Saturday FOTD...

It was a bold choice for daytime, but I chose to wear MAC Paint Pot in Blackground with a Clinique eyeshadow today.

I did a quick mix on my hand to see how it would look and then decided to go for it...


I applied Blackground all over and then a wash of Clinique Strawberry Fudge over the top. I love how this changed it from a dense black to a deep purple. I then applied 2 coats of Rimmel Lash Accelerator mascara.

I lined my upper and lower waterline with MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and applied 1 coat of Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.

The rest of my makeup was kept fairly neutral to balance it out - MAC Well Dressed blusher, MAC MSF in Soft & Gentle and my favourite lip combo of MAC Myth & NARS Turkish Delight.

I'm enjoying wearing bolder eye makeup lately and love how versatile Blackground is. It's a real must-have and I wish I'd bought it sooner!

I was planning on going to LUSH today, but thanks to suffering from the tail-end of a chest infection, I just did not have the energy to drive that far. I'm planning on going next weekend so I hope I'm fully recovered by then!

Hope you've all had a great Saturday x
