Random Post + 2 EOTD

On Friday, my boyfriend had to go into the city for an interview so I tagged along. Walked around the city, had lunch at Criniti’s, watched street performers and then interview time for the boy.
I absolutely love street performers! We had to leave in the middle of this performance otherwise he’d be late but this performer was so cool.

Did my Aussie readers enjoy their long weekend despite the horrible weather?

I did haha. Mine was filled with alcohol, no sleep and lots of good memories.

Friday was city during the day with my boyfriend (as mentioned) and then we went clubbing for a friend’s birthday.

Saturday I had work in the morning (which was a killer, btw! Never going to work after a late night..) then car shopping and then a drink up at my cousins where we were all off our faces lol.

Sunday was recovery day. Yumcha in the morning – best hangover food ever haha and then home to nap then work.

Monday we took my brother to the movies to watch Avatar: The Last Airbender in 3D. Kinda ok movie. Dinner was at Meat & Wine Co for a friend’s birthday. Yumm!

PS. Happy birthday, Jannett. I think I’ve said that like 5 times in total this weekend LOL.

And……..two EOTD/N and a lippie picture 🙂

Thought it was about time I used my MAC Shimmermoss eyeshadow from the To The Beach collection.

EOTD & Picture Challenge


Day 15 – A picture of yourself

More like an EOTN but nonetheless, my favourite smokey (or is it smoky??) eye 😀

What I used:
Pixi Tint & Conceal
Nivea tinted moisturiser
MAC Ripe Peach blush ombre
NARS Albatross highlighting powder

NYX Black Bean jumbo eye pencil
MAC Silverthorn eyeshadow
MAC Smoke & Diamonds eyeshadow
MAC Carbon eyeshadow
MAC Espresso eyeshadow
MAC Brule eyeshadow
Urban Decay Zero 24/7 pencil liner
Covergirl Lash Blast mascara

Viva Glam Cyndi lisptick & later, Revlon Soft Rose colorburst lipstick

Smokey Day!

I’ve realised that my eyes are strangely asymmetrical which means I gotta do my eye make-up differently for both and they look so uneven when my eyes are closed yet look pretty even when I open them peepers LOL.

Here’s the quickest EOTD I’ve done!

Sue Devitt Tanzania eye intensifier pencil
Stila Pewter eyeshadow
MAC Brule eyeshadow
Urban Decay Zero 24/7 eye pencil

And thanks to a burn-off in the Blue Mountains, it was smokey all day! Yuck.

MAC Pigment Challenge – Sweet Sienna and Vanilla

I thought I’d start off this challenge with one of my favourite pigments of all time – Sweet Sienna 🙂

Sweet Sienna was released with the Antiquitease collection back in 2007. It’s described as a “dirty brown with grey pearl”. It’s one of my favourites cos it’s just a stunning grey with shimmering gold throughout giving it a pretty antique kind of colour.

What I used:

Mary Kay Signature Eye Primer – prime the eyelids
NYX Black Bean Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil – all over lid
MAC Sweet Sienna pigment – over NYX Black Bean Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil
MAC Saddle eyeshadow – crease
MAC Vanilla pigment – highlight
MAC Carbon eyeshadow – waterline (over MAC Blacktrack fluidline)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline – liner (top & bottom)
Covergirl Lash Blast mascara

So, 2 down, a truckload more to go!

Sorry for the craptastic camera phone picture 😦
