Addiction EOTD

I realized today that I haven't done an EOTD post in a while. I've been really boring the last few months using only the same eye shadows and blush. I recently purchased some new things from a blog sale, in which there were several Addiction eye shadows. I am so happy to have acquired them and the people doing the blog sale were fair in their pricing and so very helpful and quick. There are still quite a few items available so if you're interested in checking them out, please go here to sgbeauty sales. My main contact person has been Elaine, who I got to know through blogging, twitter and instagram. A super sweet and beautiful person.

On to my EOTD...

Products Used:

UDPP Original Eye Shadow Primer Potion in Original (not pictured)
Addiction Single Eye Shadows in Horizon and Blue Moon
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner in Black

I first prime my eyelids using Urban Decay Primer Potion. It's the best eyelid primer for me. I was looking at the newly released Anti-Aging primer but the SA at Sephora told me that if I'm using a firming eye cream, then I'm getting more benefits from that than I would from the new primer potion and that I should just stick with the original, which I like so much. (Thank you SA for saving me $28.00.)

I then applied Horizon to the inner 2/3rds of my upper eyelids from lash line to just above crease. Blue Moon is applied to the outer 1/3rd of upper eyelids and blending it in towards the middle. Lined my upper eyelid and outer corner of lower lash line using K-Palette. Using Blue Moon, I go over the eyeliner on lower lash line and blend it in towards mid eye. I also applied Blue Moon to the outer "V" and blended it in.

It's a very simple eye look but I was pleased with the results. It's a softer look than I normally wear but I didn't feel like it was too soft on me. In fact, when I walked into the MAC store this afternoon, my regular SA there saw me and he said that he really liked my makeup today. That was definitely an ego booster!

The other Addiction eye shadow that I had purchased through this blog sale was Deep Forest. I had debated about it but I'm so glad that I did because I found out recently, after I purchased it, that it will be a discontinued color. I found this information out from Rouge Deluxe's blog post.

Have a great week everyone!
