I don't often buy magazines. I get so bored with the sameness of them all and the fact that so many are really months behind with the fabulous fashion we find online. But occasionally (like when my internet is down) I do actually buy one or two. In my latest, there was quite a spread on the Australian Fashion Week, and in particular, showed some gorgeous eye make up. Given that I like to experiment, I wanted to try out some of the more extreme looks. So until I can get my hands on some gold leaf and an airbrush, I had to make do with what was in my drawer. So here is todays effort based on this advertisement for Max Factor.

Tomorrow, the Mr and I are heading to an 1980's theme party. I am planning to go a'la Joan Collins in Dynasty. So I have to work on the smoky, heavy eyes and big hair. I can hardly wait, I just love an excuse to play dress up. And the Alexis attitude? Well, I don't think that will be too much of a stretch for this drama queen.
