Official Look

I usually keep my newest make-up products on top of my vanity instead of putting them in the drawers with the rest of the make-up. The idea is that I would then get to know the new products and try them out a few times so I would get the hang of using them and remember them better later. I've had the My Beauty Addiction eyeshadow quad for over a month and I still don't want to put the shadows away! I find myself reaching for them instead of my usual neutrals.

The quad doesn't have a name, but it was one of the "Palette of the Week" sets at My Beauty Addiction. I was a bit disappointed with one of the shades, Illumi, not matching the shop picture, but the shade does still perform well. The shades are pink, but muted pinks, not too bright and obvious. I can pass these off as neutrals in daily use, and the red base colour really sets off my green eyes.

This look was done for a home photoshoot so I could get some official looking face shots to use in work related situations, when game websites and magazines occasionally need a picture of me. While the make-up looks quite heavy in close-ups, in the final pictures it's not that dark, the lights fade make-up and the camera never seems to capture it the same way as it looks in the mirror.

My Beauty Addiction shadows in Sangria, Illumi, Blossom and Ruby Slipper, Red Cherry false lashes, Aromaleigh Obsession on the brows and Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet eyeliner in Plushie.


  1. I love pink eyeshadow looks <3 I recently made it work with me so now I'm looking for all the looks <3

  2. This is such a pretty look, it goes great with your eyebrows!

  3. This is lovely! I need some new pink shades!

  4. Looks great! I love my pinky shades on my eyes, I never would have thought pink would look alternative in the old days, but it does and it is awesome!
