now that spring finally decided to make a couple of appearances in new york i have really been in the mood for more colorful make-up...
eyes: you might have noticed that i have been using mac's all that glitters a loooot lately. it is so suitable to start out most looks with because it is such a beautiful close-to-nude shimmer that will make it easy to avoid not-sufficiently-blended looking eye shadows. (i would also highly recommend this color if you are not toooo comfortable with wearing shadow on your eye lids at all. you can not go wrong with this.) anyway, after a rather generous amount of it, i blotted bare escentuals loose powder, in the buff on the center of the movable lid, on the inner corners of my eyes and below the arch of my eye brows. with a small eye shadow brush i drew coppering (by mac) along both lash rows and also on the outer v. with a short bristled brush (similar to #214 by mac) i carefully placed my sparkly-blue shadow liberty (that i first told you about here) on my bottom eye lid. i then decided to optically deepen the crease more, which i achieved with a couple of strokes of antiqued (also by mac). the most important step for this look was coating the bottom waterline with a turquoise eyeliner.... and to refine it a bit more... i used aquadisiac (anooother mac eye shadow...) for the bottom tear duct.
since this eye-make-up had a lot of layers and such....... i did my new-default-look on the rest of my face.
