January 2011 Series: 12th

Since it snowed a lot & was all white outside today, I felt like applying white eyeshadow & keeping the use of black & dark colours to a minimum. I came up with a white, pink, & purple look.

This look was started off by applying a neutral base. A matte white eyeshadow was then applied all over the lid till the brow & in the tearduct area. A pink shade was applied in the crease & blended out with the white. The pink was also applied on the inner third of the lower lashline. A purple eyeshadow was then applied on the outer two-thirds of the lower lashline & blended with the pink. This purple was also applied in the outer V & above the crease till the browbone. This purple was blended well with the previously applied pink & white. Black eyeliner was used to apply a thin line on the upper lashline. Black mascara was used on the upper & lower lashes as well.

I debated applying a white or silver eyeliner on the waterline, but I thought it would look better without it since I kept the black eyeliner to a minimum. If I had applied my eyeliner thicker, like I usually do, then I would have applied silver eyeliner on my waterline. This look, however, looked fine with my skin tone. A little more white or even silver might have looked a bit odd on me, so I skipped it.

Pictures were taken when I got back home at night, so I touched up on the tearduct area & lower lashline. Wish I had noticed that crooked eyeliner too. Oh well.
