My 100th Post!!!! Celebrating with a simple LOTD!


Celebrating with something that was one of my original plans for the blog, a LOTD.  I have not done one of these in a while, but small ting!!

Anyway, I think after purples, blues are my next favourite colour to use.  I think blue on bronze or deeper skin, especially with dark brown eyes makes your eyes pops!  Jewel toned and deep blues look best on the darkest skintones, while brighter blues (especially mixed with greens) look better on fairer and more tanned skin.

This look is really easy, two eye shadows, one brush.  Simple.

Here it goes……..

  • TFSI
  • M.A.C. eyeshadow in Birds & Berries (or any greenish blue shadow, like Blue Green pigment)
  • M.A.C. eyeshadow in Contrast (or any dark blue/navy shadow)
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide Liner in Zero (any black)
  • Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara in Very Black
  • M.A.C. 224 fluffy shader brush

The How-To…

  1. Apply TFSI all over the lid and blend upwards
  2. Using 224, apply a thin layer of Birds & Berries all over the eyelid, into the crease.
  3. Use Contrast eyeshadow on the outer crease and blend inwards.  This helps blend out the B&B shadow.  Blend in circular stokes making the heaviest application on the outer crease.
  4. Apply liner to the top lashline
  5. Apply one coat of mascara

That’s it!!!!!

M.A.C.'s Liberty of London: A review

So this limited edition collection has come out in both the US and internationally.  Here are my 2 cents.

I love the packaging, they did a good job on this one.  The white background with the floral and bird motif works really well.  Even the inside of the boxes were printed with a multi-coloured floral pattern.  For those people that like to collect limited edition packaging from M.A.C., you won’t be disappointed.

For the rest of you, this is a good collection, not great but good.  A lot of the colours are dupable, but there were a few standouts.

1) Blue India Nail Lacquer –  The message boards have been buzzing about this one for months!  A beautiful, midtone tealish blue creme with a greyed effect.  Hot!!! Would really look good as a pedicure colour.
