Orange, Pink & Lilac

Here's one last fun look before I move onto more Christmas and party appropriate looks for over the holidays, using shadows from Concrete Minerals. Of course I couldn't resist throwing in some multi-coloured glitter! I'd just like to note that the 'Hustle' eyeshadow from Concrete Minerals that I used around the inner corner is actually more of a mauve-pink shade, but in my lighting appeared to be more of a lilac. 

I also used my blue Misaki contact lenses again to enhance the natural colour of my eyes. I still have a discount code enabling you to receive 10% off your Misaki order - just enter "KATEMISAKI" at checkout and you're good to go! 

Also featured in this look is one of the brand new lash styles from Girls With Attitude. Aren't they pretty? GWA have been one of my favourite lash brands for quite a while now, and they've definitely upped their game with these new styles. Can't wait to show you more of the new styles! 

Hope everyone is enjoying December so far and looking forward to the holidays!
