Dreams of Mint with Concrete Minerals

Hi everyone,

A short makeup post today :).

So I figured, before I formally introduce you to my Concrete Minerals loose eyeshadows, I will show you some makeup looks with them.

Yesterday, you saw White Rabbit and Daydream: the white-pinkish and baby blue eyeshadows…And today is the day of the greens. Please meet: Detox and Swamped (cute names, ha?!)



Detox is the mint green on the lid. It has really pretty silver sparkles too. Swamped is a dark green with a yellow undertone. I used it in the outer V, and also wet on he lower lash line (mixed with Duraline).

Both are very pretty, don’t you think?

Anyway, what I used:

  • Essence I love stage e/s base
  • NYX JEP Milk
  • Concrete Minerals loose eyeshadow Detox
  • Concrete Minerals loose eyeshadow Swamped
  • Urban Decay Deluxe e/s box (Honey and Graffiti)
  • MUG e/s Beaches and Cream
  • Essence colour art pigment Be My Brightsmaid
  • Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner pen
  • Max Factor Wild Mega Volume volumising mascara

Have a nice evening everyone! 🙂

Oriflame Fat Lash Funky mascaras: blue and green

I am sure that upon opening your makeup bag, each of you can pull out an item that they always overlook/ignore/forget. Not because it isn’t cool…but because there never seems to be a good occasion to wear it!

For me, those happen to be two mascaras I got a long time ago from my aunt: the Oriflame Fat Lash Funky mascaras in blue and green. I love both of them, the colours are gorgeous…but who has the time to think of looks that accommodate funky colourful mascaras in the morning before work?!?!?? The upside of being unemployed at the moment: I have all the time in the world!!!! Well, not all the time really…sometimes I am also useful 😛

So, to compensate for the dreadful negligence these two mascaras have had to endure, I came up with a simple look that combines both of them =>



I hope that makes up (“makes up”…get it LOL!) for my shameful behaviour!
