matte purple eotd
ELF $1 eyeshadow primer
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
88 matte eyeshadow palette
Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips gel liner in purple (came with the 'Green Eyes' trio)
Physician's Formula Shimmer Strips purple/black mascara duo, only used the black side
I'm really pleased with how this came out. I've been in such an eyeshadow rut lately, I feel like I can't create beautiful looks like so many of you do. Partly I feel like it's my face's fault because my eyes are hopelessly lopsided and they go downwards at the outer corner rather than up. Also I've been stuck in this thinking that I have to put shadow on in the same order every time. Without fail, I will put my lid color on, then my crease, then my highlight. Every single time! Then I was watching a youtube vid the other day where the guru put on her crease color first thing, and the lightbulb came on over my head and I thought 'Hey, I should try that!' So that's what I did with this eye look. I really think it helped me to outline my crease first without the lid color in the way to distract me. Plus I think it just looks better blended. I'm really going to try and do it that way more often.
Quick rave: I am in LOVE with the Physician's Formula gel liners and mascaras! They are so awesome! I already had an HG mascara, but PF duo mascara is seriously giving it a run for its money. I never expected to like the black side of that mascara as much as I do. Do you guys have any of the gel liners or mascaras? If not, you should totally get some! They are simply divine. The eyeshadow palettes in the 'POP' collection are kind of hit or miss, from what I hear, but the liners and mascaras are wonderful!
