EOTD's & Giveaway!...

Was absolutely staggered when I looked back and found that the last EOTD I posted was in August last year! Had lots of issues that needed my full attention round about that time, but they're pretty much all sorted now (the move closer to Sydney was a biggie), so it's time to resume where I left off with uploading some eye looks  I've been posting some fairly regularly on Instagram, but it's not an every day occurrence like it was before - I'm still catching up with years of lost sleep, and haven't been allowing sufficient time in the mornings to do my eye makeup perfectly enough for closeups, plus the fact that age is taking its toll, and there are some days when my eyes are just too wrinkly (boo!). Anyways, I'll still be uploading the better ones from time to time, starting with the selection below. And to celebrate, there's a fun giveaway at the bottom of the page ...

For this first look I used MBA Cosmetics Deep Sea - love this as it's matte, perfect as a base, and for lining the crease. As I age I'm finding a whole bunch of things are losing definition, so these days I often have to draw the boundary lines. While I'll always have a crease where the lid meets the hood, the inner part of the lid seems to be blurring into the rest of my eye area, so a dark matte shadow and a fine angled brush is the way to go. I topped the matte blue with Colourpop Too Shy - a stunning metallic shadow. On the waterline is Eye of Horus Teal Malachite Goddess Pencil, and on my lips is NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in Run The World ♥ For a bit of fun I've started including my shoes in the jewellery/outfit photos!...

For look #2, I went back to an old favourite - Sugarpill Midori, also a matte, and one of the prettiest emerald greens in my kit ...

For the base, and on the waterline, I used my latest fab discovery - Colourpop Creme Gel Liner in the shade Teaspoon, which was a perfect match. This is a brilliant liner - it's matte, lasts for many hours on the waterline, and doesn't irritate. As you can probably guess, I'll be buying more of these . The lipstick I'm wearing is Rimmel The Only 1 Matte Lipstick - shade Keep It Coral. Very nice formula, but still a little drying on my lips ...

Look #3 was a trip down memory lane to my favourite deep blue eye shadows of all time - L'Oreal Infallible All Night Blue. There's nothing else I've found that compares with the pigment intensity, and the blacky blue base has a brighter blue sheen which catches the light beautifully...

On the waterline again is Eye of Horus Teal Malachite Goddess Pencil - about 3 layers including the shadow fallout, which is why it looks darker than in the first pic. The lipstick is one my darling friend Amy from healthandbeautygirl sent to me recently - it's a crayon made by The Beauty Crop, they call it a PJS Smoothie Stick, and the shade is Guava Nice Day. Super moisturising and super comfortable - absolutely love it, thanks again sweetie! ...

And for EOTD #4, I pulled out my Chi Chi Oasis palette, and used the matte black topped with the shimmery silver...

Waterline was Eye of Horus Charcoal Obsidian Goddess Pencil, lips were NYX High Voltage Lipstick in Rags to Riches. I picked this lippie up from Priceline for $5 as it's discontinued - I'm so sad as it's the prettiest shade ...

Now for the best part, the loot...
