Inspired by Ilurvemakeup...

Hi Bellas,

So today I called in sick...my busy schedule has gotten to me. Last night I took a nap to recover and woke up and my throat and glands were soooo swollen. I took the day off and slept in till 1:30pm! So I had some time to recover...and play with makeup!

If you haven't checked out www.asianbeautyblog.com, go now! It's a great resource for beauty especially if you are of Asian descent. The community offers so much support and constructive criticism. It's especially good if you're starting out in makeup b/c the ladies offer step by step tutorials and lots of different looks. One of the members, Ilurvemakeup has been rocking some white eyeliner in her looks and it is HOT!

The technique of layering white eyeliner on top of black eyeliner is actually reminiscent of something I used to do back in the day. Actually I still do it now when I layer black eyeliner on top of bright colored liquidlast liners or fluidlines.

So props go out to Ilurvemakeup. I did a look where I incorporated the whiteliner that made her famous. I didn't want to do anything too complicated...so I basically just used two colors: white and blue eyeshadow and then put a highlight color on top. Took 5 minutes to do!

Here's what I used (All MAC unless otherwise stated):

EYES
-soft ochre paint pot
-gesso e/s
-atlantic blue e/s (pro color)
-naked lunch e/s
-revlon colorstay liquid liner in blackest black
-nyx white eyeliner
-shiseido mascara base
-diorshow mascara

EYEBROWS
-eyebrow pencil in spiked
-cork e/s

FACE
-mineralized skinfinish natural in medium dark
-mineralized skinfinish in warmed

LIPS
-totally it lipglass
-flashmode lustreglass

Now YOU can rock the blue shadows!!! GORGEOUS! Your hair suits you so well, I love it! It's cute and fun! I'm still growing mine out, I want to make my donation very long ^_^

I'm with you, I used to do the white eyeliner a lot during HS... but the girls always said I looked tacky ;_; I'm so glad not everyone thinks Iit looks tacky or ridiculous :)

You did such a more fab job than me girl! :D I need a better white liner, my pencil aren't cutting it anymore. Making the wing at the end with white liner gets difficult so I just leave it as is half the time lol
