Face of the day - March 3


I'm working on getting out of a makeup rut this month, so when I put on my makeup before heading back to my night class (insert loud yawning noise here) I dipped into a colour palette that I hadn't touched in ages - the cool-toned pinks.
I wanted to use some eyeshadows that I hadn't used in a long time for my "Eyes of March" entry so with that, I had to pair my blush and lipstick accordingly because cool-toned pinks are fickle and if you match them up with anything too warm you end up looking a bit strange.

I can't pull them off as well as a platinum blonde or a black haired woman because my hair has quite a bit of red in it at the moment, so the warm red and golden undertones tend to clash with cool-toned makeup, but anyway all blabber aside, I managed to pull it together somehow and this really made me want to tone my hair to a bit of an ashier brown haha...


Face:
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation #5
Laura Mericer Translucent Powder
Benefit Powderflage (under the eyes)
MAC MSF Natural Medium Dark as a contour
NARS Sin Blush

Lips:
YSL Rouge Volupte #7 "Lingerie Pink"
Eyeko lip gloss in Primrose Hill

Now for today's "Eyes of March":


Urban Decay Primer Potion (base)
MAC Seedy Pearl eyeshadow (all over lid)
MAC Circa Plum Pigment (outer half)
MAC Beauty Marked (outer V)
Milani Liquif'eye eyeliner
Eyeko Big Eyes Mascara

Again this would look amaaaazing on someone with more ashy brown hair or on a blonde, I'm a bit scared of cool toned pinks but hey - this month is all about expanding our horizons, right? ;)

Hope you're all having a great day!
