Look: Aries Angel

A blue smoky winged-out look using Aries shades from the BH Cosmetics Zodiac palette.

I'm back with another Zodiac look, hooray! I decided to use the baked metallic blue and pair it with it's fellow Aries shade, a matte purple-black. (I call it purple-black because when blended out it seemed to have almost a purple tinge to it. I'm not sure it really is a purple-black; obviously in concentration, it just looks black.)

-Urban Decay Venus eyeshadow (tearduct and browbone highlight)
- Brows: 
-Urban Decay Blackjack eyeshadow
-Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipstick in Sugarcane
-NYX Slim Lip Pencil in Pale Pink (applied after lipstick to define edges)

Once again I applied the metallic shadow with my finger and wasn't too meticulous about it. I also didn't use a spec of eyeliner; that's all the matte Aries eyeshadow, even on my waterline!
I unintentionally did my brows bigger than usual, lol. I don't think it's too much, though... what do you think? 
I used a new lipstick, the Bite Amuse Bouche in Sugarcane, a light milky pink. I got it in a mini set for my birthday. Initially I was worried it would be too light on me and I'd never wear it, but after trying it for this look I really like it! I think it's a nice alternative for fair people to use as a nude lip with smokey or dramatic eyes; it has just enough warmth to not look dead on fair skin, but just enough coolness that it works well on my cooler skintone, as opposed to traditional "nude" lipcolors which tend to look too peachy or tan on me. I really loved how it worked with this look; the pink lip picks up the subtle pink cheeks and plays off the blue eyeshadow, making it pop. The smokiness of the eyes keeps the whole look from being too "Barbie". 

I know that some astrology buffs are unhappy with the color choices for each sign; I can't speak to that, I'm just the "messenger", using the palette to create fun looks, hehe. What do you think of this look? Would you wear it? Do you have the Zodiac palette? Let me know!
