Night with Book of the Dead

I played with Sugarpill and Fyrinnae yesterday evening and came up with one of the best looks I’ve done in a long time. To start out with, I applied Too Faced Shadow Insurance. I then applied Sugarpill Tako lightly from my eyebrows to about halfway down my crease with an ecoTools big blender brush. With an Urban Decay crease brush, I applied Sugarpill Afterparty to my crease lightly, slowly building up the color. I switched to Sugarpill Poison Plum next, applying it with a fiber optic pointed crease brush on top of Afterparty. I used my MAC 224 blender to blend out the crease shades and then applied a bit more of Afterparty, followed by a touch of Poison Plum. Next, I applied Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy to my lid. Once it was tacky, I applied Steampunk to the outer 1/4 of my lid with an ecoTools shade brush. I followed it up with Book of the Dead applied to the inner 3/4 and I applied it from the inside of my eyes outwards, brushing it on top of Steampunk to blend the two with another ecoTools shade brush. I made sure the gold went up to where the crease color started, and then I took the fiber optic pointed crease brush and blended that line.  I decided next to take Buxom Smoky eyes Stick in Brass Knuckles and sort of trace around the outer v and the lower crease. I used the Buxom blending brush that was created for the Smoky eyes sticks to smudge that color upwards and soften the line. I then added a bit more of Afterparty and Poison Plum and blended the crease shades together.

I took an angled eye shadow brush and ran that along the edge of Brass Knuckles, and used that to add Brass Knuckles to my outer lower lash line. I took a bit of Steampunk and applied it on top of Brass Knuckles in the outer lower lash line. For the inner lower lash line and inner v I used MAC Lightscapade. I applied Illamasqua Static to the browbone. I added just a tiny, tiny bit of Sugarpill Bulletproof with the fiber optic pointed crease brush to the outer lower crease. I used L’Oreal’s liquid pencil liner in Carbon Black along the outer 3/4 of the lower water line and then along the outer 2/3 of the upper lash line, extending it out. I used Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Midnight Cowboy along the inner 1/4 of the lower water line. I used UD’s 24/7 liquid liner in Perversion along the upper lash line and winged it out.

I took a lot of pictures.
