...beauty: EOTD - Weirdly Wearable pink, red and black

Blog Sale on the way folks but today we had some actual sunshine so I decided to make the most of it. My camera still did not quite do it justice - it is a little pinker, purplier and sparklier in real life but the pics are not too bad today!

-Base: Too Faced Shadow Insurance

-Lid + inner 2/3 of lower lashline: MAC Sushi Flower

-Outer corner/Socket/outer 1/3 of lower lashline: MAC Cranberry

-Extra socket definition: MAC Beauty Marked

-Lid + Inner lower lashline Highlight: Napoleon Perdis shimmer dust No.7

-Brow highlight (which has not shown up at al!!) : Laura Geller Wonder Wand

-Waterline: MAC eye kohl Smoulder

As you can see, the three pics all look fairly different. The reality is somewhere in the middle, but with more sparkle!
I love Sushi Flower and Cranberry together, I think they make such a pretty combination. Quite Summery, reminds of things to look forward too while it's freezing cold with gale force winds....
The Napoleon Perdis pigment is a pink/gold/very slightly green tinged shimmer powder that gives extra dimension and vibrancy to the look.
Beauty Marked is amazing for darkening red or purple shades because it takes on the colours rather than taking them over like a standard black. For example, over Cranberry, it turns into a dark purple.

Anyway, I hope you like it.
Thanks for reading.xx
