Last week I did a post inspired by my favourite colour purple (Read HERE). It was a lot of fun to do and it reacquainted me with quite a few neglected items in my make up collection! So I thought it would be fun to do more colour inspired posts and this week I’ve chosen to do RED!
I had a BIG vision for this post and it was going to be RED galore! But turns out I actually don’t have that many red items? I ask myself why? I LOVE red!! I am however wearing my new Red PJ’s to make up for the lack of red! :)
Anyhow I did manage with the very few red items that I do have! I have a red eyeshadow by Illamasqua which I got from the Mystery Selection (Read HERE), and to be perfectly honest I had no idea what I would do with a red eyeshadow until now! This little gem actually works great as a blusher and looks great on the eyes teamed with some smokey black shadow!
Red Nail Polish is a classic look and one of the items that I thought I wouldn’t be short of! Unfortunately since I live in practically two places, the majority of my nail polish collection was left back at home and all I had was this REALLY old one by YSL that I got almost 10 years ago.. Gross? In my defence it doesn’t look 10 years old and the formula is still as fantastic as the day I received it as a lovely gift! :P No clumping or thickening! Just High Shine, Glossy Perfection! There in itself restores my faith in high end polishes and reminds me why we pay extra for them, I can’t see my Highstreet polishes being useable in 10 years time? Don’t quote me I could be wrong…
I know it’s still weeks away yet, but I think this makes a nice Valentines Day Makeup look if you need some inspiration!
Now, BIG SHOUT OUT to a nutty Blogger I’ve come to know! She’s as mad as a box of mad… hatters? Lol, I dunno, but she is mad, I’m sure you get the gist! Epiphannie at www.epiphanniea.co.uk has joined forces with me to paint the blog town red this week! Her post made me chuckle out loud! Go see for yourself her madness! She’s hilarious! (READ IT HERE).
Next week I’ll be doing a PINK post! If you’d like to take part just create a post using your selected PINK items and link me to your post so I can check it out! :)
Thanks for reading guys!
