Under the Spell Contest Entry

curse my uneven eyelids!

I am a fan of Doe Deere's Lime Crime makeup line and decided to try the current recreate-a-look contest in hopes of scoring some free makeup. [edit: makeup tokki no longer supports Lime Crime.] I don't have any of the eyeshadows or lipsticks she used so I had to use what I already own as best as I could. I should learn how to take better photos though.

eye bags.. huu T^T
the colors looked more blended irl

Here's what I did:

  1. Too Faced Shadow Insurance as primer all over my lids, under my brows and on my lower lash line.
  2. I put tokidoki Eyeshadow in Soya on my lids and patted with an 2-3 more dips of the shadow for more color.
  3. Then I put Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Homegrown on top of the Soya from step #2. 
  4. Next, I lightly outlined my creases with a NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Electric Blue and blended it out with my fingers.
  5. On top of the Electric Blue outline, I blended Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Painkiller into my creases and Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Radium mostly in my outer 'V' areas.
  6. I used Urban Decay Eye Pencil in Electric for my lower lash line then mixed Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Haight and Radium to set the liner and smoke it out a bit.
  7. The inner corners of the eyes are a mix of Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin and Snatch.
  8. I curled my lashes and used Urban Decay Big Fatty Mascara in Electric Blue mostly on the tips of my lashes.
  9. For my cheeks, I lightly dabbed Josie Maran Argan Color Stick in Petal Pink and blended it out with my fingers, then put a little bit of tokidoki Blush in Momobella and Urban Decay Eyeshadow in X on top.
  10. My lips have MUFE Rouge Artist Intense Lipstick in 12 as the base color, with some Urban Decay Eyeshadow in X and NYX Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Chandelier dabbed mostly in the middle of my lips.
    I wish I didn't look so yellow in the bathroom QQ
    and you can barely see the makeup on the rest of my face!
