♥ EOTD Using MUA & Victoria Jacksson

EOTD Using MUA & Victoria Jacksson

I wore this EOTD yesterday when I went cinema with my boyfriend, to watch Skyfall.  It was a really simple and quick look to do. 

The green/brown shadow is the first ever MUA eyeshadow I bought. It's such a cool shade- at first glance it looks dark grey. But when it's swatched it's actually a green/silver shade surrounded by a black matte shade. It's like a two-in-one. Love it! I don't know why I haven't used it more recently since it gives such a nice, and effortless effect. I would say it has a built in transition eyeshadow.

I know this pictures are absolute rubbish, un focused, un even. taken in the evening. So sorry about that, but I was rushing :)

What do you think of this look?



  1. This is really pretty! Love it!!! We don't have mua in the states. If we did I'd definitely try it out!!!

  2. I LOVE this look...very pretty!

  3. Hi Girl,
    Just replying to your comment on my post, I have done so on my blog also but just incase you don't see it.

    I haven't had an issue with heaviness or smelling with the castor oil. It's JBCO mixed with a smaller amount of EVOO I did this to cut the oil so it's easier to spread as you know JBCO or castor oil is general is very heavy.

    I use a oil bottle i got from sally's with a thin nozzle and it only releases small amounts and then I just massage the scalp.

    I think if castor oil is used a couple times a week it can definitely weigh down your hair and make it appear greasy.

    I have been doing this for 2 years now, I started off by doing the 'Hairlista castor oil challenge' but I always slacked but I did noticed thickness. I just made it a staple step in my regimen instead of a 3 month challenge and it's thickened my hair, corrected my hairline which was thin due to genes and my scalp used to flake which doesn't happen anymore.

    I would recommend you tried it on a clean scalp for 3months and see if you notice a difference in thickness. I believe on a clean scalp it penetrates better to the hair shaft.

    (long answer, hope it helps )
