It's that time of the week again where we play with the makeup tag from Aqeela's Blog! This week's theme is Rainbow Inspired Eyes. I'm going to make this short and sweet as I have a headache again (we appear to be headache central at The Made Up Maiden headquarters this week).
I used pretty much all the shades from the Beauty UK Soho Palette (best bargain buy ever as it comes in so handy for my makeup art looks), over Nyx jumbo pencil in Milk. Yellow (mixed with a bit of gold to make it pop) in the inner eye corner, followed by orange, pink, indigo, and blue on the outer corner, shaded with a well blended cut crease in purple/black. Finished with blue, green and yellow on the lower lashline to tie it all together, and there you have all 7 shades of the rainbow! I actually only used four eye brushes to do this look; a base shadow brush, blender brush, eyeliner brush and an accent brush!
I'll apologise for the lash application, I was getting very tired and couldn't be bothered putting on the lashes properly, then I got frustrated with the way they were sitting and took them off. It's a shame as the lashes would've really pulled the look together, I will try to use falsies more often in my upcoming looks. I'm also due a brow wax, as you might observe, but I've been trying to restrain myself until my appointment in two days as I'm still struggling to grow them out!
This is where I got annoyed and just decided to take the falsies off. I really should have touched up my eyeliner and mascara after pulling them off...
And happy coincidence, my eyes actually matched my nail polish, because that's how I roll, y'all!
(Actually, no, it's not, I just happened to have those nails on for an upcoming Easter nail art post I'm planning, but I thought it was a funny touch).
Who knew it would be so hard to take photos of your nails next to your eyes?!
I hope you enjoyed that, lovelies. I actually thought the eyes were quite pretty (although certainly not what I call subtle), and would actually have worn them out!
