Pink and Dotss; Inspired Experimentation

Try and ignore my horrible eye brows.

My readers would probably have noticed my recent obsession with make up (If I have any readers?). This is primarily because I’m very desperate to get better but generally because it’s plain fun! Today, after reading Gothically Yours….‘s blog post that included eyeshadow tips, I decided to try a modest amount of dots and to expand out of my comfort zone.

First I applied my base using a round edged eye shadow blending  brush. I applied a dark pink from my eyebrow to the end of the top eyelid. I then took the same round eyeshadow brush and using white, brushed over my brow bone and around the crease, making the edge of the pink rounder and the white mixing with the pink to create a very light pink.

 I then swept across my lower lid in white eyeshadow and also added a tiny line of kohl pencil on my lower lid. 

Next I lined my lid with black no-name liquid eyeliner. I tried my hardest at modest wings but my eyeliner brush is very broad. I don’t mind the wings on this eye though. I put a wing leading on from the main lined lid and then added another coming out from the original wing.

The dots I added were first under my eye but I didn’t like the look of them and soon they ‘mysteriously disappeared’. I added them on my brow bone with liquid eyeliner and was surprised I had improved with my dots. Hehe! I then added mascara on top and bottom lash lines, as usual!

What do you think? I think that the pink somewhat disguises the Gothic details, meaning the dots and wings, but doesn’t take away from the fantasy!

    Love It! And it can be used in so many ways.

    I'm going ot give it a try. But on me it just might look like I messed up on my makeup.

    Simple and nice.

    Some fairies ladys I know just may try this too.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs, Euphoria
