Colourful look using the 88 matte palette

It's been snowing all day...we have several inches of snow. It's so pretty out. :-)

Eyes (all applied in this order):
Basic Primer (applied all around the eye rubbed in gently with ring finger)
Bright Blue (applied to inner half of lid, with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
Violet (outer half of upper lid applied with MAC 228 by patting/sweeping)
Purple (outer V and crease, applied with MAC 217 by sweeping)
Mint Green (lower inner corner, applied in MAC 266 by sweeping)
Teal (lower lash line applied with 266 by sweeping and applying it on top of the purple with MAC 217)
Black (applied using MAC 266 to upper lash line extending outward)
Eyeko mascara in black

Um...The label is missing so I don't know what it is...

Jane AguaCeuticals Sheer Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 in Fair (applied with fingertips)
Earth-Glo Minerals powder foundation in lightest nude (applied with kabuki brush)


  1. Your eyes look beautiful :)

  2. Very soft and pretty! I'm hoping for a snow day tomorrow ;] really like the look of these mattes, so now I don't know which 88 palette to buy! *_*

  3. Pretty pretty! I love this look.

  4. Absolutely beautiful. I say it again and again but you are just the best at eyeshadow application!

  5. Hi! I wanted to let you know I tagged you!

  6. Beautiful!!! I really like how you worked all those colors together and how they're bright without looking gaudy.

  7. Can you sends some of that snow to Canadaland? We kinda need it in a few days :(

    Do you ever screw up your eyeliner? I don't think it's possible. I think the world would implode first. yup yup :)

  8. Fern,
    Thank you. :-)

    I think you should get both! I do and I like 'em a lot.

    Thank you!

    Aw, thank you sweet woman!

    Awesome! Thank you!

    Thanks. :-) I was trying for a more subtle look but with colours.

    I may be able to arrange that. Let me conjure up some it there yet???
    I do screw up my liner from time to time. Not often but it happens and I think I care more about making things look even. So I'd rather both eyes look evenly weird than have one perfect liner and one not. So if I screw up one eye, I just try to make them look the same. Hee hee. I swear I will do a tutorial one of these days. I just need to practice using my new camera first. And the sound of my voice

  9. Pretty.. I have the palette too but I never would have thought of making a pretty color combo like that from it!

  10. I like this. Very soft and pretty. :D

  11. Ugh this is ridiculously pretty and soft. Plus it's all matte, therefore I automatically love it :D

  12. Oh, and how 'bout sending some snow down here to Aus? :( I would die if we ever got snow

  13. Kim,
    Now you can! All sorts of things you can come up with from 88 colours...

    Thank you. It's what I was going for.:-)

    Thank you! :-) I will try to conjure up some snow for you too! But I'll probably have better luck getting snow to come outta my ass than to show up there! Ha!

  14. So beautiful, reminds me of the colours of candyfloss. x
