Eye look: Darling Girl "Tropical Fish"

Today I have a look I actually did a week ago but since I just had one of the most stressful weeks of my life so I haven't gotten to post it yet, lol. Sigh. Anyway, here it is...
I used Darling Girl colors with some accents for fun; I was thinking of a tropical fish in bright colors with colorful spots and such. :)

Products:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-Milani Shadow Eyez pencil in Almond Cream (all over lid as base)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue (on lid)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadows in:
-Teal Me Lies (teal on lid)
-Gilt Trip (gold in crease)
-Ermahgerd! (coral above crease)
-Lucky (white with aqua shift patted on top of glue to make spots)
-Adoration (to blend out edges)
-Wet n Wild creme liner in Black
-Maybelline Color Tattoo in Waves of White (limited edition white with pink to aqua shift as white accents over brow, on browbone, and under eye)
-iridescent lash glue (to make spots with DG Lucky patted over)
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-Urban Decay Naked Basics palette, Crave (darkest brown-black on brow)

I'm frustrated because this looked so much better in person. Somehow the pictures just really don't do it justice... the colors were brighter and shinier and it just looked pretty awesome. I should have used falsies to put it over the edge but I didn't feel like applying them, lol. I love the iridescent glue that came with a pair of Wet n Wild Halloween lashes I bought. Not the best for applying lashes since the stuff can dry iridescent if you glob too much on, but it's pretty fun for doing accents like these spots. They were so glowy in person!

Vampy Fall Leaf Mani

 This is my current mani; I used vampy purples for the base and fun metallic accents in fall colors of red, gold, green, and bronze. I used striping tape on the accent nail to look like a leaf. I love how it turned out :)

 Products:
Wet N' Wild base coat
-Wet N' Wild Mega Last polish in Disturbia (deep almost black purple cream)
-Spoiled polish in Vamp 'n' Vinyl (shimmery plum purple jelly)
-Fresh Paint polish in Sugar Crush (rainbow flaky on all but accent nail)
 -Color Club polish in Wild and Willing (orange/gold/red/green shimmer on accent nail)
 -nail striping tape (used on accent nail for "leaf")
-NYC In a New York Minute quick dry top coat
-Color Club mattifying top coat

This mani was already around 4 days old when I took these pics. I love how it looks with the matte top coat which dulls down the shine so you can really see the metallic flakies and the different tones in Wild and Willing. 
I just got Vamp 'n' Vinyl recently and wanted to use it because it's really pretty; the accents cover up the shimmer a bit but you can see the purpley color in the first pic. All together, I love this combo!

Thanks for reading!♥

-Milani Shadow Eyez eyeshadow pencil in Almond Cream all over lids as base
Darling Girl shadows in:
-Taystee Girl* on lid
-Hidden Garden to blend out all edges

I can't remember if I used glitter glue on my lids or not.. but even if I didn't, the shift is still quite visible. Some angles the shadow looks like a lilac/periwinkle, but move slightly and it looks pink. So pretty :)

Thanks for reading♥

I have a friend who was a tomboy growing up but wants to wear makeup for special occasions and such, so she asked me to take her makeup shopping and recommend some products. I wore this look makeup shopping with her and my 2 sisters, and then I gave her a makeup crash course. If you're curious what products I had her buy, Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette was on the list, as well as a Wet N' Wild blush (Heather Silk), Maybelline Color Tattoo (Soft Brown I think it's called, from their Leather collection), and a sample size of Laura Gellar's mascara from Ulta which I've tried and is quite nice. We also got her a bunch of e.l.f brushes and a Real Techniques brush, the pink retractable kabuki one. Plus a ton of other stuff haha ;) It was a fun day!

Bonus pic!
me and baby sis♥
