There are several problems with this eye. I won't go into it, though. I give myself points for brightness, fun, and perseverance!! I really had to persevere with that awful matte blue (I think it's called Chaos). The eyeshadows used here are from the Urban Decay Vice palette. The blue liquid liner is a Milani pen that was limited edition about six months ago, give or take.
I know the foundation looks really dark, above, especially when compared to my day-glow white neck. I assure you that in person, it looked quite fine. I have this trouble a lot where my foundation looks natural and lovely in real life, but not so good in pictures. I hope you'll forgive me.
Here I am wearing colors from Stila's holiday Luxe eyeshadow palette! I really like it! I'm also wearing Illamasqua Morale blush and Buxom Starr gloss (so much prettier in person). The liquid liner is the burgundy color from Make Up For Ever Aqua.
I'm still getting used to my fun new brow things (Anastasia brow powder duo in Ash Blonde/Taupe, used here, and also Hourglass Soft Brunette pencil). I wish my brow didn't look so scraggledy below, but I'm really happy with the powder color. I just used the lighter side of the duo only.
Next look! I'm playing with a new Lorac mint eyeshadow palette from Ulta (mint shadow smudged into Korres white/green soft liner on lowers). I also tried my Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Orchid on the lid/crease. The liner is YSL black cream, which wore like a rockstar, I'm happy to say.
I'm not all the way content with this liner shape, but I'm proud of myself for going outside my comfort zone. I've decided that I want to do more winged liner and just deal with the dread and discomfort of it until I've mastered it and it's no big deal anymore. Or something like that. :)
I used the Hourglass brow pencil here. Also, I'm wearing MAC Full of Joy blush and YSL Glossy Stain #17.
Last is another Spring-ish sort of look that I wore yesterday. I wanted to try the Caviar Stick in Seashell. It's an odd kind of pastel yellow gold color that I was worried wouldn't look so good on me. I think I've gotten over that worry now. I really like how brightening it is!
The blue liner on the upper lash line is Tarina Tarantino Glamorous Thief. The lower is a combination of Korres soft pencil in 3 smudged with Sephora Outrageous Lilac Prisma Chrome eyeshadow. I'm using the Anastasia brow powder here with Perfekt clear gel over top (not sure how I feel about the gel yet).
The Caviar Sticks feel kind of sticky and strange to me when I don't use powder shadows over top of them. They wear very well, though, so I don't mind all that much. My blush here is Tarte Amazonian Clay Dollface and my lipstick is by Terry Grenadine Diablotine, blotted.
Oh! And it simply must be noted that I'm also wearing my Guerlain Meteorites Perles du Paradis in this last face. <3
Let me know if you have questions about anything and I'll do my best to answer. I hope you enjoyed the different looks!
