Sunset Orange Eyes

IMG_5423 IMG_5385

 

Orange is not a colour we tend to wear on our eyes but it is actually very wearable and can really warm up our eyes. I used this Inglot eyeshadow in the shade 363 which is a gorgeous burnt orange colour. I attempted to do a cut crease and it didn’t turn out to badly. So here’s what I did;

On the eyes: 

All over the lid I used MAC Blanc type: a neutral skin toned eyeshadow.

In the crease I used Inglot 363 (orange) on a MAC 217. I built up this colour until it was intense.

On the lower lash line I blended Inglot 363 to meet up with the crease.

For mascara I used Benefit Roller lash (my new favourite mascara)

 

What do you think  of the summer-y orange look?

Make Up Brush Cleaning

20131210-201730.jpg

Does anyone else find cleaning their brushes therapeutic, or do you find it a laborious task?

I like cleaning my brushes and if I had the time I would clean them everyday, but sadly I don’t so I usually do a deep clean once a week. I clean my brushes with hot water and Simple anti-bacterial soap. Once they are clean, I then do a second clean with the MAC Brush CLeanser and wash it out with hot water.

I leave them to dry in the airing cupboard overnight and they are ready to go in the morning.

How do you clean your brushes?
