Smoke & Glitter~ Pic Heavy

So this is a delayed post from the other weekend.. we had hired out a bus for my aunties birthday & decorated it & went out for tea to a place that's about 25 minutes out of town.. by the time we had picked everyone up it took us over an hour & we had (between us girls) 5 bottles of champagne 0_o
Anyway, I went smokey again but decided to add some glittaa & I was going to do lashes but ran out of time 'coz I did my aunties makeup before..... pics of that at the end!

Playing around with the colours.. this is probably more correct.
Before I changed my clothes.. coz I like the way my hair looks he he

Added some lipgloss because I wasn't too happy with the lip colour.... after all of those damn photos >.<
I also layered some Nyx Iris over Revlon Nude Attitude (whats wrong with that picture.. bahah), but that's the basics. For the eyes I first used The Face Shop uh Shimmer Stick in silver then Stila Kitten & then the black shade in that palette, then Pixie Epoxy over that & Nyx Purple Glitter. Cheeks- Nyx Natural Cream blush, MAC Peachykeen & Nyx White pearl chrome e/s

~Aunties Makeup~
 She doesn't wear eyeshadow often but I take after her in loving beauty & makeup, & she lives 2 houses down which makes it very convenient :) I used Nyx JEP in Yoghurt, the Naked Palette (ba-da-bummm) & if I can recall it was Sin, Smog, Darkhorse & Creep for the e/l
Thanks for looking gals! Ha ha sorry about soo many pictures, I take heaps & then go through them all on photofiltre (which is a huge process- I crop, re-size, & compare against each other) & normally its a bit hard to choose between them. Lol :P


  1. Your eyes look so pretty! I love how glittery they look =)

  2. You look like Leighton Meester!
    I love how you did your makeup!

  3. Thanks honeys.... :)
    @little petite I get leighton meester so much but I don't see it *that* much! However I'm a huge fan of hers... I might take some inspiration from her makeup

  4. Just found your blog, your makeup looks so pretty and I really like the light shimmer color. I need to try that more often. Amazing pics of you!

  5. I LOVE the look! I agree though, I like the lip color better with the gloss on top. I love the cream blush on you! Your cheeks look so glowy! Very nice! And your Auntie's makeup looks super pretty as well! Good work!

  6. thank you dale!! I'm following you too :D

    @starryskies thanks so much!! I hate how i take so many pics & then decide that I didn't like it XD hrmm I think I applied more blush then I usually do but I really liked it too, thanks!! <33

  7. You are so beautiful and I love your smile. The blush that you're wearing here really adds a lot to the look and I absolutely LOVE it! I really need to use my glitter more...
