Make Up Look: Touch of Turquoise

Hey again everyone - so at the moment the UK is suffering (yes SUFFERING) from its hottest heatwave since 2006. Its hot hot hot and summer is well and truly here! Even though its too hot to cope, I'm loving it, as it means my dresses and shorts get another use that isn't just in Florida. Hallalujah!

So today's look is a pretty easy take on simple summer make up. I know a lot of people don't wanna rock too much make up especially in the heat, but I think this look is nice if you are going out at night, going to dinner, on holiday or just during the day like I have (I've been skipping facial make up and gone for just eyes!) I think summer really is the time of year that you can inject some colour into your routine. A lot of people stick to neutrals but yearn to play with colours so I think coloured eyeliner really is the way to go. Its easy so you aren't putting a load of colour on your lids but still colourful enough to have that "something fun" about your make up. So lets get to it!







 


I used the Sleek Nude palette for this look and added a flick of eyeliner with the Urban Decay 24/7 pencil eyeliner in Flipside. I love these eyeliners, they are creamy and don't pull or tug at the skin and have amazing colour payoff. The Sleek Nude palette is one of my absolute favs when in need of a neutral. It has such a vast selection of neutrals going from light to dark and at such incredible quality, I often pull the Sleek palettes out more so than my MAC. 
So I hope you liked this little summer look and expect some more coming soon :)

What is your favourite coloured eyeliner?

  5. I love pops of "whichever color" and this blue is calling to me :D At the moment my favorite colored liner is Freak from the same Urban Decay Liner line. It's a metallic, almost pastel lime green and it's so cool! xx
