Leopard print...eye make-up!


My obsession with leopard print is well documented. I have countless of leopard print RTW clothes, undies, shoes, wellies, a coat, umbrella and other accessories. I've also sewn up a fair few things using leopard print fabric and will probably continue to do so until I'm too old to carry it off. I went a step further this New Year's Eve by applying leopard print eye make-up, but I did have the good sense not to coordinate my outfit! I think my boyfriend was a little worried when I eagerly proclaimed that it could totally work as an everyday or even wedding-day look. And, no, I wasn't even joking!  


Don't worry, I haven't completely lost the plot. I know this post has nothing to do with stitching. But I also know that a good number of you have a soft spot for leopard print too. So I figured I'd share the love by linking to the easy peasy YouTube tutorial I used. You know...in case you want to look this 'cool' too ;o)




So, what do you think to leopard print eye make-up? A step too far or a bit of fun?

    1. Hehe, you're so polite Amy! The blouse is actually a dress from Urban Outfitters...one of my most favourites!

  2. I think the rest of your hair & make-up, as well as your top are so elegant looking that you can get away with this little splash of ironic fun!

  12. I am all for more leopard print. How fun! I long ago gave up wearing almost any eye makeup but mascara since it feels pointless with eyeglasses and sometimes a little winged liner, but I love when people try bold eye makeup!

    And pshaw, I hope you're still wearing leopard print when you're a little old lady! What better time to have a little fun. I know I certainly plan to. ;)

    1. High five fellow leopard print lover! You know, I'm very 'boring' when it comes to eye makeup usually. It's just eyeliner and nothing else, so I'm glad I experimented for NYE a little ;o)

  14. I think it is fun - life is too short to be serious all the time. Me, I'm hopeless with makeup and never really bother, when I do wear it, I forget and then touch it by mistake and ruin it!
