Contest Look: Earth Tones (Virgo)

Please click to view in full color/detail!
Hey guys! :)
I recently entered another competition on Makeupbee; this one is inspired by Zodiac signs. My birthday is September 10 so I'm a Virgo. I never paid much attention to horoscope type stuff but I think the constellations are really interesting. (If you go by personality traits though, I am a typical Virgo, haha.)
I did a little research for inspiration and discovered that Virgo's element is Earth, our colors are green and brown, and our metal is Quicksilver. I tried to incorporate these things in my look. All the eyeshadows I used are from BFTE Cosmetics; you can see a step-by-step picture tutorial HERE.

If you'd like to know what products I used you can click the link, they're all on Makeupbee.
I had a lot of trouble getting this entry up and the tutorial finished; for one thing their site was having issues with uploading photos for several days. I also don't have use of my laptop anymore, it needs serious repairs and I'm not sure when that will happen. (This is also why I haven't done much blogging lately.)
I didn't have Aperture to edit my photos so if it looks a bit different than my usual, that's why. (Aperture is so amazing I've become dependent on it, lol.) That's also why there's only one photo, I just didn't have any patience left after finishing this one. ;P

Anyway, if you like my look I'd appreciate it if you could go vote for my entry! If you don't have a Makeupbee account you can easily log in through Facebook. To vote, just click the heartshaped "Luv" button at the top left of the look page. I'm in the top 10 right now and I'd love to have a shot at judging!
Thanks so much and I hope you're having a good week! :)

  1. I admire your skill to take on an earth tone theme and have the results anything but boring.

    Apart from that, I really love this liner shape on you

    1. Thanks, I was pretty nervous because I don't usually do colors like this.. I didn't know if I could make it work lol. I also did the liner slightly different than usual, glad you noticed! ;D

    1. Thanks Wendi! I've always felt most comfortable in green eye makeup for some reason :)
