EOTD: Modified Retro

Happy Saturday, everyone! I had planned to do a tutorial over the weekend, but it's just been a flurry of events here in my neck of the woods, so I hope you don't mind me doing a simple posting of today's makeup. Lately, I've been really inspired by some beautiful, old Hollywood glamour looks, so I translated them into a version that would work with my eyes. Voila! My modified-retro eye makeup for today:

Product list:

  • Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
  • NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
  • Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow in Tako
  • Limit and Nooner from Urban Decay's Naked3 palette
  • Maybelline Lasting Drama gel eyeliner
  • Ardell #122 eyelashes
The elements that make this look really stand out are the white shadow and the thin, elegant winged eyeliner. The light contouring under the brow bone with a dusty pink shade as well as the eyelashes add more dimension. I'm very pleased with how this turned out for me, overall. Better than I had expected, as I never thought I could pull off an Asian-version of this look.

Alrighty, well, I hope you all enjoyed today's post! I'm hoping to work on a Valentine's Day tutorial tomorrow (crossing my fingers) which also includes video. Of course, the project will take about a week or so to complete, but I'm aiming to work hard and be optimistic!

Enjoy the weekend, and thanks for reading! <3



  1. This is beautiful! Your crease color is perfect with the other colors and well blended! You should do a step by step tutorial for this look, I'd love to try to recreate this look! So smooth!
