This isn’t a full look — just the eyes. I was testing out some settings and lenses with my camera, so I threw this on really quickly to get an idea of how colors and makeup were going to show up :)

What’s everyone got going on for the weekend? Me, I’m spending it working on our Top Secret Temptalia Project ;)

You will need the following…

  • Eyes: Soft Ochre paint pot (neutral beige base), Pink Opal pigment (white-pink), Lotusland eyeshadow (light purple), Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow (fuchsia-purple), Sketch eyeshadow (burgundy), Rite of Spring eyeshdaow (white-pink), Urban Decay Ransom 24/7 Liner (purple), Plushlash mascara (black)
  • Brushes: 266 (firm, angled brush), 226 (fluffy crease brush), 219 (pointed crease brush), 214 (smudge brush), 249 (flat, firm brush), 239 (fluffy shadow brush)
  • Substitutes: Lotusland = Parfait Amour + Digit; Rite of Spring = Pink Opal

Directions: Define brows using a coordinating powder shadow applied with the 266 brush. Apply Soft Ochre paint pot all over the lid as the base with the 249. With the 239, apply Pink Opal pigment with water-based mixing medium on the lower lid. On the inner lid, pack Lotusland eyeshadow on using the 239. Apply Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow to the middle and outer portions of the lid. Darken crease with Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow using the 226, then deepen with Sketch eyeshadow with the 219. Sweep Rite of Spring eyeshadow underneath the brow bone to highlight. Finish with Urban Decay Ransom Liner on lower lash line, and Plushlash mascara on lashes.
