I’m so glad that I picked up some MPZ samples. Seriously. I need more. Why do I keep doing this? I keep trying more indies, and I keep loving them.
Anyway, for this look, I used 3 colors. Here’s what I did:
- Put on my normal makeup with blush and contour. Geebus, MDMA is perfect. Remember what I said about having to go with a light hand? Well, I was somewhat right. It can go on a bit much if you aren’t careful, but it nicely blends around, so it’s not such a big deal.
- I put on my white base all over. I’d picked it up for a dance performance a few weeks ago, and decided that it stood up well enough, so I’ve been using that as an eyeshadow base lately. It’s SO much easier than Glitter Glue, although the end look isn’t generally *quite* so sparkly.
- I patted on Violet Bites on about 2/3 of my lid. While doing this, I brought my brush around towards the center to carry the color all the way in.
- I patted on Baker’s Boy on the inner third, trying to get it all over there and a bit messy on my inner corner (that’s how I like it).
- I patted on some more Violet Bites. — Do you notice that I do a lot of patting? Well, I learned that if you try to drag your brush over your eyelid, with a lot of indies, that changes the color. You lose the sparkle and just rub the base color all over your face. And we know that we all do this for the SPARKLE.
- To finish it off, I used Hidden garden on my browbone and blended it in slightly with Violet Bites so that there wasn’t a harsh line. Hidden Garden is basically my skin color, so good luck seeing where that ends and my skin begins. Ha!
- I added lips. I don’t love this nude color on my lips really. It’s a bit orange-nude for me. But, Smashbox is expense, so I am going to wear it, damn it!
