January 2011 Series: 9th

An easy & fairly neutral look. I had no idea what colour combination to use, so I started off by picking what I wanted to wear - a burgundy top. I didn't want to match my clothes too much, so I decided to do an orange & brown look. Even though I used orange in this look, the way I applied the orange didn't make it look too bright & the shades blended together gave me a fairly neutral look on my skin tone.

I started off by using a neutral base. Next I patted an orange eyeshadow to the lid, but since the colour was a bit bright, I decided to spread it out a bit to achieve a lighter shade of orange instead of patting the eyeshadow all over the lid, which intensifies the colour. After I built it up to the shade of orange that I wanted, I used a matte dark brown in the crease to blend out the orange & blended the brown upward till the browbone. I also applied this shade to the lower lashline, even though it looks like I applied the orange eyeshadow. It appears this way because I didn't pat on the brown colour, but lightly brushed it across the lower lashline. A shimmery gold was applied as the highlight (my camera doesn't seem to pick up my highlight colours properly, so it appears as if I only applied the highlight halfway!) & this shimmery gold was applied in the tearduct area as well. Black eyeliner was used to tightline, applied on the waterline, & line the upper lashline. Black mascara was used too.

Note: This post was posted late because I got back home a few minutes after midnight, but I haven't gone to sleep yet, so my 9th night hasn't ended yet!
