Phyrra’s Cheshire Cat

Kristen of Aromaleigh suggested that I do a Cheshire Cat look, since I love the Cheshire cat so much.
I tend to love a deep purple with fuschia for the Cheshire Cat:

If you’re really interested, you can see my handmade cheshire cat costume here and another one I wore here. I really am in love with the cheshire cat. :P

I recalled the cute Cheshire Cat that XSparkage did here, so this was sort of influenced by that, as well.

I absolutely LOVE how my eyes turned out :) I sooo need to get a full size of BlueOrchid. It’s got a great texture. And I have no idea how I overlooked BoilingPoint. I’d used it before but didn’t like it, and now I’m just in love with it. Aromaleigh’s Rocks! colors are so gorgeous!

Shade Descriptions:
Sylph – brilliant sparkling jewels in a white plush matte base
BlueOrchid – deep dusky purple orchid midnight blue. smooth matte. blacklight reactive.
BoilingPoint – Deep magenta purple with tiny opalescent pink sparkles.
Funkytown – cool intense purple blue. mostly matte with slight shimmer. rich and regal. blacklight reactive.
Fanclub – Perfect high lustre pink with opalescent blue violet sheen.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Aromaleigh Sylph – all over eye area & again later right under eyebrows
Aromaleigh Rocks! BlueOrchid – lid, into crease

Aromaleigh Rocks! Funkytown – on top of BlueOrchid
Aromaleigh Rocks! Fanclub – applied with fiber optic brush along seam of Sylph & BoilingPoint and BoilingPoint & Funkytown

Aromaleigh Lip Balm in Minty Cocoa Chip
Too Faced Borderline Lipliner in Clear
Urban Decay Lipstick in Jilted – applied with lip brush
MAC Dazzleglass in Funtabulous

And I couldn’t resist this cute picture of Phaedra.

I may have to make this my go-to purple look because of how awesome BlueOrchid & FunkyTown look with BoilingPoint. Applying Sylph all over my eyes really made it easier to apply and blend colors, which was nice. And using Fanclub just at the seams worked out wonderfully.

I hope you like this look as much as I do!

      I love those colors on you, you wear pinks so much better than I do. And that strong cat-eye liner is excellent.

      Hi VampiressDoll,
      Aww thanks ;)
      Yeah, Phaedra is stable right now, which is really good.

      Hi Blix,
      Yay thanks!
      Yes I played the PC game and I can't wait for the Tim Burton movie.

      Hi Ash,
      Thank you!
      I wasn't into poodles until I researched the breed and learned more about them. We decided to get a poodle because of Ray and Dave's severe pet allergies. Poodles are hypoallergenic, and they don't shed, so that makes them pretty awesome, but their personalities make them amazing to me! I can't believe I ever used to wonder why people would have them as pets!

      Hi Krista,
      Yay thank you!

      Love that liner!

      Hi Moogle!
      This is my favorite way to do a 'cat' eye :)

    • http://www.blogger.com/profile/14895147130528261296 Jessica

      This looks great! All the colors go so well together, I dont quite get all the instructions to make this look but damn it looks good!

      Hi Jessica,
      Let me know what you need me to explain and I'll be happy to go into more detail :)

      I love the Cheshire Cat too, and love this eye look, especially the black liner extending into the corners.

      So glad to see Phaedra looking better. I hope she packs on a few pounds soon. You should send her picture into the Cute Overload blog. Everyone needs to appreciate that little lamb face of hers!

      How I wish my dog didn't shed. When we first got him, the rescue lady said he didn't shed much and it did appear to be the case, but little did we know we were in for it. He sheds *sheets* of little needle-like hairs, especially when the seasons change. For a clean freak, it's a nightmare, but his cuteness is worth it.

      Woo! Gorgeous! Boilingpoint looks hot with blueorchid and funkytown. And your skin is flawless! So glad that Phaedra's stable. She is a doll. :)

      Ooh I really like BlueOrchid…gotta see if I have that one. (Is it terrible that I don't know what colors I have anymore?)

      Love the liner!

      I love the look! You really captured the pinks and purples of the cheshire cat well. Beautiful! And I can't wait for the Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland, either. :)

      Lots of huggles and love for Phaedra. I <3 this look from the colors to the cat eye liner. The pick for blush and lip combi is perfect.

      The Cheshire Cat is always awesome! I really like this look, I think it turned out really well! I always like it when you line the inner corner of the eye like that.:)
