FOTD Blue Grey like a Persian Cat

So firstly let me start off this post by saying a very big thank you to the lovely Fyrinnae peeps for giving my little blog a mention - it was very kind and super exciting to wake up and find that a)I had 6 more followers than when I went to sleep and b)I had people from about a gazzillion countries paying me a visit! It made me super hyper all morning :) Also, please feel free to say hello and drop me some comments as I'd love to get to know more of you xx

So today's FOTD turned out (once again) nothing like I thought it would! This was partially due to using my new contour brush (more of that in my next post) - it picked up a heck of a lot more shadow than I was expecting and I discovered that people really aren't lying when they say that the Sleek palettes are heavily pigmented! Anyway, enough waffle, onto the pictures.

(This is the only half decent photo of my face from this morning.... stupid face refusing to look nice)
Lancome Adaptive Liquid Foundation in 02 Lys Rose
Botanics Cheek Colour in 15 Hollyhock (apples of my cheeks)
Ruby and Millie Cheeky Colour in Beige 80 (hollow of my cheeks for a bit of contouring)
Benefit Dandelion (quick sweep across my cheekbones to brighten it all up)

Urban Decay Primer Potion
Sleek Storm Palette Colour 1 (1st on top line - shimmery beige) all over lids and up to brow bone (blending brush)
Urban Decay Gunmetal from Books of Shadows Vol 2 across out 3/4 of lid + blended (blending brush)
Sleek Storm Palette Colour 8 (2nd on bottom line - deep navy blue shimmer) on crease and outer 1/4 of lid + blended (contour brush)
Sleek Storm Palette Colour 4 (4th on to line - shimmery dark gold) inner corner (contour brush)
Lancome Hypnose Waterproof Mascara in 01 Black
Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in 004 Black Brown

Benefit Her Glossiness in Who Are You Wearing (bright pink)

And some eye shots:




  1. Very pretty! Blue-grey looks so good with your eyecolor :)

  2. Nea - thank you! I've never tried a blue-grey combo before... I tend to stick to green or pinks/browns. I was quite shocked that it suited me :)

  3. It really does look good! I don't wear blues much either, maybe I need to try some day... :D
