Summer Holiday; dramatic colourful cut crease

A couple of weekends ago was my besties 21st birthday party, and the theme was summer/tequila sunrise so of course I had to go bright with the makeup! To make it a bit more dramatic I turned it into a black cut crease and tried to make it a little more creative :) I hope you like!

I got Naked... again!

I ordered the UD Naked palette 2 from even though it wasn't as cheap as what it is over in the U.S but they had free worldwide shipping for a limited time only, & I would be kickin myself if I missed out as I didn't know how much the shipping would be. However I looked back at the site & it says Free worldwide shipping (but not mentioning limited time) so it must be like that all the time!
Plus I don't think I have come across any other sites (apart from ebay which is crazy expensive) that sell urban decay & ship to Australia apart from this one.
 If u can see, it was dispatched on the 7/3 and I only received it on the 26/3, But I'm used to everything taking so long haha
 It came in a nice big box with plenty of packing... stuff.. lol.

sooo pretty! hehe.  Can't wait to play with this & find out different combos :D

Purple Arabic Look

When I was doing this I wasn't thinking of dong anything special with the eyeliner.. as you may have noticed, I barely ever go into the inner corner with it, but today I did & I really like how it turned out, kind of exotic & Arabic looking, hence the name.
 I didn't want to do anything too drastic for work with the eyeliner on the lower lashline but after I took these pics I ended up going all the way to the inner corner, which was nice for a change but not a look I'd go for all the time.

A Day at the Races Pic Heavy

Last weekend The weekend before it was Cup Day at the Races, one of the days where everyone gets dressed up & has a bit too much to drink, haha. You don't have to go to bet, although I did put a few small ones on though & only won a tiiny bit that didn't make up for anything, ahah.
Anyway, with my makeup I felt a bit like someone from the Old Hollywood era, with red lips & neutral eyes. However lashes & eyeliner spiced up the neutral eyes. Warning: Super Posey pics ahead

Goldilux At Night

I mentioned that I finally got me some Sugarpill, & I said I would use them soon! I have used all the colours at least once already, and if I was actually organized I wouldn't have to post them a week later lol. Anyway, I did this not long before washing it off just to practice, I wanted a cut crease but I think the "cut" needs to be more visible lol, either way I like it.

These pics are going to go off the page, so click on them to view properly.
my fdtn is barely hanging in there lol, after a long day of wearing it. Weird angle but I had to tilt my head up into the light to get a good shot.

This is how I wore it during the day, with browns from Sleek Storm & purple on the lower lashline.

Sugarpill Goldilux
Nyx JEP in Black Bean to cut into the crease & as the E/L .
Bourjois E/S Pot it 04 blended into Black Bean
Black & Brown from 28 Neutral Palette to blend that black & for the lower lash line.
Nyx White Pearl to highlight
Red Cherry Lashes in #74

By this time my blush had faded & I was only wearing lip balm, but I did add red lipstick not long before washing it off but couldn't get a good pic.

Also, especially to Mandy who wanted a review, the swatches are here, I just wanted to say that so far, I'm loving them! You really get a lot with them which will last forever as a little goes a long way, and they apply so beautifully! With any eyeshadow, a primer will make it last all day, but I don't think you need to use a base for the colour to stand out. I had absolutely no creasing either (with a different look, & that was after wearing it all day)

As always thanks for looking, comments & suggestions are welcome xx

Blue Lagoon

Firstly yay I've finally reached 200 followers it feels like it has taken me forever but I had a slow start, thanks to each & every one of you :)
Anyway, On this day I wanted to stick to blues, the reason for it is at the bottom. May I say that I'm really proud of myself, as silly as it sounds, because I really like how this turned out, & hope you can see the depth that I tried to create with the colours, like in a nice blue lagoon.

A couple of Nails..

Last weeks mani... wanted to use all my new polishes at once :) We got to go to a wholesalers (lost my Hairmart cherry hehe) & I bought O.P.I Blue my mind (blue ha ha) & O.P.I Divine Swine.. should have bought some more for the bargain haha.
I also received the China Glaze Matte top coat in the mail so I used that on the tips to test it out, if you can see it, & it works yay haha except the bottle is so small that I would not want to use it all the time.
Sorry for the dents in my nail as I was not patient to wait for it to dry fully. :D

 This is my current mani & I am in love, I think I will be doing this a few more times!
I received the base colour as a birthday gift ages ago & never used it, and it seemed a bit too plain on its own so I added the glitter which I bought recently and it turned it aqua (I suppose that's thanks to the green :P) So its ADORme nail polish in colour 3 with BYS Glam glitter in Dazzling. With most glitters like this its kind of like a jelly base so its so hard to get the glitter in it onto the nails so I went over many times, resulting in the base colour to move around on some nails.

I am still slowly expanding my collection, much to the disapproval of SO hehe, I think I will definetly buy more of the BYS glitter nail polishes because they are so cheap, but depending on which country you live in it can be hard to find.
So I ask: Are you into accent nails & glitter? & Together or not at the same time?
