FOTD - Bright "sea" themed eyes and shocking pink lips.

Well hey hey and hello there my gorgeous glitterati.

I'm soooooooooooo crazy busy at the minute, but I thought I'd take the time to do a quick little face of the day post to say hi, show my face and prove I haven't forgotten about you lovelies.

I've had a week off work, but we were doing things every single day and now I'm back to work and my evenings are busy too, it's all go here :)

My next post is going to be later in the week and I think I'm going to do my MAC eyeshadow swatches, a lot of my singles are permanent and I love seeing other people's swatches as it inspires me for what I want to buy next, so that's the plan. Would that be something you'd like to see?

Onto the piccies of today's crazy bright look. I feel the urge to use blues and greens this morning, I was just drawn to them like a moth to a flame, so I went for a mermaid / sea themed eye and a fuchsia lip, I'm never one for subtlety:

I thought I'd pose with no glasses on so you could get the full effect - Oh and yes, I have darker hair and a nose stud now, amazing how things change in a week or 2 isn't it :) What do you think?

Onto the product used:

Face - Illamasqua skinbase in 08, MAC Studio Fix concealer in NW25 and Boots 17 pressed powder in delicate beige.

Brows - Anastasia brow whizz in medium ash.

Eyes - MAC bare study paint pot as a base, MAC freshwater all over the lid, MAC shimmermoss blended through the crease, MAC bio green on the outer corner and MAC ricepaper under the brow bone. MAC black line pearlglide liner in the waterline and finally MAC zoomlash mascara.

Cheeks - Illamasqua Hussy powder blush with a little Dior Amber Diamond highlighter on my cheekbones.

Lips - MAC Rare Exotic Mattene lipstick with a little Liz Earle sheer lip gloss in Fuchsia on top.

That's the lot :) I just thought you might like to see this one today as it's crazy bright and fun, why not, I'm all about playing with the eyeshadow, I just love to experiment with colour.

Have you got any shades you'd like to see me use or any suggestions for new colour combos to try out? I'm open to anything and I love to hear your views so ask away.

I'll be back later on in the week my lovelies, until then take care and much love to all xox
