FaceOfTheDay: A Little Rusty

Hello. Here is my FaceOfTheDay that I wore to work a few days ago. It's been awhile since I've done a very dramatic eye makeup.You know, the defined, almost cut-crease that makes the eyes look 3D. I need to do it more often because I felt a little rusty with my technique and blending. Oh no. I even had a "makeup artist's block" in the beginning and I had no idea what look to create. So, I bust out with my Urban Decay Alice in Wonderland eye shadow palette. Seeing all the different colors in the palette got my creative juices going. 

I ended up creating a dramatic and defined eye makeup using shimmery beige on the lid, dark brown and purple on the crease and gold on the inner corner. The gold really popped beautifully. Like what I said, my technique and blending was a little rusty, but I got a lot of compliments at work so I guess it wasn't too bad.
