Violet Duchess

I've been ill since last friday, so I try to make good use of my time and paint a little :) Nothing too complicated, but I was feeling like some blue/purple combo today. The lid was done with MAC Lovely Lily and Violet pigments, and the crease is MAC Cool Heat, Lime Crime Duchess and Pure Luxe Turquoise Aura. The liner essence Pretty Cool is feathered out in the outer corner and I added some teal sequins for that glamour touch.

My eye colour is not real in these pics of course! Brightness and contrast were adjusted in PS.

Inspired by essence's Moonlight collection, which in turn was inspired by "New Moon", I created a look that's part vampire, part arabic-inspired to complement my new NYX lipstick in Violet Ray. Hope you like it! I don't often wear dark or blue-based lipcolours but Violet Ray is so pretty - it's very pigmented but still glides on easily and doesn't dry out my lips...

Banana Mochi

I did this look yesterday using the Zoeva palette and Fyrinnae's Banana Mochi. I also applied the yellow beneath my eyes but I wouldn't do that again - at least with a shimmery shade. Hello undereye circles!! And I also forgot to bring my really small brush so the crease gradation went up higher than it was supposed to be. Oh well :) The inner lid as brightened applying a tiny amount of MAC White pigment on top of Banana Mochi:
