I haven't properly played with or worn eyeshadow in ages which is most unlike me. It's my favourite part of doing my makeup. So today, whilst it was all thundery and raining outside I decided to attempt what for me would be a going-out look. I'm not brave enough to wear this in the day!! 
I dont have any special tips or techniques as I'm far from a pro. I used Mac Painterly paint pot as a base to even out my eyelid and make the eyeshadow last all day without creasing. I then dusted a tiny amount of my face powder (Revlon Nearly Naked) over the top as I find it can make blending eyeshadows easier over this rather than just the base alone if its not been set. I then used Mac Expensive Pink(a light shimmery peachy pink with gold flecks)from my tear ducts to halfway across the lid, and then applied Mac Summer Plum(a matte medium purple) to the outer half of my eyelid. I overlapped the two colours in the middle to help them blend. I used a fluffy brush and swept it over the edges to soften the colours. Then I repeated what I did to the top lid on the bottom beneath the lash line, making sure to join the purple on the top and bottom on the outer edge. The mascara i used was Maybelline define a lash waterproof in black(amazing).I never wear colours like this but I think I would wear this out. For night time I'd probably add a dark purple eyeliner on the waterline-Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner pencil in blackberry would be perfect. And some lashes. 
Would you wear something like this? I think these colours would look even better on green eyes.

  1. I want your eyebrows! And your eyelashes :)
    This looks lovely on you but I don't think I could be brave enough to do it myself, I usually stick with neutrals or none at all! xx

    1. Haha thank you...I didn't leave the house, neutrals for me in the daytime too :) but it was fun to play xox
