Easy Fresh Spring Makeup

Another YouTube vid, another FOTD post...

A few weeks ago, I got a request to 'do something' with MAC Sumptuous Olive E/S. This is a shadow that can easily become muddied if too much smokeyness is added, so I kept the inner corner light and just blended the Sumptuous Olive out at the crease. Teamed with glowing coral cheeks & lips, this kept the overall look fresh and spring-like.

I know I wasn't pouting when I took this pic, so not sure why it looks like I was !!

    Love it! Looks great! Can we have your top ten Mac eyeshadows or something like that? I'm always looking for new ideas and have similar colouring to you. My favourite Mac eyeshadow is either Goldbit or Retrospeck. I think maybe Retrospeck gets the edge.

  3. That lipstick is lovely and really suits your skin tone :) xxx

  4. This look is beautiful! I loved the video for it as well :) and I was so happy to see someone else talking about how Sumptuous Olive gives natural crease definition! It's SUCH an amazing shade! It was also my first MAC eye shadow so I am a bit partial to it
