The lovely Sara-May has been doing a FOTD Challenge on her beauty blog and all of the looks she has created has been amazing.  A number of other beauty bloggers have participated in this too.  Today’s FOTD Challenge is Cleopatra – it was my suggestion so it is only right that I participate, although I did struggle with it.  I kept jabbing my eye!!!  I’ll never be a make-up artist but it’s still fun to play with make-up!

Here’s my take on Cleopatra :-

When I think of Cleopatra, I think of strong brows, bold eyes with thick black eyeliner, sculpted cheeks and red lips.


The eyelashes are from KKCenterHK – EYE’S CHIC 816 Bird Of Paradise Fake Eyelashes*^.  The inner half is criss-cross and the outer half is outrageously long.  They are pretty cool but not suitable for everyday use.

      @Celina, >_< Thanks lovely!!!! I am telling the truth when I say this – but as I was doing the liner part, I was recalling what you said in your video tute – take it slowly and don't be put off if you make mistakes! Thanks to your fab advice 😀

      @Vita, I picked it up in the Zara in UK a couple of years ago. I think they still sell cosmetics…I hope so anyway because I quite liked their stuff!
