blending 4 n00bz.

past few days have been SO rubbish. christ, my negativity this week is something to behold i know, but it's not unfounded. i'm ill, spotty, bloated and on my period even though i'm on the pill. i don't care if that is tmi but basically my body is b-r-o-k-e-n.

i digress. so. i rarely wear bright colours on my eyes. i don't feel as if i have the complexion for it, nor eyes that are pretty enough! seeing nicki minaj (who has darker skin) work amazing shades did give me a scrap of hope but then i remembered that she wears coloured contacts and that is why they look nice. the idea of putting in coloured contacts just to wear a bright eyeshadow seems like too much effort though. when i saw this however, i simply had to have it. rimmel's colour mousse in 'galaxy' is such an amazing shade of purple and easy to work with. with primer, it doesn't budge at all.

didn't feel like doing anything which involved blending either, so i went for solid panda eyes. bit of a 60s feel. couldn't possibly tell you what it's like once you smudge it up!

as it's metallic, it has this really cool (how sad do i sound, "its reeeeely kewl guize") effect on the eyelid, a bit like molten metal.
