Now, prepare yourself, because I took a lot of pictures. The basic process was: put on primer, then a little bit of each color, not trying to keep it in a tiny line. Once I had all the colors, I went back with makeup remover to clean up everything, trying to get the nice, neat, crisp little line pictured there. Then I messed it all up putting liquid/gel liner on my way-too-crinkly eyelids, used more makeup remover, then concealer and nude shadow with a contrast in the crease, mascara and forgot all about the white on the lower waterline and glitter. How could I forget glitter?!?
|My favorite primer in the whole wide world |
that I found because of Brightest Bulb in the Box
|ridiculously cheap Love My Lips red|
lipstick, to make the red redder
|Sephora's Cherry on Top, |
|And so it begins|
|Milani blush/bronzer duo that |
I use as eyeshadow,
because neither of those colors
other than my eyeids
|There really are 2 colors there|
|I really needed access to my friend |
Kathleen's makeup for this.
My yellow isn't very yellowy
(top right). More gold-ish.
|Getting the yellow to show up |
was hard, so I used the NYX milk
pencil under it for added oomph. T
hat's oomph. Not very oomphy
|I'm running out of eyelid. Also,|
too much light. Sorry.
|I've always been quite pleased with|
this little duo, even if I don't wear
poison green eyeshadow often.
|Finally looks like a rainbow|
|For an inexpensive palette, I love|
this thing. The colors are pretty rich
and with primer, they last all day
|Not quite as thin or crisp|
as I'd hoped
Story of my life
Then I ruined everything with this eyeliner:
I got it all over my lashes, which created quite a mess. There was more touch-ups and reapplying and touching up and then re-re-applying and then I put on Kat Von D's tattoo cover-up concealer, MAC's Yogurt eyeshadow (which is as close to my skin color as I've yet to find), some Clinique blush in Mocha Pink as a contour, Tarte mascara, my Urban Decay brow box powders and called it good.
