FOTD: There's no smoke without fire ....

I met up with a dear friend yesterday which was really nice as I haven't seen her for almost 2 years! *waves at Helen* Personally I think she should start a beauty/fashion blog of her own as she's gorgeous and I've seen her do some great FOTD's on a forum we used to post on.

Later on I started playing around with my palettes and accidentally created this


Revlon Colorstay foundation in Caramel
MAC Select cover-up concealer
MAC beauty powder blush in Eversun
NARS Luster blush over the top of Eversun

MAC Smoke and Diamonds e/s on lid
MAC knight Divine e/s on outer "V"
MAC Carbon e/s in crease
MAC Solar bits in Black Ore along upper lashline and outer "V" (fallout alert!!)
Urban Decay 24-7 pencil in Zero on waterline
Shiseido The Make Up Mascara base
Chanel Inimitable waterproof mascara


MAC Hodgepodge l/l

MAC lipglass in Chai

Milani crystal gloss for lips in Whisper

What do you think? Oh and is there a way to avoid Black Ore from falling all over my face??

very pretty! Other than the powder under your eyes trick your other option could be to use it wet and see how that works.
