Hey lovelies! Today's gonna be a sucky day coz I only got 4 hours of sleep and am on 3 back to back site visits. I have a feeling I won't even have time to have lunch, booo! Oh and my car breaks totally gave up on me yesterday so I had to drop my car at the mechanic's overnight. Getting a ride to my mechanics soon and crossing fingers my car's ready.

Anyway, I did this incredibly simple look yesterday with one of my fave MAC pigments, Blue Brown. I adore the duochrome look this pigments achieves. The only problem I have with Blue Brown is that it's very red based which can be too much on my already cooler (red toned) skin. So I usually wear it over a dark base. Hope you guys like this look:

    thank you girls :) This look was pretty simple but gives a good result coz of the unique quality of Blue Brown p/m. Oh and I'm so in Love with UD Naked and Buck e/s. I use them in all my smokey looks now
