Birthstone: Turquoise

Finally, the last one of the birthstone looks. You didn't think I'd make it before the last of December, did you? :P

I've always thought that the turquoise is the most boring of all of the gemstones - it's not as shiny as the others! But it did trigger a spark of imagination that led to this sci-fiesque look. :)

Youtube tip: 5 ways to wear pigments

If you're hesitant about pigments because you're not quite sure how to use them you should definitely watch this video. :) I realized that I have used the Makeup Geek pigments far too little so I will probably do a look with them soon. They are inexpensive, come in great colors and absolutely awesome!

Shit Happens

Hello dear readers!

I'm sorry for my absence here lately. :( This year I had so many holiday looks planned and so far I've only managed to get one of them done. The reason for this is that my eyes has been bothering me for some time now. About three weeks ago I got a stye on one of my eyes that became really irritated so I had to visit the doctor and get medication for it. Since makeup is that big part of my life I asked him if I had to throw away my old mascaras and if I could use makeup at work while my eye was still irritated and he told me that I could wear makeup as long as I wasn't allergic to it and that I didn't have to throw anything away... I should have known that was a bit too good to be true but, hey, he's a doctor and he ought to know, right? No. Two weeks after the first eye I got problems with the other eye as well, which has finally healed. Today I'm going through my makeup and cleaning it thoroughly with Beauty So Clean and alcohol.

Now I have a week full of work in front of me but I hope I'll have time to post photos of the looks I'm wearing for work at least. Work looks may sound a bit boring but we have different themes every day so I'm sure you'll find something that will interest you. :)

Thanks for reading and see you soon!
