Here’s what I wore Wednesday October 22. I really like this sweater and I think it looks great paired with the skirt. The sweater has gold shimmer/glitter in it, so I decided to wear gold jewellery with the outfit. I also decided to base my eye make-up around the colours from the sweater, but you’ll a closer look at that tomorrow.

Here’s the make-up I wore Tuesday October 21. I wasn’t going anywhere that day, so I had some extra time to play around with make-up and this is the look I came up with. I’ve played around with magenta eye shadows before (e.g. here) and I just love that type of colours. Actually, when it comes to make up (and many other things) I really love pink and purple and everything in between.
(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – Sleek Vintage Romance eye shadow palette (shades: Marry in Monte Carlo + Honeymoon in Hollywood + A Vow in Venice) + Stila In the Light eye shadow palette (shades: Bliss + Ebony) + Stila All Over Shimmer Duo highlighter (lightest shade on browbone), mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lipstick: Rimmel Lasting Finish by Kate matte lipstick in 105)
If you like MAC you have probably already seen a ton of hauls and reviews on this year’s holiday collections, but I thought I would show you what I’ve purchased from the collections anyways. When I went online to check out the collections I decided to get a product from each collection (Keepsakes and Heirloom Mix). The Objects of Affection sets weren’t in store at the time. Later on I bought one more product from the Heirloom Mix collection in one of my local MAC stores.
First I decided to get one of the limited edition holiday eye shadow palettes. I got the Keepsakes Plum Eyes palette, and the colours are beautiful (you can see the names of the colours here). And can we talk about the packaging for a minute. I think it’s absolutely gorgeous; the glitter, the pearls around the edges, and the Victorian style emblem. So pretty!
Of course I had to get my hands on one of the lipsticks from the Heirloom Mix collection, and when I saw there was a hot pink shade, I knew which one I wanted. It’s a limited edition shade, and it’s called No Faux Pas and has a matte finish. This shade is amazing! Because of the matte finish (which looks gorgeous on the lips by the way) it literally lasts all day on the lips. And the packaging of this collection is just as gorgeous as the packaging on the Keepsakes Collection (and Objects of Affection). It reminds me of a starry night.
A few days after I received the package with the two other products I went to check out the rest of the collection (in real life) in one of my local MAC stores. I had regretted not to buy one of the miniralize blushers, and when I swatched this one in store I couldn’t resist. It’s the one called Modest Blush and it’s the most perfect everyday blush shade. It goes with any make-up look, and because it’s a miniralize blusher it has a bit of shimmer in it which is really pretty; not to much at all. I’m really satisfied with these products and I wish I had all the products from the collections:)
Here’s the make-up I wore Friday October 10. I didn’t bother taking outfit pictures that day, because my outfit was similar to some outfits I’ve posted earlier on. I really liked my make-up though, and thought I would share it with you. I’ve actually been wearing a taupe eye make-up like this one quite a lot lately. It’s still a neutral eye make-up, though a bit more intense than my go-to neutral eye look, but you can still wear it with a lot of different lip colours. Here I decided to go with a neutral pink lip.
Here’s how I wore my hair with this outfit. The hair twisted around the hair elastics only stayed that way for a few hours which was a shame, because I quite liked it. I guess my hair is too straight and smooth to stay in place all day.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. It’s similar to a few of the other make-up looks I’ve posted on the blog, but I just LOVE hot pink lips! Especially paired with a simple and neutral eye make-up. This hot pink is the MUA Luxe Velvet lip lacquer in Funk.
Here’s what I wore Thursday October 9. I love this outfit. It’s casual girly, and those type of outfits are my favourite everyday outfits. I love mixing different textures and putting together nice colour combinations (at least they’re nice in my opinion).
