Video: Green & Silver Christmas

One Christmas themed make up tutorial is never enough, so I've done another! I figured I had to do something with green and red, and I've seen sooo many gold and brown ones (naturally those were all done after I did mine, haha).

Video: MAC Christmas Pigments Look


I realised I've owned the MAC Christmas pigments for over a week and hadn't used them so I decided to just get in front of a camera and have a go. I had a vague idea of what I was going to do, but wasn't sure how well it would work since the pigments are so difficult to use and tend to blend together into one big sheen, which makes it hard to even tell what it's supposed to look like.

I usually would have made the crease of my eye darker to prevent the 'one big sheen' thing, but I wanted to mostly just use the pigments for those that have them and aren't sure how to use them.

I found it impossible to photograph it for some reason, so the photos are even more useless than normal today!

Also I'm gutted cause I did some pro skills with my eyeliner, didn't mess up once, but you can't tell at all from the photos :/

MAC Paint Pot - Bare Study

Collection Cream Puff Lipstick - Cotton Candy


I am having second thoughts about the lip colour, I reckon a pink lipgloss might have been better, especially if it was glittery since that would be quite festive.

Thanks for reading (:

Video: Pretty Grunge

Recently I remembered how much I love Smog eyeshadow by Urban Decay so I decided my next video had to feature it. It's one of very few eyeshadow colours I love to wear alone. Normally I'll use a good 3 or 4 colours in an eye look, but this one features just Smog (excluding the highlight colour).

I decided to call it 'Pretty Grunge' because the eyeshadow is relatively dark and smudgey, but then the lips are quite a light girly pink to balance it out. I quite like them together.

I wondered if it was even worth doing a tutorial on this, but I thought what the heck I'll do it anyway.
