7 Days of Eyeshadow - Part 2

I've been mucking about with makeup/facepaint, and here are a couple of the more outlandish eyeshadow looks I tried. Again, please ignore the lashes, I got overexcited and forgot the mascara:


1. Blue glam/alien/wtf look - This turned out better than I expected. I pretty much just dabbed on blue everywhere and hoped that it'd look ok. Usually blue and I don't play so well together, thanks to my very shallow blue-green veins, which blue clothes tend to bring out... hurray for blush, which helps me avoid the zombie look:


2. Purple/gold - this is the look I tried to recreate for a recent FOTD. I'm a big fan of this colour combo, it seems to work really well with my skin and eyes.


What do you think? 

 Part 1, with less scary looks, is here.

    1. Yeah, frosty blue isn't really for me I guess... maybe smokey blue? I have an awful lot of blues that I should use up!

  2. The purple/gold is gorgeous on you! I might give that a shot myself, although I'm so pale purple usually makes me look deceased, but it's just so regal and pretty!

    1. Maybe try different purples? There are a wide range of purples available, it's so versatile... like green :)

  3. The blue eyeshadow reminds me of Mimi from the Drew Carey Show lol...well, not as insane as hers though lol. I looove the purple and gold combo on you! Although purple and gold usually mean "Lakers colors" and I try to avoid that myself, or Lakers fanatics EVERYWHERE...:/

    1. I actually find it kind of difficult to not look like I've punched myself in the eye with purple, I definitely need a lot of practice! I covered the bruising up with gold in this one ;)
