My day + an FOTD (:

I woke up stupidly early today for no apparant reason XD
So I thought, rather than go back to sleep I'd get up and get some extra time to do my hair & make up (:
Work was pretty normal, but I did have quite a slow shift today and they always suck cause there is nothing to do. I ended up cleaning the big stainless steel sink because there was actually NOTHING else to do >.<
I was thinking loads about what I could do for the experiment with my Sleek palette, and I thought that since there is a lot of bluey greens in it I'd do a sort of ocean-inspired look (:
After work I wanted to nip uptown to go grab some bits and see what bargains there were and I ended up coming home with this:
This isn't a very good picture to be honest because the lighting in my room is crap but mehhh. XD
1 - Skinology facial wipes. I got these because I needed some new make up removal wipes and they were 2 for 97p in Wilko (:

2 - Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Liquid Eyeliner. I've been wanting some decent liquid eyeliner for absolute ages and one of my friends who uses this says it's awesome, and it's not too expensive, so I figured I try it out and see (:

3 - Natural Collection Solo Eyeshadow in Mermaid. I liked the colour of this and it was 3 for a fiver on all Natural Collection products (:

4 - Natural Collection SunTint Bronzing Pearls in Tropical Tan. I wanted some more Bronsing Pearls because my Body Shop ones ran out and, again, 3 for a fiver on Natural Collection (:

5 - Natural Collection Juicy Lips Gloss in Toffee Cream. I can never seem to find a lip gloss that suits me but when I tried out this tester I actually really liked it, and I needed another product to make up the deal on the Natural Collection stuff so I got it :D

So when I got home, The first thing I did was rush upstairs to start on my experiment XD

This is what I came up with:

As I say, the lighting in my room is crap so my skin doesn't look amazing but all you really need to see are my eyes so I don't care XD
For this look I used:
- The Body Shop Ultra Smooth Face Base in '03'
- Natural Collection Pressed Powder in 'Neutral'
- Natural Collection SunTint Bronzing Pearls in 'Tropical Tan'
- Avon Glazewear Diamonds Eye Colour in 'Golden Lights'
- Sleek i-Divine Curious palette
- Collection 2000 Fast Stroke Eyeliner
- Image Volume & Extend Mascara
- Natural Collection Juicy Lips Gloss in 'Toffee Cream'

In the Sleek palette I used these colours (:


  1. Omgawd Bambi you are such a sexpot! I'm really liking the look of that NC lipgloss, I've NEVER tried anything from Natural Collection (I like 17 too much haha), but I might actually have to give some of their stuff a go just for the sheer hell of it. C2000 Fast Stroke is my faaavourite liquid liner, except maybe Gosh Extreme Art - you should try that one day, it's about £6 I think. :)
    BY THE WAY I tagged you in my latest post!

  2. NC stuff is actually really good, and amazing if you're on a budget like I was/am XD

    I really like the C2000 eyeliner so far too, and I'mma totally look out for the Gosh Extreme Art because it sounds epic :D


  3. It issss epic! It's a leeeeeettle bit sticky compared to most liquid liners but once you get used to it its AMAZING
