This I call the “Bruised-eye”, inspired by late nights and unfortunate accelerated growth of dark eye-bags. I used to believe blues and greys would make a pale girl look like she’s a foot from her grave, but it’s all in matching the right lipstick shade. In my honest opinion, I haven’t gone quite bruise-eyed enough. I could have gone deeper if this hadn’t been a casual gym day.

I’ve had this Too Faced palette for 2 years now, and the shades never go out of season. The browns are great for a nude, warm day look; the purples work perfectly when I feel a tad bolder; and the blue/greys are my go-to cool-tones. Though it’s bulky to carry around, I used to travel with these because without them I feel unarmed. My favourite shades? The shimmery gold, and glittery midnight black.
So I had a great run. A day of good endorphins demands a snap.
I’d better go to bed to salvage this bruised eye situation.
