FOTD: Mad For Pink

I've done this very same look (with different products) the first time about five, six years ago when I was in Sydney, Australia. I had bought an eyeshadow palette that had a pink shade and a sparkly lime shade. I wanted to use it by applying the pink on my upper lid and the lime on my lower lid. I thought I was being different. One day my Japanese room mate came to me with a women's magazine that had a Shu Uemura ad on it. The woman in the ad was wearing the exact same look. Back then I was a little more sensitive and was offended by my room mate's guess that I had copied the look, and refused to do it again (yeah, I'm a really delightful person LOL).

I still love combining pink with lime green so in order to call for spring, I did the look with Fyrinnae products. I used Chaotic Evil (pink with sparkle) and We're All Mad Here (sparkly lime/dark chartreuse).

'Scuse the flakey skin. Not being able to go for a walk is wreaking havoc on my face.

I love both of these colours. I hadn't used Chaotic Evil before (I think..) and it's just a strong, shocking pink. That's why I skipped highlighter, I wanted the focus to be on the pink goodness. I love the sparkles which become more visible with Pixie Epoxy.

Here you can see the sparkle.  Look at it, it's uh-mazing!

I wanted to go full on bright with my look. So I applied Charm blush very generously and smothered my lips with Visual Kei. However, I skipped the highlighter on my face because I didn't want to go THAT mad. Even though there's a lot of pink going on, I think it's not OTT at all.

I wish I had a better full face pic but the thing is that when I was doing this look, I lost my balance because I got a spasm of some kind on my operated knee and I almost fell on the floor. I managed to grab the bathroom counter and to tighten the mucles on my thigh but after that I spent about 45 minutes shaking. So I didn't get to do my hair the way I wanted and I look scared as hell in this photo. Just when I wanted to do something special to you! Also, I'm wearing my pj's.

Well, I'm off to put some ice on my knee. I hoped you still liked this look.

Any weekend plans?
