I haven't got anything new to blog about right now so why not whip out an old favourite?
Hello MAC Antiqued - a warm coppery rust brown and a must-have. This is an intense colour that delivers in a very wearable way. I swipe it all over the lids, under the lash line and am always happy with the uplifting result. Its a real eye "popper". (Horrid expression, many apologies)
Since going darker (I will STHU about my hair at some point) I have really enjoyed using this on a daily basis. I tend to use a soft taupe in the crease, maybe add a little inner highlight action and then go hell for leather on the mascara front. You know, the usual :)
Face: Benefit Hello Flawless in Honey - far too yellow for me so I did add a teeny tiny bit of Chantecaille Just Skin in an effort to tone it down.
Cheeks: Benefit Coralista - swoon!
Eyes: Maybelline Colour Tattoo in Iced Pink/MAC Antiqued (that battered looking colour in the top right of the quad/a dab of MAC Crystal Avalanche in the inner corner/L'oreal liquid liner
Mascara: IsaDora Extra Volume was initially applied but I had to ramp it up (AKA it was a fail mascara) with Estee Lauder Sumptuous Infinite.
Lips: Dior Addict Charmante lipstick
As you can see I broke out the Benefit Coralista this weekend. Wow - it's been a long time since we met but we fell back into place without hesitation. This is such a gorgeous colour for a fresh glow. I still hate the packaging (I just don't love those boxes) but I am working on getting over it.
In other news I am counting down the days until my holiday to the Maldives. I just cannot wait to have a proper break full of (no working) lounging, reading, watching sunsets and probably a lot of blogging. I am trying to be ultra-organised this year, pulling things from my wardrobe that I know I want to take but there seems to be an awful lot of dresses/skirts/tops. I will need to edit because I am absolutely one of those people that takes a full suitcase and then ends up wearing one outfit for the entire duration of my stay!
