EOTD: Sleek Plummy Pinks...

I'm still way behind schedule because of my house move, in fact I only have 2 days left in May to meet my quota of 8 EOTD's for the month, so it's looking like I'll have to go with a trifecta - 3 in a row! Will return to my regular variety of content in June, meanwhile here's the plummy pink look I put together today 

These particular hues are just so flattering for an older chook like me - they have sufficient oomph to define my eyes, but with a softness that creates an almost velvety glow that's kind enough to not make my wrinkly bits stand out  Base was Maybelline Color Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk - over that went Valley of Diamonds from the Sleek Arabian Nights palette. It's the sparkly pink pan below right - just gorgeous! The deeper matte plum on the left (Stallion) was what I used for the crease, and along the lower lashline...


The ever so pretty pastel below is Eve's Kiss (don't you just love that name?) from the Sleek Garden of Eden palette - I blended this from the inner corner to the one third mark. Just love it when a company makes products that I can mix and match 


And on the waterline is essence kajal in I Have A Green...


For my cheeks I used a base of Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Make a Mauve, with a light dusting of bhcosmetics Iris blush over the top. Lips are Lacura Beauty Lipstick in shade 81, Chestnut - my latest love (and discovery!), and I'll be reviewing this whole range very soon...


I reckon I'll be wearing these colours a fair bit this Winter - they're cosy and pretty, and even though my hair is an orangey red hue, interestingly it doesn't clash with the pinks at all 

Take care of you,

  2. Pink shadows always look good on green eyes. Your lips really pop here! Lacura are pretty good, but I haven't tried their lippies. I'm looking forward to that review. I want to know about how long lasting they are.

    1. The lippies are great hon, but they don't last all that long - about the same as a lip butter xxxmhhhv

  4. While I love your bold colours, I do think that it's gorgeous when you use softer shades.

    1. Thanks TP - agreed, gotta have some variety, and actually I don't wear loud coloured clothing all the time (believe it or not ha ha) so those days remind me to tame down the eyes a bit ♥♥♥

    1. So glad you like it hon - I agree it's in the marsala family, just a bit pinker, and a lot more interesting than the usual brownish shades without heading into purple territory ♥♥♥
