Baby pink and blue...

Whilst re-arranging storage and rummaging through stacks of my Sleek Eye-shadow palettes, I decided I had to get more use out of them and after choosing the safest of them all randomly picked up the Bad Girl palette which I've always had a soft corner for.

Now you won't see me pulling off an editorial eye as such on a daily basis(or EVER!) but in a world where my alter-ego would prevail, this would be my choice without doubt.

I opted for rich blues, indigo and purples and teamed them with soft hues of shimmery pinks to balance out the intensity. I am not a fan of silver used in the traditional smoky eye to be honest.

Forgive the very obvious sketched in brows. I was trying to make them seem intense and hide hair growth. *fails miserably*

Don't you just love that shot of purple on the lower lash line? I thought the indigo was overpowering the look a bit too much hence added the purple to make it slightly more colourful.

Like it? Tell me there is at least one brave soul amongst you who would actually wear this in day light?

I don't think it's overly editorial, in that it is still a very wearable look... looks great on you! x
