Tipsy EOTD

My pictures never seem to do Tipsy Chromalust from Sugarpill any justice. In the mirror I see a rich shimmering warm grass green with green glittery sparkley goodness. On photos it seems to come out a minty bright green (this was probably enhanced by the mint green base I used... oops). I had tried to do a cool cut crease inspired by a recent tutorial by Dusty on youtube but it just wasn't working (for the record I was trying it with Sugarpill Poison Plum as the outer/crease colour and chromalust in Darling used wet on the lid. The colours were great but my skills were not).
I moved on and did this instead. When in doubt, I go with green... everytime. This is very similar to about six of my other posts so I'm clearly a creature of habit.

  1. That Eyeliner colour is absolutely phenomenal! x

  2. The yellow one, Joanna? I really love it. I opened the red one I have today and it was cracked down the middle. I hope they're not drying out already, I've only had them for two months! x

  3. I really like how you used yellow for your waterline. Haven't really seen that before - most people use white. But the yellow really adds that bold spice to the overall look. Very nice!

  4. Thanks Mary. I have a few bright gel-liners, and since I struggle using gel liner as liner on my top lid I end up using them in the waterline.
