Evidence in the Deep End

So, today I'm going to show you all how I did this:

I used my UD 15th Anniversary palette (surprise, surprise) to get this look.  Ya know, the palette cost me $55 (minus 20% because of the friends and family sale) but I'm TOTALLY getting the biggest bang for my buck.  I've been using it every day and am getting such high-quality, versatile looks out of it.  Soooooooooo worth worth it.

Anyways, moving on to technique.  These are the colors that I used:

I begin with a primed eye:

Then I apply Deep End to my lid, blending and fading towards my brow bone to form a gradient:

Next, I apply Evidence to my outer corners and bottom lash line:

After that, I darken the outer corners of my top and bottom lash lines with Blackout:

I use a little more Evidence to blend along my bottom lash line to soften the look:

Using black cream eyeliner, I draw a thin line along my top lash line and the outer corner of my bottom lash line:

For added glitz, I'm going to apply sapphire-blue glitter liner along my top and bottom lash lines as well:

And, to complete the look, I'm going to add some fancy, glittery false lashes:

Whoo whoo, all set!

Fun Fact: my high school colors were blue and orange.  How's about that for school spirit! :D

  6. @Jennifer: Everyone should try wearing blue shadow at least once! :D You don't have to take it over the top as I do...dark blue or teal eyeliner as an accent can be so pretty!
