I received my order from Pinky Paradise today! I ordered two pairs and got a third for free along with these adorable contact cases! These are the green ones I ordered (I also have grey and black, which I have to try out. Expect later posts about them!)
Here's the size comparison versus my natural eye color and size.
With both of them in. I decided to go with some gyaru-influenced make-up to pair with these awesome lenses.
A pale pink isn't my usual choice, but I think it works well with the color of the lenses and the style I wanted to achieve.
The color is beautiful. Head on, they don't make my eyes look too big, but when I look up, they definitely make me look much more wide eyed. (A little Michelle Bachmann-ey, lol.)
Finished look. :)

I just got my order from MAC of the 'Magenta Madness' loose eye pigment. This is what it looks like applied with no primer and a little wet. Just a dab of moisture to get the color to really pop. I love it, I even turned it into a nice hot pink lip color to go with the eyes. :)
I absolutely love this color. I'll probably do a tutorial with it soon after I get the rest of my products I just recently ordered.

I found inspiration in my deodorant today. It's called Burst, so I just went with it, haha. No tutorial today, just a few pictures. My hair looks a lot more red in pictures. It looks more orange in person.

This is the desired look I'm going to break down step by step for you guys today! Just a note, I started with a specialfx lens but I didn't like it too much in the final outcome so I took it out for the final pictures down at the bottom.
I started with green brows, foundation, powder, and blush. On the lids, I used a cream based light green color as a primer of sorts. There's also a light white cream under the brows, per my usual tactics.
Over the light green cream based shadow I used Sugarpill's Buttercupcake, applying only over the lids. I also applied white shadow over under the brow to make it more noticeable.
Afterward, I took a lime green shadow from CoverGirl and followed the crease of the lid just over the yellow. After blending the two, I took a darker green from Loreal's HIP duo shadows and created a sort of 'wing' on the outside of the lid and crease (down below).
From there, I applied eyeliner (I always use liquid and in the blackest black I can get), some liner on the bottom lids, leaving just a small portion under the eyeball bare. It works for a pretty cool effect, almost making your eyes look a little bigger.

In light of a new hair color, I decided I'd go with something to bring attention to the color red! Here's my red/gold centered look I did for last night's 'rave' at a local bar I work at.
I started with red brows (Sugarpill's Love+ over some red lip liner ), foundation, powder, and blush.
Afterward, I used some light white shimmery cream under the brows above the crease of the lid. I then gave it a swipe of white powder to make it more noticeable.
Following that, I swiped some gold cream shadow from Shiseido over the lids. Usually I use a brush to apply it, but I had to resort to using my finger. Worked just as well. I then swiped some gold pressed powder the cream base.
I pre-lined where the red shadow goes with lip liner to give me something to follow with my brush. I used Sugarpill's Love+ for the 'wings' and blended it a bit with the white.
After all the blending, I took a little eyelash glue on my pinky and spread it over the gold on the lid to keep the glitter in place. It worked awesome (it's just a slight pain to get off. I've still got glitter on my lids!)
Then liner and lashes! It looked really great and lasted all night even in the crowded and overheated bar. :)
And don't forget about the giveaway!
