A Fabulous Feline, Belgium and an EOTD

The above cat is my cute cat Jess.
Just back from a weekend break in Brussels with some friends, which was excellent brought back some delicious chocolate, lots of photos and a knee injury (must remember to wear trainers if I ever go back there). Didn't buy any makeup but in less than a fortnight I will have my student loan in and will hopefully have some good stuff to review then.
Took this a little while ago.

EOTD: Autumn

I am one of those people who dislikes summer, it is usually too humid, rainy or sunny (I burn very easily and very badly) so autumn always comes as a relief. Plus the colours tend to suit me better and the light is just gorgeous.

EOTD: Sizzling Green

Had totally forgot about my Ben Nye pallette until last night. I can't believe how bright the greens are and look nice on pale skin but I think would be gorgeous with a tan (which I never do, I burn and freckle).

Birthday EOTD

Too tired to list the products used but will do it later if anyone wants to know. I have no idea why people say my eyeshadow looks like something a drag queen would ware as though it is an insult...

I have taken quite a liking to the Steampunk imagery recently and decided to have a go at a makeup look. This is probably a bit heavier than most would say fits the look but I like it.
