Happy Mardi Gras, beauty lovers!

A bit of New Orleans flare for your Fat Tuesday morning 🙂

Mardi Gras eyes

Mardi Gras eyes

The look:

Started off the eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Eyeshadows used: Urban Decay in Vert and Uzi (the highlighting brow color), L’Oreal H.I.P. Bright Shadow Duo in Flamboyant (purple and shimmery yellow).

Eyeliners: Wet N’ Wild Mega Liner in Turquoise, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On in Honey and Lust. I used all three on the top lash line, and Lust on the bottom. I used the gold color from Bright Shadow Duo on the inside corner of my eye.

Lashes: Smashbox Lash Primer Layer; Maybelline Waterproof Define-A-Lash in Very Black.

Because my eyes are bold, I used a purpley-small gold glitter-flecked Nars blush called Oasis, and dusted ID Bare Escentuals Feather Light Mineral Veil over my face to top the look. My lips have Sephora Gloss Ultra-brilliance #10. You can’t see it, but it’s there 🙂

    I’ve decided I don’t like working with cream shadows 🙁 I bet it did look good in the morning but I bet it creased in the middle of your lid by the end of the day, right?!
    Your eyes are brown, right? I’m going to get you something 🙂 Send me a facebook message with your addy!

    this is fantastic, i wish i could pull it off… i tried something yesterday… brown eye liner on the top lid, with a bit of the pool blue cream shadow above it, spread it mixed with some light brown… and went to work… i wasnt really happy with it by the end of my shift… but at 7am i thought it looked good… 9 hours later it did not look good at all 🙁
