EOTD: Under the Sea

With this post, I will be done with all my Fyrinnae Halloween 2011 looks! Woot! I have enjoyed using all the colors so much!! And I will be using them more in future looks as well. But these posts were specifically designed to showcase all the shades so you can see how they look like in action. The last shade I will be using is 'Wake Not the Dead', which is a glittery purple. Go to my review for this collection if you haven't seen that yet ^_^ I used this shade in conjunction with my YSL Midnight Garden palette, and it ended up looking like some fun aquatic, Little Mermaid inspired look, IMO. This was super nostalgic because The Litther Mermaid was one of my favorite Disney movies when I was young, along with Aladdin and Sleeping Beauty. Anyways, here is my Under the Sea Look~

Products Used
-Illamasqua 'Bedaub' Cream Pigment (as a base for Wake Not the Dead, since it has glitter particles)
-Fyrinnae 'Wake Not the Dead'
-YSL Ombres 5 Lumieres #11 Midnight Garden
-Wet N Wild white pencil eyeliner
-Yanqina mascara

How to Achieve this Look
1.I suggest you use a base if you are going to use 'Wake Not the Dead' since you want something that the glitter in the shadow will stick to. I used Bedaub cream pigment because it wasn't getting enough love. The color didn't show up at all. Apply 'Wake Not the Dead' onto the lid and blend it up to the crease.
2.Apply a dark teal (I used the one from the YSL palette) and apply it on the outer V and above the crease. Blend it into 'Wake Not the Dead'.
3.Use a light lilac (I used the one from the YSL palette) and apply it on the inner part of the crease and above where the teal was applied. This will help to blend the teal and to made the look a little less dark.
4.Next I applied the dark teal on the lower lash liner and the shimmery mint (both from the YSL palette) on the inner corner. Make sure to blend the mint color in with the dark teal on the lower lash line.
5. Apply white liner on the waterline and apply mascara.

 Hope you enjoyed the look! ♥
