Funky Black 'n Blue

Here's a recent FOTD, wore this to work two nights ago and some people looked at me crazy...
Maybe my perception of 'work-appropriate' is a little off...

I always wanted to rock the Amy Winehouse eye...here is my version!

*~*Black 'n Blue Wings*~*


Products used for Eyes:

- UDPP as base
- M.A.C e/s in Freshwater (shimmery sky blue)
- M.A.C e/s in Carbon (matte black)
- M.A.C e/s in Casino (similar to Amber Lights, a golden peachy brown w/gold shimmer)
- M.A.C e/s in Shroom (soft golden beige w/shimmer)
- Revlon ColorStay Liquid liner in Black
- Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara in Black

How To:

1. Apply UDPP from lashline to brow. Make sure it dries completely.

2. Apply Freshwater e/s (blue) from lashline to crease with a small, dense crease brush.


3. Apply Carbon e/s about a third of the way from the outer corner of eye. Then fling it up at an angle at the corner. Add more shadow to the corner, thickening the winged part. I used a small detail brush for this step.


4. Define 1/3 of crease with Carbon e/s.


5. Apply Casino e/s on top of black color, to get the 'rainbow' effect goin'.


6. Apply Shroom e/s from middle of lid where there is no color, to brow.

7. Line eyes with dark liquid liner, and apply mascara.

Here's what it looks like without liner & mascara, so you can see the color better.
