Ice Blue

So today I’ve been not able to do too much. It sucks but at least I can still do my makeup! I’m feeling particularly wintery at the moment and I’m hoping a ice blue eye look will encourage ice and snow! Like a rain dance but for snow and with makeup! I swear it makes sense in my head! It was one of those unplanned looks where you just keep going until something works! I was surprised by how much I loved it as I normally completely avoid blue eyeshadow but this poor sad and lonely MAC shadow had yet to be used so I had to be brave! I’ve got green eyes which is one huge reason I stay away from blues but I’ve recently dyed my hair and I think my colour palette has changed! Woo hoo!

So like I mentioned earlier I got to use a new MAC shadow, it’s a blue colour called aquadaisic and in the store it made me feel weak at the knees but as soon as I brought it home it was like my beer googles were off and she wasn’t what I hoped. So into a drawer for 4 months she went until today! After swatching it on my hand I got all excited again and decided to just go for it! It’s just the most beautiful frosty blue which is almost a tiny bit turquoise. It’s slightly shimmery and it just feels very winter wonderland. It’s a dream to apply which is a trend I’ve found with MAC shadows. It blends like a dream and the colour payoff is outstanding. This shade has made me decide to go through my stash tomorrow and give some other bits a try!

When I dyed my hair last week I decided I needed red eyebrows. I can’t handle not matching, it just grinds my gears and niggles at me. But it turns out I only own one red shadow. And I’ve had it since my Angsty emo years when I used to smear it around my eyes and team it up with lashing of black liner. It’s a stargazers shadow but it’s so old it no longer has a label! But because I’m unwell and on house rest right now I have to make do! So here is a public apology about the state of my brows! Woops!
