Saturday EOTD

Hello Everyone!

My life right now is work, work, work. It's exhausting but at the same time, I'm feeling grateful to be able to work.

I decided to perk myself up by doing a good job of eye makeup today. I even wore mascara!

Today is predominantly MAC. I was looking through my eyeshadows a few days ago and pulled out some things that I haven't used in a long time so I decided that I needed to try and use them.

Items used:

MAC Paintpot in Painterly, MAC LE Too Dolly Hello Kitty Eyeshadow Palette, MAC LE Soceress Eyeshadow Palette, Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Bronzer, K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner 24 h, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler, Shiseido The Makeup Mascara Base and Fiberwig Extra Long Mascara.

I first applied Painterly as my eyeshadow base. I then applied from the Too Dolly Palette, Romping, which is the aqua colored shadow over the entire lid to crease line. From the Soceress palette, I applied Altered State, the dark purple color, on outer corner to crease line and blend up towards brow bone. Also blended inward toward inner corner of eye to draw color into Romping. Using Too Dolly, which is the bright pink color, I dot it in the middle of the eyelid. I then added more Altered State into the outer corner of my eye to darken the color there. I then applied Neutral Pink, which is also a MAC LE shadow, from the crease line and blending upwards toward the eyebrow but only on the inner half of my eye. (Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of this eye shadow single. I only remembered that I applied it as I was typing this out.) This helps to give my eyelid area some depth. Next I curled my eyelashes with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler and applied a coat of Shiseido Mascara Base. Lined upper and lower lashlines with K-Palette eyeliner and then applied two coats of Fiberwig mascara to upper lashes. As a finishing touch, I lightly applied Smashbox bronzer to brow bone area as a highlighter.

That's it. I'm glad that I got to use my Too Dolly Palette since I rarely use it. I had trouble trying to figure out how I was going to use Romping and Too Dolly since they are both colors that I don't usually wear. I was quite happy with the end result.

Thank you for the comment. I have used MAC for such a long time and love them. It's only been recently that I have been venturing into starting to use other brands again. I really do like MAC the best.
