Quick Basic Smoky Eye

 Parfait Amour by MAC is one of my favourite colours so yesterday I used it, along with Contrast, to create a super quick and basic smokey eye. Two eyeshadows, a kohl pencil from NYX and mascara completed the eye look.

Most of the time my personal makeup is something along these lines, quick and basic! I don’t often go for lashes, liner and so on as I usually don’t have time plus I like wearing minimal makeup during the day. Lately my skin has become even more sensitive then usual and as yet, I’m not really sure what’s causing it. As a result I’ve returned to using MAC Studio Sculpt as this never seems to aggravate my skin.

Let me know what you think!

    That is so pretty!! You know, a friend of mine told me that apparently our bodies change every 7 years. Which would explain why my skin is now sensitive to things I used all the time in my early 20s. And also, sometimes you use one product that your skin reacts to and it makes your skin sensitive to everything for a while. So annoying!!

      Thanks Aseya, it is incredibly annoying when a product you used for ages suddenly breaks you out, what can we do but go and buy more products to try, ha!
