Maybelline Eye Studio Look 5


This is from awhile ago but I have been so busy and then was away for the past few weeks so I am just getting the chance to post now. I got this look using the Legendary Lilac. I used the lightest colour as the brow bone highlighter, the second colour as the lid colour, the third colour as the crease shade and the darkest as the outer corner colour.

Eyeshadow: Maybelline Eyestudio Colour Plush quad in

Eyeliner: N.Y.C in black

Glasses

Ok so I am a person who wears eyeglasses or else I can't see at all. I do wear my contacts daily now though because I HATE wearing glasses all the time. I have been wearing them for 12 years now and I absolutely hate having to wear them. I wish my eyes weren't so bad that I could just wear glasses to maybe see distances and not need them for the majority of the time.
Maybe I wouldn't mind them if I didn't have such horrible vision...My normal prescription glasses are soooooo thick unless they are thinned, and even when they are thinned out they are still really thick looking. It was something I have always been self aware of and they always made me feel ugly. It didn't help that I also got really good grades and did well in school so it added to the whole nerd thing that I used to be teased about.
Last year I made the decision to switch from glasses to contacts. Well I never really made the decision the decision was made for me. I did a magazine shoot and couldn't even see the camera so my eyes kept coming across as weird looking on camera because I couldn't focus on anything. The photographer had told me I needed to model instead of what I was doing as a day job so I decided it would help if I had contacts and started wearing them daily.
Lately I have been browsing a few online stores for purchasing glasses. I'm not quite sure yet about buying glasses online just because I have strange features, well not strange but much smaller than most people. I love the look of those plastic framed glasses but so far have yet to find anything in stores here that actually fit my nose. Which I hate because I am in love with them and that whole look!

Maybelline Eye Studio Look 4



Today I used the Carbon Frost Colour Pearls Marble Eye shadow. I used the marble side for my whole lid then the gray side for the outer corner.
I think so far this one might be my favourite colour for work. I like the smokey eye and the way the marble side of this shadow shows up and actually looks marbled.

Maybelline Eye Studio Look 4


This is the fourth look using the Maybelline Eye Studio collection. This look was done by my sister yesterday. She used the Legendary Lilac quad to create the look.

Maybelline Eye Studio Look 3


This was my Saturday Eye Studio Look with everything on my eyes from the new collection. The eyeliner I used on my bottom lash line is the very black gel liner. It was very easy to apply and went on really smooth and really nice. It's not at all what I was expecting. I do own gel eyeliner in a different brand and its more of a pain to apply, so I rarely ever use it. I think the very black is a little too dark and harsh for me for everyday, so my sister may get it instead of me. I like more gray shades since I have blue eyes unless I am going out at night and need something more dramatic.
The eyeshadow is the sinful sinnamon which I absolutely love. I didn't think it would look great at first because it is a pinkish red colour. I thought it would make me look like I had pink eye, but it goes on like a very natural colour. It looks better on than in the palatte. I love the sparkle in this one and its not too bright that I can't wear it to work every day.

Maybelline Eye Studio Look 2


This was my look 2 on Thursday! I couldn't get blogger to work for me the past few days so today is catch up day! I was also having issues with my camera and the battery died on me so I don't think the macro worked, hence why the pic is blurry and out of focus. I used the irresistibly ivy eye studio quad and love the colour combo! I wore it to work and felt a bit like a light bright though. I know its listed in the neutrals but that green is anything but neutral. I do like the look just not sure how practical it is for work. I guess I can get away with it though because I am younger, and depending on what I wear it may suit the occasion. I did do a photoshoot after that I used this same eye makeup for and it worked out very well. The only thing I find is the sparkles in this line end up falling underneath my eyes and I have sparkle rimmed eyes, but I am in love with how glittery everything in the kit is.

Maybelline Eye Studio Look 1



Today I used the Maybelline Eye Studio Colour Pearls in Khaki Craze. The rest of my eye makeup was my own since I was headed to work and don't have a ton of time to test out the gel liners in the morning. That will be more of a weekend project when I have the time to spend on creating some interesting looks and not something toned down for work. I really like the amount of shimmer in this eyeshadow, as well as its staying power. I still have it on now and it looks as great as when I did it this morning. There is a little bit of creasing, but I have naturally oily skin and all eyeshadow by the end of the day has creased, some moreso than others.I can't wait to try more in the collection!

Matchstick Maybelline Eye Studio Campaign



Today I received my maybelline eye studio look box from Matchstick!! I am soooo excited and can hardly wait to try out everything in the kit! I have already picked out a few favourites just based on colour alone, and there are a few that aren't bold enough for me but I will keep quiet until I actually try some different looks before saying for sure which are my favourite. I can't wait until the weekend so I can have some fun with this one!!
