I just thought I'd post about a few things I got for my birthday today, as I'm thrilled with them!
Kicking off the French theme, the first is a piece of 1920s antique jewellery that my friend found for me in an antique market in France. She knows me so well, as I absolutely love it! It's a very long beaded piece, with knots in it and tassels. It's basically a cross between a long necklace and a scarf - I love necklaces and scarves, so it's perfect for me! It's so beautiful! Scroll down for a picture of me wearing it
Secondly I got some Chanel makeup from my boyfriend ooh la la! Naturally, I sent him the website links and even told him that Boots would deliver it to our neighbourhood shop! I asked him for Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow in Murano and Le Vernis Nail Colour in Black Pearl. Here are the pictures and swatches...
I must apologise for my FOTD post - I don't look at my best and my hair decided to go 'rock-chick'!
Here's the makeup I used:
Mac Studio Fix Concealer
Lancome Teinte Miracle Foundation
Bare Escentuals Mineral Veil
Nars Blusher in Deep Throat
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow in Murano - pink all over the lid, the darker silver at the outer corners and the crease, the darkish green in the outer v and the pale blueish green as a highlight.
Lancome Hypnose Mascara
Nars Carthage Matte Lipstick, mostly wiped off with lipbalm applied on top
I picked up the pink swirly top from Next last week for £18. I really love all the prints that are around at the moment! It works well with my antique French scarf/necklace non?
I can't wait to play around more with this palette and the nail polish!
Thanks for reading! xx
