My Makeup: Subtle smoky eye and bright pink lip

Oh hello again!

I don't often do face of the day type posts on my blog (taking photos of my face reminds me too much of those myspace pouting and thinking you were really cool days), but recently I've been thinking that it's a waste if I put effort into my make up just to wipe it all off again, so tonight I'm starting another new feature: My Makeup, starting with a smokey eyed bright lipped look.
Eyes- Maybelline 24HR Colour Tattoo in 'Immortal Charcoal' as a base and Urban Decay 'Blackout' from Naked 2 palette in outer corners / Rimmel Exaggerate Liquid Liner / Next Volumising Mascara 

Lips- Kate Moss Lasting Finish Lipstick in '02'
Base- Have a look at my everyday makeup

I know that I'm breaking a serious beauty rule here as I've gone for statement eyes and lips, but I decided that if I kept the smoky shadow subtle (my eyes can go much darker on a big night out trust me!) and had my lips pink rather than red then I could break the rules and still avoid looking like some sort of Burlesque dancer. I hope so anyway haha. I'd definitely class this as night out make up look though as dark shadow and bright lips together is a bit too much for the daytime. Saying that, I am loving wearing this Kate Moss lipstick at all times at the moment as it's the longest lasting, most pigmented, yet still moisturising lipstick I've ever tried!  Rimmel have really hit the nail on the head with their Kate Moss range and I'm so excited for five new A/W shades being released soon, particularly the nude one. The Maybelline Colour Tattoos  are another thing I love to wear a lot as they are easy to apply, long lasting and make an amazing base for powder eye shadows. I also rather like my hair like this, but it can be quite time consuming curling my hair with ghd's after having to straighten it first and the curls don't always last that long, think I need to invest in the Enrapture totem styler some point soon!

As I said in my previous post I haven't been up to much today apart from lounging on the sofa with my house mates watching rubbish tele, but I am off to my favourite night out later (Pop Tarts, woo!) for my friend's 21st and to end freshers week so expect a bit of a disco pant related dressy outfit post tomorrow :)

Have a great night everyone,
Love Meg

  4. I always break the smokey eye/nude lip rule - but in the exact same way as youve shown here.. I don't go for full on smokey eye and tend to put the darker shadow at the corners. Looking forward to the appearance of the disco pants on your blog! :) xx

  8. In my opinion you didn't break any rule since your smokey eyes are very subtle as you've already mentioned. Love The lipstick color.
