Eye of the Week ~ Through the Looking Glass

Alice in Wonderland

 

I do love blue. And blue and brown are such a classic combination. I couldn’t help but be inspired by Alice in Wonderland, especially the Disney versions, as I set about with this look.

My eyes are so darned hooded, it’s most accurately seen on my closed lid.

That’s Once Upon A Time on my inner lid, Denouement in the middle of my lid, and Epilogue in the outer corner. It’s whimsical and fun, as all good eye looks should be. The world is serious enough already, without us adding to the nonsense!

Eye of the Week ~ Island of the Blue Dolphins

Sometimes a light hand with makeup is not what’s called for. This is actually two blue eyeshadows- Once Upon A Time on the inner 3/4 of my eyelid, Denouement on the outer 1/4. With Slippers on my browbone to open them up, my eyes look bluey blue blue blue.

They’re far more stunning from a distance, as Once Upon A Time has a fabulous shimmer to it. But up close you can see the blending of the two shades better. I feel like I was perhaps too subtle with the blues (resulting in a purely 1980’s look)…next time I’ll rock it out more noticeably.

What eyeshadow colors are you struggling to wear satisfactorily? Is there a color you just won‘t wear at all?
