This look is to show you that you can take cheap eye shadows and make them look awesome too. :) you don’t need expensive eye shadows. All you need is a good base and some basic techniques. :) I used NYX jumbo eye pencil in milk as a base and BFTE (beauty from the earth) blackout gel liner, and finally Lo’real Voluminous mascara, with Maybelline One by One on my bottom lashes. :)
I swatched all my silver colors as well…
Madd Style’s All that glitters, then Sugarpill’s Tiara, then 2 Glittersniffer colors, then Beauty from the Earth’s Silver, then Madd Style’s Mr. Roboto… which is currently only $3 on their website!!!! These were swatched over NYX high definition eye shadow base. :)
I did comparison of all my gold pigments :)
The first is Sugarpill’s Goldilux, then Beauty from the Earth’s Autumn, the Madd Style Cosmetics’ Honey Badger, the Mon Ennui’s color in Dalek. :)
Sorry it’s not right side up. >.<
Urban decay primer potion, BFTE’s Honey on my lid, Madd Style Cosmetics’ Down the rabbit hole as a highlight, and as a highlight on my face as well :D, NYX slim pencil in black glitter for my eyeliner, and Sugarpill’s dreamy lashes. :D
For my face I used e.l.f. face primer, e.l.f. concealer, NYX matte but not flat powder foundation. MUD’s, Nars orgasm dupe that I got from Makeup Geek for my blush. And as I said… I highlighted my face with the pigment from Madd Style, Down the Rabbit hole to give my face some shimmer. :)
For my lips I lined them with some grey eyeliner, the buffed it out with a flat brush, applied a red matter lipstick… then used Lime Crime’s carousel gloss in Candy Apple, then applied red glitter on top of that. :)
Makeup Geek on the lid :) Poolside and Mermaid.
Glittersniffer’s Contraband above the crease.
Shimma Shimma by Makeup Geek as a highlight.
Brazen Cosmetics Glitter on the under-eye. :D

Really proud of this look. :)
I started out using Urban Decay’s primer potion.
I used Sugarpill’s Poison Plum all over my lid, and on my upper lid/crease I used Glittersniffer’s purple from the Shock Value Collection. A beautiful purple that is saturated in gold glitter. :)
My liner is Beauty From The Earth’s Indelible Gel Liner in Black Out.
The liner on my lower lid is LA Colors black pencil.
For my brows I used my LA Colors brow pencil.
The lashes are from the new line of lashes at Sugarpill Cosmetics! These lashes have a hint of blue/green/purple to them :) they are called Toxic.
I touched them up with Covergirl’s lash blast mascara.
Hope you like it! :) The first 4 pictures are taken with a flash, 5 and 6 are in artificial light, 7 and 8 are taken in a natural light. Which do you like best? :)
A simple look using Beauty from the Earth Cosmetics. :)
