Askmewhats Version: The "Children's Party" Look

First of all, I want to thank everyone who greeted Keith a happy happy birthday! I am really touched how blogging could make someone feel like I have such a HUGE family out there! BIG HUGS to everyone and thanks! I felt it was my birthday! LOL

Now now, where do I start? ooohhh here we go......

When I posted my winnings from Toma, some of you requested for me to do a look with the Jesse's Girl Shimmering Pearls Eye Dusts and Swatches as well. As promised, I'll do both in one post! A look using ONLY Jesse's Girl Pearl Dusts (I tried to) and random swatches cause a lot of colors are quite similar so you'll get the drift :)

I always think of an inspiration before I do any eye make up. Anyways, hubby was out at work so I looked at all the colors and I can't help but smile coz I look like a kid testing on bright colors and getting my hands dirty. That's when the thought of a "Children's Party" look came in. (NOTE: yes, hubby was out, so I took all the shots myself, ain't bad huh?)

Here are 3 Pearl Dusts I've used for this look!

1. Iridescent pearl
2. Shimmery Blue with Gold flecks

3. Sparkly pink

1. Using a blending brush, apply Iridescent Pearl below the brows to create "highlighting" effect. Also put the same color on the inner corner of the eye for an "awake" look.

2. Using a medium sized e/s brush, I blended the Shimmery blue eyeshadow all over the lids.

3. Using a smaller e/s brush, I gently pat on Sparkly Pink dust on the lid.

4. I've used a matte brown mineral e/s from Luminaire to blend the blue and the pink together using wiper motion.

And here's the final look
Of course if you want it more vibrant, you will need to apply a matte colored eyeshadow as base before you pat on the shimmery dusts.
I prefer to have it subtle.

Now pull up your hair, do a side ponytail and be a KID at heart!
(oh yeah, to those who want to know what kind of dangling earrings I wear, the earrings I wore on this picture is the MAXIMUM length, I can't go longer, not used to it!) LOL
