If at first you dont succeed!

As the saying goes if at first you don't succeed try and try again! I often use this motto when applying makeup.
Take this morning for instance i tried a purple and white eyeshadow look with deep pink lips but it just didn't suit me so i ended up applying a grey colour on top and then a bit of black in the corners of my eyes. Then i put a really pale lippy over the bright one to tone it down a bit and when I'd finished i really liked the end result.




Prestige petulant rose looked too deep so i added Barry m 101 over the top


Hair left messy with a good spray of hairspray 

I thought it was quite funny that my eyeshadow seemed to go particularly well with my latest nail polish from Leighton Denny Leading Lilac. Which i really love.
Thanks so much to the lovely Jan from Beauty Diarist as she kindly sent me it :)


So my question is if it all goes wrong do you try and try again till you end up with a result that you like?

  15. Aww thanks so much ladies

    Liloo I didnt write down the eyeshadows as there are about 4 different ones just blended on top of each other. Technical i know ha

    I've just been looking at the photos and laughing to myself as im wearing my fluffy dressing gown too much lately in my FOTD. I must make an effort to get dressed next time before i get the camera out,

    Also meant to say the polish is on its 3rd day and still looking fab. Big thumbs up for Leighton Denny polishes.

    As always thanks for all your comments girlies xx
