Chit Chat..

Today I skimped on the eye makeup, it was just too hot to be layering on tons of shadow. I went for black winged liner to keep it simple. Today is Tuesday by the way but it's 2 o clock in the morning so technically it's Wednesday now... Uhhh there isn't enough hours in the day!


I'm always in a rush before I leave the house so hardly ever end up taking photos with "fresh" makeup, keeping with the theme these photos were taken about 12 hours after application and a hard days work hence why I look so tired. But as you can see the eyeliner is still in tact.

Here's what I'm wearing:

  • FACE: Kiehl's tinted moisturiser (medium) Mac studio finish concealer (NC30)
  • CHEEKS: Benefit Hoola, Prestige Glam tan and Mac Vanilla pigment to highlight.
  • EYES: Shu Uemera painting liner (black) L'oreal Voluminous mascara, Mac vanilla pigment to highlight.
  • Lips: Nothing, it all rubbed off! But I did have Mac Lazy Day lipstick on top of a lipliner. :(

    Note: I do like the Shu Uemera painting liner it just annoys me as when I apply it it immedietly transfers to my upper eyelid as it doesn't dry quick enough, I sometimes pat it with some 'Carbon' e/s by Mac to set it but the same thing happens. I think it's just the shape of my eyes, I powdered my eyelids, and tried using a base and it still doesn't stay put until it's properly dry which takes about 5 mintues. Although once it's set and dry it aint movin', it lasts all day with the same instense black pigment. Ehh you win some you lose some!


My belly kind of looks the same as it did a couple of weeks ago, I still don't even look pregnant unless I'm wearing a white horizontally striped top :) I'm just over 16 weeks / 4 months now and am slowly starting to get my energy back and rekindling my love for homemade Turkish food!


Today I realised I don't own a white shimmery colour to highlight the inner corners of my eyes, I immediately fixed that problem by purchasing Mac 'Crystal Avalanche' eyeshadow which is a veluxe pearl. 'Crystal Avalanche' won over 'Shroom', 'Phloof' and 'White Frost' as the texture is much softer and the colour was as bright as I wanted it to be. See a swatch below.


I don't know what's wrong lately with mascaras but anything I use doesn't give me the effect I desire. It just looks dry and clumpy ewwwww! My favourite L'oreal voluminous isn't performing as well as it used to and of course I had to fix that problem too. I repurchased the Mac Zoom Fast Lash mascara as I really enjoyed using it the last time I had it.


Are you rocking winged eyeliner in the heat, do you own a shimmery white eyeshadow and are you having problems with your mascaras?

Chit Chat over, I can go on forever but it's getting late and I need my beauty sleep! :)

Your makeup looks ice and fresh after 12 hours I wish mines look like that.

dani@callitbeauty said...

your makeup looks flawless, even after 12 hours of wear!

as for eyeliner, i have the opposite problem in that it tends to shift to my under eye area after a few hours.

also, i'm using l'oréal voluminous carbon black lately and it dried up much faster than the regular voluminous one so i think i'll change back to that.

coralista said...

Yeah I like to go with a winged liner too when it's hot or maybe just some half lashes in the corner. Your's are so perfect I'm still working on getting my eyeliner to match up nicely.

Katie said...

I love your winged eyeliner.

Heat? What heat? It snowed yesterday here in ye ol' Midwest!

P.S. I am perfectly jealous of all y'all having pleasant weather. It's only 36F here. I'm FREEZING!

Your winged eyeliner is just perfect! And your skin is just glowing, as always. I'm hopeless at doing winged liner, I always hate the result so end up smudging it with shadow instead.

EllysMakeupbag said...

You look amazing. I have been doing winged eyeliner too lately :-)

Little Rus said...

Your make up looks gorgeous 24/7, darling, but, girl, you've got to get more sleep, not just for yourself, but for the lil one, too.

Love your winged eyeliner. I'm having mascara issues too at the moment - I have so many mascaras and yet they all seem to be performing badly! x

Tubi said...

heavenrain said...

Mouldy Fruit said...

Hey darling.. I totally loved MAC's zoom fast black lash when I had it first time around.. didn't think I'd re purchase but think you are tempting me! Let's go to MAC together.. as I'm relatively well behaved when it comes to make up shopping with u :P xxx

Sweet Adeline said...

You look gorgeous!

Asiya said...

I think the "fast" mascaras have a tendency to dry out in the tube faster.

I ALWAYS wear basic white shimmery eyeshadow, my fave is MAC DazzleLight

Also, I like the Lancome Artliner and L'oreal Lineur Intense have this really great formula that kind of peels off rather than smudging, so even if you make a mistake, it's cleaner to fix.

Riham said...

Aw your belly is so cute<3 mA! I actually am really showing now, you will be shocked , it's like it grows over night! So don't worry, you will defiently get there soon!

As for Mascara, Have you tried Loreal's Voluminous Million Lashes.. I love it! Its really nice, and give you that false lash look very naturally!

Janine aka J-Ezzy @ *La Dolce Vita* said...

there is no such heat here, so no..not doing winged eyeliner in the heat! what a nice little contained bump you have there ;) and mascara is doing the same thing with me--except one step further, by transferring (like your liner) onto my lids :( glad to hear you're feeling better xx
