Playing around and tagging!

I was bored today, so I was just playing around with eyeshadow. I decided not to do a full face because I'm letting my face rest from all the stuff I've been putting on it, so all I've had on today was moisturizer.

I had loads of fun playing with e/s! I used my PAC palette and MAC's Bagatelle..as primer and base I used Art Deco eyeshadow base and Elianto Shimmer e/s in Ivory (applied wet). For the highlight I used my Coastal Scents 28 neutral palette. I don't know if you can see it, but the highlight e/s has a pretty green irridescence.

You know, I realized that for me Art Deco works much better than UDPP... I mean it's easier to apply, no drying time, blending is easier, e/s practically has no fallout, lasts all day without creasing and oiling up!

Please ignore the rest of my oily un-made up face (what you can see, anyway). And my brows, omg! So messy, but I do not want to overpluck. 

I got inspired by a picture of the sunset for this. :)

No flash

Mary said...

Your eyes are so pretty and I love the colors you chose! I notice in you 8 Things You Want To Do you mentioned move to the US (among other places). Have you ever been over here?

Catherine said...


And omg I know. I've heard such good things about Art Deco but I can't find it!!! UDPP only lasts ~5 hours on me... every day I have to layer MAC's paint pot on top to get 8 hours of wear with minimal creasing. I guess it works for now, but sometimes I do wish I could find ONE product that'd do it for me, you know?

Sarah said...

Wow this is simply amazing!!!!!!!!!!! I love it!!! I could never pull these colours off, so you are very lucky :) Love your answers and you are not pathetic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dates are overrated lol

rayqueenbee said...

@Ida - Just what I was going for. Thanks!

@MakeupJunkee - OMG thanks so much. :) Ive always sucked at blending.

@iambeautiful20 - I love playing with eyeshadows. :)

@Izumi - I love house too! Thanks, lol. It was pretty in-your-face though because while I was playing around mom came in to ask me something cause she got 'shocked', like she said.

@Sofee - Thanks, girl!

@Mary - Aw thanks...there are lots of things I'd love to change about my eyes though. Heheh. And yes I did say that. I have been to the US (mostly LA and San Diego) once before.

@Catherine - When I have extra cash I'll send you one. :)

@Sarah - Thanks Sarah. I know dates are overrated. But it's kinda sad that I've still never been on one. Lmao.

@Rayqueenbee - Thank you. :)

Cool look! I really like the combo of colours, and have always wondered how to incorporate bright pinks like that!

Thanks for following my blog :)

Kikay MOM said...

you have very beautiful eyes, made even more beautiful w/ the eye makeup. tried doing something similar, ended up both eyes looking different from each other. lol!!
great job!

Chrissy said...

@MizzJ - thanks. :)

@Kikay Mom - all it takes is practice!! And if you look closely, the eyes aren't perfect either. Hehe. I need to practice with making things even.

Fifi said...
