Two LOTD: One dark, one bright!

First of all, hellooooo, new followers! How are you all?

So yesterday I wanted to use my favourite eyeshadow, Barry M's Dazzle Dust in no 98 Petrol Black:

I used that all over the lid and blended it out with a blue from the Sleek Original, and used a different blue from the same palette for the inner corner. God, I love that Barry M shadow! My friend at work loved this look and asked me to do it for her on the next night out :)

Another friend at work asked me to do a bright look, and said that she'd do a bright look to compare, so I could help her get her colours bright (she didn't need it - I wish I got a pic of her eyes, they were glittertastic and she has the most amazing eyelashes!) and this is what I came up with.

Sorry for my awful expression! I used the yellow from sleek original, an orange and neon pink from Barry M, a Gosh Effects powder in the inner corner and blended it with a couple of 120 colours. I couldn't get my liner to look nice today - I need to find a new black liquid liner. I think Barry M is due another visit. I also - omg - actually wore COLOUR on my cheeks today. You can't see it so well but I used Sleek Flamingo. Its a loooovely bright pink. I saw it on Lillian's blog () and had to have it.

In other news, I just ordered theeeeees off eBay:

66 colours for £5.99 and free shipping? Aaaaaall over that. Check out the swatches on YouTube, it seems pretty pigmented! Its not a lot of colour in each one and I dont know if you can take the little pans out to use throughout the day, but I don't care. There's blue, gold and silver, and that'll keep my creative side happy.

My boss got her makeup done for a film premiere by a department store MUA today and I had to fix it for her. It was - excuse me - fucking awful. A brown and a taupe colour, one on the outer half, one on the inner half of her eyes, no liner or mascara, and just foundation. I was not impressed and neither was she. She didn't pay for it though, thank god, and I managed to fix it as best as I could with the one brush and one vaguely matching shadow we had and give her some sexy liner. She looked pretty foxy.

Love and kisses,
