Makeupstorming: Avoiding the Problem

11 Apr

The night before the SAT, I was admittedly fairly stressed out. So I turned up the music and played with my makeup for a couple hours. Did it get rid of that sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach? Nooo, but it was fun to avoid the problem for as long as I could.


I wanted to try using combinations of colors I usually try to avoid. First up was green! I tend to not use green shadows because they accentuate redness in your eyes, and I average about 5 hours of sleep a night, sooo you can see where that might go downhill.


And Look #2 using *gasp* pink eyeshadow! That never happens with me, so it qualified for tonight’s little game of use-crap-you-don’t-usually-use.


And because that apparently wasn’t exciting enough, I added some freestyle eyeliner.


Snaps for random swirls! And pink eyeshadow doesn’t look half bad.

Products used:

Look #1:

♦ NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

♦ Sleek Garden of Eden Palette: Flora, Fig, Tree of Life

♦ Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow in Acidberry

♦ Palladio Baked Eyeshadow in Jet Black

♦ Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude

♦ Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara

Look #2:

♦ NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk

♦ Sugarpill Loose Pigments in Decora and Lumi

♦ Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadows in Poison Plum and 2AM

♦ Revlon ColorStay Liquid Eye Pen in Blackest Black

♦ Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Black

♦ Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara

I finally got to use Decora in a look! The green sparkles in it are gorgeous 🙂

What do you think of my method of studying for important tests?

    I love both! And I didn’t know that green brings out the redness; I always find that happens with blue for me. Sometimes I like to do a nude eye with a turquoise line, but it only lasts for about four hours before it looks awful D:

      Ugh, I’ve noticed blue does that to me, too. My way of combating it (because blue liner is my spirit animal) is to separate the blue from the immediate eye with a thin line of black. It works for green and red shadows/liners as well 🙂 You rock that blue liner, girl 😀

        Haha aren’t we all supposed to be doing other things? Anyway, no problem. I always look forward to seeing your new eye looks.
