Looks – Super Smoky Black, Green, and Gold Eye

I don’t think I’ve done three days of makeup in quite awhile! For some reason, the upper “liner” is 1) not very prominent, 2) looks separated from my lash line even though when I applied, it looked fine. Don’t you hate when you’re all good to go, then you upload photos, and you’re like, “Oh, oops!” I had a totally different vision for the upper liner (I wanted something dark but glimmering with gold flecks), so maybe it was all the stuff I did to it that made it kind of wonky in the end, LOL.

Thanks for all the encouragement, I always appreciate it :) It really does inspire me!

I used Emerald Green pigment all over lid, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner crease, Wondergrass eyeshadow on lid, Humid eyeshadow on middle of lid, Carbon eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Goldmine eyeshadow above crease, Golden Lemon pigment dusted all over lid (then gently swished over the lid, going back and intensifying the original colors of Wondergrass & Humid), Nylon eyeshadow on brow bone to highlight, Femme Noir eyeshadow along upper lash line, Blitzed glitter liner along upper lash line, Carbon eyeshadow along upper lash line, Feline kohl power on lower waterline/lash line, Goldmine eyeshadow on inner tearduct and inner lower lash line, Humid eyeshadow on outer lower lash line, and Plushblack plushlash mascara on lashes (top and bottom). I wore Other Worldly blush with Daisydust beauty powder on cheeks. I had Brew lipstick with Pink Grapefruit lipglass dusted with Reflects Bronze glitter on lips.

Looks – Deeper Smoky Eye for Evening Out

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. Yesterday, I posted the subtle evening look. The difference? I added Silver Ring eyeshadow to the middle lid with Vex all over the inner lid.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Carbon eyeshadow in the outer crease, Silver Ring eyeshadow on middle lid, Vex eyeshadow on inner lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes. I wore True Romantic blush on cheeks with Tenderdusk beauty powder to highlight. I had Sweetie lipstick with Dreamy lipglass on my lips.

Looks – Subtle Smoky Eye for the Evening Out

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. Yesterday, I posted the kicked up daytime look, and now this an evening look/night time look. The difference? Now we’ve really amped up the crease by using Carbon eyeshadow and going heavier on the black liner. (*Note: for some reason the crease doesn’t look perfectly blended, but in person, it was fine – I kept going back and freaking out over it because it would show up harsher in the photos but then there was nothign to blend away when I looked in the mirror!!)

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes. I wore True Romantic blush on cheeks with Tenderdusk beauty powder to highlight. I had Sweetie lipstick with Dreamy lipglass on my lips.

Looks – Heatherette Trio #1 Fake-it in Smoky Teal

Even though Mood Ring is gorgeous, and the packaging for the eyeshadow trios is sleek and up my alley, I just can’t bring myself to buy it quite yet. So I set out to dupe a look I know I’d do as soon as I got the trio instead… BTW, clean your brushes often! I went to fix part of the inner lid, and what do you know, I get some teal-black, too.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Shroom eyeshadow on inner lid, Aquavert eyeshadow on middle of lid, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on middle lid, Cloudburst eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Newly Minted eyeshadow patted on outer crease, Shimmermoss eyeshadow on outer lid, Shroom eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Black Funk/Pop Blue dual edge pencil on lower lash line, Gorgeous Gold eyeshadow on lower inner lash line, Plushblack mascara, and Brun eyeshadow for brows. I wore Springsheen blush on cheeks with Guerlain Mythic Parfait Pressed Meterorite to highlight cheeks. I had Soft Lust lipstick with Vital Spark and Tartlette lipglass on my lips.

* This look is meant to replicate one that could be made using Heatherette Trio 1. Shroom = Hoppin'; Mood Ring = Aquavert, Newly Minted, Shimmermoss (They all get muddled together in this look – Aquadisiac + Newly Minted would also work; Meadowland is a good dupe on its own); Cloudburst = Cloudburst eyeshadow (launched with Blue Storm) — can be replaced with Carbon and layer Shimmermoss (tap it) for the slight blue reflects from Cloudburst.

** The lips are meant to also duplicate Heatherette products: Soft Lust = Lollipop Lovin’ (no green reflects in this version); Vital Spark + Tartlette = Sock Hop with shimmer.

Looks – Ultra Black Smoky Eye, Easy Smoky Eye

I felt like doing a super dark eye, which I didn’t execute as well as I would have liked, but it’s just something so dramatic and fun, I couldn’t resist not taking photos!

I used Blacktrack fluidline all over lid, Carbon eyeshadow all over lid, Vex eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Pink Opal pigment on lower lash line. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush with Sculpt sculpting powder to contour and Micro Pink beauty powder to highlight. I had Strawberry Blonde lipstick with Lull lipglass.
