looking peachy keen


A look at my makeup stash will probably cause you a mild heart attack and/or aneurysm. Other beauty bloggers can probably relate. To say I am ashamed of myself is not stretching any truths.
The situation is even worse than you imagine because despite the myriad colours available to me for every makeup item, I am a creature of habit and revert to my trusty matte nudes and black eyeliner. Utterly boring, I know. I have slapped my wrists on your behalf.

Sometimes, the stars align and I take sudden fancy to playing with colours outside my comfort/lazy zone. That’s what gave rise to this springtime look. A little bit of peach, a little green and a touch of purple.
Like it?

    1. Thank you Madhu.
      Aren’t we both just a little safe?
      I’ve made a little promise to myself to refrain from using trusty favourites so trying new looks is (slowly) becoming easier.
      I take comfort in the fact that at least it all washes off – you know, should complete disaster eventuate 😉
