Basic 5-Minute Eye Makeup

28 Jan

Hey there friends. I’ve done exclusively weird, “artsy” looks for ya’ll lately, so I figured I’d throw something uber normal and a wee bit boring in the mix.

Ok, a lot bit boring. Whatever, it’s my blog and I’ll post boring looks if I wanna! *throws whiny fit*

Ugh, skin, stop being a butt. But there ya go, an all-matte eye using my sadly neglected Lorac Unzipped palette. Man, I love that little guy, but I forget about him in the back of my drawer 😦

Basically, what I look for in a quick eye look is definition. Since I have very flat “Asian” eyes (I am part Japanese, yo), a matte purple-taupe shadow helps give the illusion of some sort of dimension in the eye socket. Brown works, too, but cool tones mimic actual shadows. Sometimes I’ll add liner, but if I’m going for the why-yes-I-did-wake-up-like-this look, PASS.

And if you have smallish eyes like me, shadow smudged under the lower lashline does amazing things.

Then I finished it off with some weirdly sharp brows and a subtle bit of mascara and bam there you go~

Bird-Inspired Makeup Mess

25 Jan

Hey there friends. Today I made a mess.

Throwback to when I used to post massive photos of my eyeballs without collaging them or anything. Bleh. Disgusting. I like the intensity of this one though 🙂

And here’s a fun one where I changed the hue of the photo and suddenly had purple eyes. Rad. But did you know that the mutation that causes purple eyes also causes eyelashes to grow inside the skin of the eye (distichiasis)? I’ll take photo editing over that, thanks.

Sorry if you Googled that and it grossed you out.

Products used:

♦ Sugarpill Eyeshadows in Buttercupcake and Acidberry

♦ Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette: Dragon

♦ Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Zodiac

♦ Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eye Pen

Thoughts? Love to hear em 🙂

I wasn’t quite sure where I was going with this guy, so I combined some of my favorite things (triangles, bright colors, glitter, and colorful eyebrows) into one complete and utter eyeball mess.
