Purple Eyes!!

My attempt at doing a different purple eye is 99% success!! =D=D=D haha. The 1% is not getting it pigmented enough. I used Michelle Phan's Purple Hazy Look on YT as a guide to what to do. Love her videos.
The white palette is from Yumeko and the one on the right is the Lunasol purple gradation palette. I originally wanted to do the whole look using the white palette, but I found the colors not pigmented enough so I went over them with the Lunasol palette. I also used the top left shade from Lunasol but forgot to mark it.
Simple look, very little to fuss over. I thought the falsies were what gave that finished "glamour" look for this EOTD.

There was a lack of lighting in my box, but I did my best. This was my first attempt to line the lower lashline and take a picture of it. I often think I look odd with the lower lashline done, so I leave it. I think when I don't line the lower lashline, it's a more natural way to do my makeup, because of course I don't wanna look toooo different without makeup.

I tried to do sort of a feathered wing, I think it came out ok. Just make sure you smudge it with a sponge tip applicator and add enough shadow to make it apparent.
The colors are a lot more vibrant in person. I have a bit of trouble putting on the half falsies, I can't seem to get one end of it to stick well.
Omg..look at my eyebrows HAHA! I still haven't attempted to shape them myself, except pluck the strays, and I'm feeling too chicken shit to use a brow pencil. My skin gets quite oily and I don't want a fading eyebrow. I was going to get the Laneige brow set, but decided against it, because I know once I do my brows, I'm gonna have to do them often so I don't look sickly when I go out.
Baskin Robbins has a super cute summer theme! They have blue cups with polar bears on them. There are also some new ice cream cakes. I just remember the lion one being new, can't remember the rest.

I'm making my list of "To Buy" for Hong Kong and it doesn't look too big. The main things I want to get are the P&J Whitening Serum, Muji brushes (super soft!!!), JS Jelly Eyes and some Beauty Maker if I can find it. I'm thinking of buying less HE brands this time.
Something non makeup related would be some more Re-ment and a designer handbag, which I don't have. I really want an Agnes B handbag, but couldn't find one I like the last time I was in HK.

I'm in a bit of a pickle. I don't know if I should keep my P&J foundation. I seem to scratch my face a lot more when I'm using it and it comes off a lot easier than the Lunasol foundation....but, I barely even used the P&J. ARrrghhh.... what to do.. Maybe I should see it how it fares through winter...

Wow you really did a great job, it's a beautiful look! The feathered wing is really cool!!

P&J might do well in winter.. or it could be the combo of the foundation with your skincare... I dunno..

kimberly said...

I love the make up!!! i think the way how you make up your eyes always going to determine the success in a relation ship or just in a date. The eyes curlers, the blush, the eyeliner will do you feel more comfortable and sexy and because this stimulus your sexual performance will be outstanding. How ever i recommend you to buy viagra if you boy is a little discouraged.

I really like to wear a good curley eyes and a good make up specially when i have an important meeting with my partners in a project called costa rica investment opportunities and is important to look very well.
