Hope you are having a great week so far. This week has been exceptionally slow for me for some reasons but I am glad its FINALLY FRIDAY and its Casual Friday! *YAY* This weekend is gonna be a hardcore cramming session for me though, which is kinda bummer now that Sydney's weather is perfect! Can't wait till my CFA exam is over then it's summer party time babyyyyyy!!! <3 

I have been rather lazy this week and creativity is the last thing in my mind this week. Instead of my baby Naked Palette, I have been using my MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Play on Drum from Claire's Love Package. =P 

Look at how pigmented the colours are! And the best thing about this look is, I only use 2 colours (excluding highlight) and it looks like I have put in heaps of effort when it takes less than 5 minutes! :)

Such a perfect spring/summer colour too! 

On my EYES
ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer 
MAC Coral Crepe Paint Pot
MAC Mineralized Eyeshadow in Play on Drum
NYX Nude Eyeshadow as highlight
Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazelnut
Maybelline Eyestudio Lasting Drama Eyeliner
Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil in Brown 
Loreal Voluminous Curved Brush Mascara in Black

What I did was using the copperish brown colour as all over the lid colour and wing it out a lil using my flat eyeshadow brush. Then I use the peachy coloured eyeshadow with gold specks in it to blend away the harsh edges up to my crease area. 

Also, my eyeshadows seldom crease and I barely use primer before this. But I have been using primer with creme shadow/paint pot lately because I hit the gym after work these days. Creased eye make up is not exactly what I want after a strenuous work out and I cbf remove them. 

My current spring/summer favourite blush :
  Maybelline Mineral Powder Naturally Luminous Blush in True Peach
Look at the pretty glow it gives and I was surprised with the awesome pigmentation considering that this is a mineral powder blush.

On my FACE
Cancer Council Australia Tinted Moisturizer in Light Cream (Review coming soon! :P)
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Silky Beige
Garnier Anti Dark Circles Roll On in light
  Maybelline Mineral Powder Naturally Luminous Blush in True Peach
Illamasqua Powdered Metal in Ether (as highlight)
Milani Sunset Duo in Sunset City (bronzer for contouring)

On my LIPS
MAC Lipstick in Shy Girl

I hate my eyebrows now but there's nothing much I can do about it as I am trying to grow them out so I can get it done professionally!

Perfect easy on-the-go spring look! :)

I have been swapping my BB Cream with tinted moisturizer lately as the weather is getting warmer. For those who don't know, I am one who sweat easily and heaps (GROSS I know). The last thing I want is having a faceful of melting foundation when I am out - NOT.A.GOOD.SIGHT! I am learning to accept my freckles better these days :P

This is how I clip my hair up for work when I don't have them up =P

This is definitely my favourite eyelook atm as it is quick and easy! I did try the smokey-outer V look using the same eyeshadows, which requires a little more work. Stay tune for the next post for it :P

What's your favourite lazy days look?

I have created a Through Beauty Eyes Facebook Page a few days ago when I was procrastinating from studying!

Show some love please <33333

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to those who celebrates it! :)
