Orange Eyes for Spring

Despite these occasional storms it's really starting to feel like Spring and I couldn't be more ready for it. I'm definitely a summer lover, I'd happily trade in the other three seasons. One colour that always gets me thinking about Spring whether it's on lips, cheeks or eyes is orange, I love seeing a pop of orange in someone's makeup it's such a happy colour.

I've gone for a burnt orange shade which I think looks a little richer and definitely brings out the blue of my eyes. I have a prominent brow bone and not a lot of lid space so strong colours definitely aid in disguising this.

On my lips I have one of the NYX soft matte lip creams in Beijing which I chose because it's another shade I love for spring. However now looking at the pictures I really don't think it goes too well with the orange, oops! Despite the clash I love this product and have been planning to pic up a few more, this is a gorgeous shade but I'd like a couple of nudes in the same formula.

I this post I talked about making peace with my rubbish eyelashes, but the problem with constantly blogging photos of your face is that you have a lot more time to look at your flaws and I've been contemplating starting a love affair with falsies. I've probably only worn false lashes a dozen times in my whole lifetime so it would be a bit of an adjustment. What do you think?

My skin has also been pretty bad lately and I can see how dehydrated it is in these photos. Every time I find myself happy with it I have a sudden break out and end up spreading this all around my face. My current thing is trying not to touch my face so much and it is HARD.

Back to the makeup! I only used two shades to create this almost terracotta eye, Eden and Saturn from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism PaletteI'm slowly working through trying different combinations from this palette but when I first got it I was instantly drawn to Eden and have worn it a few times now with and without Saturn. They look almost identical in the swatches but Eden is definitely a little peachier.

I've mentioned before in previous posts that these eyeshadows are really lovely to use but once again it was a quick an easy application without having to build up too much and zero fallout. I've started to see this palette in TKMaxx and keep in to see if they have any different ones but so far no luck. If you're interested in getting hold of it however they were selling them for £25 as opposed to their usual retail price of £43.
