Neutral Daytime with Patina & Satin Taupe

Eyeshadow colours inspired by another Samantha Chapman tutorial on pixiewoo (this time Megan Fox). I didn't follow the base, liner or lower lashline details, just took inspiration for the Patina / Satin Taupe Combination, which I then added to. A great, polished daytime look. Every single time I used the Estée Lauder Double Wear, I'm amazed all over again with the finish, coverage and flawless longevity of it throughout the day. I often play with different foundation, but this really does take the cake for me.

fun with inglot gel liners

The colours are so intense and have not found an eyeliner that holds up better on the waterline. It does start to degrade over time, but it's the closest to staying put compared with any other!


This was so fun- there's light blue on the inner corner, green on the waterline and the teal on the outer lower lash line.

Birthday Look

I wore this look today for my birthday. Something a little special using colours I usually don't reach for in a workday- was itching to finish this one with falsies but drew the lone for work! I was really pleased with this one going outside my comfort zone and cannot wait to get my brushes into more shades from Too Faced's Smokey Eye Palette.

Tarte-y FOTD & EOTD

Used a bunch of Tarte products for the first time today from my humongous US haul my sister sent me a month back. Did the more dramatic of the 2 suggested looks on the instructions for the NeutralEYES palette and liked it a lot with the heavier liner. Also first time using the Loreal lipstick in Unending Kiss- a lovely bubblegum pink toned down a little with the Turkish Delight. Still not sure what I think of the Revlon Foundation (definitely a fewer finish especially for an oil control makeup) or MAC's Brow Set (always make a mess all over my brow bone with that tinted gel, and then it's a challenge to clean it up.)

Whatever your day holds today hope you find some peace, joy & beauty. Jodi xo

MAC Festive Frost Face Kit FOTD & EOTD

Neutral look today with a pop of green on waterline - my first time using MAC's Festive Frost Face Kit (exclusive to Nordstrom in US / Myer in Australia). Really love the eyeshadows in this palette and the Buff blush is right up my alley. A lovely neutral pink that makes a difference with a natural tone. I also cannot say enough about how creamy these beautiful Luxury Liners are from Savvy. So cheap and an absolute joy to use, even on waterline.

Couldn't find my Tra-La-La this morning (have since found it in my makeup bag- phew!) so grabbed a similar Tarina Tarantino gloss. Next time I'll try this eye with a different base (used Inglot's white gel liner for this), to change up that Expensive Pink- it's such a divine colour- I really want to make that pop.

MAC Holiday Items with 2 Different Lip Combos

Used some of my new MAC Holiday Collection items that I purchased at the MAC event last week. Surprises the effect doesn't come out warmer looking considering the eyeshadow palette is the warm one!

Have I mentioned how much I'm really enjoying the Jemma Kidd Concealer duo (concealer stick with liquid Highlighter on other end)? Have had it for a year and am always changing up my Concealer bit have been LOVING this this week. Couldn't decide if I liked the Imagine This lipstick as it's pretty orangey beige, as I thought a pink would really pop with it, so showing you both combos.

What do you think?

Hope you enjoy, and have a beautiful day! Jodi xo

Everyday Smoky Eye- missmai inspired



This one's inspired by missmai27 on Yutes again- she recently posted an everyday smoky- looked beautiful on her. See it here: http://youtu.be/vhhVSRF4hRo. Switched out Print for Concrete- thought I had it but it seems I don't...nonetheless, came out really well. Very pleased with it and will definitely wear this one again. Loving the Dr Brandt Pore Refiner and the Chanel Perfection Lumiere. Beautiful finish, coverage and staying power.

Hope you enjoy, and have a beautiful day! Jodi xo

Neutral Shimmer Daytime EOTD

Finally had a chance to use my brand spanking new amazing Chanel Topkapi eyeshadow quad. Msgoddessintraining on Yutes told me they still had a handful available at the Chanel Makeup Studio in Myer in Sydney after I was told at my counter that they never even sent any out to Perth since they were so limited edition. Lucky it's so beautiful out here, as it's the ass end of the world in so many other respects!


Love the Le Ligne liner from Chanel too- last all day with the Duraline (think it's pretty good just with water too).

purple & peach glow

Wanted to do a purple lid with an orangey-peach to blend it out to provide a soft contrast. Love that combo whenever I see it in pictures. MAC's Coppering & Arena provided the perfect combination -I love the effect. Thing I'm going to try those two in the same spot soon but with a light lid... We'll see.

Hope you have a beautiful day, Jodi xo
