Everyone has a certain set of colours they feel the best in and the most themselves in.  I’ve always been a neutrals girl – bronzes, browns, and champagne colours are my preferred cup of tea. That being said, there are so many flavours of tea out there, and life would be boring if we only over drank the same type every single day. I’ll stop with the tea analogies now. In the world of eyeshadows, I consider neutrals to be the Earl Grey and English Breakfast of the eyeshadow world. Gorgeous, classic, and wonderful, but you shouldn’t necessarily limit yourself to them. There are so many other colours out there – like blue eyeshadow!

BH Cosmetics Blue Eyeshadow colorful makeupI never really loved how I looked in colourful eyeshadow until recently. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved playing with colour – but I felt a lack of inspiration for a while. I decided recently that I needed to get back into what made me fall in love with makeup, and that’s experimenting; just sitting down, playing with products, and seeing what comes out of it! I’ll be sharing more makeup looks like this blue eyeshadow halo eye regularly here on my blog, and on my Instagram!

Affordable Palettes To Create Colorful Looks:

I’ve been playing with 2 palettes from BH Cosmetics for a couple of weeks now, and I’m so  obsessed with them! I love how this blue eyeshadow/halo eye turned out! I’m planning to do a full review of the palettes soon, so stay tuned for that! They are such great palettes for anyone wanting to add some fun and colour to their collection – and they’re extremely affordable!

Pride 2018

Happy Pride month, everyone! I wanted to share the Pride makeup look that I created to celebrate this year. I had so much fun creating this, and seeing everyone else’s incredible Pride makeup looks.

June is a very important month, and a time that I truly believe represents positive change and progress for our society. Our world has a long way to go in terms of equality, acceptance, and inclusivity, but Pride is important to celebrate the progress we’ve made towards being a more peaceful and accepting society.

Sadly I wasn’t able to attend my city’s Pride Parade this year. I did, however, get to go to a special Pride Month showing of Call Me By Your Name with one of my best friends. One of my favourite parts of Pride Month is seeing people express their creativity with Pride colours. Most of this includes colourful Pride makeup (which I don’t do nearly enough of) and colourful outfits –  which I sadly don’t have much of in my wardrobe, as my style tends to consist of enough black to attend a funeral in a different outfit every day for months.

Instead, I thought I would play up my makeup to celebrate! I recently purchased the Huda Beauty Obsessions palette in “Electric” – and instantly knew I needed to use it to create a colourful Pride makeup look.
