In a post I did last week, posted a picture of the famous Boracay sunset which I had lifted off from some website. So silly of me to forget that I actually posted an album of my Boracay Island holiday 4 years ago on my Facebook account! That island is like paradise, I swear, one of the best beaches in my country, and if I may so boldly declare, one of the best in the world. And it's famous, and often revered sunset is just the icing on the cake. Ahh, how I wish I'd get the chance to go back someday.

Since last week's post, I always have flashbacks of that exact moment when I snapped this photo. Dusk was breaking, and I was just completely enthralled at how beautiful the sky was. The swirls of gold, amber and grey in front of my eyes was just beyond words... It was inspiring. So inspiring that when I was casually walking by the cosmetics section at the shopping centre last week (HAHA!), I thought to myself, "how 'bout I recreate the colours of the sunset in my eyes?" Brilliant.... excuse to shop for more cosmetics, right??? LOL!

E.L.F. Eyeshadow Duo (Mocha Swirl), E.L.F. Studio Contour Brush, 4U2 Glitz 2 Colour Eyeshadow in No. 03/863
E.L.F. has lured me in again for I did not have these colours in my E.L.F. Eye Manual - Bright Eyes Edition. I haven't tried 4U2 ever before, to be honest, I haven't heard of it before (lol)... But what sold me to it is that lovely gold/orange shadow and the gunmetal silver. It wasn't fairly expensive, so I decided to give this one a go.

My P&S did a good job at capturing the exact colour of these swatches. These 4 colours remind me of that glorious sunset, and now it's time to test drive these two new additions to my growing cosmetics collection!

|Sunset In My Eyes|
Okay... so the highlight may be a little light (still learning the ropes of putting on make-up, seriously), this was my first attempt, so please cut me some slack *hehe*. This one's good for daytime make-up, I guess. For night, well, I'm gonna amp it up a notch with the highlighter.
See, I shouldn't be reminiscing too much... For when I do, I tend to raid the cosmetics counter. Haha....
Have a lovely day, my dears.
