NOTD: Mac's Love and Friendship

Hellllooo loves, hope everyone is feeling wonderful! Life is seriously getting in the way of my blogging,
but my lovely readers and the positive comments always inspires to me to blog whether it is a simple post or
something more time consuming. Hats off to the bloggers that manage to post everyday, whether it is in between school/work or being a parent! :)

This Love and Friendship Nailpolish by Mac has been sitting in my drawer and was very unloved.
I decided to give it a shot as the colour from the outside never seemed appealing to me.
But...this dirty creamy lavender/lilac colour is the prettiest after about 2 coats! It is so elegant and
I have not seen another colour like this, and it is definitely a favorite in my collection now. It is truly a timeless nailpolish that goes with anything I am wearing, that is what I absolutely love about it.

Have any of you tried Mac's Love and Friendship? I would love to hear your thoughts about
this polish and please do share if there is a dupe out there!

Have a great one loves <3!

Eyes: Satin Taupe

Hello Beautifuls! It's been awhile since I have blogged, I hope everyone is doing great!

I wanted to start off by saying that Satin Taupe by Mac is my #1 Eyeshadow, I feel like it can be applied for a day time look, a night time look and it looks beautiful on all skin tones. I jusr love Satin Taupe, if I was stranded somewhere and was to pick one eyeshadow it would be satin taupe!!

Eyes: Satin Taupe e/s, on the outer corner I used Go by Mac for some depth.
Lineur Intense Eyeliner in Carbon Black
Mascara : Estee Lauder Voluminous in Black
I did not add falsies here, but if it is a night time look I would definitely add some
carbon to the outer corner and feather out the e/s along with some flirty falsies!

Face: Cover Fx in B15
Cheeks: Lorac Hot&Spicy Blush and Bronzer duo.
Love how this duo gives a fresh and healthy glow to the skin.
It is definitely a beautiful combo.

Lips: I used Gosh's Darling Lipstick which is a lovely nude
and topped it off with a clear lip gloss to add some shine.

Enjoy the look loves! Hope you all have a great day and
keep a look out for more looks.

PS. Let me know what you think of this FOTD!!

Eyes: Pink and Bronze

Good Evening loves, Hope everyone is having an awesomee day ! I went out for my sister's surprise birthday yesterday and this is the look that I came up with using the Urban Decay Ammo Palette. I love urban decay eye shadows, they are so vibrant, the fallout can be annoying but that can easily be swept away by a fluffy brush.

Eyes: primed with perky paint pot
UD e/s in Chopper,Smog & Sin.

Face: Cover Fx Foundation in B15
Nuance Blush and Contoured with a dark brown eyeshadow ( this works best for me)

Lips: Mac 's Pink Nouveau, set with endless love eyeshadow on top.
(yes I did set my lips with eyeshadow, this is the trick to matte lips, that last all night, and it is also a plus b/c you can make your own colours!

I pulled my hair back and teased the crown a bit so it wasn't flat and added simple pearl earrings
for a sleek and classy look!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed this look for a night out! Getting glammed up is always exciting! :) Have a great one!

My Top 10 Pigments

Hello girls, hope everyone is doing well as the holiday madness is over and we are now back to reality with work or school! The break was refreshing as I really needed the time off to just not think about exams or assignments. I wanted to brighten up the mood a bit and show you guys my top 10 most favorite pigments, I believe some of these are L/E however I am sure you can do a swap or two on makeupalley to find any of these.

Call it OCD, call it whatever you like...I don't know why but I just love keeping my makeup in it's original packaging even though I do use it. I find I can store it better and it just looks more tidy. I tried several times to throw away the boxes but it just doesn't feel right, so bare with me.

Top Left: Gold stroke, Royal Flush, Tea Time, Melon, Rushmetal
Bottom Left: Dark Soul, Mutiny, Kitchmas,Teal, Golden Lemon

What are some of your favorite pigments , leave a comment below as I would
love to try out new pigments and add them to my collection.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a good one!
