Neutral Shades!

Hi lovelies!

I'm still alive! I'm so sorry it's been two weeks since my last post, I caught a terrible bout of the flu and it really took a huge toll on me! I actually can't remember the last time I was that sick! I was given antibiotics by my doctor, which helped me get over the flu, but unfortunately, really upset my tummy! I've basically just been going to work, then coming home and crashing, which didn't leave much time for blogging. I'm feeling much better today than I have for the past few days, so I've been visiting my favourite blogs to try and catch up!

I just wanted to share two of my recent EOTDs with you. I took a break from eye makeup for almost two weeks, but I picked up a new BYS 18 shadow palette (it's called Neutral Charm and retails for $7.95 from Kmart!) over the weekend and couldn't resist playing with it yesterday.

I used the gold shade (marked #1) all over my eyelid, then the aubergine shade (marked #2) in the outer corner/crease and just under the lower lashline, and finished with the steel grey/greenish shade (marked #3) to contour in the outermost corner. I apologise for the labelling on the photo, it's the first time I've tried to mark my photos and I think I need to use different software. I finished off with some brown eyeliner and Lash Architect 4D mascara (which incidentally, does not help my stubborn lashes hold a curl). Oh, and I also added a dash of gold pencil to my lower waterline.

Please click on this to enlarge the numbers.

Here's the finished look!


I quite like the palette, it's really metallic but the shadows are quite 'creamy' and blend together beautifully. I wore them all with primer underneath and they lasted all day without creasing!

I promised a second EOTD, and that's the one I wore to work today! I kept it quite light as I was wearing coral lips, so I wanted to keep the eyes neutral.

I used my Essence holographic effect shadow in Mystic Lemon with a bit of a bronze Inglot shadow in the crease, Revlon colourstay eyeliner in brown (top and lower lash line) and Max Factor false lash effect waterproof mascara to finish.

I hope you enjoyed that, lovelies!

Now, after two days of wearing neutrals/browns, I think I feel a colour EOTD coming on tomorrow...

Much love,


  1. Definiately a charming palette. I also haven't noticed this around before. I've only seen the ones that Kat and I bought and the other old stuff they've had for ages. Love the looks and I think the essence mystic lemon really suits you.

    1. I agree, very charming! :)

      Let me know if you can't find one and I can scout around for you!

      Thanks, hun!

  2. Looks gorgeous! I'm really loving the BYS palettes at the moment! They are surprisingly good!

    1. I agree, they are surprisingly versatile, aren't they?! And good quality too!

  3. I'm glad you're feeling better N! It can't have been fun to be that sick so it's good to hear that you are back in good form=)

    The first EOTD is absolutely stunning and the second is beautiful too, perfect for a bright lip Xx

    1. Thank you, Ing! :)

      It was awful, so happy to be feeling halfway human here. ;)
