Skyfall

I’ve seen sooooo many people over the last few days who wore Skyfall from Viva la Diva on their lips, so I just had to dig my tube out and wear it! It’s a beautiful dark pink, and I bumped the purple undertones a little extra with Boost lipgloss from Illamasqua.

Sweet Pea

I haven’t worn bright pink on either lips or cheeks in a really long time, so when I picked the hot pink Aqua Rouge up from my drawers I was like YES! THIS is what I’m wearing today! I took far too long doing my eyeliner though, I haven’t worn liquid liner in ages so I’ve totally lost the technique. Ouch.

Shocking Coral

I’ve stayed away from lip glosses for a long time now (icy January hair stuck in lipgloss.. no thank youuuu!) so I’m really feeling it again! Matte natural skin with strategically placed highlights and a glossy bright lip in contrast with the plain skin. Yum!

And what was I wearing two years ago?

It’s always fun to look back at old makeup looks, so let’s see what I wore during the spring of 2012!

Judging by the pictures I was totally into smokey lower lashlines, glowing higlighters and fun lippies. I remember that I often wore my brows combed through with only a clear brow gel, when I didn’t I wore them very well defined. Love the brow shape I had back then! I miss my dark hair aswell.. Hmmm..

Zygomatic

Here’s what I wore on le face today! I found my way back to Zygomatic Cream Blusher from Illamasqua once again, it’s like a softly blushed nude colour that doesn’t stand out a lot from the skin, but it creates dimension and life once applied. Topped with LUSH Skin Tint in the colour Feeling Younger on the cheekbones and under the brows the skin just glows!

Also, the nail colour is a perfect budget alternative to the trendy pale blue that Dior released this spring. Pop the bright blue against a pinky red lip for a perrrrty contrast!
