Divine Violet EOTD

I must admit, I really am not the brightest banana in the bunch. Hmm, bright bananas? Anyway since I'm on a make up fast, I doubt I'll be doing much reviews anymore, so I decided maybe I should stick to EOTD, then again, I'm really not that good. *sigh* Stuck.

I saw Naomi having a contest. Whee, that got me excited. Till I saw what colour she wanted the contestants to use. My heart took a nose dive.

Purple.

The one colour that makes my eyes look wonderfully bruised and swollen. You see, yellow skin really don't go with purple. It some how brings out the 'yellowness' in me. But I really wanted to joined it and all week while at work and while driving, I kept wondering how to create and what colour to mix with the purple so I don't look like;
  • a) Barney wanna-be
  • b) Victim of assault or something
So one a too hot Saturday (today actually) hot and bored I decided to do an impromptu testing of the purples. Tested it out carefully on my right eyes with the new technique Elisa been teaching me that for some reason I just can't grasp. 5 minutes later, I moved on to the other eye having already messed up my right eye. Another 5 minutes and I was at a point where I wanted to pull my hair.

I give up!

Having given up, I decided to just go ahead and pile whatever and do whatever just for the heck of it since I'm going to wash everything off anyway. Added the NYX pearl mania power in lilac, the one colour I would usually avoid since it's somewhat violet. EEch on my skin after that added MAC Paint pot in blackground since I don't wanna waste my BB gel liner. Put MAC Typographic on top and it wasn't black enough. So I drew everything with the eyeliner Elyn gave me, Bourjois Crayon eye pencil. Took a step back and hey, it wasn't that bad!


Looking down shot

Slap on Kate foundation on half of my face along with Dodo Palgantong loose powder, MAC Blush of Youth and took the pictures and cross my fingers that this do.

Now what to do with my messed up right eyes? Oh lets just try to make it look even with the left. 7 minutes later, I ended up a *ahem* 'somewhat' similar left eye. Hee hee.


Left to right: Without falsies so it's easier to see the colours, with falsies

Of course, me being me. I had a super strong coffee just before I started everything so by the time I tried putting the lashes on, my hands were shaking very badly. Serves me right! I hadn't had strong coffee for a while now so I didn't expected this. My lashes came up a bit funny thanks to my shaky hands, the lip sticks part was worst, I started dropping things. ARGH!


Overall, look, I finally remembered to wear my lipstick!

But anyway, all's done. Now I'm left wondering if I should even submit something like this to Naomi. *scratch head* I doubt I'll be doing this entire look again... *sigh* I'm stuck again.


Since it was an impromptu testing, I didn't use my usual stuffs much

A little info
I wanted to use as little products as possible mainly because I do realize that there are a lot of people out there (including me) that don't own a lot of make up and don't have like over 10 eyeshadows in one particular shade. I also want to keep the look somewhat easy to duplicate so just about anyone can try this look on their own. I know Naomi requested for a wearable look and I wanted to make this wearable daynight that can also be transcribe (is that the word?) to a night time look easily just as well.


Items used:

Face
Kate Foundation (don't ask me what colour, I can't read Japanese and it's NOT the usual one I use)
Dodo Palgantong loose powder
MAC Paint pot in Otherworldly
MAC Paint pot in blackground
MAC e/s in Typographic
MAC pigment in Vanilla (my fav!)
MAC pigment in Lovely Lily

This is just for a good laugh, look how close my eyes can be!
I'm a natural cross eye!


I was kinda inspired by the dress, it belongs to my sister and it's really very short (just perfect for her) It's just a dress that I absolutely love but can't wear

The EOTD is really nice and no, it makes you prettier. I think lilac purple suits you the best.Plus, the fake eyelashes really brings out the blue contact lens you are wearing. Overall, your EOTD and the beautiful dress is a really excellent look that lured me try it out.
