I made hanami dango last year & took pictures but was on my old computer that is no longer alive
I decided to do an EOTD based on the colors synonomous with hanami.
Coffret D'or Powder Foundation
UD Eyeshadow--Naked. Loaded, Kush
MAC Eyeshadows--Motif, Swish, Sushi Flower
Kose Visee Blossom Eyes BR-5--Off White Shadow
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner (forgot to include in picture)
Koji Eyelash Curler
Shiseido Mascara Base (forgot to include in picture)
FairyDrops Scandal Queen Mascara
Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
I don't think that I've ever mentioned why I use a powder foundation in my EOTD. As you know, I use Mezaik Double Eyelid Stretch Fiber and you can't use anything with oil in it because it will affect the wearability of the Mezaik. I use a powder foundation only on my eyelids since I can't use a liquid or cream foundation.
I used Naked very, very lightly from the UD Naked palette from the inner tips of my eyebrows and sweeping it down to the sides of my nose to help create the illusion of a bridge. As a typical asian, I don't have the nice nose bridge that I wish I could have. After applying UDPP Greed over entire eyelid, from lashline to eyebrow and on lower lashline, I apply as a base from crease to eyebrow MAC Motif. I had learned a while ago that an orange color product helps to conceal dark areas and I'm finding that sometimes my eyesocket area is looking sunken in. I like to apply Motif to help counteract that slightly darkened area that is sunken in. Over Motif I applied the off white shadow from the Kose Visee palette. MAC Swish over entire eyelid from lashline to just barely above crease line. I also use it on entire lower lashline. MAC Sushi Flower is on outer 1/4 of upper eyelid from lashline to above crease and swept upward and outward towards eyebrows. I don't like to use Sushi Flower over my entire eyelid because as most can find with pink colors, it can make you look like your eyelid is irritated. Swish doesn't happen to do that to me so I think that lighter pinks are okay but the darker the pink, the more red pigment is used, thus creating that irritated eyelid look. (Just my thoughts anyway.) Kush from UD Book of Shadows III palette is applied to the inner corners of upper and lower eyelid. Loaded from UD Book of Shadows III, is a deep emerald color and I apply that to the outer corners of the upper eyelid and along the bottom 1/4 - 1/3 of lower lashline. Line entire upper lashline and 1/4 - 1/3 of lower lashline with K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner. Curl my lashes with Koji eyelash curler and apply Shiseido Mascara Base. Go over the areas that I applied Loaded with Kush to bring out the green color more. Apply FairyDrops Scandal Queen mascara to upper lashes and Clinique Bottom Lash mascara to bottom lashes.
For this EOTD, I didn't do much blending as I wanted the green color to stand out. Since I usually wear darker eyeshadow colors, I needed to have my eyelashes stand out so that my eyes didn't look washed out. This is why I curled and used a mascara base to help keep my eyelash very curled. I don't normally wear false eyelashes so this was my option. For everyday wear, I either do not wear mascara or just apply mascara without curling my eyelashes.
I finished off my look with girly pink cheeks and lips.
Sorry, only cheek and no lips shown here
A very simple EOTD. I wish that I could go hanami in Japan. I think that sakura might be a little late this year since it's been snowing yet--in Tokyo too!
