Beat the Blues :)

Happy birthday!!!!!!!!
And, if it's not you're birthday:
A very merry un-birthday to you!
(There was a girl on the bus this morning that was wearing one of those big badges which said: "It's My Birthday!" and I said Happy Birthday to her!)

Got your Metro and morning Starbucks? Got mine! A White Caffe Mocha, no less :)

So first thing's first, here is a FOTD!

Mind the weird expression XD

What I'm wearing on le face:
~ The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion SPF15
~ Michael Todd Cosmetics Tinted Gel Primer
~ Skinfood Aloe Sunscreen BB Cream #1 (I think!) Radiant Skin SPF 20 PA+ (UV Protection)|5|36&productid=1606
~ Benefit Hoola Bronzing Powder{SXUK}-_-{Products}-_-{benefit+bronzer}&SR=sr2bu259go10451sx956pi27ai137
~ Benefit Coralista Blush

~ MAC Prep+Prime Transparent Finishing Powder

For the lips:
~ Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in 415 Pink in the Afternoon

Dodgy, shaky, no flash photo...

Shiney, clear, with flash photo!

And for my eyes:
~ Barry M Dazzle Dust in 22 Electric Blue
~ The Body Shop Eyeshadow Trio - this is now discontinued, but I used colours that are very similar to MAC Soft Force and Tempting :)
~ Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara
~ Max Factor Lash Extension Effect Mascara

So the lighting is a bit yellow without flash, but I hope you get the idea :)

I'm a little disappointed with my eyes lately, as I wore a similar blue look yesterday but I found that by the end of the day, there was only a hint of blue left! This is highly unusual for me, as even without a primer, my eyeshadow usually lasts all day! Hmm... it may be the chilling winds, or just this dazzle dust? Who knows. I will try with a primer or a base tomorrow and hope that it stays put!


Okay, maybe not quite. But similar? I know giraffes are yellow and brown but I wanted to play with my black crackling polish from Barry M!

Here's what I used:
~ O.P.I. Nail Envy Original (2 coats)
~ Topshop Nails in Bee's Knees (2 coats)
~ Barry M Nail Effects Nail Paint (1 coat)
~ 17 Double Gloss Top Coat (1 coat)
~ O.P.I. Drip Dry Drops (2-3 drops per nail)

Hate having short nails, but at least they don't look terrible, right??

Bit miffed and it probably was my own fault for not waiting till my nails were completely super dry, but you can see where the crackling black polish has sucked the yellow away from my nail! See the thinned out sheer areas? Yeah, not going to let that mistake happen again.

Also, there is a reason why I haven't shown my right hand... HUGE chip in the middle of my thumb nail XD

Happy 1st of December!
What did you get in your Advent Calender this morning?
I don't have one :( I shall live vicariously through you!
Or maybe buy one later :P

Love love and bluegiraffelove!!
