Look: Classy Illusion

 Here is one of two looks I did over the weekend, just for fun. I wanted to use some specific colors from my (huge) BFTE Cosmetics stash because they are such gorgeous colors and I thought they would look pretty together. I'm terrible at using multiple lid colors but I did my best, lol. Please keep scrolling for more :)
-About Face Velvet Gel Primer from Darling Girl Cosmetics
-Wet N Wild Coverall Foundation and Powder in lightest shades
-Koalification* blush from Darling Girl Cosmetics (contour)
-Cameo Glo blush from mark. (Avon)
-Venus eyeshadow from Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette (highlight)

-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper* primer (trying to use up)
BFTE Cosmetics eyeshadows in:
-Classy* (pressed; sparkly wine shade on inner lids)
-Illusion* (pressed; shimmering teal green on middle lids)
-Spellbound* (pressed; shimmering royal blue on outer corners)
-Secret Garden* (pressed; shimmering antique green/gold on inner corners)
-W.O.S from Naked Basics to blend out edges
-Milani pressed eyeshadow in Pitch Black (crease)
-theBalm Meete Matte palette Matte Patel (taupe gray to blend out black)
-Naked2 from Naked Basics (light warm taupe to blend out edges)
-Venus from Naked Basics (browbone and tearduct highlight)
 -Wet N Wild MegaEyes Creme Liner in black
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara
-Crave from Naked Basics (darkest brown/black on brows)

-Maybelline Color Elixir gloss in Rose Redefined*

To my frustration, the above pics were all taken before I realized I'd forgotten to line my waterline. :( This often happens; as my eyes are extremely sensitive, I usually save waterlining for the very last step, since my eyes will water uncontrollably after that. Once again I just plain forgot... I was in a hurry to photograph before I lost the light.
The below pics were taken after waterlining with Urban Decay Perversion pencil; I must say I like it so much more with the waterline... it looks more complete:

 I had intended to do a bold lip as well but ran out of time so I slapped on this gloss I got in my Target Beauty Box. Sort of a MLBB rose shade, pretty nice. :)

It felt good to do makeup again, even though it hurts my fibromyalgia (especially the taking pictures part, blah) but the end result is worth some pain, right?
Thanks so much for reading and stay tuned for another look coming soon, maybe later this week!
