In the previous post, I did a FOTD using the NARS Hanamichi palette. I wasn't quite pleased with how the eye makeup came out and I did mention a couple of ideas that I had on how to change it up a bit. I decided to try it out again today using my own suggestions and I am much more pleased with the way the look came out.
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Eden
NARS Hanamichi Palette
Urban Decay Half Baked
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
Canmake Agebuto Mascara
I started the EOTD off the same way using the 3 colors from Hanamichi and MAC Orb. I then went over the gold color with Half Baked, which helped to lighten and brighten the inner eyelid area. I also used the gold color to soften the harsh lines of the black color and also added and blended it in the crease contour area and above on just the outer half of my eye. I lined my upper lash line and outer corner of the lower lash line with K-Palette. Using the black shadow I lightly went over the eyeliner on the lower lash line and then using the gold I applied it to the middle of eye of the lower lash line. I then went over the gold with the off-white highlighter color. I applied Agebuto mascara to my eyelashes that I curled.
The rest of my face was done the same way, with me using the red color as my blush. I also used the off-white color to highlight the upper cheekbones. NARS Mitzi was used on my lips again.
I think that by using Half Baked, which is a brighter gold color, it did help to make the inner eye area look--well, brighter. There was some pop to it, whereas using the gold from Hanamichi didn't seem to do much for me. I also let the red color show up more prominently, as well as the black. Overall it was a darker eye look from the previous post but I felt that it gave my eyes a little more definition, which I liked much better.
