January 2011 Series: 11th

Here's my I-can't-believe-I-gotta-be-in-front-of-the-mirror-for-so-long-at-9:30am-look. I would like to remember what in the world I was thinking when I thought of this January 2011 series self-challenge. I am not a morning person & I will admit that I would much rather sleep in than stare at myself in the mirror for those extra minutes spent applying eyeshadow. Doing this will be so much fun on Monday (17th) since I have a 9am seminar to attend, ugh!

For this look, I started off by applying a white base on the lid up to the brow, in the tearduct area, & on the lower lashline. A matte white eyeshadow was used as the highlight. A light green that is a bit shimmery was then applied on the browbone & blended in with the highlight. This light green was applied till the crease. A darker shade of light green was applied over the entire lid, on the lower lashline, & in the tearduct area. Next, a cranberry shade was lightly applied above the crease & was used to blend both greens. A shimmery white was then used over the matte white that was applied as the highlight & in the tearduct area. A black eye pencil was used to tightline, applied on the waterline, & line the upper lashline. Black mascara was then used on the upper & lower lashes.
