AUSSIE SUMMER SUNSET EYES

Matte vs Glossy. Which do you prefer?


Let's be real.. I could happily wear the most basic of makeups EVERY day and be perfectly happy with that... but it's 2020 and I felt like it was time to get back to experimenting with makeup after playing it super safe for the last year.... or few.


These colours are inspired by the most incredible sunsets we see from my parent's house during the Aussie summer.. They're often made up of various shades of orange and pink, and in the winter they tend to go more purple... (Inspiration for my next coloured look, maybe?!)


These shades are also a nice way to pay homage to my teenage bedroom walls. They were neon orange and neon pink. I can't tell whether that's now cute or embarrassing, but they hold a special place in my heart.
