Velvet, Silk and Lace

I was thinking of a luxe velvet bedspread and silk and lace clothing. The veluxe eye shadow, Velvet moss, is a velvety color. It’s a very rich, jewel tone green. The silk is represented by the veluxe pearl Jealousy Wakes, which is an emerald green with a teal sheen. I always think of silk as having a sheen. Midnight Cowgirl made me think of see-through lace, since it’s a sheer golden beige with gold micro glitter. Ahem, yeah I like this look. I probably should have darkened the outer corner of the lid a bit more, and maybe brought Velvet Moss up and in more towards my nose. You can see just how hooded my eyes are in a few of these shots. You could also see that in my Double Cupcakes outfit of the day post.

I do have a few more looks for you, but I’ve been short on time, so I’m behind on posting them. This is today’s look.

        I like falsies but I don’t often wear them. I may try to do some glittery looks :)

      Love this look! I may have to pull out my Jealousy Wakes and start playing with it again.

      Love it! I have hooded eyes also & am mostly inept at cosmetics, so can never get eyeshadow to look right. Do you have any tutorials you’d reccomend?
