Cosy in my Rut!

Hello Everyone :)

As I mentioned in my previous post, this week I had been experimenting with lots of different coloured shadows and it made me realise something...I'm quite cosy in my dark eye make up rut!! As much as I try to make colour work, I will always come back to dark eyes...




(I'm wearing Urban Decays Mushroom and Ecsatasy all over the lid and perversion in the outer corner and the crease)

I'd love to be someone who wears electric blues and greens but I can't help it, blacks, greys and dark purples feel like home :D. Also, look at my poor, poor skin - I don't know what's happened lately but it seems to be having a bit of a tantrum!

Do you all have any make up habits you can't seem to break? My other habit is wearing too much blusher - it's a habit I shared with all my gorgeous best friends at school. So much so another group of girls used to call us 'The Blusher Girls' ha ha ha!! I can't help it, I love rosey cheeks!!

Lots of Love
Nicola

  3. Mushroom is my fave colour in the book of shadows. It looks lovely on you! Awh no for bad skin. I bought a tea tree night gel from Boots today which is supposed to help skin!

    Haha, I think I wear too much blusher but I love it - probably my second fave makeup item! xx

  4. I meant to add that I also use the turquoise colour from BoS, I think its called 'flipside' on my lower lash line. It just adds a bit of colour! I'm brave enough to use it on the lid! xx

  6. I have the same problem! I always wear blacks and taupes, and greys.. sometimes purples or a little pink, but never any real color! I've just ordered a bunch of brightly colored eyeshadows... some teals, peaches, and dark pinks! I hope I actually wear them!

    BTW, I wore perversion and mushroom out to the mall today!

    and you look gorgeous (as always) ! :)

  7. @Pyxiee Mushroom is def my fave too! It's gorgeous! I have tried everything on my skin I was thinking of getting pure tea tree oil from Holland and Barrat and seeing if that does anything! Oh and also flipside would be lovely on the lower lash line!

    @Tennille Thanks Luv! I think I will still be doing this kind of eye when i'm old and wrinkly ha ha

    @Caitlin Be brave and wear them! Ha I really did try but just didn't feel very comfortable...and thank you luv :)

  8. I love this look! I have been trying to create this look with MAC's Knight Divine and Electra. I wear too much blusher as well but I really like the rosy cheeks look.

  10. Gorgeous eye shadow! I always think I wear too many browns, gold, neutrals but why fix what ain't broke? I know what you mean about skin-mine has been playing up for the past few weeks but it seems to be getting back on the straight and narrow. I think I had too much chocolate at Xmas! x x

  15. Gorgeous makeup there! I love purples too. I think my habit would be the opposite of yours. I tend not to wear enough makeup. Sometimes, it could be due to laziness, other times an issue of applying too little. It's sad, I know.
