Eden FOTD

It's been a while since I used Sleek's Garden of Eden palette, but the sun was shining and I felt like doing something more spring-themed.  I patted Illamasqua's pigment in Beguile over the middle of the lid to add a bit of sparkle, but it hasn't really shown up in the pictures.

Nic Cage with glitter FOTD

I'm so glad we have sunshine.  Taking photos is so much easier!  I used one shadow over my whole lid, but two different bases beneath it to get the colour gradient.

Caligraphy FOTD

I've been seriously hating my skin recently.  That crater on my face?  Yeah, that was a black head.  Ewww.  Totally at a loss as to how to fix it though.

I picked up the Calligraphy palette a couple of years ago in the sale, and it's not one that I reach for often.  I think the blue liner makes this look way more interesting.

Green and purple with a splash of glitter tutorial

It's been way too long since I did a tutorial!  This was one of those looks that I started with no idea as to where it was going.  I can't help but think of The Joker when I look at it though...


Products Used

NYX jumbo pencil in Milk
Shiro Cosmetics You Know Nothing (light blue tinged white)
Shiro Cosmetics Angry Cuccos (white with green and red shift)
Shiro Cosmetics I Guess You're Okay (pale grey-purple with a green shift) - This was LE.  If you didn't manage to get it, try Bojutsu Science Adept by Geek Chic Cosmetics
Shiro Cosmetics That'ssss A Nice House (shimmering grass-green)
Shiro Cosmetics We're Up All Night To Get Loki (olive green with gunmetal shimmer) - Another LE shade.  As we're layering, MAC Humid will work.
Shiro Cosmetics I'll Move That For You (blackened amethyst with bright purple sparkle)
Rimmel glam eyes black liquid liner
Collection glam crystals glitter liner in Shake It Up! (purple glitter)
Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Psychedelic Sister (purple)
Lancome Hypnose Star mascara  




1. After priming your eye, apply Milk all over the lid, blending up to the brow bone.

2.  Pat Angry Cuccos on the inner lid.

3.  Apply I Guess You're Okay to the outer half of the lid, blending into Angry Cuccos.

4.  Sweep That'ssss A Nice House into your crease area, taking it up towards the brow bone.

5.  Apply We're Up All Night To Get Loki to crease, blending as you go, but not taking it as high as the previous green shadow.

6.  Pat You Know Nothing under the brow bone, and blend down.

7.  Gently place I'll Move That For You along the outer v, making sure you don't over-blend.  I then tidied up the line with some makeup remover.

8.  Draw a thin black line with black liquid liner on the lid.

9.  Along the lower lash line, apply Shake It Up!.

10.   Apply Psychedelic Sister to the water line.

11.  Add mascara and you're done!
