I started off this LOTD with a mind to pull together something Dior-ish but after ransacking my stash, I gave up on that theme due to my lack of Dior in other departments such as eyeliner, loose powder etc.
Instead, I would just call this yet another simple ole neutral. Simple but with a bit of a twist.
Some of the products that I wish to give mention to in this LOTD would be Dior's 5 Couleur palette in Frost Bloom and also Mirenesse's Inside Out 27H Eye Kohl in Atum. Both of which I had given mention to fairly recently.
While the look appears to be the usual neutral, well, who am I kidding it is a neutral regardless! Though let me break it down for you a little and hopefully give the look more 'insight'.
p.s. that 'line' on my nose is a strand of hair, not some weird contouring going on.
The Eye Look –
I first applied MAC's Groundwork paintpot all over the lids and just over the crease (resulting in that warm brown over the crease), followed by Dior's 5 Couleur Palette in Frost Bloom over the inner corner.
Following that, I applied MAC's Henna eyeshadow (limited edition) over the centre and a blend of Stila In the Garden's Moss and Juniper for definition on the outer-corner.
To add just a bit more sparkle to compliment the gold bits in MAC's Henna, I lined my upper lids with Mirenesse's Atum – the beautiful black liner strewn with gold pearls incase you forgot.
The golden pearly glint from Mirenesse's Atum spices up the look in a subtle way. It isn't overly noticeable but can be seen when it catches the light. It's quite lovely!
I know, enough of my eye already but I am uploading this last one because you can actually spy a little of that pearly green-blue tones from the light Dior shade.
On the rest of the face, I kept it warm and coral-y with MAC's Warmth of Coral on the cheeks and Shy Girl (also from MAC) lipstick on the lips.

And here's another quick LOTD update from me!
While I think the whole ombre hair trend is a little over done, I am actually quite grateful for it because with that around I can pass off my horribly outgrown-and-in-need-of-expert-hands hair as some form of an ombre. ha!
That isn't just my opinion and I have actually gotten some questions from friends regarding that, if I had DIY-ed it or had it done at a salon. Heh.
Though truth is truth, it is overgrown and I will have to do something about it soon. I am making up my mind about whether I should chop it off and try going short (my definition of short is not pixie) or just layer and keep the precious length.
Any thoughts or recommendations?
Thanks for reading!
