EOTD: Multicolour!

I was wearing the old faithful black and white yesterday, a favourite for Mondays as I'm half in mourning for the end of the weekend, and half excited about the week ahead :-) So I dug out my bhcosmetics 120 palette, and seconds later, found myself wondering how on earth I could have forgotten how much I LOVE multi-coloured eye looks? I couldn't for the life of me remember the last time I did one, so promptly set about to rectify that glaring oversight...


I've had this double layer palette for over 12 months and there are pans I haven't even swatched yet - can't believe I've been so neglectful, so you'll be seeing this big black box featured a lot more often in the months ahead. Sigh...so many colors and only two eyes...


I started with a white base, then added a vivid shimmery aquamarine, moved on with a bold pink, and called it a wrap with a bright blue on the outer corner. Something I love about putting contrasting colors side by side is that a when I blend the join, I often end up with yet another color entirely - in this particular instance you can see that the mix of aqua and pink created a delicate lilac. Now that was a bonus I wasn't expecting - just goes to show that colour truly is alive hey?


As I often do, I applied the hue I wanted to emphasise (aquamarine) underneath the lower lashes to soften the black liner... 


Oh boy, this has gotten me all excited again, so it'll probably be triple hues for me for the rest of the week ha ha!

Take care of you,

  1. I'm still in shock at your generosity (ladies & gentlemen, kats included more than just Mirenesse goodies in my prize pack - elegant pearl earrings and bracelet arrived in my mailbox too!) and I'm now shocked at how amazing this eye look is!

    I'm loving multi-colour too hon, just keep creating them to your heart's content! It's so interesting, the colour choices are spot on. I'm glad you have a blog because if I knew you in real life you'd be a little freaked out at how long I'm found staring in admiration at your eyes. How can one create such art on their eyes?

    I hope you've had a beautiful day :)
