fire in our bellies and furtive little feelings

Friday, March 26, 2010
Hello! Happy 100 followers!! Squeee! I'm so pleased. (I'm always gushing in these opening sentences but it honestly baffles me silly that 100 people want to read this, honestly!)

I've had a busy couple of days, as I mentioned in my previous post I went to take photos of my friend Frank Turner who played at the Roundhouse in Camden. After he sorted me a photo pass I suddenly realised I didn't have a ticket, and was terrified they wouldn't let me stay after the first three songs I could photograph. I normally follow him into little venues that don't really care very much about things like this and i'm not an established photographer really so i'm not used to venues like Roundhouse, Brixton etc. Anyway after snapping the first three songs (and absolutely loving it!) I was escorted out of the venue to leave. I walked past the front desk and the woman ushered me over, I found out she had saved me a standing ticket so I could get back in!!! I've honestly never been so overwhelmed by someone's kindness! She didn't have to do that, at all. So I ran back in as quickly as I could, found all my friends and sang my heart out all night. One of the best nights in a long time. :)

Anyway I was going to show my outfit I wore but I decided instead i'd show the eye look I did, just to mix it up a bit - i've done a few outfit posts lately.



Products I used:
No7 Sultry Eyes Palette (the highlight and the pale purple)
MAC Trax
MAC Fig 1.
MAC Devoted Poppy (black - Fall Deeply)
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Bourjois Liner Feutre in Black
Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black Mascara
MAC Feline Kohl Power
Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in El Dorado

MAC 219
MAC 217
MAC 213

First apply Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base to the eyes. Then take the 213 and apply the highlight from the No7 palette on the inner third of the lid. Then apply the pale purple from the No7 palette to the middle third and blend softly with the highlight on the inner third. Take Trax and apply to the outer third, and softly into the crease and then blend gently into the pale purple. Using Fig.1 through the crease with the 219 blend softly on the inner and slightly on the outer crease. Take the highlight and blend to soften out Fig 1. on the outer crease. Blend a little of the Black in the outer corner and soften into Trax+ Fig 1. Put the highlight underneath the eyebrow to highlight then blend softly into the crease. Using the Bourjois liquid eyeliner, carefully line the eyes with a thin line on the top of the eyelid. Take it gradually into a wing at the sides (think Winehouse/Gaga). Blend a little more of the Black on top of the line to soften it out.
Line the eyes with Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Corrupt on the lower lash line, and then use Feline Kohl on the waterline.
Finish with Bourjois Volume Glamour Mascara primarily on the top lash as opposed to the bottom lash.





Sorry I feel like these photos are a bit rubbish, I always leave it until late in the day to do posts and miss out on all natural lighting. It's a lot brighter in real life :( !

The London Lipgloss of today was:




Mac Dazzleglass in Internationalist. It's from the permanant line and is a bright blue pink with big speckles of bright blue sparkles. My lips are very pigmented and so this pink very almost matches my lips so when I wear it alone it looks just like my lips are coated in a gorgeous coat of blue sparkles. It's not a conventional choice but I love it, and it's really different for a night out.

And finally to finish, here are a couple of pictures from Frank Turner on Wednesday:






Thanks for sticking with this long post! 
Lots of love, Z xox
