Melon EOTD

While Irene pelts down rain outside, to keep from being bored out of my skull I thought I'd share this latest EOTD with you all. x3
I mainly wanted to use the fabulous color called Melon from BFTE Cosmetics. (You can see swatches here.) I got this color because I've had a look in my head for weeks, but lacked the right color to actually create it. So with Melon, I tried to do a bright melon eyelid which fades into light gold shimmer, and a baby blue accent underneath. This is the basic concept, but for some reason the look turned out different than I'd pictured. I wasn't in love with it, but it's not horrible lol. I may try recreating it sometime to create a look more like I'd originally pictured. ;)

Products I used:
-NYX JEP in Milk all over lid
-Sephora mini white eyeliner on lower lashline
BFTE pigments in:
-Melon: super bright melon shade on lid
-Chaos: shimmery light orangeish-pink in crease
-Cornflower: baby blue on lower lashline
-Ornamental: pale shimmery gold above crease, inner and outer corner, and under Cornflower
-Guipure: super sparkly bright gold on browbone
-Raspberry: hot pink patted on over Melon
-Loreal Carbon Black felt tip liquid liner pen on upper lashline
-Almay black liquid liner on upper tightline
-UD 24/7 pencil in Zero on waterline
-Shu Uemura lash curler
-Maybelline Colossal mascara in Classic Black
-Red Cherry #600 lashes
-mark. Eyemarker in Java and BFTE Truffle on brow

Even though it's not quite the look I pictured, it's still pretty in it's own way. I failed a bit with the picture-taking though, not sure what happened but I had to stop when my camera battery died. :P

Thanks for reading, hope everyone on the East Coast is staying safe in this storm!
