Lilac Lilac Lilac

I feel like lilac has been following me everywhere recently, from that anorak in Topshop to my new t-shirt from Zara (pictured). Not to forget this lilac lace top from Urban Outfitters I bought in London and now NYX's Vivid Brights Liner in Vivid Blossom which reeled me in just the other day for what now seems to be a beautiful lilac love affair.

One of my first ventures into makeup was a shimmery purple eyeshadow from a palette which I believe came free in a magazine. Just purple all over my lid. And nothing else. So glam. Now I am reliving my purple childhood eyeshadow obsession with a bit more sophistication thanks to NYX's Vivid Brights Vivid Blossom lilac eyeliner. The fresh pop of colour instantly makes me feel just that little bit extra and really boosts my confidence, it's such a fun colour to experiment with for makeup and fashion. Lilac outfit post coming very soon. And for my shimmer for this look, I used KIKO Milano's Cream Crush eyeshadow in shade 12 - Pearly Lilac, which is a beautiful almost holographic lilac in the pot and sheerer on the skin.

Lilac is a colour I haven't tried or given much thought to before (minus shimmery purple eyeshadow) but I'm definitely a big fan now. It is so fresh for summer and also goes great with rose gold/copper pink shades so is perfect for me. Just saying.
