Mutiny

While I was reorganizing my stash, I came across my Mutiny pigment and realized that I had only used this once, back when Naughty Nauticals came out. Too little use for such a gorgeous colour! I actually wanted to do something different than the blue/purple combo but I couldn't find the other shadow I was looking for (that's when you realize you have too much stuff :P)... So I did my lid in Mutiny, then cut the crease with black kohl, blended upwards with Carbon, Mulberry, Sushi Flower and Orange Sorbet, and lined my lower lid with Carbon and Sushi Flower. Then I used some white kohl to emphasize the liner wings on the outer lid, and glued on essence falsies with light blue glitter on them. White kohl on the waterline and Lash Blast Mascara were the final touches to this look:

And to show you what he looks like, here's a pic of the little elephant that provided the inspiration for last week' look:



And I probably won't be posting a look for the next two weeks - next weekend is my birthday party, and the following monday I will be flying to Greece for a week's holiday!

Elephant Eyes

You're probably wondering why I called this elephant eyes? Because the inspiration for it came from a little black elephant, painted with streaks of teal and green, with gold glitter and finely painted ornaments that my parents brought back from Croatia as a souvenir some time ago. I have always loved its colours and then I got the idea of transforming the elephant's look into an eye make up. Although I used a black background for this look, I has hoped for it to come out blacker but well, I tried :P... I used MAC Carbon all over my lid, Lime Crime Lime Criminal on the inner lid, MAC Teal pigment on the outer lid and Lime Crime Medusa in the middle. Then I lined with a (nameless) colours from Pure Luxe and added some MAC Glitter in gold on the upper and lower lid, glued on some falsies, added liner on the lower lid and waterline, and finished the look with some mascara:






On another note, I try hard to maintain my posting frequency but lately life gets in the way so much - thanks to all my faithful readers for your patience with me!

Sea Myth

This look is quite simple: I applied MAC Sea Myth on the lid, MAC Fiction in the crease, Lustreleaf above and slightly below Fiction. Then I lined with Barry M. Dazzle Dust in #83 (light turquoise) on the upper and lower lid and glued on some Ardell half lashes (#305). Added white kohl on the waterline, black kohl beneath lower lashes, topped with some mascara and voilà!
