EOTD: Aqua/Turquoise/Purple...

Couldn't resist this combo - three of my all time fave colours, all in the one look :-) 

In case you're wondering, multicoloured eyes are actually very easy to create - the only difficulty I ever have is in choosing which shades to combine, simply because the possibilities are endless. Even that gets easier the more often you give it a shot, but knowing what's in your kit is a big plus. Because I use my shadows just about every day, I can remember most of what I have, how well they apply (or not so well), and their intensity - this last component is a major one because the whole thing can turn out less than satisfactory if you use one shadow that overpowers the others.

Another factor is the degree of shimmer each one has - again, if one of them is super duper sparkly, you have to be careful where you position it so that it doesn't throw everything off-balance. Similarly, putting a matte directly alongside a shimmer can look a little whacky, unless you do them in layers working towards the back of the lid (patting mattes into the crease will just about always work out fine).


So here's the list of ingredients, somewhat longer than usual because of the mix of colours:

bhcosmetics liquid liner felt pen to tightline the upper lid
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Too Cool (white frost) as a base all over the lid
Starting with the inner corner...
essence 3D Irresistible Mermaid Kiss (aquamarine)
Urban Decay Peace (turquoise)
essence 3D Irrestible Blue Sky with a dab of UD Fishnet over the top
W7 Purple
Maybelline Master Precise Liquid Liner on the lower lashline smudged with W7 purple
essence White Kajal on the waterline
MUA matte beige on the hood
MNY The Falsies waterproof mascara

I blended all the joins between the colours with a soft brush - it doesn't take anything more than a gentle pressure to soften the edges so that the hues flow together. And blending works best when you apply the shadows dry :-)

Do you have a favourite colour combo? What's the wildest mix of colours you've ever tried?

Take care of you,
