Turtle Beauty's Giveaway and Fall-y Goodness!

Except in Eng-er-land, we call it 'autumn,' innit.

In case you live under a rock, Cydonian of Turtle Beauty is having an awesome giveaway with LA Colours, China Glaze, Essie, Clinque and Maybelline! 'Citing! So go here and enter it thankyou plz, as it ends tomorrow.

Anyway, she asked people to do a fall look for extra entries, so today I finally got round to doing one:

UDPP/Pixie Epoxy
Rimmel kohl liner in Forest Green (lower lashline as a base)
Fyrinnae Damn Paladins (lid)
Fyrinnae Dressed to Kill (upper and lower lashlines, and blended out in the crease)
Hi-Fi Valentine Evenings (crease)

Mac blush in Springsheen
Sleek Contour Kit in Light

Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Devil Horns

I really liked this look. I know people don't think of green as being a very autumnal colour, but I really wanted to paired Dressed to Kill with some coppers or reds at some point, and it has a lot of gold shot through it too. It was a pain in the butt to get to stick, thank god for Pixie Epoxy!

TSS Angels Blush (lid)
TSS Gothic Glamour (crease and lower lashline)
Brown Kryolan AquaColour (liner)
Mac Gesso (highlight)

Almay Blush in Peach
NYX Mosaic Highlighter

High Voltage Lip Candy in Kinky

Ok, so this picture is rank, but you get the point. Orange + brown = win. Plus I didn't have much time for my make-up that morning, and that always mean bright lippie.

Evil Shades Wistful (lid)
Evil Shades Double Barrell (crease and lower lashline)
Sleek matte brown from Bohemian palette (lower lashline)
Evil Shades Nymphette (liner)
Ancient NYC blue-toned shimmer powder for highlight

Oh, god, I don't know. Blush of some description.

Cherry Carmex

In a bid to use my samples more (post coming up) I did a full Evil Shades eye. I'd not used Nymphette before and it's a totally gorgeous liner shade. I guess this is quite neutral and toned down for me, but I really liked it.

Plans for the weekend, peeps? I was going to go out tomorrow but I've been having really pooey dizzy spells so I think that plan is on the back burner. I'm hoping to drag my bloke to Camden to lust after corsets and cyber goth crap and try to persuade him that I really, really, really need high heeled Doc Martens on our next snowboarding trip. Failing that, make cup cakes. Gotta have a plan B.



  1. Dressed to kill makes for an AWESOME liner.

  2. You cracked me up with your : gotta have a plan B quote !

    I work this week end , isn't that the worse plan ever ? (sorry I feel like being whinny ;-)

    Caro xxx

  3. Oooh! The green shadow makes for a pretty liner! Love it!

  4. They are all so pretty! I particularly love the eye in the first look and the lip in the second one!
    I think I want Doc Martens too, but they look kind of hard to find here.

  5. Love the orange lips in the 2nd look! I need me some orange lipsticks! My plans for the weekend involve cupcakes too! Alcoholic cupcakes that is! Amaretto and chocolate chips methinks :3 Cupcakes then moving off to uni. funtimes.

  6. I *love* the autumnal look. I think using green in it was brilliant - it reminds me of the beginnings of Autumn, when the leaves are just starting to change.

  7. Oooh I love your entry :) Very pretty. I love the dark green. I dunno why people don't think of green as a fall colour, I mean... bright green, no, but that dark metallic, foresty green? Yes! Love.

  8. i used to get confused when ppl say it's fall season :p cos Australia calls in Autumn too :D
    love your giveaway fall look. I really need to get my hands on some Fyrinnae!! i'm always sayign i should and then i pull back cos i'm unsure :p

  9. @Phyrra: Yeah, I've been rediscovering shadow as liner recently and Fyrinnae has some gorgeous ones!

    @MUA: That is the worst plan ever. Go in hungover, then you'll forget about the work. Works for me :)

    @Kimberley: thanks hon!

    @Musing On Beauty: I can't live without my Docs. They're so worth the money, they'll last you years!

    @Methadone Pretty: I saw a lush Stargazer one in New Look that I have to get, and I want MAC Morange as well. Where did you get the Amaretto cupcake recipe?

    @kathyeffingjacobs: Exactly!

    @Cydonian: Thanks dude. Where I am we never get anything near to the bright red-orange-yellow New England sort of fall colours - we get yellow if we're lucky.

    @Mandy: Their shipping is pretty cheap and free over $20 so it's worth giving them a go - they've got some lovely neutrals I've got my eye on next time.

  10. Kinky is a friggin beautiful lip colour :O wants

  11. Its not exactly a reciepe..I just mix up the cake batter, and slosh in some booze :D I am not a precise baker
