Perception




Hi Everyone!

Hope you are all well. It has certainly been a while since I posted a blog piece. The past few months have been rather turbulent. Life took a very surprising turn and with each moment came a new instance which I did not anticipate. It almost felt like my little world was coming crashing down as I slipped away with nothing in sight to hold on to. But time heals. With time, we move further away from these instances and what once seemed almost unbearable, becomes a distant memory, a shadow in the horizon. Life is about perception. Our outlook. The way we view the events that unfold before us really determines how well we are able to handle the situation and recover from the unpleasant instances.

Eye makeup look: The one with the lilac shimmers

Hi Everyone!



Hope you are well.
Today is Bank Holiday Weekend in London! If you ask me, every week should consist of a 3 day weekend. I really think it would help with the work life balance and increase productivity!

As a working girl, bank holidays mean a lot to me. It means I have time to truly dedicate to activities I am fond of such as blogging… so today I bring you another eye makeup look! Aren’t you lucky ;)

I posted this look on my Instagram and it has gained a considerable amount of likes and comments. Click here to check out my page!



To achieve this look, I used the MUA Makeup Academy Professional eyeshadow palettes in Undressed. I wanted to use the shades from this one palette given its beautiful selection of shimmer shades.



To complete the look, I topped it with my black eyeliner and mascara.

And that’s it, a beautiful lilac shimmer look accompanied with a light pink shade in the inner corner of the eyes to make the eyes pop.







Let me know if you give this look a go!


Till next time mes amies
