FOTD- Smokey turquoise eye and peach lips

Hi everybody!

So in line with my resolution to make more personal posts, I have another FOTD today. You know the way sometimes you wake up with a colour in your mind, well that happened to me today, i just woke up feeling turquoise, and I wanted to incorporate this into my make up and clothes for the day.

I'm not really a huge fan of blue to be honest, I love navy and black (morbid much!) but I wouldn't really be struck on overdoing the blue eyeshadow. My eyes are kind of grey blue anyways, some days they are blue and some days they are just grey, but I am very pale and I have cool pink undertones so blue is not the most hideous colour I could wear. I just really wanted something bright and summery today, we're still in midst of April showers but in between the rain clouds are precious bouts of sunshine, and sun is good for the soul (but we don't really get alot of it here in Ireland!). 

As I went with a stronger eye today, I chose peachy lips, and the MUA lipstick in Nectar is hydrating and smooth and light on the lips, and even though I wouldn't say staying power is incredible, it fades nicely to leave a tint. I originally dipped into my lipstick drawer to pick out a nude but I found this beauty instead, I can't really rock peach lips in winter so taking full advantage already! I went for a very light cheek colour to avoid having too much colour on my face. Even though I wanted an overall turquoise theme today, I would be very hesitant to apply bright blue-green eyeshadow to my eyelids alone, so I did up a simple smokey eye first using the smoke side of an E.L.F. Eyeliner and Shadow Stick and their eye quad in Drama, after adding a dash of blue, I applied my black eyeliner and mascara to finish off the look.
