FOTD: Warm Eyes and Nude lips

It may be a boring Sunday In for me but I said what the heck and decided to create a random FOTD and post it, as it's been far too long since I've shared my face (that could be a good or a bad thing). I decided on warm eyes, and came up with a nude lip combo that actually suits my fair skin, hooray!


  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • Maybelline Colour tattoo in 'Fierce and Tangy' all over the lid
  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette
  • Jelly Pong Pong liner/shadow stick in water line
  • Revlon Colour Stay liner in tight line (Thanks Kats!)
  • Elf Liquid Liner
  • Rimmel Wonderful Mascara - I couldn't for the life of me find this when I was photographing the products haha who knows where it is
  • Unbranded Lashes


  • Mac Fix Plus
  • Jane Iredale Pressed Mineral Foundation
  • LA Girl Pro conceal
  • Anastasia Brow Pomade in Taupe
  • Face Of Australia Contour Kit
  • Mac MSF in Soft and Gentle
  • Ulta Three lipstick in Sandal Wood on the outside of the lips
  • Mac Myth lipstick on the centre of the lips

I feel a bit silly with lashes and all on now when I'm just hanging out at home, but hey there's no harm in looking fabulous while I read my book. Hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for reading!

  1. I can see the warmth of that Fierce & Tangy coming through, it's brilliant, isn't it? I love the look of that Chocolate Bar palette. The ombré lip is so subtle I overlooked it at first. A great, balanced glam look. You'll have to suck up the courage to go out like that. The lashes look mad!

    1. Thanks so much for telling me about how good fierce and tangy looks with browns, I love it! Ive fallen in love with these dramatic lashes so I'm sure Ill be rocking them every chance I get, thanks so much! :)

  2. Looks really nice! Gorgeous but not too made up, perfect for a date night!

  3. Looks gorgeous Monique! I too think it's a great date night look.

    I really wish I could do the nude lip thing, but (a) I'm fair as well (cool-toned though - I think the warmer-toned fair lasses can get away with it a bit more tbh) & (b) my lips are highly pigmented, so I'm not sure how it would work on me. Would love to find out one day.

    1. Thanks so much Seashells!! I know what you mean, finding nudes that suit me has always been such a struggle as I'm pale. I found that using a mauve/brown lipliner around the lips with a little bit of nude in the centre really works, and you can adjust the colour to suit your skin tone. Definitely give it a go! :)

  4. How wonderful to see your gorgeous face, Monique. I love the added depth that Fierce and Tangy gives to your eye look. You look perfect!

    1. Too kind as always, thank you so much lovely :) xx
