LOOK: Smokey Grey Eyes and Red Lips, Cheryl Cole Promise This Inspired~!


Hello everyone, I know its been a long time since I've posted a look, and I haven't been updating as much as I used to. It's because I've been really busy lately with uni, and some other extra things, and also partly because I've starting to become lazy somewhat with blogging - I feel like I need a bit of a break! Up until a few weeks ago, blogging started to become a 'chore' for me, and it didn't feel right, and I just wanted that feeling to go away. So now I'm starting this thing where I only blog when I actually want to, not when I feel compelled to do so. And because of that, I do have quite a lot to blog about, which I might space in the next few weeks. A lot of new things I bought and some samples I've been sent. But anyway, enough of my babbling! This post is supposed to be about my look!

I wore this look last Friday, when my bf took me to his 'surprise' (which I guessed the day before!), a date and to watch Disney on Ice - 100 Years of Magic at the O2 arena - which was beautiful by the way! All you Disney buffs would love it ♥ I had just been listening and watching Cheryl Cole's new music video of her single 'Promise This' and I was inspired a bit by her makeup when she wore that red-orange dress. I hope you like it! Keep Reading for what I used and more photos!

I used:

MAC Soft Ochre paint pot (base)
MAC grease paintstick in Slick Black (upper lash line)
MAC eyeshadows in Vanilla (highlight), Electra (lid), Smoke and Diamonds (lower lash line), Cork (eyebrows)
MAC pigment in Bloodline (crease)
Bobbi Brown shimmerbrick in Beige (lightest colour as highlight)
L'oreal Double Extension Mascara with Serum Inside (primer)
Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara (black)

MAC Face and Body foundation in C3
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light Peach (undereye circles + spot concealer)
MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus foundation in NC25
MAC Refined Golden bronzer (contour)
Illamasqua Lover blush
MAC Pearl cream colour base (highlight)

MAC Mahogany lip pencil (line + fill)
L'oreal Glam Shine lip gloss in 301 Cinnamon Addict







I was contemplating whether I should re-line my upper lash line with black or not, but decided not to because that might look a bit way too much for a date out! ♥

Here's a screen cap from the video with the makeup that inspired me!


Oh and I've tried quite a few mascaras already, but L'oreal Double Extension Mascara with Serum Inside (primer) + Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara (black) is definitely a power combo for lashes. This combo really makes a false lash effect like no other mascara I've tried so far! Long thick lashes and no clumps or smudges! ♥

What do you think? ♥

  5. @TzeYien89- Thanks hun! My necklace doesn't have a pearl in the middle; it looks like a pink heart-shaped diamond-like thing. :)

  6. @The Girlie Blog- Thanks gal! I don't wear charcoal that much but its nice to experiment with eye colours x

  7. @Kat O- The Glam Shine itself is not that pigmented, it only applies some gold-cinnamon sparkle. Its the MAC Mahogany lip pencil that gives a lot of colour ♥

  8. @Nadine Natalin- Thank you hun x
