EOTD: bhcosmetics Aqua and Pink...

Here's a pretty combo to brighten up a dull winter's day! Aqua is so very dear to my heart - I have quite a few items in my wardrobe in this shade, and I almost ALWAYS pair it with a bold pink lip, so had to match my eye makeup right?

This is one of the most used palettes in my kit. Bhcosmetics Take Me To Brazil - stunning pigments, fabulous hues, mix of matte and shimmer, just about darn near perfect I'd say, especially if you love bright clear colours like I do...


My base was Chi Chi Caribbean Queen Waterproof Gel Liner, but I left a gap close to my top lashline so as to not interfere with the pink (didn't use anything underneath that except a light layer of foundation). Also used the Caribbean Queen on my waterline - these liners are SO GOOD on the waterline, they last for hours, and don't irritate one teeny bit 


For my face, I started with Garnier Miracle Skin Cream, powdered with Australis Ready Set Go Finishing Powder, and then applied Maybelline Dream Wonder Fluid Touch Foundation with my fingers - adore this makeup, it gives me great coverage and my complexion feels so velvety soft. Cheeks were Australis Creme Colour blush in Chocolate Truffle (they don't make this any more sob!) with a dusting of the purply pink pan from the bhcosmetics Glamorous Blush palette. Lips were DB Cosmetics Vivid Mauve topped with Maybelline Color Elixir Gloss in Hibiscus Haven...


What colours do you use as an antidote to the winter drearies?

Take care of you,

  1. I don't get winter drearies! But I do go especially mad with colour at this time of year. My complexion looks its best, I'm always in a good mood, so I amp it up. I love bold pink or red lips but I mostly do a neutral pink so I can go overboard with the eye colours.

    1. Bless you Indie - I'm not so radiant in the flesh but I'm loving the different finishes of the various foundations I'm trying out. It's always good for me to step out of the beaten track to try something new now and then ♡♡♡
