I got bored & so i decided to play with my shimmer cubes from The Body Shop that i was kindly sent last week. I had an extremely pretty set of colours which i think, make the perfect smokey eye.

Here it is ….

Gosh touch up concealer in no 2
Benefit Erase Paste
Mac select cover up
Bare Minerals Medium foundation
Bare Minerals Faux Tan bronzer
Well dressed blush
Benefit High Beam highlight

Mac Blackground paintpot
The Body Shop shimmer cubes for whole of eye
2true liquid liner (cheap cheap)
Barry m white kohl liner on waterline
Barry m black kohl liner under eye
Lancome Hynose mascara

Mac Hue lipstick
Mac Florabundance lipglass

I just realised in some of the pics i have major “hair-in-lipglossage” dang..that’s really irritating..just wanna pick it out…ah well :D
Hope you like it lovelies
