Step by step: Are You My Mummy? (emerald green & pink)


I primed my eye using UDPP, and then applied a thin layer of a pink toned base to my lid.


Using a green eyeliner pencil, I drew a line where I wanted to cut my crease

 I applied a medium pink eyeshadow to my lid and a pale pink eyeshadow to my inner corner

 I applied Fyrinnae's Are You My Mummy? to my crease

And Sugarpill's Tako around the green

 I then used a clean blending brush to blend the green and the white

I used the tiniest bit of black eyeshadow to further intensify the cut crease,
 and lined the outer part of my lower lashline with my green eyeliner pencil

I applied some of the green eyeshadow over top of that liner and blended out the line

I lined my upper lashline with a black gel liner, and my waterline with a white eyeliner pencil. 

The last thing I did was to curl my lashes and apply two coats of black mascara. I would have used false lashes as well, but, to be honest, I was too lazy to apply them today ;) 

The finished look!

Playing with colors...

So, I experimented a little with some (cheap) shadows and lashes today ;)

I actually quite like the result. It's not something I'd wear every day, but I'd definitely wear a look like this to a party. Colors are fun... I should wear brights more often!
