2 Different FOTD's Inspired by 2 Lovely Bloggers

Here's a look I did on Christmas eve. My family and I don't celebrate Christmas, but we took the opportunity to go out for dinner. I did this look after seeing a FOTD that Janella from Bold & Beautiful posted using MAC's Expensive Pink eyeshadow. I've recently discovered her blog and she posts a lot of beautiful looks. I have a few colour combinations that she's posted FOTD's on that I can't wait to try out. Expensive Pink eyeshadow is one of my favourite eyeshadows, and I loved the look she created so I decided to recreate it. Here's my take on it:

MAC Perky paintpot
MAC Expensive Pink e/s (on the lid)
MAC Satin Taupe e/s (outer corner and crease)
MAC Sketch e/s (outer V)

MAC Studio Fix powder foundation in NC40
MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW30 (as undereye concealer)
MAC On A Mission blush
MAC Harmony (to contour)
Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray

MAC Hug Me l/s

Sorry I didn't get any close ups of this look. But it's pretty simple and the placement is the exact same as most of my other looks.

Andddd, here's a look I did today. I've seen this photo on someones tumblr:

This photo is from a FOTD that Ronnie at Bows & Curtseys posted here (she also has a video tutorial here!). If you aren't fimilar with Ronnie's blog, I HIGHLY suggest you check it out. Her looks are stunning and I get a tonne of inspiration by just flipping through her blog.

I loved the rainbow liner. Bethany/iwanted2c1video on YouTube did a tutorial based on this here aswell. I decided to do my own take on it. I was actually heading to work today, so I didn't decided to narrow it down and use one of my favourite colour combinations - green, blue and purple. Here is my take:

MAC Untitled paint
Wet n' Wild Color Icon e/s in Brulee (all over)
MAC Cork e/s (in crease)
MAC Soft Brown e/s (in crease)
MAC Femme Fi e/s (right under brow arch)
MAC Vanilla pigment (on tearduct and lower lashline)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
Urban Decay Graffiti, Peace and Ransom e/s (as the coloured liner)

I didn't get any good close-ups once again, sorry! I was in a rush to get to work, and I think I need to play around more with my camera to see what settings/lightings work best for clear photos.

I got a few compliments on this look, and I really liked it!

I've been trying lately to get out of my comfort zone and try out new eyeshadow combinations and techniques, but it's a lot harder than it seems. If you guys have any favourite bloggers or gurus that you get a lot of inspiration from, please share! I'm always looking for photos or looks that other people to do try to recreate and get my out of my rut!
