New ways of using Sugarpill shadows...

I saw a youtube tutorial Shrinkle posted on the Sugarpill facebook by lilpumpkinpie05 that uses Sugarpill's Afterparty over a black base to make a smokey colour. I loved it so much I used a similar technique in this look. I had first tried it using Midori, which I showed a few posts back. I love how this made a somehow bright yet smokey blue colour. I found it helped with blending too.

Base: Urban Decay Primer Potion, NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk (inner corner), Kryolan Aquacolor in Black (crease), Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Mould (under eye).

Eyeshadows: Sugarpill Afterparty in crease, Inglot bright matte blue on lid (I think number 371), Inglot AMC shine 28 (purple/blue glittery white), Sugarpill Poison Plum, Fyrinnae Delvian.

Liner: Inglot matte gel liner number 85

Mascara: Boujois Volumiser

I have lots of new stuff from the London trip to play around with, but I am trying to organise my stuff so that I use a little of everything all the time. It's quite tricky. To help me get my head around it all, I am "rationing" certain things. As gel liners dry up in my experience, I am using the green first for a while, then I'll try the others. I want to get the most out of them, and I think I'd be a bit overwhelmed if I had all three opened at once. Thanks for looking,
