Liner & Lime

Another straight-forward look today, with the focus again being on the eyeliner. This liner was inspired by a look I did waaaaay back that received good feedback even though it's quite simple, so I thought I'd give it another go.  

These no-nonsense, uncomplicated, liner-focused kind of looks are actually my favourite to do, as being able to get my liner to a standard I am happy with was probably the skill that took me longest to learn so I do quite like to show that off!  

Green is one of my favourite colours although I don't use it too often due to my colouring, but thought this pop of lime green and touch of yellow finished this look off nicely.

Smokey Grey & Red Liner

A simple grey, shimmering smoked out shadow all over with a vibrant winged out liner and a pop of glitter. 

I love using liquid lipsticks that dry matte as liquid eyeliners when it comes to wanting a more unusual colour choice to amp things up a little!

I also used another pair of Misaki contact lenses to enhance the natural colour of my blue eyes. Don't forget you can get 10% off your Misaki order by entering my code 'KATEMISAKI' at checkout!

Self-Made

My first look using the most recent Anastasia Beverly Hills release, the Self-Made palette!

Everybody over on Instagram is going crazy over this 'Deep Purple' eyeshadow and I'm no exception... Being a lover of purple, it was obviously one that I had to try out first, and here is the result.

This look also features my first look at some Misaki contact lenses that I received a couple of weeks ago. The lenses I received are all very natural looking compared to some of the more dramatic style lenses out there, and are extremely comfortable to wear. 

I thought these 2 tones green circle lenses really complimented the shadows that I decided to use today and was really pleased at how they seemed to finish the look off perfectly. You can also get 10% of your Misaki contacts lense order by entering my code 'KATEMISAKI' at checkout!
