EOTD: Living in sin with a shady character..

Now that I'm in the habit of using a muslin cloth cleanser everyday, I don't really have time to experiment with my eye makeup looks in the evening.  This is mainly because life is too short to double cleanse.

However, the urge to experiment overtook my resistance the other day and I tried to recreate something I'd seen online.  Now, if I was smart, I'd have kept a copy of the photo that I copied but that's now how we roll around here.
How odd that when I close my eyes, it looks angular yet when my eyes are open, it looks more circular.. I used the brush that is fast becoming my favourite to do the outline of the darker shadow and the MAC 239 for the blending of the lighter shade.

The jobbies (word of the week) I used..
I'm really liking Urban Decay's Sin as an everyday shadow, it manages to pep my eyes up but it also works well as a colour to rub through the lower lashes.  The best thing is that it stays put all day and you don't even up with sparkly bits down your face.  The shadow on the left is a MUA one and I can't rate it highly enough.  I've used the hell out of it and you can't even tell, it's pigmented, smooth and you get change from a £2 coin.

Maybelline's Falsies was a bit of a letdown for me, not as good as the Colossal which I LOVE.  In other mascara related news, I'm finally down to my final four which is big news considering I used to have about a million.


  1. Love this look, Sin is one of my favourites x

  2. Really like this look. I also love Colossal and I think I'm going to repurchase today as every other mascara I've bought recently has been a let down xx

  3. The blending is fantastic! :D

  4. ♥ this look!! Following you.
