Caribbean seas, Mrs Pepperpot and her bun

EOTD : inspired by my tank top...I know the Queen of heart will decapitate me over the unthinkable : She matches her make up with her cloths !!!!
I made a funny experiment : I used Shimmermoss from MAC under my eye, then I mix colors from my sleek palette to achieve the same color in the outer V...Can you tell the difference, I can't ! Sometimes, we obsess over a color we want so badly and with a little bit of blending and mixing, we can produce the exact same color so the same effect, no ?...
I used a matte white from Annabelle (which name I can't remember) on the lid. It's comparable to Gesso (MAC). Eyeliner : MUFE flesh color from the set of aqua colors pencils. Mascara : L'Oreal Telescopic....

Why the Face ? I was told by a colleague that with my bun, I reminded her of Mrs Pepperpot. OK , She was a nice cartoon (old) lady helping everybody but not exactly the description of GLAMOUR. If you are too young to know who is MRS Pepperpot :
1- I hate you just ..because you're too young
2- Go and google it to estimate the level of Glamour (I'd say 0.5/10)

So instead of a classic bun, I did a twisted one to prevent me from ever looking like Mrs Pepperpot EVER AGAIN !

JOTD : very easy DIY earrings. Those beads were part of an old necklace that was totally destroyed. I kept all the beads and save those big ones for pendant earrings...

Have a nice day, lovelies...

Caro ready to pepperpot the world xxx

  4. Love your posts and your pictures!!I think you look so cute!
    And lately your pictures are so great!you have a glow!:)

  5. Hmmm, I did have to google Mrs. Pepperpot. I think your colleague meant that your nice personality reminded her of Mrs. Pepperpot perhaps? You don't look old and I think you're a stylish Mom Caro :) The twist in your bun does make it more unique though in a good way.
    Yeah, I guess with mixing shadows you can come up with many different colours. The Shimmermoss and the Sleek colours you used look identical to me as you said. But sometimes I'm so lazy to mix colours LOL
    Have a lovely start to your week :)

  6. Hahahahaha Mrs Pepperpot :D Tee-hee!

    You're not Mrs Pepperpot at all! Your mixed up colour look identical!
