Look Inspired by Orly Space Cadet

@Scrangie beat me to the punch on this, but I had the same idea when I saw Orly Space Cadet - "I want my eyes to look like that!" Well, I tried anyway. Scrangie's is much better. She has such beautiful eyes. Mine is also a little backwards. I did green on the lid and I should have done purple on the lid, green in the crease...




I also learned what a mess MAC By Candlelight can make if you're taking pictures indoors (it was raining). I look sweaty rather than glowy and I really wasn't sweaty at all! I'm sort of a glittery hot mess in this.

Breakdown

Eyes
  • MAC Paint Pot in Moss Scape - on lid
  • MAC Paint Pot in Nice Vice - in crease
  • MAC Pigment in Golden Olive - over Moss Scape
  • MAC Pigment in Circa Plum- Over Nice Vice
  • MAC Pigment in Mauvement - swept a bit in crease to help blend the plum and the green, also to add a bit of goldish gleam. Also under eye.
  • Fyrinnae Eye Shadow in Changeling - In outer corner.
  • MAC Eye Shadow in Goldbit - Brown highlight.
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in El Dorado - Lower water line.
  • MAC Pearl Glide n Black Line - Upper line. Tried to wing it but I just can't. When will I learn? Never.
  • MAC Plushlash Mascara in Plush Black
Face
  • MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light
  • MAC Blush in Flirt &Tease
  • MAC Beauty Powder in Pearl Blossom
  • MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in By Candlelight - brushed a little too much all over.
Lips
  • MAC Lipstick in Thrills
  • Philosophy Lip Gloss in Pomegranate Bubbly - I know. Strange one to put over Thrills but, hey... strange look.

Maybe I'll try something similar again, but reversed... plum/purple on the lid, green in the crease. Would it work?
