Face and nails of the day

As requested by my sister I have painted my nails with Priti NYC festival  gitana (she wanted to see what the colour looks like). Like i mentioned before you need two coats with this colour. It isn't my favourite from their range but it is different, so I do like it for summer. The colour looks like you mixed up yellow and orange together (a bit like raw egg yolk).
And then I thought that I should match my eye make-up to my nails.
I used mac eye shadow in yellow chrome on my lid and espresso shade on the lash line (from the middle to the outside corner on both upper and lower lash line) for a little more definition. Both colours are matte. If you want a more natural alternative to the yellow eyeshadow bellapierre has a similar colour called money (however the bellapierre colour has shimmer). I will be switching to bellapierre once my mac shadows run out.
On my lips I used ilia lip conditioner in bang bang-red. It is a darker strawberry red rather than a tomato red. It isn't as intense as red lipstick although you could intensify it by applying more. I find it a great day to night lipstick. When it fades it leaves a strawberry stain.
One last thing about the eye shadow. It looks more intense in the natural light than it does indores with electric lighting. So  I prefer it as a daytime look I wouldn't have it on a night out, it just doesn't have the same effect.
