Almond Truffle

After finding a pale pink lipstick that actually suits my natural colouring a whole new world of possibilities opened up for me, creating monochrome pink looks like this one for example. Almond Truffle from the Too Faced Bon Bons palette is such a gem for fair skinned peeps with blue/green eyes, the rosiness of this eyeshadow is so damn flattering. They really make the perfect combo.

Mary-Lou

Yesterday I went out for a beer with friends, and I got completely carried away with the glow before leaving home. I seem to have a thing for over-highlighted skin at the moment. Haha. When I’m going somewhere with dull soft lighting nothing can stop me!!

Totally Fetch

Today I got carried away with the pink shades from the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons Eyeshadow Palette (review here!). Of course paired with a pink lip and pink cheeks. Pink pink pink. For some reason I’m really feeling the valentines day colour scheme this year!

Secret Garden

Today I asked on Instagram what kind of makeup you wanted to see, I got some answers saying statement eyes, greens, grunge.. So I merged as many wishes as possible together and did this! The turqouise KIKO pencil on my waterline and blended over the lids, Makeup Geek Secret Garden all over the lids and blending it all out with KIKO Olive Green. Same thing on both top and bottom lid.

By the way, I featured a picture of the main products in this look at the bottom of the post. Good thing, boring thing?

Phee’s Makeup Tips Pressed Highlighter “Mariposa”

I have been CAKING the Phee’s Makeup Tips Pressed Highlighter in Mariposa on my face lately, those of you who follow me on Instagram (@killercolours) know that already. It’s a beautiful lavender pinky purple highlighter that sparkles like crazy, definitely more on the Ice Queen of Narnia side of things than bare skinned inner glow blabla. Exactly how I want things to look right now. Go get it (and her other beautiful products) at her webshop!

Apart from the highlighter I’m wearing the Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Baked Powder in Bronze 03 and NARS Blush in Sin. And oh, that perfect pink matte lipstick? More about that soon!
