EOTD: More Love for Moscow

Hello Ladies,

Can you tell FOTD are my favorite kind of posts? I simply love showing off the eye looks, considering not that long ago I was completely clueless (and terrible) at applying eye makeup. And look at me now :) 

This past week all my love was given to Stila's Moscow Travel Palette and I have a feeling it will be getting more love from me today. I love how the colors look on me and I can't bring myself to use any other colors for now.

As always I have lots of photos because I can't choose.

 I wanted to do a different look from the one I did before. Actually I did another one right before this, but didn't take photos. This palette is great because you can experiment and either have a very "safe" neutral makeup, or add a bit of color for a pop. Or simply layer the shadows so they will stand out more.

See how pigmented they are? I only used e.l.f. Mineral Eye Primer and nothing else. I have UDPP too, and I use it sometimes but I really can't tell the difference. I also used Sigma F70 concealer brush to apply the eyeshadow on the top lid. I picked it up from my set without looking at what it was for, and used it several times before I read that it is a concealer brush (DURRR!) and now I have no intention of using it for the intended purpose lol. The bristles are so soft and keep the eyeshadow very well. I'm thinking of purchasing several more of those, because this is the brush I reach for the most now when applying eyeshadows.

As always, I didn't experience any fallout and I wear my eyeshadows for at least 10 hours a day, but usually even more than that. I think I definitely will be buying more of Stila's eyeshadows!

Pink Pin Up Look

Hello Ladies,

I just sent out my entries to BUBBLEGARM'S Sigma Make Me Up contest so that means it is time to post my second entry. I had this look in mind for a long time, ever since I got the shorts from either River Island or Vera Moda, forgot which ones. They were a perfect pin up shorts, and I had to have them. About two weeks ago I found the perfect shirt and some accessories. All was left to do is makeup itself.

I'm sorry for so many photos, I just couldn't choose only a few.
