Whats that coming over the hill...?

Is it a Monster? Is it a Monsterrrr?

So I chose Monster energy drink as my soda for Make Up Geeks weekly challenge which is obviously to create a soda inspired look. If you haven't seen it, go and check it out, there's some great creative looks and some awesome colour combos.

And there it is in all its green-y goodness. I love Monster. I don't normally drink energy drinks and not even that much pop, to be honest, but I do love this energy drink. I drank a lot of it because they were giving tons of it away on the snowboarding resort I lived on for a while and it just reminds me of good times.


120 palette -lid, crease, outer V
Nyx Jade - inner outer V (:S)
Nyx Frosted Flakes - inner corner and brow highlight
Kryolan aqua colors in Black and White (liner)
Rhinestones from eBay
Cheap lashes from local beauty supply


MUA Blusher - apples of the cheeks
Sleek Contour palette - under cheekbones
Nyx Mosaic Powder - cheekbones
Revlon Colorstay in Buff


Nyx Round Lipstick in Narcissus
Nyx Round Lipstick in Louisiana (inner lips)
MUA lipgloss in shade 5 (centre of lips)

I got a parcel from Lipglossiping's blog sale this morning containing the Kryolan aqua colors I used for this look and I am in love with them already. Its nice to have some more versatile products in my kit - especially as these are going to last me for a long, long time! Charlotte is also a total doll and sent me a Kryolan supra colour for free which I was totally stoked for - I just need to work out how to use it! Either way, a very happy bunny here.

Ok... One last thing. Fast approaching 40 followers (squee) so a little thankyou giveaway is extremely imminent. However... I don't know how to go about it. What would you ask people to do or write to make it a bit more fun and different and get people interested?

Love and kisses xxx

    BTW, I replied to your post on my blog, but then realized you probably wouldn't notice :3

  3. Thanks Mandy - I wasn't sure how the liner was going to go but it was pretty easy to do, actually!
