** Try substituting Chrome Yellow or Nylon for Going Bananas (or Bright Sunshine, a pro color); Bitter for Overgrown (or Sour Lemon, a pro color); Swimming for Wondergrass (or Bio-Green, a pro color); Style for Other Worldly; C-Thru for Trifle.

Okay, I was trying to do this whole horizontal placement thing, and it just doesn’t work well with my eye shape, I don’t think! When the eye is open (as it most often is), it just didn’t look right, so I had to fudge it up a bit to make it more my style (this is the result). Could have used some more blending at the top, but at least the lips rocked! And the colors were bright :)

I used Pink Pearl pigment on lid (PRO), Stars ‘n Rockets eyeshadow on lid, Parfait Amour eyeshadow in crease, Contrast eyeshadow above crease, Thunder eyeshadow above Contrast (LE), Nylon eyeshadow on brow, Royal Wink fluidliner on upper lash line, Lovely Lily pigment on lower lash line (LE), Graphblack technakohl on lower waterline, and Plushblack plushlash mascara on lashes. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush (LE) on cheeks. I had Show Orchid (PRO) lipstick with Cult Fave lipglass (LE) on my lips.

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.

I’m trying REALLY hard to be creative with makeup, like I’m trying to go outside of my usual box (which is challenging in itself because I honestly like my box quite a lot!) at least a step or two (baby steps!). Anyway, upper lash liner again, though after seeing pics, it should extend a few millimeters more, but oh well.

I used Rollickin’ paint pot on lid, Parfait Amour eyeshadow all over lid, Juxt eyeshadow above inner crease/inner lid, Silver Ring eyeshadow on outer crease, Cinders eyeshadow on outer lid, A Bluer Blue eyeshadow above outer crease, Overgrown eyeshadow above inner and middle crease, White Tie eyeshadow on brow to highlight, Royal Wink fluidline on upper lash line with Parfait Amour eyeshadow patted over it, Overgrown eyeshadow on lower lash line, Blacktrack fluidline on lower lash line, and Plushblack plushlash mascara. I wore Don’t Be Shy blush with Lightly Lilac beauty powder on cheeks. I had Utter Pervette lipstick with Cult Fave lipglass with a touch of Totally It! lipglass on my lips.

I really wanted to play around and do something FUN! after we talked about if we ever just played around with our makeup stashes last week.

Over the top? Oh, yes, I think so! I used a tiny, tiny angle brush to apply Blacktrack to my upper lash line to see if that still irritates it… we shall see. I’m not loving upper lash liner on me, but it’d still be nice to do every time and again!

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Primary Yellow pigment all over lid, Going Bananas eyeshadow on inner lid, Fab & Flashy eyeshadow on middle of lid, Romping eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Fuchsia pigment on outer crease and above crease, Going Bananas eyeshadow above crease, Motif eyeshadow on brow, Blacktrack fluidline on upper and lower lash lines, Going Bananas eyeshadow on lower lash line, and Plushblack mascara. I had Fleurry blush on cheeks with Daisydust beauty powder to highlight. I wore Show Orchid lipstick (PRO) [lightly] with Totally It! lipglass on my lips.

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.
