30-Day Makeup Challenge: Day 9

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

This look translated horribly in these pictures! I had actually used a pretty olive colour on the lid, and then instead of the traditional contour colour in the crease, I went with a gold colour with a strong brown base. It looked really unique in real life, and the eyeliner was a jet black. Everything was tied together really well (not to blow my own horn or anything :p), but came out sucky in the pictures. Bleh.

I wanted to post it anyway, just in case you guys have similar eyeshadow colours and want to try this. I promise, it actually looks really good, and not as plain as the pictures make it seem.

I also added a little bit of gold eyeshadow to the lower lashline to smudge out the eyeliner. Argh, I can't believe the camera doesn't pick up on any of the unique features of this makeup! Anywayyyy
