Chanel & Yves Saint Laurent 'Eye of the (Wedding) Night'!

Just a quick post as I'm still struggling with my computer - card reader this time, which means that until I receive the replacement, I'm having to manage with what I've got.

On Saturday night I went to a wedding reception in South Wales and because of the journey, I mostly applied my make-up in the car because I didn't want to apply it in the morning, and I also didn't want to have to arrive and apply - so the car was (surprisingly) my best option!

Anyway, I went for Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Épatant on the lids and inner corners; and the turquoise-y green from the Yves Saint Laurent Midnight Garden 5 Ombres Lumiéres (swatches coming very soon, just got to put together the last few photographs) in the crease and outer corners!

I'm still not as neat as I'd like to be with my eyeshadow - I don't think it helps that my eyes are a bit different and I don't know how to work with t hat, but I was happy with how it looked in the end. If any of you with better skills than me have any tips, feel free to throw them my way!

The eyeliner I used was my trusty Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner in black and I used Bourjois Volume Fast & Perfect Mascara on my lashes!

Sorry for the quality of the pictures, I didn't take my proper camera out with me. Also, I've only shown my eyes as for some reason, on both of the photographs I appeared to be pulling a weird face that was not flattering at all haha! I wouldn't mind, I wasn't even drunk so there are no excuses! :-) 


  1. It's hard to put make up in a car. But I think you did fine. I like your choice of color it complements your eye color.

  2. gorgeous! i'm impressed, i'm awful at doing my make-up in the car! x

  3. God, I couldn't do my eye make up this well at a steady mirror let alone in a car! Gorgeous!x

  4. I think you did a very good job, especially in a car! x x
