Lunar New Year makeup look

 It's a bit late but here's the Lunar New Year look I promised myself I'd redo after my epic fail 2 years ago! I wanted to do it last year but just never got around so it, so this year I HAD to redeem myself, lol. I think it turned out better this time ;)
Remember, all pics are clickable!
I did this back on Feb 1st, but I think I can remember what I used:

-Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Candlelight
-Halo, inner third of lid (bright yellow-gold with subtle green shimmer)
-Addicted, most of lid (bright metallic rusty pinkish-red)
-Isis, outer corner and lower lashline (dark base with metallic rust-red and bronze shimmer)
-Very Vanilla, to blend edges
-Ornamental, outer corner to inner corner and tearduct and on browbone (pale low-shimmer gold)
-Way Up High, on browbone (matte white with slight gold sheen)
-Queen of Hearts, patted onto outer half of lid (red glitter)
-Darling Girl Cosmetics Glitter Glue (patted lightly onto shadow under glitter)
-Wet n' Wild Mega Liner liquid liner in Black
-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On pencil in Perversion (waterline)
-Sephora Full Action Extreme Effect mascara in 01 Black
-Andrea ModLash #33 Black falsies

-Sephora mini brown eyeliner pencil

-Smashbox Photo Finish Light primer
-Revlon Colorstay for Combination/Oily skin (Ivory/Beige mixed)
-mark. powder

-Darling Girl blushes in Cherry Bomb and Charming Coral
-BFTE's Ornamental as highlighter

-NYX lip pencil in Hot Red
-OCC Lip Tar in Harlot
My messy desk after creating the look; this isn't all the products I used and not everything here was used in this look, but you can see many of the items I used ;)
Elph pic with no flash; sucky color but lifelike texture/dimension.
My lips look like a fish but the eye-makeup looks good; you can see the glitter really well, and also the black smear at the corner of my left eye where my makeup was running due to my eye watering because of something I did.. D;
 A couple of things went wrong with this look, like my eyeliner looking wonky because I'm still not comfortable with using the Mega Liner yet, and my eye watering so badly and my eyeballs looking bloodshot, and the lash glue getting all over the eyeliner because I'm still having trouble applying falsies these days lol. I definitely think it's time for some new ones, and some new lash glue! >.<
Over all though I think it's much better than 2 years ago. :D
Thanks for reading!<3
