Neutral shimmer eye FOTD


This look was based on a comment from the lovely Vintage Makeup, as a few posts back I had accidently repeated a look and she suggested a shimmery neutral eye. I hadn't tried this kind of make-up since going blue, and therefore I did on Monday.
I thought the result was super flattering and (for me) really different so here it is.

Eye base - UDPP in Eden, Pixie Epoxy (lid) and NYX Jumbo pencil in Milk (tearduct and browbone).
Eyeshadows - Virgin (tearduct and browbone), Naked (crease), Buck (crease) and Creep (outer v) from the Urban Decay Naked palette. Fyrinnae's Dinosaur Plushie on the lid (the most amazing multi-glittery silvery-taupe).
Eyeliner/Mascara/Lashes/Brows -  Boujois Clubbing liner intense in Black, Rimmel Lash Accelerator (one coat on top lashes only), Mister Mascara black lashes (the longer set of the two), Gosh brow powder (darkest of the three).
Foundation/Powder/Blush - MAC face primer (not sure which one, it's a mini sample I got months ago and am using up so I can try my No7 one), Laura Mercier oil-free tinted moisturizer in Porcelain, Collection 2000 lasting perfection concealer in light (under eyes, around nose and chin), Clinique loose translucent powder, MAC l/e Wonder Woman blush in Amazon Princess.
Lips - MAC lipliner in Cherry and lipstick in Russian Red. (I added a little lip balm on top as I had very cracked lips that day and it was not working for me matte!)
