I decided to do something a bit different on Wednesday and went for a smoky eye using Rouge Bunny Rouge. I applied Electrifying Storm Petrel (charcoal grey) on the lid and Volcano Fairy Wren (black with silver glimmers) on the outer v, and underneath my lower lashline. I used Solstice Halcyon (taupe satin) to blend through my crease, and used MAC Blacktrack fluidline to line my upper lashline. I'm not good at complicated eye looks, but it didn't turn out too badly, and the eyeshadows apply and blend very well, even in my inexpert hands.
I'm also wearing Irreverence lipstick and Vermeer cream blush. Irreverence is lighter on me than I expected from the online description; on me it reads as a creamy nudeish pink. I'm not at all comfortable in this kind of colour, although I know they are popular, but I don't think that creamy nude lips suit my pale olive skintone very well. I think I'd prefer the overall look with a sheer natural rosy lip colour.
Mr London looked perplexed for a bit when I asked him what he thought, before finally remarking, "I think it's more of an evening look." I think he's right; I'm much more comfy in brighter lips and simpler eye make-up. It's nice to dip a toe outside of my comfort zone every now and then, although it confirms that nude lips aren't for me!
