Fo’ reals, it’s physically impossible to take pictures of yourself wearing purple and gold striped eyeshadow without making a cra-zaaay face!
I was feeling adventurous yesterday, so I decided to try another potential Halloween look, this one inspired by this face chart from Urban Decay.
All of the makeup for my lips and eyes is from UD, namely the 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils in Eldorado (from the Super Stash kit) and Ransom, Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Midnight Cowboy, Deluxe Eyeshadows in Frigid and Freakshow, Skyscraper Mascara, 24-7 Glide-On Lip Pencil in Wallflower and Lipstick in Naked.
On my cheeks I’m wearing Benefit Dallas blush…
I think the hardest part of the look (beyond trying to keep a straight face in most of the pics!) was trying to get the striped eye wings to match. I did my entire left eye first, finishing it before starting on the right (rather than working on both eyes concurrently), but next time I try something like this I think I might do a little work on both eyes at the same time, at least framing them in before the details.
Oh! I did manage to sneak in one relatively normal pic. It’s a Halloween miracle!
Hope your Friday has gone swimmingly. Any news to report?
