She Has Brown Eyes.

I was in the mood to play with makeup the other day, procrastinating on my uni stuff - my bad, I know. I came up with this look which might be appropriate for a night out as it is quite dark and intense.
You can kinda see the before and after effect, as I only did my left eye. I'm having a bit of a bad time with my right eye, nothing major but still I can't put makeup on for now.

Guest star: Camaleonte mineral loose eyeshadow by Neve makeup (aka truccominerale.it). It is a beautiful duochrome shade with an heavy metallic finish. The main colour is a reddish chocolate brown with gorgeous silver-green reflects in it. When the light hits it you have an amazing effect to your lid. Perfect for a night date. I placed it all over the lid, using a flat shadow brush, carefully pressing the colour in instead of blend it to avoid fallouts. I used a double-ended eyeshadow brush by Sephora, but somethig like a MAC 139 would work perfectly.

Second colour I applied was nuttie brownie by Sephora, a very unattractive brownish shadow. When you swatch it you are definitely not a fan of it, but it looks very nice if blended in properly and it is a perfect colour to deepen the crease area. Be careful with this though, and apply it very lightly.
To blend the edges and highlight my browbone I used the safe vanilla by MAC.
A thin line of blacktrack fluidline by MAC, a generous coat of Maybelline's one by one mascara and we're done.
