Pink Glam Eyes & Lips Combination

You know that feeling when you finish watching the finale of a TV series? Like something died inside you? Ya, that's the feeling I'm feeling these days - after I finished watching The Missing. It's such a brilliant show with an ending that still haunts me days later. Do watch it if you're into mystery.

So....if you're wondering what makeup I wore on Valentine's Day, this is it. I didn't get time to click photos that day, so I recreated the look. Well.... just eyes & lips, because a full LOTD with presentable hair is almost impossible for me to do these days! Even on V-Day, I had to put my son on a chair opposite me while I did my hair! He stopped crying & watched  =D

Eyes:

Crease ~ First, I applied & blended together Urban Decay Tease, Limit & Darkside from Naked 3 Palette. Then I blended a bit of matte black e/s (Bourjois Intense #10). *In the pic above, I hadn't used black eyeshadow yet.

Lid ~ Etude House Fairy Glitter Shadow #1 Pink Glass Heels from Princess Happy Ending Cinderella Collection., a pressed glitter eyeshadow that's so so gorgeous!

Lower Lash Line ~ I used the same eyeshadows I used on the crease + the same glitter e/s on inner half. On the inner tear duct area, I used a bit of Urban Decay Dust from the same palette.

Kohl ~ To Tightline & on waterline, I used Colorbar Just Smoky Kajal in Just Black (Swatched here)

Eye Liner ~ I used Maybelline The Colossal Eye Liner. Winged it a bit.

Mascara ~ Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara. I applied about 3 boats of the bottom lash end.

False Lashes ~ Ardell. Not sure what number they are, but they're from the Natural Starter Kit that comes with glue & an applicator.

Lips:

First, I lined and filled my lips with Bourjois Levres Contour Lip Liner #12 Facetieuse, blotted it, and then I applied Revlon Matte Balm in Elusive on top - mainly on the center of top & bottom lip - and blended with a finger. I'm loving this combo these  days.


Hope you liked this type of post, because I'm gonna do more. I think it's a good way to swatch & wear products all at once.

Let me know if you'd like me to do a particular combo. Like, if you're not sure how to wear a lipstick or eyeshadow shade.


Sigh. That feeling again. It doesn't help that I have to wait till next Tuesday for the new episode of another tv show....another mystery I'm completely hooked to - Broadchurch

Ooh...idea! Heading to Amazon for new mystery novels now!


Talk again soon! =)

  7. You look lovely!
    Watch Top of the lake and The Killing if you are into the crime/mystery/suspense drama series. I have just started to watch The Missing but Top of the Lake was the best that I'd seen so far!

    1. Hey Shalini! I'd actually watched an ep of Top Of The Lake last year & then just stopped watching coz there were so many shows I was watching at the same time. Now I'll start again, thanks for reminding me! :)

      Watched The Killing already. All 3 seasons :D

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
