After sharing the haulage and swatches of the new essence Love & Sound Collection in this post I thought it would be helpful to share a makeup look with you - especially since I've barely had the Glastonberry eyeshadow off my lids since I bought it! The collection is inspired by the festival season and I find that really cute but doesn't fit my interests in the slightest! I'm one of a rare breed who avoids concerts/festivals/gigs and would rather chill at home and watch a concert DVD or a music video channel - having said that, the best concerts I've been to are Nicki Minaj's stadium tour and an intimate gig Katy Perry did in Melbourne before she really became famous. Enough of the rambling, onto the makeup look!
These snaps were from the first wear of Glastonberry after I returned home from shopping with Mumma Bovary, and initially I had a few of the new Urban Decay Naked Smoky eyeshadows on and just used my finger to press Glastonberry all over the lid. This super simple application has become my favourite way to wear this shade - throw your usual neutral shadows over a primer (I'm currently using the Nars Smudge-Proof Eyeshadow Base) and then dab on some of this to spice it up! I'm not normally one to use single shadows, I'm much more of a palette kinda gal, but this is one I'm sure I'll put to good use!
I'm sporting my pretty standard makeup look for the rest of this post since it was all applied for a day with my Mumma - my L'Oreal Infallible Matte Foundation with the matching primer underneath, and a dusting of the essence ombre blush Sunset @ Centre Stage (which is a 'throw it on with anything' kind of colour for me) which I applied over my makeup just to try it out.
