3 new nail polishes

All by NYC, a little 3 for 2 treat.

I've only worn High Line Green so far, and it's already a favourite. The other's are Midtown (hot pink) and Lincoln Square Lavender.

Smudgy look

My precious cat was called Smudgy. That's a nice little fact for you. On to my face now. Just a casual night out to a friend's for drinks last night so I thought a smudgy, smokey eye would work nicely.

Out came Boots 17 wild Metallic eyes in Midnight.

Easy peasy to apply. Just with a finger and blended out at the edges with a dense blending brush (something like a mac217)

Leaves a very lived in, creased up glittery effect. Very similar to a recent post I've seen but I can't find the author :(
Instead of fussing about with liner, I threw on a pair of eBay lashes and let the lash band do the work.

Lilac nails

I've been neglectful again! I think I'll just have to come to terms with my sporadic posting. Have some nail porn to perve at and hopefully you'll forgive me

Barry M Berry ice cream topped with NYC lights, camera, glitter.

Nicki Minaj Stupid Hoe look

I do love Ms Minaj. Her crazy fashion and make up looks are awesome so I decided to use one from her Stupid Hoe video to inspire my Friday night make up.

I used this picture

but decided to change to colours to compliment my outfit. How amazing are the pastel yellow lips though?

this is what I came up with

I drew a winged out shape using white pencil liner, filled it in with NYX Milk pencil and patted on a mint green shadow from an EBay 120 palette.

Face- Mac studio fix fluid, Rimmel Stay matte powder, Benefit Dallas Bronzer and Mac Pink Swoon blush

Eyes- UDPP, Gosh White Kohl, NYX jumbo pencil Milk, EBay 120 eyeshadow palette, Maybelline gel liner, Mac Splashproof mascara, Primark eyelashes.

Lips- Mac Costa Chic

Really, really love paste colours and just think this is perfect for Spring. I need to try the pink eyes/yellow lips though- any ideas on where I can get yellow lipstick?
