Look - Inspired by My Shirt, believe it or not

This is NOT my face but the image is relevant, and silly all at once:

This is my shirt which inspired me.

Here's my face:

I don't consider the look very successful, but it was sort of fun to try. It also took about twice as long as many of my looks and and still doesn't look right. Actually, it ended up looking pretty darn close to other stuff I've done - which was not my intent. It also tells me it's going to take more than working with colors I don't normally use (green) to get out of my comfort zone.

By the way, The shirt is Romeo & Juliet Couture that I purchased at Saks Off Fifth a while back when Sumo discovered her amazing Jason Wu.

The Breakdown

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion
  • MAC Goldbit Eye Shadow (LE) - inner corner and brow highlight
  • MAC Playful Eye Shadow (LE) - right smack dab in the middle
  • MAC In Living Pink Eye Shadow (LE) - on top of Playful
  • MAC Moss Scape Paint Pot - outer corner and into the crease
  • MAC Swimming Eye Shadow - outer corner and into the crease
  • MAC Illegal Cargo Eye Shadow (LE) - lower lid
  • MAC Reflects Antique Gold Glitter - all over lid (pick it up at pro stores)
  • MAC Steelpoint Technikohl - upper liner only
  • MAC Plushlash Mascara in Plushblack
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Lightscapade Mineralize Skinfinish (LE)
  • MAC Sassed Up Beauty Powder (LE) - nice sparkle on cheeks.
  • MAC Prep + Prime Lips
  • MAC Violetta Lipstick (pick it up at pro stores)
  • MAC All Woman Lipglass (LE) - suggest using Viva Glam 6 Lipglass as a substitute
I'm actually loving this lip combo. The All Woman pink lipstick toned down the Violetta (which I was hoping would be a lot more purple than it was) and turned it into a nice raspberry color. If I were to do this look again, I'd change the eyes entirely.
