It's not often that I get the chance to do a 'just for fun' look that isn't for a series or review or anything so today's post is pretty special. The only inspiration I had for this look was "shopping my own stash" as they say; getting a chance to dust off some unused colors and try them out. The eyeshadow I've been most looking forward to playing with is my "Blackened Turquoise" from The Body Needs, so it's the star of this look. I love it, it's a deep, dark iridescent turquoise color unlike anything else in my collection (and I have over 1,000 eyeshadow shades, for real). But don't take my word for it, see how beautiful it is for yourself; I used it as the main lid color in this look. Stunning, no?
I also need to take a moment to revisit my love affair with the Faux "Dark Slant" lashes. They are just so damn sexy! Sigh. Okay, moment over. Moving on. Here are the rest of the pictures & a tutorial too! Gee!
The purple eyeshadow in this look is Empress from Lime Crime (I will actually be doing a new Lime Crime review soon, thanks Lime Crime!). I love how the magic dust eyeshadow glistens in the light on the lower lid. It's like looking into an amethyst. Unfortunately this shade and all their other magic dust eyeshadows are being discontinued so if you want to grab a color you need to get them before their gone!
Here's the full face look, something I don't have the luxury to do a lot of these days. But I think it turned out nicely; what do you think? The lips are a mix of liner, and two lipsticks. I'm trying to get better at doing my lips but it's not as easy as it looks. I think soon I might try to do an ombre lip. Would you guys like to see that? Anyways, here's the tutorial for the look...
