Enchanted


When I do makeup, I usually try to stay within the "very wearable", "I might be able to wear this to work", or "let's go BOLDER" kind of perimeters.  But, I'm deviating today.  This is a bit more theatrical, fantasy, enchanted, and still sweetly delicate.  I hope you like it! :-)



 

Let's talk shop.  I did my full face routine, with foundation, concealer, powder, and brows. I primed my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion, and Nyx Jumbo Pencil in Milk.   Then I started with Sugarpill Goldilux in the inner corner, then moved to Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics shadow in Saturate (THIS COLOR IS SO MAGICAL!!), then on the outer corner I used Sugarpill loose shadow in Weekender.  I found a violet in my Coastal Scents Metal Mania palette to soften edges and BLEND everything up on the crease.  End result, super pretty!
I traced the lower lid with the same colors. Super easy!

Now let's add some drama.



First and foremost, I'm wearing a HUGE pair of purple/black lenses from PinkyParadise.com. They command a lot of attention!  I lined my upper lid with black liner, and lower water line with WHITE liner AND SHADOW, and applied mascara.  I used a random pair of choppy lashes that I ordered from Ebay, and then... Oh yes...
PAPERSELF Small Peacock lashes. These magical beauties need to be treated with respect.  They are fragile, and made of paper. Take this piece of advice from me: Never use latex base adhesives on Paperself lashes. They will dissolve and crumble before your eyes. Use a clear, latex free eyelash glue, and you will have your gorgeous Paperself lashes for many uses!!  (Check MadameMadeline.com or NyxCosmetics.com for latex free adhesives).  After applying the glue, I simply placed them on top of my lashes where I wanted them, and held for 15 seconds. 





Final Touches:  I added some teal rhinestones that are very hard to see in the pictures (sad face). I placed one under my brow, and another under my lower lid. Blush is Nyx Dusty Rose.  Lips you are wondering?  Best question ever.... my favorite Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic Lip Tar in Trollop. Amazing product, amazing color.

Have a great week!!!  I hope you like it!!

xoxo,
Colleen
