The Body Shop 4-Step Smoky Eyes, Smoky Plum Look!

Hey Guys!

My wonderful best friend bought me the 4-Step Smoky Eyes in Smoky Plum for me for Christmas (she knows me so well!) And I wore it out to my work Christmas do so I thought, from now on, when i get dolled up I'll take some pictures of my looks to show you! The looks I usually post on my blog, aren't ones I'd always wear out so I thought it would be good to show you looks that I wear myself.
Here's the look I did using the palette! It does show you a look you can follow on the back of the palette, but I decided to do something a little different. And to me, it's not exactly plum...but very shimmery! I actually really liked it! Very good pigmentation too!
I do not enjoy taking photos of myself. Haha I'm still learning how to take them of my eye! Brows are HD Brows in Foxy, skin is Mac Select SPF Foundation (I think) in NW10...so pale! Also, Mac mineralized skin finish in fair, blush in Sun Basque and Highlighter in Lightscapade. Bronzer is my all time favourite, Hoola by Benefit.
I hate looking at photos of my lips, but I've tried! Must try harder... Lipstick is a concoction of colours from my Makeup Forever Flash Palette, mainly the pink, red and dark blue.
Here's what the pretty palette looks like. 4 Shades to create some gorgeous looks however they do all have glitter or shimmer to them, so unless you want to shine then I recommend a matte shade of something! I used Blanc Type from MAC to highlight my brow bone, inner corner and under my eye.
And that's it! A nice quick post! I'll leave you with this lovely photo of myself...I get bored easily.
 
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! This is a very busy time for me right now but I wanted to get a post out soon! I will try and get another out this week!
 
HAPPY NEW YEAR! x
