TOM FORD eye quads have been one of my most prized possessions in my makeup collection. I don’t have many – just two – because it’s not easy to captivate my heart especially since I work with so many colours and textures daily. I’ve had <Cocoa Mirage> for a couple of years now and was thinking of adding another quad to my TOM FORD beauty collection but wasn’t very compelled until I met <African Violet>.
<African Violet> consists of four opulent complementing shades for anyone to achieve multiple looks, from a bold, smokey eye, to a sexy slash of colour. The reason why I couldn’t shake this palette off my mind was because of the gorgeous orchid purple shade that stood out! I knew I had to get it after weeks of contemplating.
“Be a unicorn in a field of horses.”
That’s right, why be an ordinary horse when you can colour up your life and be a fun-loving unicorn? I’m totally feeling Coachella vibes in this whimsical collection by Too Faced. Indeed, as what the name of the collection says, “Life’s A Festival”, so go on, be happy and celebrate! But first, MAKEUP!
The Too Faced Life’s A Festival Collection is a celebration of good vibes, good music and amazing makeup. Too Faced Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Jerrod Blandino wants you to live your best life, celebrate yourself, and be free with this beautiful collection of iridescent formulas and rainbow pigments! Artist and songwriter, RaeLynn, fronts the collection with her song, “Festival”. Talk about good music!

“Somedays, you just have to create your own sunshine.”
How do you create your own sunshine? For me, I create my own sunshine and rainbows daily, in the form of my eye makeup! Eyeshadows are my LIFE and I can never live without colouring my eyelids. I’ve tried to head out without eyeshadows once and I was very disturbed at how plain my eyelids looked. Do you have this problem too? Tell me I’m not alone!
Well, even if I’m all alone in this, I’ll gladly be on my own because it brings me immense joy to play with makeup every morning before I head to work. Even if means waking up half an hour earlier, I’m not complaining because it’s the kind of sunshine I create for myself every day. The recent Christmas sales got me snagging a couple of new eyeshadow palettes and I just want to share with you some of the looks I’ve done for the past week! Here are 5 makeup looks to make your eyes pop.
Bold is the new black. Ditch the boring, flat beiges and browns. Stand out and make a fashion statement with a daring eye look, using the completely new Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palettes.
Eyeshadows have always been my thing – I love to make the craziest of colours work for me. The possibilities are endless! With the new generation of eyeshadow palettes, you can express yourself with dimensional neutrals, brilliant pops of colour with four fashion finishes. “With any way you style your eyes, you’re sure to make your marc (mark)”.
Pink is a universally flattering shade for not just your lips, but also your eyes. The colour pink is the colour of universal love of oneself and of others. It signifies love, playfulness, sweetness and simply, femininity. It’s easy to find the perfect pink lipstick but I must say that it’s not as simple to find the right balance of pinks to dress your eyes without looking like you’ve been bruised in the eyes.
To celebrate the sweet blush shade, Make Up Store came up with a limited edition palette that brings you elegance and femininity, the 12 Shades of Pink. Want to see how I get this romantic, flirty look? Read on for swatches and a step-by-step pictorial!
