Okinawa I Love You

Okinawa has a special place in my heart.

Hiro proposed to me on an Okinawan Island.

We honeymooned on another Okinawan Island.

My dear Sakuras & Sunshine sent me the NARS Okinawa trio.


Isn't it handsome?

I have to admit that I am still garnering the courage and skill to be able to do justice to a decent smokey eye. However, I had to mess with the silver gray and cobalt blue just to dip my toes....oooh umm...lids!


My 1st attempt with this palette is not so great. I went commando and didn't bother with my usual UDPP base. On a more positive note, this would work well for the office.

Not the neatest EOTD that I have ever done but I happen to like that "didn't try too much" effortless, slightly messy look. SO THERE!! ahaha

I will try a more punchy look soon and naturally...I shall report back to you.

Thanks for reading!

  2. So damn gorgeous.
    But I'm even more enamoured with the colour of your iris, pure amber. Beautiful!

  3. It looks really wearable for the daytime which is something I struggle with when I use more daring shades.

    Try a coloured base underneath it, I find a black pencil really helps bring out the smokeyness.

  5. I'm not the neatest bird when it comes to everyday eye makeup..I like it a little messy. I think you did a good job. =)

  7. I love this look! I never would have imagined looking at the quad that it would do a daytime look so nicely - can't wait to see how you do the more dramatic look. And I am SO relieved it made it there in one piece (you could probably tell by the sheer amount of bubble wrap I used that I was nervous about anything breaking).

    Those are falsies?? The application is fantastic - they look like your real lashes.

    Much love! <3
