FOTD Lazy eyes and purple lips

OK, two things - Firstly, "Hello!" to my new followers! I'm so happy to have you on board and it means so much to me that you read my posts and comment. I'm sorry I'm not always quick at responding to comments, but I do get round to it eventually. I plan on having a give-away when I reach 100 GFC followers, so keep your eyes peeled!

Secondly, I understand that during these terrible times in London and across the country, it seems trivial to post about make-up. I sincerely hope that those of you in London are safe and that you and your friends/family are out of harm’s way. However, in the interests of trying to maintain a bit of normality, here is my FOTD from last Friday night when we went to a friend's place to watch DVD's.

I call this "lazy eyes" because when I can't be bothered to think about how to do my eye shadow, I just reach for my Naked palette. I used just two colours but I really like the result. I really do recommend this palette, even if you normally wear bright colours like I do. It's great to have in your collection for times when bright make-up isn't appropriate, or you just can't be bothered! You can still create some quite dramatic looks with it, though.
