honestly is a lot darker than my natural colour and the cold winter season makes it very dry :( Got hair mask on at the moment ha ha ha!
