Happy New Year!

A new year, a new start. I hope 2012 brings everyone happiness and love, and that it is a healthy and good year for all of us around the world.

Yesterday I had some errands to run so left the house in the afternoon with this makeup and didn't have time to touch up and add some glitter *Sigh* but, I thought I would share the look with you anyway as it's still a lot nicer than my everyday look even though it was rushed.


EYES:Mac Constructivist paintpot as a base, (All Mac eye shadows) - 'Vex' on the lid, 'Coppering' in the crease and lower lashline, and 'Carbon' to add a little bit of depth on the outer V, and 'Ricepaper' to highlight. L'oreal super liner 'Black Crystals' on upper lash line, L'oreal Voluminous mascara and Max Factor liquid effect pencil on waterline.

On the brows I used the wax from Sleeks brow kit in Light and a little bit of clear Mac brow gel.


FACE: Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich foundation + creamy concealer. Keromask translucent white powder on t-zone.

CHEEKS: Benefit Hoola to contour, and Nars Super Orgasm illuminator on my cheek bones.

LIPS: Nothing, I hadn't got around to it for the photos, but later on I applied 'Creme Cup' lipstick by Mac.

*Oh how irritating is that piece of hair floating on my face*



I'm yet to use my new camera, I'm still waiting on a few bits and doing some reading! Speak soon! xXx
