Thanks Sophia! About Skinflash.. I wouldn't really call it a concealer to be honest. I use it over the concealer because it has light reflecting ingredients (like TSL Touche Eclat) so therefore my dark circles are less visible!

Please excuse the bad picture, my digi-cam is really bad



On the eyes

Stila e/s - Azure (crease), Mystic (inner lid), Platinum (brow bone, and centre of the lid to finish), Sapphire (liner)

Lancome e/s - Madame Butterfly (outer lid)

Stila Major Lash Mascara - Black

YSL TE (please excuse bags and dark circles under eyes, I had to get up unexpectedly after 3hrs sleep)

Lips

Stila It Gloss - astounding (chocolatey raisiny colour)

I'm loving this It gloss, I think it could be an Autumn Winter staple. It goes on really pigmented to begin with, but after a while it wears off a bit so that your lips look like they're cover in hot chocolate (but in a good way)

Face

Stila Sheer colour powder - Shade 1

Stila CC - Peony

Thankyou ladies:icon_love

I wish I did have a better camera Laura. It took me ages to get a shot that looked at all acceptable.

I was trying to do a more colourful look for Dare to Be 'cos I wear the 40s/50s look most days but I think it ended up a bit too colourful.

I was a bit inspired by this picture of Kate Moss:



Nikki: What a lovely compliment!
Thankyou. I love that your skintone means that you can get the looks that us white girls do, like smoky, but with bright colour.

For all you green eyed beauties out there: Here is why purple is SO the right color for you:
If you look at the color wheel, red is opposite of green (which explains why everything at Christmas always looks so pretty) What do you get when you mix blue with red? You get purple. Purple brings out the green in your eyes because of the red in purple.

All colors that are opposite of eachother on the color wheel will enhance eachother.
