All nighter makeup...CHEAP AS CHIPS

This is what happens when I don't sleep all night. I end up playing with my makeup at 8am in an attempt to stay awake. It's not going to work, I can pretty much guarantee i'll be dribbling into a pillow in approx 43 mins time.

Anyway, I wanted to do something bright but the only eyeshadows I have that scream 'tropicana' is the cheap beauty UK palette. The colours are quite good for the price, you get a little fall out but it's nothing unexpected tbh. I really wanted to do a cliche yellow/pink look but the yellow is so unbelievably shit it doesn't show up. I went with this instead...

Here's what I used;

Pink, orange and bright green from beauty UK palette
Sleek pixi pink blush (inner corner)
Barry M liquid eyeliner
Primark falsies (£1.50!!)
NYC tribeca toast duo (dark brown fer me brows)
White from a collection 2000 teeny palette thingamawotsit
Can't remember what mascara I used, I think it was a 17 one. as chips. The only 'expensive' item is the UDPP.

I have one eye that's squintier than the can notice it in the top pic, looks like I have a lazy eye lol Bah...cannot be helped.
ok, so...I didn't use much mascara, you can see my real lashes poking out from beneath the falsies but I couldn't be arsed. Also my brushes needed to be cleaned so I used my fingers for application, but I did use a brush for the crease and to blend out the edges a little.
Sorry about the poor presentation girlies but i'm so effin sleepy...*yawnyawn* lol I still haven't gotten around to doing something with the RMK yet but that will soon come :]

Wow! Love these pics, your makeup is amazing!!
About your "squinty" eye, it's totally un-noticeable. I have a very squinty eye due to ptosis caused by Myasthenia Gravis. It used to bother me sooo much and I would try to compensate with makeup but it ended up looking worse. Now I've come to accept it, embrace it as part of my "look". It still makes me cringe in some pictures, but what's a girl to do?
Anyways, love your blog. Please check mine out and take a look at my handmade sterling silver charm bracelets at
Keep up the good work, and get some sleep!!
