FOTD Lavender

So frustrated right now! My laptop’s completely broken :( AND my cat has run off with my memory stick – no joke!

Lol I left it on my bed and my cat was pottering around my room, next thing I know my pen drive’s gone and the cat is running outside… so yeah, all the picture’s I’ve taken for my blog have gone :(

I’m trying to get sorted and there’s a few review nearly finished which will hopefully be up this week :) but for now here’s a quick FOTD with my new love – lavender toned lippie :D
(I’m not really sure what’s going on with my hair colour here… it either looks blonde or red in photos… very odd.)

Face
Lancôme’s silky matte in 01 mixed with bourjois’ ten hour sleep foundation (I’m mixing all my foundations at the moment!)
Maybelline’s mineral concealer under my eyes
Dandelion blush from benefit (just on my cheeks, I’m too fair to use it as a face powder really)
BodyShop’s warm glow in 02 – it is love! I’m going to write a review on this straight after this… I’m actually tempted to get a back up :)

Eyes
I kept this super super simple because I still wasn’t sure if the lip colour was too much so..
Maybelline colossal – This has become my go to mascara :)
A little bit of Sleek’s gel liner in dominatrix
Mac’s Brule and a cheapy matte mid brown(the brand name has rubbed off lol)
(sorry about the huge lighting difference, the weather couldn’t make up it’s mind and it kept going really bright then really dark..)
Lips
Ok, well I don’t actually have a lavender lipstick just because they always look a little scary, pretty.. but scary. So…
I just put GOSH darling on and then but a very light layer of Maybelline’s midnight plum using a lip brush and wollah – I love it :)

(it’s a good way of using up GOSH darling if your like me and bought it purely for the hype without realising how awful nudes look on you :p)

Oooh very pretty! I've also been experimenting with mix and match lip colors! Coming up with your own unique combinations is always more gratifying and fun! Plus you get more use out of your existing lip product stash! ♥
