I took a pic of yesterday's eyeshadow look with my cell phone so I kind of have that eyeball-too-close-to-the-camera look going on, but you can still kind of tell what the shadow looked like.  I decided to mix UD's Glide-On Shadow Pencil in Morphine which I used all over my lid up to start of brow bone with a minty green (MUFE Eyeshadow in Chartreuse Satiny 57) and a bright green shadow (UD Deluxe Eyeshadow in Graffiti).  I put a neutral ivory shadow (Sephora Brand Shadow in Universal Beige) on my brow bone and lined my eyes with the green shadow on the bottom and with a UD 24/7 Glide On Eyeliner in purple (Ransom) on the top.  The colors actually didn't look bad together, but they were definitely bright, ha ha.  You can't really see how bright the colors are in the photo, but trust me, it didn't go unnoticed, ha ha.  By the way, please overlook the strays around my eyebrows which I hadn't had time to pluck. LOL

@Tenngal: Love your e/s. I love purple and green together, they're pretty flattering for my dark brown eyes!!

 

 

I haven't had the chance to do the challenge yet, for a couple of reasons (like I just received my Naked palette, so I had to try this before doing this challenge!!). But I'm a big fan of colorful make-up. My favorite combos are green and pink, navy blue and peach and I mix purple with everything!! (But if I had to pick, I think it would be yellow and purple!). I don't have a good camera, but I'll try to take a decent one and post it here tomorrow!!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@natural beauty: GREAT look! I never think to mix the colors side by side. I'm always going up and down. And on that note, here is the long promised pic! It's Red sparks ( which is really a light pink shimmery mica flake) on top and some unidentified ciel blue that I pressed myself from loose pigments. Oh, and ransom liner by UD. :smileyhappy:

I'm the total opposite: I always mix side by side and not up and down!! But it's something I gotta try! Looking at your pics, you always have gorgeous e/s, so I must try it your way, hehehe!:smileywink:

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  Yea--the long-awaited photo has arrived and it looks great!!!  Your eyeshadow combo is fantastic!  I'm going to have to try applying my shadow up and down, because like ohhenri, I always go side to side. 
:smileyhappy:

I'll try to take another photo before this week's challenge is over.  Hope everybody keeps the photos coming cause I love to see everyone's different looks!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

What a difficult challenge for me this week! I'm not really good with eyeliners (I've tried pencil, liquid and gel!!). I always do one eye pretty good, than the second one never looks the same as the 1st one!!. So, I usually just line my upper waterline instead and it kinda do the trick otherwise, my make-up is ruined!!!! (and since I'm on tight schedule in the morning, I don't have the time to do it again, so I just skip this part!).

 

But, I watched a lot of videos this morning on youtube to help me...As they say, practice makes perfect, so we will see!!

 

(And I tried to take a picture of my 2 colors e/s and I'm a pretty bad photographer, or my camera isn't really good...b/c all of the pictures are blurry :smileysad:

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Hi gals! Ok. Confession time: TOTALLY intimidated by the double wing liner look!!! I don't even OWN liquid eyeliner because it always looks like a demented two year old applied it when I try! Can I pull of this look with gel/cream eyeliner???

*looks about nervously*

@mermadelove  of course you can cuse any type of liner you like you just have to have two wings. its funny because im terrible at gel/cream liners and i prefer liquid. haha:smileyhappy:

mermadelove

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Hmmmmm, maybe I'll try it with two different colors, so it's not so obvious if all four lines aren't perfect!!!!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

This is too funny.  I just bought a new liquid liner to try out a few days ago (Hourglass Script Precision).  We'll see if it is as precise as some reviewers have claimed it to be.  Excited!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

Ok. As promised, I did the double wing with two different colors! The black is UD 24/7eye  liner in Perversion and the other is UD  24/7 Shadow Pencil in Clash. I also used Lise Watier glitter liner in Midnight Star

 

But this is what it looks like close up:

And this is a picture of the completed look:

As usual, my crappy camera doesn't do it justice, but at least you can see that I actually did it in the smaller pic!!!

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  That is gorgeous.  I am inspired to do a two colored double wing sometime this week or next. 

 

Today, I did a single color but I really like the way it turned out.  The eyeliner I used did a pretty good job but we'll see how long it lasts (I hope it doesn't dry out too fast or the edge goes bad).

Re: New CHALLENGE OF THE WEEK THREAD

@mermadelove:  You're double-wing eyeliner makeup looks like a pro job!  It's absolutely beautiful! 

I haven't done a wing eyeliner look very many times because I usually have on so many eyeshadow colors, etc., and, therefore, haven't had much practice at it, but I'm going to give it a try.  I may have to do a single wing until I get more flying experience under my belt before I try the double-wing trick, ha ha.

:smileyhappy:

ohhenri

You have the bad hair day, now there's bad eyeliner day!!!!!!!

I totally flunk this week challenge. I did it 3 times, only to end up taking the wings away!!! I'm bad, really bad with eyeliners!! I only started to wear some this year ( I used to just put some on my waterline). I'm making progress with the basic of eyeliner, but I'm still far from the wings!! Not once this week were the 2 eyes similar... And none of them were decent :'(

 

I just hope to do better next week :smileywink: Have a great week-end! ( I won't wear any make-up this week-end, I'm going sailing/horse back riding!!!)

Re: You have the bad hair day, now there's bad eyeliner day!!!!!!!

OK, I attemped to do the double-winged eyeliner--and I DO mean attemped, ha ha.  I am going to post a picture even though it is bad, bad, bad.  I should probably post it under the "Beauty Disasters" thread, but here goes...
DoubleWingedEyeliner.jpg
I got the wings way too far apart and not even at all, ha ha.  But I did want to let ya'll know that I did try the challenge.  If I have more time, I may try it again, but I've just been in too big a hurry all week.  I was in a big hurry when I did the liner job in the photo.  It was funny actually.  I was putting on my makeup and thought "gosh I need to try the double-wing eyeliner" so I ran to the computer, pulled up YouTube really quick, stood there and watched half of a video tutorial and ran back to apply the double wings.  I never should have tried it when I was in such a hurry, ha ha.

I hope you all get a good laugh out of it anyway. :smileyhappy:

Re: You have the bad hair day, now there's bad eyeliner day!!!!!!!

tenngal, WHAT are you talking about?!?!? As usual, your makeup looks GREAT! You have really nice eyes and short of putting on false eyelashes sideways, I think anything you did to them would look great! :smileyvery-happy:
