Pastel Fairy Dream: Brija Comsetics Eye Look

Just a quick blog post to show you this pastel-vomit cute eye look I did recently with all Brija Cosmetics. I was desperate to use some new shadows that I received including the three year anniversary gift with purchase, aptly named Three Years. I also used some of the all matte Gilmore Girls collection.

Without further ado...

I used Punctuality all over the lid to aid blending. I then used Hit By a Deer and Vicious Trollop in the crease with a tiny bit of It All Comes Out In Moron to deepen it up. I applied the absolutely gorgeous Three Years (a lilac with gold reflects) all over the lid and blended it out. I applied Three Years over the Brija Adhesive Eye Wax to really bring out the colour. Finally, I added a tiny bit of the Brija You Know Who Highlight to my inner corner. 

So yeah, definitely something a little different for me but I'm really digging it! Have you tried any eyeshadows from Brija Cosmetics?

Trying Something Different

Quick post today but last night I was playing around with makeup (as you do), and this happened. And I'm diggin' it. Winged liner has always been a staple in my makeup repertoire but this time I've gone bolder and added falsies. Also, I usually wear winged liner on its own so even the addition of eyeshadow is trying something new. The eyeshadow look in question is a soft taupe smokey eye with a pop of yellow on the lid. Sounds horrendous on paper but I really do enjoy it in practice. 

This look probably would have benefited from some black pencil liner but I don't have any at the moment! I'm looking at either the Antonym or the Inika one.

Here's what I used:
Primed with BWC Super Cover Concealer in Fair
Shiro Cosmetics Hodor
Brija Cosmetics Transfiguration
Brija Cosmetics Scared, Potter?
Shiro Cosmetics Salt & Stone
Brija Cosmetics You Know Who Highlighter for inner corner
TANF That Black Gel Eyeliner + Silk Naturals Raven**
PHB Ethical Beauty Mascara
Eylure Cheryl No. 114 lashes

** I no longer buy from Silk Naturals as they sell products containing carmine.
