FOTD: Valentine’s (and some questions for you guys!)

I don’t usually post my FOTD’s, but rather post pictures on Instagram with product details underneath; would you like to read more about (or even see, if I can work out Youtube and editing software…) my make-up tutorials?

Above is a shot of the products I used in my Valentine’s FOTD; I exaggerated my usual winged liner and added a second smoked-out wing underneath using the different angles of my eyeliner brush to smudge my gel liner. I also carved out my eyes in a subtle cut-crease using the nudes in my Sigma Warm Neutrals palette, eventually adding a little of Illamasqua’s Pure Pigment in Furore to my lid.

My lips were initially a verrrry nude colour using Lime Crime’s Cashmere but I felt it didn’t add enough definition to my mouth in comparison to my eyes, so I added a layer of Illamasqua’s lovely grey-mauve ‘Posture’ on top to create a muted purple colour, and voilà!

So would you like to read more posts like this? Or see how I do it? Are there any looks/ reviews/ topics you would like to see?

I’m excited to read your feedback – hope you like!

The award is for new bloggers with under 1000 followers and offers a virtual pat-on-the-back, recommending the nominated blogs as those that are worth watching!

 

As part of the award, each nominated blog should follow these rules:

Questions

1. Do you have a middle name? If so, do tell…

I do indeedy, it’s Louise.

2. Who inspired you to blog?

I’ve always looked to blogs for make-up and fashion inspiration so I thought I’d have a go myself! It also gives me something creative to do besides my day-to-day potterings.

3. Do you have any pets? If so, what are they, including names…

I have a Lionhead rabbit called Stella, who has just turned two (here’s a picture!).

4. If you could travel anywhere for six months, where would it be?

I would travel through Italy, taking extra long breaks in Florence, Venice and Rome.

5. What is your favourite beverage (alcoholic/nonalcoholic)?

Gin and Tonic! Or, a cocktail served at The Duke of Cambridge in Oxford called a ‘Lemon Meringue.’ From what I can remember (it helped fuel many nights of drunken dancing), it mixes limoncello, frangelico, lemon juice, sugar and an egg white. Mmmm.

6. What is the most ridiculous thing you have ever done?

I sort of agreed to let someone dye my hair a strange shade of orange… I looked pretty ridiculous afterwards.

7. What would you say is the best thing about yourself?

My chocolate brownie recipe.

8. Name your favourite TV series.

Masterchef Australia.

9. What was the last film you went to see at the movies?

Gone Girl – amazingly weird!

10. What is your favourite restaurant called? 

Ooo, this is tricky. It depends on what mood I’m in. I’m partial to a Nando’s! At the moment, though, my favourite is a pub near my house that serves the most delicious scallops and calamari.

11. What is your all-time favourite childhood cartoon?

I remember always watching Hey Arnold as soon as I got home from school. And Recess. And Cow and Chicken.
