Lots of pictures here, and not too many words, merry Christmas everyone!


Applying a colour wash – Mac Dovefeather

Defining the crease – Laura Mercier Twilight

Powder Lining – Laura Mercier Twilight

Lining the lower waterline – Laura Mercier Twilight (considering botox, priceless)

Applying Mascara – Lancome Hypnose Drama

Deciding I need liquid liner – Make Up Forever purple

Applying blusher – Cargo Plant Love Illuminator in Wind (fnaar)

Lipstick – YSL Rouge Volupte 23

How the eye make up looks close up

And, how the look is complete:

(possibly the worst picture of me, ever taken, hence the close cropping!)

This is my smokey-eyes party look, and it’s what I’ll be sporting today.  Hope you’re all having a wonderful Christmas!

I’ll be back around the new year, I’ll see you all soon!

    Thank you very much! I love purple, as I think some of you might have noticed … 😉

    Bicky, I mastered the art of applying mascara with my mouth closed many years ago! One day, I'll teach you the secret!
