FOTD/OOTD - Bittersweet Mocha

So the other day, I came up with this look - which I found super easy and quick to do; bonus! So I thought I'd share it with you


The eye is understated but in an elegant way - something I think I will be doing again in the future!

I wanted my cheekbones to be more pronounced so dug out my bronzer and highlight!

This was the outfit I chose - a great bandeau dress which is a great colour for the summer days and nights - and I think was a great match for the make up look I went for.

MAC Satin Taupe e/s
MAC Dark Devotion e/s

So in my last e.l.f. order I got another of their nail polishes and decided to give to put it on today! This one is called Moonlight and has a chrome finish to it.
In the end it took 4 coats to be even and if I'm perfectly honest that is 2 too many for how it eventually turned out. I don't think this is the best colour either for my pale skin tone, but alas - we live and learn!

In other nail news, a while back I won a competition from the nailphile and after the crap postal service lost my prize...
She is kindly sending me some other goodies to replace the package that got lost! Yay!
Also - something extra to clear up the staining on my nails. HAL.LE.LU.JAH!

What's your favourite e.l.f. polish?

I have really been loving my Fix+ mixed with vanilla pigment lately and just wanted to share it with you.
It's a great way to brighten up the face and give an all over dewy glow. I love it on the days I'm not wearing much make up or when I've just woken up - it instantly makes me look awake!
