Sweet and Punchy..

I really love this LE colour from 'To the beach' as it compliments my hazel eyes, it IS a bit of a scary colour to wear but once you tone it down with different shades of brown it becomes quite wearable. I wore it out last night with a black skirt and top. I kept my accessories wooden and tan coloured to tie everything together.

I think it's VERY important not to go crazy with your outfit when wearing such a bright look on your eyes, as then you enter the territory of it looking cheap.



  1. Mac 'Sweet & Punchy' e/s all over the lid and slightly in the crease
  2. Mac 'Cork' e/s in the crease
  3. Mac 'Brun' to define crease and outer V.
  4. Mac 'Brun' on inner half of lower lashline and outer half of upper lash line.
  5. Benefit 'Eye Bright' on waterline, inner corners of the eye and brow bone to highlight
  6. YSL Faux Cils mascara.

FYI: With this look I wore Mac 'Peachstock' lipstick with Nars 'Sertao' blush to ensure focus was on my eye area.

Would you wear something as bright as this?

Wow, what a fantastic colour on you! Don't think it would look the same on my pale freckly skin and blue eyes though! Probably make me look ill!x

Sweet & Punchy looks like a great colour, it's good to step out of comfort zones and just go for things we normally wouldn't because the initial sight of the colour can be daunting but you've made it look real subtle and wearable

I don't usually wear colours like this unless I am heading to a party or an event. But, I love your colour combination!!! And the brown definitely toned down the green alot.

vadilucia said...

what kind of pencil liner did you use on your upper lashline? Are there any other pencil liners that you've tried that last all day, don't smudge, and that you would recommend?

paperheart said...

it looks gorgeous on you and i think it would look great for summer :) not sure if i would be brave enough to wear it though :P
just found your blog btw.. its lovely! you have a new follower :) <33

Ettie♥ said...

I usually just go for the neutrals, but I love how you toned it down with various browns! I'll definately try that. Gorgie shade, Sweet & Punchy that is.

Muhsine said...

Thank u very much :)

@vadilucia I used "Brun" e/s by Mac to line my upper outer lash line. I prefer to use gel eyeliner for something that lasts all day.
