Antipodean Beauties – All About Eyes

Antipodean Beauties
I’m having so much fun with these challenges! This week’s theme is All About Eyes. I love playing with eye make-up; I am definitely a lot more adventurous with colour on my eyes than on my lips.

For this week’s challenge I thought I’d go back to an old eyeshadow favourite which I actually received free with a magazine purchase yonks ago – my Mirenesse Pearl Crush Creaseless Shadow in ‘Bora Pearls’.

I hadn’t heard of Mirenesse before receiving this product so did not really know what to expect (you know what it’s like with magazine freebies sometimes!) but was pleasantly surprised as these shadows are really creamy and pigmented. I signed up with Mirenesse to receive their monthly Glamm Box as well as their bi-monthly VIP Box when I was going through my subscription box phase but after a few months I was inundated with more Mirenesse make-up than I could swing a cat at, so I cancelled my subscriptions (and no cats were harmed in the process – bahahaha, sorry it’s been a long week!). They are great if you love Mirenesse products!

    • Thanks so much Ty! I’m still learning how to blend properly – have used the Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush for this 🙂 I think that’s why Mirenesse always do free make-up promotions and offer free gifts with magazines as they aren’t stocked in stores (I have seen them promoted on TVSN though).. I’m still working through all their stuff that I received in their subscription box 🙂
