I hope the title doesn't make your eyes cross! >,< Here's a look I did for fun today using some new products, mainly my new Urban Decay Shadow Sticks and some BFTE samples I got from a friend :)
-Urban Decay Shadow Sticks in Juju (light golden brown blended out on lid) and Clash (bright blue on lower lashline)
BFTE shadows in:
-Bat Wing (shimmery bronzey brown on lid)
-Caribbean (bright turquoise, applied over Clash on lower lashline)
-Ornamental (pale gold on browbone and tearduct as highlight)
-Honey (light bronze and gold sparkles patted on middle lid over Bat Wing, and used as highlight over Ornamental)
-Sephora mini white pencil (tearduct)
-BFTE gel liner in Chocolate Mousse (just a touch in upper lashline)
-Cover Girl Lash Perfection mascara in Very Black
-CS 88 Palette, medium brown (on brow)
-Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light
-BFTE mineral foundation in Light Beige

I tried adding some stuff to my waterline but in the end it just looked horrible and made my eye water and turn bloodshot lol. I also skipped eyeliner because I didn't feel like using it and then washing it off, muahaha! You can see a wee bit of me eyelid where the liner would go... it's kinda cute :3
Aaaand my otherwise naked face. We'll pretend my skin doesn't look scary, okay? Okay!
I had some difficulty photographing these colors accurately; in person the lid looked cooler and more taupey, but for some reason the colors look very warm/golden in the pics. Ah well, I love these colors and Honey is now on my wishlist; it's sparkly goodness that's very wearable. ;)

Thanks for reading!<3


  1. Love that last pic with only the eyeball done up! LOL

    1. lol yup! I wouldn't even bother but I think it shows the makeup in a certain way that cropped close-ups can't :)

  2. I love this look. I usually do something like this when I want to be simple

  3. I love the pop of turquoise on the lower lash line :-)

  4. This is so beautiful, Emily! :) The blue really makes your gorgeous brown eyes pop! :D

  5. I love teal for the lower lashline! and it goes real well with the brown too! why not do the other eye and look fab through the day!/Azure

  6. i really love the look! Clash is stunning

  7. Thanks ladies! I'm pretty happy with my shadow sticks so far, I wore this around the house for about 5 hours and the makeup stayed as pretty as when I first applied it. For me that's pretty impressive, especially with loose/mineral pigments and shadows. They would look nice on their own too, if I was pressed for time or traveling without my loose products. :D

  8. Wow your make up looks really stunning! I love the colours! They look great together!
