Face and Nails of the day 05/03/13

If there is anyone still reading, I know I have been off of the blogging radar for a LONG time and I can only apologise for that. I have no real excuses to offer but you could say I lost my blogging mojo. Whilst at university last year I found myself more motivated to make videos for my Youtube channel, and any extra writing was starting to feel like a chore for me.
Skip to now... It's been a few months, I finished my degree and I have no excuses anymore.  I'm trying to get my life sorted out (call it a late new years resolution) and a large part of that is self-motivation. I am hoping that if I throw myself back into a hobby that I used to really enjoy, then the rest will follow.
I'm not making any promises of regular posts every day and I can't say that I won't drop off the radar again, but I am going to try.

So here I am, easing myself back in with a good old Face of the day. All products listed at the end.

Before I show you my mug here's whats on my nails:
I painted my nails with my Red Carpet gel manicure kit, using the colour 'Ooo La liscious'. The colour looks a bit more red on the camera but in real life it is a gorgeous coral and I can't wait to wear this shade in the summer.

 I am fixated on trying to bring out any hint of green eyes lately (I should just give in and admit that my eyes are actually more brown than green) so today I went for a bronze cream base and warm brown eyeshadow to try and bring out that 'green'. 

 Once I had created the brown eye look I added a touch of Mac 'Woodwinked' eyeshadow to the centre of the lids to add a bit more dimension.

And this picture with flash is just to show the glow that the cream cheek products add.
