Another Book of Shadows III EOTD

Recently I got an email asking me a further opinion on the Book of Shadows III. It made me realize that I really hadn't done much with that palette other than that one EOTD that I did. That EOTD was what I would call a safe one as I basically used the standard colors that I always use. I decided to go out on a limb and use colors that I really don't use.

Products used:

UDPP in Sin
Urban Decay NAKED Palette
Urban Decay Book of Shadows III
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
Canmake Gokubuto and Gokunobi Mascara

I primed my eyelids using Sin. From the NAKED Palette, Sidecar was used on outer half of upper eyelid from creaseline up into brow bone area. Naked was used on inner half of upper eyelid from creaseline up into brow bone area. Buck was applied mid eye area to blend together the two other colors.

 Kush is used on inner 1/3 of eyelid from lashline to creaseline. Money is applied in mid 1/3 of eyelid from lashline to creaseline and blended upward and inward to blend all colors. Loaded is applied on outer 1/3 of eyelid from lashline to creaseline and blended upward and inward. I also used a clean MAC 224 brush to gently blend all of the colors together. Loaded is again applied to outer corners of upper eyelid in "V" shape and also lines the outer half of lower lashline. Kush is used to line inner half of lower lashline. Upper lashline and outer 1/3 of lower lashline is lined with K-Palette eyeliner. Applied gokubuto mascara to volumize and somewhat curl lashes. Gokunobi mascara is applied over that to lengthen lashes.

I liked being adventurous and using colors that I would normally not wear. It doesn't look that dark in the pictures but it was actually darker than it should have been for going to work.

I like the green on you!! I barely wear green lol. Only khaki, mind you. I have 2 other Mac green but never really worn them out.

Thanks Nic Nic! I guess that I never wore green for the same reason that I never wore browns--it was too warm toned for me. I guess that I was using only warm-toned colors and not the cooler-toned colors. Either that or my skin tone has changed.

I remember the greens that you have--wasn't one EOTD sakura inspired and it had green in it? I liked that EOTD!

I love the look - beautiful! I always wear colours that are possibly night time looks. One morning I remember my mother saying to me "I hope you realise you are wearing a night time eye makeup look MISS" and I just heaved huge sigh and said "have a good day- BYE" hehehehe
