Valentine's Day Series : Coral Maroon Passion

Wednesday, January 26, 2011



Continuing the V series with only a few more weeks to go, I'm hoping I can get another handful of looks into the series. Now who said make-up on Valentine's day had to be the typical colours of reds and pinks .... well I don't like to play safe :o) and I'm kind of still playing it safe BUT it's not the usual lovey colours right !?

As I said in my previous post, I'm adoring corals right now I mean to death. I do think it's going to be my everyday colour for S/S '11.







The above eye trio was taken with a flash. You can see that the browns I used have a purple undertone to them.



I get quite snap happy once I get lighting I like lol. I'm adoring the look to tie in with the current trends and to also not to play safe on V.day.

  7. I love the look! I don't think I've ever tried a look with coral eyeshadows, but I love that it has that pop of colour, and is neutral at that at the same time! Double points for using a colour in the 88 palette! *runs off to try this*

    I tried your rope braid the other day by the way, but it didn't look as full as yours :( I think I'm going to have to tease or build up volume in my hair to make the braid look prominent.
