For me the look is always about the eyes! I love the depth of colour here, the cateye shape gives the soft blending a dramatic edge. Not to mention the tiny silver stars that give a lovely finishing touch. Now personally I don't shave my eyebrows (although the frustration that plucking can bring does leave me very tempted sometimes), so obviously they are a nice optional extra if you do happen to shave yours, and really bring the look together. Luckily though, I did have some silver stars lying around from a nail accesory kit, and now I've used them once I want to use them all the time because they are so pretty. So here's what I ended up with, and I'll list what I used below:
The look I did ended up a lot more red than the original, probably because I used my Love+ Sugarpill eyeshadow, which is a bloodred pressed matt shadow. I also used a light red bronze in the inner corners and Sugarpill's Bulletproof matt black on the outer corners. I lined my top lids with black liquid eyeliner and the bottoms with my black twist-up pencil, not forgetting to line the upper and lower waterlines to blend in my false lashes. The lashes I used are by Eyelure and are my absolute favourites at the moment they go nicely with a cateye look and are the perfect medium length and thickness for me. I used a rose red lipstick on my lips, my current favourite L'Oréal foundation and a touch of red/brown blusher to contour my cheeks. I only actually used the star gems underneath my eyes, as they're quite big and uncomfortable to wear on the upper lids. And as you can see from the pictures, my hair is looking rather blue. So I took another photo with the flash to show you guys how truly green it is now! I found my ideal shade of green in Apple Green from Directions hair dye.
I originally dyed it green right before Halloween, so even people I know were asking if I had it this colour especially, and now with Christmas coming up people are still asking if it's some sort of seasonal special! Eyeroll! I suppose if you live like its Halloween everyday you could say that ;D
