Another day, another V-day look.
I’m head over heels for this oh-so pretty purple eye-shadow from Clarins. The shade, Vibrant Violet, is just that. A rich, jewel, bluish purple. It’s a great choice if you’re going for cocktails this Saturday, with a guy or with the girls.
The pigment is deep and the formula smooth. If you like smokey eyes then swap your backs, greys and browns for this pop of colour. It’s a great way to brighten up dull February days, as well as a winter pallor.
MAC Cosmetics have another cracking collection coming up in October, by renowned designed Manish Arora. Arora is known for his use of vivid colour and I love the look of this bright and beautiful eye compact. I can’t wait to get my greedy little fingers on the collection.
If you only buy one new make-up goody this summer then you should make it Clinique’s Shimmering Tones Powder Quad in the limited edition ‘golden bronze’. A big brush swept across the four colour blocks then all over the face gives a gorgeous holiday glow whilst each colour can also be used separately as eyeshadow to devastating effect. It’s a fantastic, multi-purpose piece of make-up kit which I most definitely recommend. I won’t be leaving the house without mine for the next few months!
