24hr Tattoo Eye Colour in Pink Gold

I know they've been hyped about for a while but I finally got round to trying out this little beaut, whilst on a little jaunt around boots. I thought the colour was pretty, swatched it, liked it but my conscience and some willpower kicked in to say 'No I don't need this.'

...however, after getting home and going about with my life, I realized by swatch still hadn't wiped off. This tattoo effect staying power out lasted my own willpower, so on my next visit into Boots I headed straight for the Maybelline isle and picked it up. The price is very reasonably at £4.99 so it wasn't too much of a struggle on my post-uni purse (conscience, is resting easy).

Swatched in natural day light.

I'm not overly one for eyeshadow, I think it still reminds me of bad school disco makeup and I really struggle to stray from the cat eye flick that I have been applying for at least 7 years (seriously). I thought this would be nice for a summer day time look, I like it as the payoff as it's quite dewy and gives a hint of warmth to my eyes. I've worn it here with my traditional liquid liner but I think it would like nice simply on it's own with a slick of mascara. Need to work up the courage to ditch the cat flick first though!

Not My Type

In the wake of my Fine Art degree I'm trying to find new avenues to fuel my creative urges. Because my course was so conceptual, a lot of the things I'm drawn to are back to my old craftier/illustration roots.

So I started drawing again and in order to find some inspiration I responded to a songwriter who was looking for someone to illustrate his titles, his first one being 'Not my type'.

We haven't gotten round to doing another title as of yet, but it's a start, and something to keep my creative juices (ew) ticking over. As well as this I have been starting to make resin jewelry, but I'm unsure how successful they are yet, resin is very temperamental (and expensive) as I found out from working with it this year. So, we shall see..
