January 2011 Series: 13th

Browns, white, & purple.

A neutral base was used on the lid till the brow, in the tearduct area, & on the lower lashline. A matte light brown eyeshadow was used on the lid. Next, a matte white shade was used as the highlight & in the tearduct area. A darker matte brown was then used on the browbone & blended upward with the matte white highlight & downward as well. A shimmery dark purple was then used on the outer V & crease & blended with the darker brown on the browbone & the light brown on the eyelid. The fluffy brush that I used has gotten a bit too fluffy & the bristles have spread, which is why the purple went all over on the outer third of the lid, instead of being controlled mainly in the crease area as I had originally planned. The shimmery dark purple was also applied on the lower lashline till the point where my inner lashes start & then carefully blended inward to meet the matte white in the tearduct area. The last eyeshadow that was used was a shimmery white shade on top of the previously applied white highlight. The look was finished off by applying black liquid eyeliner on the upper lashline & black mascara on the upper & lower lashes.

I'm faced with indecisiveness today & can't just pick 2 or 3 pictures.
