Flapinko eyes and a reminder…

How do you remind your readers that your blog giveaway is ending soon, while all the violence and vandalism has been going on in the streets of England? Not without a degree of uneasiness and awkwardness, that's for sure. I hope you will excuse this frivolous post while all this is still unravelling.

This is to remind you to my international ‘flamingo’ blog giveaway has been extended by one day and will be ending on Thursday 11 August, at 23.59 BST (UK time) If you haven’t yet entered this is your chance.


For about a year now, I had been wanting to do a fun and bright makeup look mainly using pink and blue. I had forgotten about it, until I saw the Miami Pop Collection Palm Beach (pink) polish from 17 Cosmetics (see it worn on my nails here). So I decided to inspire myself from the packaging of the bottle to create this makeup look today. I had fun doing it and I hope you like it :)

To create this look, I used mainly 3 eyeshadows: the 2 pinks from the  BeautyUK Night and Day palette, and Vanilla from Mac. The blue eyeliner is Ben Nye Magicolor Liquid Paint in Blue ML07.

I also wanted to use some fancy fluttery and feathery eyelashes to try to mimic the feather on the flamingo. It’s a combination of Ardell 131 and Eldora Lashes (S203). They are very hard to photograph but in real life, they are so much fun. I love them!

and now for the obligatory picture of the full face, decidedly grumpy, and wearing with my usual black photograph t-shirt. On my lips, I am wearing ‘Cotton Candy’ Cream Puff from Collection 2000 which I am absolutely obsessed about at the moment.

That’s it. Thank you very much for reading.

I'm loving the overall look, but the blue eyeliner is my fave... I recently got a blue cream liner... but it's all another shade! Wondering if I can try to replicate this look with colors from my makeup stash... it's lovely!

That eye-liner is tremendous! The whole look is very dramatic. Positively Illamasqua-ish, I would say.

I just wanted to let you know that I love most if not all of your eye looks, but this one is just awesome. I think it's the feather lashes!

Fum said...
