Look - Smoked Out

Just a quick, smoky eye I did last night to go to a gig. I was feeling decidedly under the weather, so a smoky eye seemed like the best choice to go with.

Halloween Photo Shoot

Today, I worked on a Halloween-themed photoshoot with Karl Walsh Photography. I took a couple of shots myself, these haven't been edited or Photoshopped at all, and they may be a little blurry (it was cold out there), but they give the basic gist.

Inglot - AMC Eyeliner Gel 77

 Because I was so impressed with Inglot's AMC Eyeliner Gel in shade 87, I decided to replace my Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink with Inglot's Gel in shade 77.
I've been using the Bobbi Brown gel liner in my freelance kit & it replaced MAC's Fluidline in Black Track. I vastly preferred Bobbi Brown to Fluidline, but, now I've had a chance to use Inglot 77, I won't be buying the Bobbi Brown gel liner again.

EOTD - Pylean

Another look inspired by Angel, this time I took my inspiration from the character of Lorne. As with Illyria, this was another test run, so I only did one eye & used no other make-up. Again, it could use a little perfecting, but I liked the basic idea.

Inglot - AMC Eyeliner Gel 87

A while back, I dyed a bit of my hair teal. I was trying to do my eyebrows to match it for a night out & the only teal liners I had were shimmery. I've been known to do glittery eyebrows on occasion, but this liner had golden shimmer in it & it looked odd, even with a powder eyeshadow over the top.

I went on a hunt for a nice, matte liner & stumbled across Inglot's AMC Eyeliner Gel in shade 87. As it turned out, I didn't keep the teal hair for very long, I've since dyed my hair red & black, but this little pot of goodness still has a loving home in my make-up stash.

Glitter Gal - Silver

 As you may have gathered, I'm a tad obsessed with the Glitter Gal holographic nail polishes. When I noticed I was running low on my China Glaze silver holo polish, OMG, I decided it would be a good idea to try Glitter Gal's Silver to see how it performed against OMG.

For a photo of how OMG looks, check out my nail art tutorial using OMG as the base shade.

EOTD - Illyria

It's been an absolute age since I last posted a look. Anyway, this one is a bit rough & ready, I got the urge to do this first thing this morning. I did one eye only, no other make-up at all, it was a test run of an idea I had kicking around.

I'm a huge fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer & its offshoot series Angel, with Angel being my favourite of the two shows. So, I got the idea late last night to do a themed look, the inspiration being the character Illyria.

Urban Decay - The Vice Palette

The minute I saw the new Vice palette from Urban Decay, I had to get my hands on it. Twenty shades of shadow & all of them previously unreleased - how could I say no to that?

It's only recently that I've developed a bit of a thing for the Urban Decay palettes, two of my favourites have been the Smoked palette & the 15th Anniversary palette. I think that the Vice palette may well end up becoming a favourite, too.
