Smokey Eye + Pink Lips Makeup Look

I took these makeup look photos a few months ago and I’ve been mulling over sharing it on the blog. I’m not a makeup expert and I’m usually on the safe/neutral side but on this day I decided to experiment and play around with makeup.

I ended up with my version of a smokey eye which I’ve never really done before. I paired it with bright pink lips using one of my favourite lipsticks. I still have so much more to learn about makeup application especially blending but this was good practice.

If you want to see what products I used, see my post below.

Love Pink

I have always been a girly girl and pink has been my favourite colour for as long as I can remember. I don’t have a lot of pink clothing but I have an abundance of the colour in other forms. I’ve always been attracted to it and it’s a happy colour for me.

I thought I’d share with you my current favourite pink items in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness. If you didn’t know, October is Breast Cancer Month so there are a lot of fundraising and pink-themed events going on to help raise awareness and money to breast cancer through the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation.

September Favourites

The last time I did a monthly favourites post was in June. I skipped July and August because I was still using the same products and there weren’t enough new things to feature as my favourites. Since going to Melbourne, I’ve gotten a few things and I’ve had enough time trying them so I have new favourite beauty products to show you.

MAC Lipstick Swatch

It has been a while since my last lipstick swatch so I thought I’d finally post my MAC lipstick collection and swatches.

I didn’t realise how much my MAC lipstick collection has increased in the past years. I currently have 10 which doesn’t seem too much compared to other beauty bloggers but considering these are $40NZ, it is too much.

To check all the shades in my collection and what they look like on, please click below.

The Perfect Match

For the past month, I have been loving these two products. In my April favourites, I’ve included the MAC lipstick in Craving. That has remained a favourite but what I didn’t expect is to find a great nail polish match for it.

They don’t appear close to colour in the photo above but in real life, they are. I am obsessed with this combination and I know these two are going to be my long time loves.

See below for more photos and swatches.

MAC Toledo lipstick

I am a big fan of MAC lipsticks. What I’m not a big fan of is the price over here in New Zealand. However, I cannot resist picking up items from their limited edition collections. I picked one lipstick from the MAC Toledo Collection. The packaging is amazing. It has a rubbery matte texture and the print stands out from the white bullet.
