So after Anna and I had had a peruse of all that was on offer downstairs the lovely SA asked if we wanted to see the sales section upstairs? Illamasqua make up at discount prices, nah we'll leave it thanks love. Not.
Ooh the pretty. Instantly purchased Em some amazing blue false eye lashes (must take pic) for £5. Then decided I needed a £7.50 eye shadow. I was really taken with an amazing bright blue (googles Illamasqua site - it was Victim and its still on sale on their site and I waaaaaant it now) but chickened out and opted for a safer bright purple, Fatal. I had reservations about wearing colour and asked the SA what she thought, God she was brilliant! Her advice is to do my usual neutral eye and then add a pop of the colour just on the corner of the mobile eye, so that initially you don't look as if you are really wearing colour, until you blink and then "pow" there it is!

I used Virgin from my beloved UD Naked all over my lid just to give an even base and to help with blending. Then put Naked into the crease and finally Fatal onto the mobile lid, up to but not into crease. I used Fatal with my flat eye liner brush to push it into the top lash line and then on a small round brush to smudge into lower lashes.
