Soft camel brown with gunmetal, that is.
Yes, it was a dumb title for this FOTD post, but when you’ve done a gazillion posts titled ‘soft brown smoky eye’ or similar, you tend to enjoy making up silly names. Anyway. I have been using my Tom Ford eyeshadow quad in Cocoa Mirage virtually every day since purchasing it at Sydney DJs at the end of last year- the day I shot this FOTD was no exception. I took a few photos in my hotel room before leaving for work in the morning (in Perth, #suitcasediaries) because I liked how the NARS Dogon looked with the soft warm toned browns of Cocoa Mirage.
I also quite like the way that the darker shade of NARS Dogon blends better when applied over the silky texture of the Cocoa Mirage shadows- much better than it normally does on primer alone (it tends to apply a little patchy, which is unfortunate because of how beautiful the shade is)

Valentine’s Day is soon! Do you celebrate it? Phil and I don’t really get too excited about Feb 14 in general, but there is something romantic (and profitable, of course) about having a day of the year where everyone is on a date.
One thing about Valentine’s Day that I do notice each year is that I get a traffic spike because of the name of my blog- quite a number of people stumbling across it probably looking for gifts or date planning inspiration and finding themselves looking at makeup hahah. Well the least I could do is at least provide some sort of FOTD related to Valentine’s Day, which I seem to neglect doing most years.
Here it is!
(btw, ‘My Funny Valentine’ as a name has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day whatsoever.)

I still can’t seem to get Dolce and Gabbana S/S 2013 out of my head. I adore Pat McGrath’s Sicilian summer inspired makeup, and often wear some variation of that glowy cats eye. This is one that I wore to work- a very neutral monochromatic look that I’m fond of when I want to look polished, but don’t want to think too hard.
- Matte white shade from the Tom Ford Cocoa Mirage Quad on the mobile lid
- Matte light brown shade in crease and underneath bottom lashline
- Matte dark brown shade in the outer V
- Maybelline Color Tattoo Barely Branded in the inner corner
- Daniel Sander Brown Velvet Eyeliner on upper lashline and smudged into outer 1/3rd of bottom lashline.
- Daniel Sandler Watercolour blush in Gentle (don’t do it. Dry as hell)

I have loved every single Burberry Lip Velvet that I’ve ever owned, and my newest acquisition- Pink Azalea- is no exception. I love the romantic, period film quality to this shade in the matte finish.
MAC Club eyeshadow is an unlikely pairing with Pink Azalea for a day time work face, but I think it works well. Hope you like it!

Purple is the colour du jour, with Pantone naming Radiant Orchid as the colour of the year 2014. I own surprisingly few purple toned makeup products, so I will need to ‘update’ my collection for this year.
Before this I hadn’t tried purple with a taupe/green duochrome before, and I’m rather pleased with how well Fig 1 goes well NARS Dogon. Definitely one to revisit.
