Post in Everything Eyes

Eyeshadow inspiration

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

Sha'zaam!!  I am in Heart with that red/black combo!

And why can't I be this talented & bold?!?  (Oh yeah... 'cause I'd look like a zombie w/that color combo! Smiley Sad)

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

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

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

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

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

Haha, I wouldn't be able to pull any red off, much less lip gloss! ;-)

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Eyeshadow and cake glitter Oh that makes me smile. 

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.

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Wonderful!!

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

Hahahaahaha 

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

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

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

He was very apologetic for disturbing me so late. Smiley Tongue

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Hi!  I only had an olive green (from the Kat Von D Ludwig palette) so thats what I used:

 

 

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

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

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

My turn! Go play!!

 

not me btw. Smiley Happy i cant take credit 

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Wow I think yours looks even nicer!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

eeerrrrrr. no no no mine isnt up yet. i am not that awesome./ although our eyes are freakishly similar. haha i didnt notice that till you said that! 

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Hahahaha oh I thought the bottom one was you. I was really impressed.

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

although it will be fun to see how close i can get to it!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

here is an attempt. i promise you my face is not actually this orange in real life, and the shadow looked a lot pinker in real life, but i think my bathroom lighting gives off an orange glow which is kind of ruining the vividness of this look. anyway this is my first attempt at posting an eye look on BT, so here goes nothing!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

Way To Go ghkim!!!  Uhm... when you have a little time in the next 5 minutes, could you come do mine!?  Smiley Very Happy

Gorgeousness to the BT degree!!

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

awwww, thanks!!

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.

Re: Eyeshadow inspiration

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!
