EOTD: "Tribalistic" with Darling Girl Cosmetics

 Hey y'all! It's been a while since I posted, it was a crazy week and an even crazier weekend, but hopefully things will be more "normal" now.. (in quotes because when is anything TRULY normal? haha.)
Today I have for you a somewhat artistic look using all Darling Girl products (which I purchased myself, fyi). I started with the liner and kept adding things to the look, ending up with this; to me the design looks sort of futuristic-tribal, or Tribal-istic. What do you think?

Check it out:
Products:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper
-DGC Glitter Glue (lower lashline/inner corner)
Darling Girl Cosmetics eyeshadows in:
-On-X (applied with BFTE Mix & Fix) as liner
-Electra (yellow-lime green with gold sheen)
-Patty O' Green (white with green duochrome) inner corner and lid
-Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (eyebrow, crease and browbone)
-Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow in Tako (browbone)
-MAC Blacktrack Fluidline (tightline and waterline)
-Cover Girl Lash Perfection mascara
-Cover Girl clear mascara on brow
-Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light
-mark. Powder Buff in Nude

Taken without flash; it was a bit over-exposed so I had fun editing it more than usual. I like how bright and clear my iris looks.
I feel like a broken record but I feel like this looked so much better in person. My camera, though it takes great pictures and has very accurate color, sadly flattens my eye, especially when used with flash. My eye looks like it has no dimension, which detracts from the look in my opinion. Oh well.. at least the shininess of Patty O' Green showed up some. It's such a gorgeous eyeshadow, as are all the Rainbow Brite shades!♥
I didn't use too many products for this, I wanted to keep it simple. Unfortunately since I added the crease and lid shades after I did the liner, some of the outer wing flaked off while I was blending vigorously. Anyway, aside from that and my weird eye shape which makes me do weirdly-shaped eyeliner sometimes, I like how this turned out. I loved the addition of the green design along my browbone. I'd love to do more looks like this using different colors! I think this would also look awesome using some bright matte shadows and a matte black gel liner. I didn't feel like using falsies or I'd have added some to really make it pop. That part is up to you ;)
Thanks for reading!
