FOTD : Winter Wonderland

Is it me or did 2010 just flew by SO quickly? It feels like 2010 has just started and now it's already June! That also marks the start of Winter in the Southern Hemisphere. You see, I have a love-hate-relationship with winter. I absolutely adore winter fashion (think gorgeous coats, scarves, boots, gloves) but the cold and the wind that pierce through your skin, not so fun. Sydney, however had a pretty great start to the winter, with its abundance of sunshine after 2 consecutive cold and wet weeks.:) Such a shame I was stuck at work all day though.:(

In order to embrace the grand arrival of winter, I decided to go for a "Winter Wonderland" look, something out of my comfort zone. Silver and dark grey aren't really the best colours for me IMO but I decided to give it a try anyways. There's no harm trying something new, is it? =P I was quite satisfied with the outcome, except the fact that it looks a lil too over the top for work. It is definitely more suitable for a night out.

I used all the colours from LOREAL ColorAppeal Eyeshadow Quad in Star Secrets and a dark grey colour from my 88 Warm Colour Palette for the outer crease area to create more dimension to the look.

I think I went a lil extreme with the winged eye as you can see the outer quarter of the line has no lashes =.=. And, I am just too lazy to put on falsies, especially for work. *Let's pretend I did LOL*
