Askmewhats Version: "Under the Sea" Look

As promised, I've created a look as inspired by my Body Shop Nature's Minerals Eye Color. I've always wanted a look using silver! As it is quite challenging for me as my skin tone leans toward Gold rather than silver! Oh well, it's not too late to try!

A teaser photo was up yesterday so here's the full on LOOK!

Diagram Time!!!

1. Using my Smashbox no. 26 e/s brush or any e/s brush available, I pat on PAC Pearly Blue eyeshadow in the inner corner of the eye concentrating on the center

2. Use any blending brush, in my case, I've used Prestige #103 Shadow crease brush and grab a bit of MAC Carbon and lightly swipe through the crease area.

3. Using my MAC 217 or any smaller blending brush, use the The Body Shop Nature's Minerals in Platinum Shimmer and lightly sweep on the crease area to blend in the PAC Pearly Blue eyeshadow and lighten the harsh lines. Also apply it below the lash line.

4. Using the same Prestige #103 blending brush, apply Bourjois Rose Beige or any highlighting eyeshadow to highlight the brow bone area and the inner corner of the eyes.

5. Apply Fashion 21 Stick Eyeshadow/Liner in Lagoon 3/4 area of the waterline.

6. Apply Fashion 21 Stict Eyeshadow/Liner in Pearl on the inner 1/4 corner of the waterline

And the rest of the face?

Use Nars Orgasm on the cheeks

NYX Herades and top with Shawill Gloss


Hoping to make you smile Photo Time!!!

Hubby's going out-of-town (work related) and probably be back 2-3 days after, depending on how fast the project will be over :( :( :( This will be the first time after I got married that I'll be away from my hubby/photographer/King Kong!!! :(
