Mermaid Sashimi


My sister always scolds me when I edge near the shadows in MAC, Boots and Inglot and then insists that I "have way too many shadows and never use them!". Amen Sista. That is too true. I have a huge pile of assorted shadows that I have failed to depot and that incidently come in a serious array of colours. I always opted for the mad colours when purchasing shadows, god knows why, because as of late I have been seriously embracing the neutral eye or an eye look of many browns. I find Benefit's Naked Palette to be scrumptious, albeit a little sparkly for my taste, but I have found myself to be reaching for those wacky colours in my collection recently.

I tend to switch back and forth, and when I feel like the shocking blues and purples in my collection are being neglected, I'll quickly pick them up and use them for a random look like this one here. I'm quite fond of the combination of MAC's Newly Minted, Revlon's Venetian Blue and the purple shadow from the Sleek Bohemian palette, and have used this combo on a number of occasions. The shades are all matte however, so I do find that a subtle wash of something glimmery takes the harshness away.

I've been consistently using my Bourjois Healthy Mix in 52 on my face, blended out with the Inglot Stipple Brish. On top, a swash of MAC MSF in Light Med and Benefit's Coralista, finished with NYC's Lip Plumper Gloss in Pink Champagne.
