FOTD: Purple Rain

It's been a miserable few days but I'm refusing to let the rain get me down! I've decided the best way to combat bad weather is to put colour back into my life and my make up, and let's be honest - there is no better colour than purple. PURPLE RAIIIN PURPLE RAIN!  

For this look I used pretty much every eye shadow palette in my collection haha. For my base I used Urban Decay Primer Potion (of course) and the shade 'Freestyle' from the Smoked Palette. I used 'Naked' from the Naked palette as my transition colour and then patted Betrayal from the Vice 2 all over my lid. In my outer v I used 'Pink Sapphire' from the Anastasia Lavish palette, with a tiny bit of 'Black Diamond' from the same palette. To intensify the lid colour I took the lilac shade from the Take Me to Brazil Palette (BH Cosmetics) on my finger and just patted it in the middle of my lid. I used MUA's Undress My Skin highlighter for my inner corners. For mascara I ~yet again~ turned to my beloved Big Fatty. Finally for eyes, I did a slight winged liner with Inglot's AMC Matte Gel Liner (Shade 77).

I pretty much do the same face make up for every look. Just a bit of True Match Foundation, a bit of Fit Me Concealer under my eyes (set with Ben Nye Banana Powder), Bourjois bronzer for a light contour and then I just select a blush. Today I opted for Nars Orgasm for a more subtle glow. (PS - I've actually had a good skin day for once woop!). I filled in my brows using 'Rewind' from the Vice 2 - I've been loving this for my brows lately.

I usually just slap on a lipstick to finish a look, but I was feeling a bit more fancy today. I ACTUALLY LINED THEM (with No7 Precision Pencil in 'Nude'). Then I put on Rimmel's Kate Lipstick in '08' and then finished with Revlon's 'Crystal Lilac' gloss. 

This is the first day in ages that I have worn my hair natural!

Sorry I've been a bit late with this week's post but to be honest I wasn't really in the mood for blogging until now. Anyway -

Ciao x
