I'm on fire this week with FOTD's! Funny enough my stressed out self is more imaginative and creative! Weird but it works for the blogging I suppose....

I'm a fan of looks that can achieve maximum impact with minimal number of products used. For that reason, I love me some cat shape smokey eyes. I only used two eyeshadows for this look; an all over look plus the purple to draw and fill in the cat eye. I left it un-blended as I wanted the cat eye to be dramatic and more high fashion, hahaha! It took a lot of effort not to blend the line though, I literally had to hide my MAC 217 brush!!! I also wore my beloved MAC Snob l/s, AGAIN! I know Snob is not really a fan fave but I love it on me and currently half way done my second tube. One of my first MAC purchases and still a fave of mine with weekly use.

Btw, if you follow me on Instagram, you probably see these looks a day or so before I post them here. My Instagram user ID is shadowy_lady.

Anyhuw, here's the look, hope you like :)

Prolongwear foundation - NW25
Azalea Blossom b/o (LE - cannot think of a dupe sorry)

Painterly p/p - base
Solar White e/s - lid (LE - sub Vanilla pigment)
MUFE #92 e/s - to draw and fill in the liner
GA Eyes to Kill mascara

Snob l/s
Clear l/g




Outfit of the day is this paisley dress from Smart Set (super old) that you've probably seen me wear a lot. It's one of the few non-maxi dresses that still fit my preggo belly. The white denim jacket by Gap is also a summer staple of mine. I'm not a fan of blue denim jackets but the white I wear over and over again. Nude sandals are Nine West's:

    I love this makeup look. I have been wanting to use purple shadow, but was on the fence about it. This has sold me.

    Leelee - thank you. I always say, if you pick one eyeshadow that's colourful, make it purple :)
