From last week

I was wearing:
ELF studio concealer and highlighter in 'fair'
ELF studio Complexion perfection powder
Illamasqua powder blush in Nymph

Illamasqua 'synth' eyeshadow
Collection 2000 glam crystals eyeliner in Rock Chick
Lancome Oscillation mascara in black

Mac lipstick in Gladiola (from the Dame Edna collection)

If i do say so myself i think i look quite pretty.

Weird as this might sound but i'm considering bleaching my eyebrows. It might look freakish without any makeup on, but with blonde eyebrows i could play with them so much, make new shapes, play with the colours and so on. I sometimes like to have really brightly coloured eyebrows, and while it does work with my brows already it would be so much better with a lighter starting point. The main problem would be when the roots start to grow through, i bet it would look AWFUL.

I had a nice night out yesterday, went with claire to see some friends of mine playing a gig. I'm thinking about starting a weekly post about music because i am a HUGE muso. Would anyone be interested in reading my thoughts about various musicians i either love or hate?


  1. Hi how are you?

    I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment. I have a blog also obviously and would like to invite you to become my blog friend...?

    I mostly post about my Southern California experience through my art, and a Latino male perspective. Maybe you can become my pal, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay. Well I hope to hear from you soon...

  2. Hi Jesse
    thanks very much! I'm glad you found my blog interesting and i'm following you now :)
    I'd love to hear what you think of my paintings and illustrations if you care to comment.

  3. You look so pretty. :-) I am not a huge fan of pink but I have to admit I like grey and pink together.

  4. you look so cute!

    in that last picture you look like a old pin up girl!

  5. Lovely outfit. Dark eyebrows look amazing with blonde hair. Wish i could go blonde:(

  6. Pretty! Thanks to you and other makeup bloggers I'm starting to use lipgloss and lipstick. A really nice MAC makeup counter assistant put some MAC Magenta Lip pencil, Up The Amp lipstick, and Morning Glory Lipglass and it was a really nice look with my eyeliner. I never knew I could pull off bright, shiny magenta. Wow.

  7. Ohhhhh I want that eyeliner. The lip color is great on you!

  8. You look so cute! And your makeup is perfect! Again...I want more glam crystals eyeliner! No fair!
    I would read about your thoughts on musical artists. :-)

  9. Really pretty look :)

    And yes to the music posts, am a massive music fan and read lots of music blogs too but would be interested to see more music posts in the beauty world! If you're interested here's my sporadically updated music blog (I like to take time over the posts and time is not something I've had lots of lately!) -

  10. I just love this look, the makeup is lovely with your completion. Its nice to see someone as pale as me! :) all my best

  11. Dissolved Girl:
    Thank you! Pink is my favourite colour :P

    Awww, that's such a lovely compliment, i do so long to be a pin-up girl.

    Thank you! I do like my dark brows, but i just feel like a change, and if i bleach them i can always draw them in dark again :)
    My hair is in horrible condition from all the bleach, but it does look nice :P

    Thank you :) I really just cant go without lipsticks and glosses, i feel naked without any colour on my mouth! I LOVE Magenta Lip pencil, its gorgeous on it's own or with lipgloss. I really need Up the Amp and i don't think i've ever seen Morning glory!
    Bet it all looked lovely on you :)

    It's the best glitter eyeliner i've ever tried and really cheap, about $7 dollars i think :) And thank you very much!

    Aww thank you! :D If you ever wanted to do a swap with me i'd send you some glam crystals :) they really are the best ive ever tried!
    And thank you, i'll be posting some soon :)

    Thank you! :D
    Id love to be able to share my passion for music with people. And i'd love to know your opinions too! (have added your blog too :))

    Thank you so so much!

  12. I want that lipstick so so much! I think It might just be the association with gladiolas and the love of my life Morrissey but....I need it! Shame its going for like, £30 on ebay atm :/


I love comments and try to reply to every one i get.
