Purple (or is it plum??) And Khaki EOTD

You Tube is a wonderful place with tons of videos to copy from learn from for a makeup newbie like me.  Since I waste the eyeshadows trying to practice what I see, I figured I might as well make a post out of it and salvage something :P

Today's trial was with Inglot's purple-plum eyeshadow (Pearl 446) and khaki (Pearl 419).  Go on and scroll down to see what I wasted the day doing :D
  • Used NYX HD eyeshadow base all over the lid.
  • Used ELF black pencil liner to line thickly close to upper lashline and into the roots of the lashes, then smudged it.  This way I won't have any gaps when I am done with my eyeshadows and I can skip applying a liquid liner.  It also makes the lashes look darker.
  • Used Maybelline gel liner in grey - Charbon - all over the lid and blended it towards the crease area.

  • Used Inglot's khaki eyeshadow in the inner half of the lid.
  • Used Inglot's plum-purple eyeshadow (Pearl 446) in the outer half of the lid.  Also overlapped it a bit over the khaki eyeshadow.  This way I can make it look like I did some blending without actually being that great at it.
  • Dabbed a bit of the khaki eyeshadow in the inner corner of the eyelids.
  • Blend the purple eyeshadow onto the khaki and soften the khaki in the inner corner.

  • Using the same brush that I used to apply the grey gel liner all over the lid and with whatever is left on the brush, lined softly along the lower lashline - about 2/3 of the way in.  Used the khaki eyeshadow to line softly along the remaining inner 1/3.
  • Used a powder foundation to blend the shadows near the crease area and under the brow.
  • Used Maybelline gel liner in black to tightline and to line the lower waterline lightly (I didn't want a dark black line).

I used MAC duo concealer and set it with a powder foundation (and that didn't work too well for concealing under my eyes - I will just leave that for another day!).  Used a primer over my face and a dusting of pressed powder.  Finished with Avon lip liner in Mystic Mauve topped with Chanel glossimer in Praline.

And then I ate some roasted corn salad and strawberry yogurt (no...I didn't mix the two up in a bowl - all eaten separately, one after the other..hmmmmmmmmmph.)
