three ways to rock birds and berries eyeshadow (liberty of london)

Monday, April 19, 2010
Hey everyone! Hope you're all well and this volcanic ash cloud hasn't got too many of you down. On the plus side (probably the only plus side) there haven't been any planes over London and it's quite beautiful, surreal, but beautiful. Those of you back at Uni today, I feel your pain. I feel it!
I had a busy weekend, our flat was invaded by about 7 boys (thanks, Ben!) and i've had a 3500 essay to chow down on. Because of the essay I had to miss out on seeing one of my bests, Amy, so i'm totally looking forward to a weekend full of girlie fun this weekend off!

Now the only piece I bought from MAC's Liberty of London collection was the Birds and Berries eyeshadow, and I absolutely love it. I don't own any other eyeshadows close to it, infact i'm more or less a neutrals girl, so i'm going to show you how to work it into your neutrals, if you're the same as me. Of course if you're bold and brave you'll be mixing it with other blues and bright colours you already have, I am envious. But I don't own the entire MAC range (awww maaan) and so this is how I plan to integrate it into my eyeshadow collection :)

So this is Birds and Berries:


Look one: Soft brights



Products I used:

Urban Decay eyeshadow in El Dorado
Urban Decay eyeshadow in Baked
Urban Decay eyeshadow in Vert
*Birds and Berries* (MAC)
MAC eyeshadow in Night Maneuvers
Bourjois Volume Glamour Mascara
Bourjois Liquid Eyeliner in Black
MAC Greasepaint Stick in Black (Style Black)


In this look, Birds and Berries is blended softly into the crease with golds and greens on the lid. I blended it softly so it could be worn during the day. If you were after a more dramatic look, layer up the colour to build intensity.


Look two: Sparkles and Blues



Products I used:

MAC eyeshadow in Shroom
*Birds and Berries* (MAC)
MAC eyeshadow in Fig.1 
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Eldorado
Lancome Hypnose Mascara
MAC Greasepaint Stick in Black (Style Black)


In this look, Birds and Berries is used all over the lid as a wash. It is complimented by Fig.1 darkening the crease and bringing a new dimension to the colour, and Urban Decay's Eldorado bringing a bit of sparkle to the under eye.

(not sure what the random splodge in the corner of these photos is about, i wasn't concentrating obviously! very irritating >.<)

Look three: Neutrals go pop!



Products I used:

MAC eyeshadow in Shroom
MAC eyeshadow in All That Glitters
MAC eyeshadow in Sumptuous Olive
NARS eyeshadow in Mekong
*Birds and Berries* (MAC)
MAC Greasepaint Stick in Style Black
Lancome Hypnose


This look is a standard neutral fave - mix it up by using Birds and Berries underneath the lower lash line. The green undertones in Sumptuous Olive help to draw the blue into the look, and make this stand out but flow together all at once!


So there you go! Those are just some of the ways i'll be wearing my Birds and Berries this summer! 
What do you think of these kinds of posts? Should I do more focusing on just one eyeshadow or was it all too much information? Do you own Birds and Berries? Is there another sweet, sweet combo i've totally overlooked, please let me know all your secrets! As per, I adore your comments.
Love, Zo-zo xo
