Eyeshadow inspiration

[ Edited ]

I mentioned the other day in the palette parade thread that it would be cool if someone started a thread with a picture of a cool eye look and we all tried our hands at it. So CalamityJane (the bully) told me to start it. My immediate thought was "But I wanted someone else to do it!!" Then I decided I was being a whiny little b*tch and should get to it.

 

So without further ado, here's the first Eyeshadow Inspiration!

I had been wanting to try a green/bronze eye look for awhile and thought this one looked fun. Here is my not-very-good attempt at it:

 

 

As always, lighting was a bit of an issue (why won't my blush ever show up?!?), but even though the colors aren't captured perfectly you can still kind of see them.

 

Anyone else want to try? Feel free to substitute colors and change it up (maybe using whatever your palette-of-the-week is?). I love seeing what people here come up with! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

I have never been able to figure out how to do the little spots, and I've seen so many looks online with something like them. How'd you do yours?

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

i've never done it either! i just sort of took a fine tip liquid liner and made two blobs close to each other and then dotted pink shadow (actually it was blush) in the middle. it was a total mess because my liquid liner wasn't behaving - in fact it might be running on low or something. i think the key is to find something with a very fine tip.

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Nice work, ghkim!  Did you use pencil or gel liner for the detailing?

 

I totally understand about the lighting.  I look jaundiced in all of my shots.

i used liquid liner for the detail and actually it kinda started running out while i was doing it so i had to go over it again and again to get any visible pigment. it was quite sloppy actually!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

That green's a stunner on you.  Great job!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Ladies, I just answered the door in a green hooded robe with my eyes still done.  The poor tree guy (working late on storm damage estimates) met Malificent's stepsister.  GAAAAAHHHH!!!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Oh I wish I could have seen his face! Hahahahaha Smiley Very Happy

Red foil lip gloss was the closest thing I had to red glitter shadow.  Well, there was cake glitter but I didn't have the energy to unearth my supplies.

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Wonderful!!

I think that's gorgeous! And very innovative! Lip gloss as a shadow, who would've thought?! Great job!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

I would NOT recommend using lip products on the eyes. Apparently there's something in red pigments that can easily irritate eyes, so if you do plan on wearing red (not just put it on, take a picture, then take it off) then I would recommend getting an eyeshadow instead of using lip products.

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Believe me, I am not trying that again.

Thanks but I would warn against it.  Does not stay where you put it.  Really glad I didn't break out the cake glitter.  Would be sparkling for days. Smiley Happy

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Eyeshadow and cake glitter Oh that makes me smile.
