FOTD Special Request!

Good evening girls,
How on earth is it Sunday night already, the weekend's just go way too fast!

I had a request from the lovely Skin Scrubs a couple of days ago, who wanted to see me with green eyes.
I kind of didn't want to do a FOTD because I've been ill this week and now my skin is all dry so I'm sorry about that!
I had a rake through my make-up and the only greens I had were in my Front Cover Eye Spy pallette.

There was 3 greens in the pallette - Lime Sherbet, Parrot and Amber Green. I first started off trying to do a day look with the Lime Sherbet and Amber Green but the colour payoff was just not good enough and you couldn't even see it on the camera. I think next time I will try those colours wet to see if it gives a stronger colour.

So next up I thought I would try a more evening/party look using the Parrot colour.
First I primed my eye's using Urban Decay Primer Potion, than I put the parrot colour all over my lid blending out the harsh edges and I also put a little bit underneath my eye as well. Next I put liquid liner on my top lid and lined my lower lid with a black pencil. On my eyelashes I have on Max Factors Xperience Mascara. Here are the results (click to enlarge) -

After I had done this plain green look I thought I'd try adding some of the glitter that comes with the Eye Spy pallette on top of the green. I used Sweet Pea and Ingot -

I had to be quite careful putting this on over the top as it tended to drag the eyeshadow colour underneath so I just tried to pat it on. Here's what it looks like with the glitter -

I was sparkling like a Christmas tree! You can't see the effect as well on the pictures but it does look really pretty in real life and would be good for a party! On my lips I was wearing Models Own Lip Balm in Blackberry.

I REALLY like Models Own Lip Balms, I would say they're more of a stain than a balm as I don't find them particularly moisturising but they give a lovely colour and they smell yummy! :)

Well I hope you like today's FOTD and hope you all are enjoying the rest of you weekend!
Thanks for reading


  1. So pretty!! I know what you mean about the weekend flying by. Back to work tomorrow...

  2. See! I told you that you would look great in greens! It goes really well with your English rose skin tone and hair colour! What a babe!

  3. @Leanne - I know I am not impressed it's monday tomorrow! Wah! :(

    @Annabella Thank you sweetie, I think I will wear this in future :)

  4. really good look and you definitely suit greens! I think so people just look too made up when they wear greens and blues whereas some people can pull it off. I reckon you're one of the lucky ones! :)
