A Rare FOTD: Inspired by M&S

Hey there loyal readers!

I'm not normally so inspired by something randomly, but when I've been in Marks & Spencers of late, I keep seeing this lovely face by the make-up counters:

I thought I would give it a go myself and see how I got on, so here's my take on the look:

I've never been very good at getting the eyeliner flicks right, so I kept it simple and just did a normal line. As for the eyes I used my Sleek Glory palette and just used a gold/cream shade on the inner corners instead of green all over (I was going to work after all).

As for the pink lips, it's my much-loved Chanel Rouge Allure in L'Exuberante. :D

Sorry the light isn't very great in these, it doesn't really show off the green from the Sleek palette well; in reality it's a pretty emerald shade which clashes well with my hair (if that makes sense...)
