Skulls & Lace & a Pretty Winter Makeup Look


I was suppose to be posting an outfit post today, but of course my poo-ey camera decided too take completely unusable photos.  Cheers for that one, camera.  

I've never really posted a makeup look before, but this is basically what I've been wearing day to day, when I can actually be bothered to put makeup on.  Yes, it's got to that point where most of the time, I cba with makeup anymore.


I used three shades from my beloved Naked 2 palette for my eyes; Half Baked underneath the lower lash line and all over the lid, Chopper blended into Half Baked on the lid only, and Tease blended into the crease.  Obvs I had to do the standard cat eye flick, using the one and only Collection eyeliner.

It's sooo quick and easy to do, and actually makes me look like I know how to do my makeup, which I do not.


Boots have a deal on Collection at the mo, where if you spend over a fiver (I believe?) you get one of the Work The Colour Lip Butters for free.  I chose the shade Perfect Plum, but honestly I would not recommend actually buying one cos dey is shiiiiit.  It is super moisturizing, but the longevity is terrible and I always end up with it all round my mouth.

Okay, I always end up with all lipstick round my mouth (#lipstickprobs), but this one is so much worse.  Maybe I need to invest in a plummy lip liner?

  8. Shame about the lipstick smearing because the shade is stunning on you. I agree a lip liner would probably help but ugh, I rather have a lipstick that works perfectly without one because I am just too lazy for the extra step on most days. LOL!

  19. Wow, winged liner looks great on you! I never thought of using half baked underneath the eyes - I always saw it as a lid color. Next time, I'm trying that for sure :)

  22. This is such a pretty look! I really love the colours. What a shame about the quality of the lipstick as the shade and sheen of it look so lovely. Maybe try the lip liner thing and see if it helps?! x

  35. I love your make-up but I have to say something about your blog background! The black and white stripes are a lovely idea but they're just too strong on the eye. They really strain my eyes when I'm looking at your blog and it's hard to concentrate on the images you post. :(
