Looks: Pink Eyes

Pink  is one of my favourite eye shadow hues out there. For a natural pared back look I go for matte and nude, for an evening out a bright vibrant pop.

DSCN0593The pink in this ELF palette is shimmer central, I love working this into a smokey eye. My dark green eyes are the perfect combo with a pink smokey eye. This is the best for going out!

My daily eye look is a little bit sixties and adding this Urban Decay eye shadow in ABC Gum is the perfect soft matte edition. This is such a light nude that I add a little uplifting socket colour. Pat the Urban Decay pink all over the lid then go into the socket with a shimmer eyeshadow in a similar colour, maybe the L’oreal Colour Appeal – Platinum Beige.

DSCN0595Most of my eye shadows are baked so to work with a cream shadow is something I’m still getting to grips with. Cargo Cosmetics – Suited To A Tea. The pallete double ended brush is great. The defined end is great for precision application, I’ve worked a pink eyeliner into my makeup with the colour Macaroon. Or the larger end for an all over eye shadow.

DSCN0598I think I may dabble in a bit of purple soon. Hope I don’t fall into the trap of the lilac 90’s vibe.

On the left we have two mirrored boxes which contain my hair ties and clips (gift)// bunny lamp (gift) //jewellery box (Home Sense)//my favourite coin purse ( Lulu Guinness)// Cornish Piskie. I’m a definite jewellery horder, so I’ve put off buying a jewellery box for ages because i have so much of it. This isn’t even half of my collection but what can I say, I fell in love.

The right is totally my favourite side, I love looking at the bright bloom of the flowers with the dark wood vase, and the orange frames.
