Pink Eye

Here's my EOTD...Pink and purple! I am trying to branch out of my comfort zone (browns and golds) and play with all sorts of colors. This morning I felt like matching my eyeshadow with my Marc Ecko sweater...This look only took 15 minutes from start to finish! Super-convenient for those late/sleepy mornings!
I couldn't get the damn settings on my camera to work with the morning light...so I had to take additional pics after I got home tonight...which explains the disheveled 'yamamba' hair hahahaha...

*~*Pink and Purple Eye*~*


What I used...

Face:
- M.A.C StudioFix in NC30 applied w/buffer brush

Eyes:
- M.A.C Paint Pot in Painterly
- Urban Decay e/s in Scratch (golden coral-pink) from Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box
- M.A.C e/s in Shale (purplish taupe)
- M.A.C e/s in Naked Lunch (minimal pink w/shimmer)
- Kate liquid liner
- Maybelline Volum' Express Mascara

Cheeks:
- NYX Blush in Peach (bubblegum pink, NOT peach-y at all.)

Lips:
- NYX lipliner in Beige
- Milani lipstick in Amaretto

EYES How To:
1. Apply Painterly Paint Pot all over lids from lashline to brow.
2. With a tapered blending brush apply Scratch e/s from lashline, and extend to contour.
3. With a dense, flat e/s brush, apply Shale e/s from lashline, and extend slightly past crease.
4. Use tapered blending brush and apply more of that pink color (Scratch) above the purple, defining contour and outer V as you go along. Make sure you blend out harsh lines w/windshield-wiper motions.
5. Apply Naked Lunch e/s under brow to highlight.
6. Apply liquid liner to top lashline only. Then apply mascara.

Jaaaaaan!

After I got home from work tonight...

See the pink ABOVE the purple and in outer V? Make sure to blend so the line doesn't look like an actual defined line. You want a wash of color, not a streak. Am I making any sense?


Fuzzy hair, major roots!
My boyfriend messin' around w/the camera... ;)

Is everyone having a nice, relaxing weekend? I hope so ;)
