EOTD: bhcosmetics Take Me To Brazil Blue & Red...

TOTALLY missed the boat this month for EOTD's - didn't even post enough to hold my usual EOTM giveaway! But it'll still happen - I'll make something up  Meanwhile, I'm kick-starting tomorrow's March with this weird and whacky look...

If you scroll down the page, you'll see it was created to go with my T-shirt. Didn't have a suitable orange/red shadow in the kit, and thought I'd get away with using a Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Call Me Crazy (bright orange) along the lashline, with the clearest red from the Take Me To Brazil palette over the top. Turned out a little too reddish for my liking, but as usual, I ran out of time to make any adjustments. On the rest of the lid, my base was Eye of Horus Scarab Sapphire Goddess Pencil, with the deepest blue from the same TMTB palette over the top and along the lower lashline, and the EOH blue pencil on the waterline...


Foundation was Mirenesse Liquid Silk, cheeks were Maybelline Master Glaze Blush Stick in Coral Me In dusted with my BRIGHTEST orange blush - Bonfire from the Sleek Flame Blush by 3 palette. One of the few times I've ever worn it because it's just so amazingly pigmented. Love the hue, and it turns out to be totally wearable so long as you're not too heavy handed with the application. Lips were Australis Velourlips Matte Lip Cream in Sanfran-Disco - I'm quite besotted with these, and will review them soon (with swatches)   


And of course, the jewellery...


Hope you have a wonderful start to Autumn, and that your Leap Year day was a special one - next giveaway will be up soon 

Take care of you,

  1. Miss 19 is a huge fan of the Australia velourlips too! I am hopeless at applying eye makeup, except for mascara and brow pencil. Yours look amazing!

    1. Aww thanks so much Janet - I practice my eye makeup application every working day of the week and I STILL screw it up lol, but you'll rarely see the goofs here, I tend to keep the messes under wraps but they sure do happen ♥

  2. Loving the pop of colour on your eyes there, very creatively done! :) I'm obsessing over Velourlips at the moment as well. Just did a swatch video of my little collection actually. I haven't tried SanFran-Disco, but wow what a awesome bright shade, brights look the best in them in my opinion. It looks great on you too! :)
