just a second, it's my favourite song they're going to play

Evening, hope you are all well. So what i'm showing you is probably my favourite eye look at the moment. Without realising it I subconciously do the same eye look more often than I should (considering the amount of eyeshadows that often get neglected in my collection, sorry eyeshadows) and it's become one of my favourites to wear on a night out or even just for dinner in the evening.


Products I used:

MAC Shroom Eyeshadow
MAC All That Glitters Eyeshadow
MAC Sumptuous Olive Eyeshadow
MAC Woodwinked Eyeshadow
MAC Amazon Eyes quad (I used the Amazon eyeshadow - the golden highlight)
MAC Devoted Poppy 6 Classic Eyes palette (I used the Fall Deeply shadow - the black)
MAC Mineralize Quad in Oddbits
YSL Touche Eclat
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay Corrupt 24/7 Eyeliner
Lancome Hypnose Mascara

MAC 213 Brush
MAC 217 Brush
MAC 219 Brush
Ruby and Millie angled Brush


First apply Urban Decay Primer Potion as a base to the eyes. Then take the 213 and apply Shroom on the inner third of the lid. Then apply All That Glitters to the middle third and blend softly with Shroom on the inner third. Take Sumptuous Olive and apply to the outer third, and softly into the crease and then blend gently into All That Glitters. Using Woodwinked through the crease with the 219 blend softly on the inner and slightly on the outer crease. Take Amazon and blend to soften out Woodwinked on the outer crease. Use the angled brush to draw a line over your lid on the outer third with the Black from Devoted Poppy and slightly take out in the corner to a point. Blend a little more of the Black over the top to soften the line into Woodwinked. Put Amazon underneath the eyebrow to highlight then blend the gold from Oddbits over the top. Use a tiny amount of Touche Eclat in the very inner corner of your eye to reflect the light.
Line the eyes with Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Corrupt on the lower lash line, and use the Gold from Oddbits over the top to add extra sparkle dimension!
Finish with Lancome Hypnose Mascara primarily on the top lash as opposed to the bottom lash.
 
 




(ew my skin on this flash setting! grey!)

And here are some of my face charts that I did yesterday, not sure how great they are, even after doing a few I still find putting powder on paper much more difficult than on skin! 



What do you think? I realised I forgot to take swatches of all the eyeshadows I used, sorry. If you'd like to see swatches let me know and I'll edit this post with the swatches in! Do you make face charts? For art, or just for yourself? It seems like a good way to keep track of your make up looks - although a couple of my friends looked horrified that i'd used MAC on paper! Let me know your thoughts :)
Lots of love, Z xoxox
