My First Makeup Post!

Good Morning Lovelies!

Today I am going to share an eye look that I LOVE!
I try to keep my makeup more neutral during the week, and only occasionally add a bit of color.

So Saturdays are my Fun Makeup days!

The look that I am going to be sharing with you today is a look I did that was inspired by the FABULOUS Vintage or Tacky!  She has a YouTube Channel as well as a Blog.  This girl is insanely talented!  I LOVE her looks and frequent her channel for inspiration!  Here is the look she did that Inspired my look below.

First, I used my Coastal Scents 88 Palette.  I happen to have the Ultra shimmer version, but have the matte version on my wish list!

Here are the colors I used:
 
Click to see the numbers I'll reference in a second.
Oddly, the colors look washed out in this photo.  I'll try and get a better pic next time!

I started by applying concealer to my undereye area as well as my entire lid.  I then applied Urban Decay Primer Potion to my entire lid.

Next I used my NYX Jumbo eyeshadow pencil in Milk.  It helps the colors really POP!

Then I applied the yellow(1) to the inner half of my lid.  Then I applied the darker orange(2)  I know it loosk pinky peach in this pic but it's really bright orange.
I used the lighter orange(3) to blend the two in the middle.
Then I used the dark purple(4) in the crease.  This color is weird!  It looks blue, dark dark blue, in the palette, but when you apply it it's actually bright purple!
Next I used a tiny pencil brush and lined the lower lid with the blue(5).

Apply Black liner, I used Coastal Scents Creme Liner, and Mascara and VOILA!



 
 
  
Rob thinks I look like an Anime Character in this pic!

And NO!  I'm not naked!!!!


That's all for today Ladies!

I hope you like my first makeup post!

Have a great day!
