How's going? Thank god its Friday tomorrow!!! And the good news is, winter is officially over and HELLO SPRING TIME! (Albeit the weather here in Sydney isn't that great today!) I apologise for my sporadic updates here on Through Beauty Eyes... my CA finals is coming up in 3 weeks (eeeek!) and I am pretty occupied with events and birthdays in the next couple of weeks too! Apologies in advance if I go on an unannounced hiatus again!
So, I signed up for Illamasqua Master Class a while ago when I was
wandering aimlessly window shopping at MYER City and decided to drop by Illamasqua counter to say hello. Fast forward 2 months later, I got a call from Illamasqua on Friday, confirming my attendance to Saturday's 12pm session. Imagine getting home at 4am from an unplanned massive Friday night out, a 12pm session was painfully early on a Saturday for yours truly. However, because I am awesome like that, I sucked it up and made it to the session. Fashionably late, may I add. I blame it on CityRail's track work!
Unless you have been living under the rock all this time, colour-blocking shouldn't be something new to you... And last time I checked, no one has said colour-blocking can only be used when it comes to fashion.
Nicola demonstrating colour - blocking your eyes and lip make up. =)
Bright orange and lime green eyeshadows, no contouring on the crease/ outer V area and finish off with a bright pink lips!
This is my take on the colour-blocking FOTD!
I must admit, it did take me a while to get use to it as I am not one who usually go out with both bright eyes and lips, its always one or another!
However, definitely LOVIN' the final result though! :)

Nicola: Colour - blocking works well with both pastel-coloured outfit and bold-coloured outfit.
The Illamasqua Master Class costs $70, redeemable on products! And here are the products I redeemed:
Illamasqua Powder Blush in Hussy

(I have a strong feeling that this is going to replace my love for BB Cream! Stay tune for a review in a month's time!)
Make Up Colour Blocking - Yay or Nay?
I have a few combinations in my head that I can't wait to try out when we are approaching summer! :)
