I was reading through my blog subscriptions at work yesterday like I do every morning & I discovered that Lime Crime was hosting a makeup contest inspired by Snow White. I was super excited because I’ve always wanted to try LC products, but they are WAY too overpriced for me, so I love that I have the opportunity to try and compete for some. This is going to be a super long post (both text & pics) so you may just want to skim through the pics, but if you want to see step-by-step of the eye makeup keep reading!
The look I came up with was inspired by the Disney version of the Evil Queen because I’ve really been diggin’ purple lately. Before I actually pulled out my cosmetics, I decided to come up with a design on a face chart & this is what I created:
I liked the concept, but it’s really similar to the way I wear my makeup everyday, so I threw some jagged lines across the cheeks for some character, but still didn’t know how I felt about them
This was the end result when I brought the look to life.
Innitially I only had the black outlining my face and neck, but my sister was the one who suggested I outline the black with gold & make it “represent” the queen’s crown I guess you could say.
And this is how I did my eyes:
First I primed my lid with urban decay primer potion, set it with press powder & applied #NYX shadow base in white
Then I applied sugarpill press shadow in dollipop to the lower half of the lid
Next I applied sugarpill poisonplum on top of dollipop
I took bobbi brown charcoal & darkened outter-v
Outlined where I wanted to cut my crease applied NYX JEP in #blackbean to lower lashline & #NYC white liner to waterline
Went over the harsh crease line with a fluffy brush & charcoal & blended it up with poison plum & highlighted browbone with sugarpill tako. I also smudged the lower lash line with poison plum & then dollipop
I added NYX JEP in Cottage cheese then urban decay verve & pistol to inner corner
NYC liquid liner kiss lashes 05 &mascara
Lined lips with urban decay 24/7 glide on pencil in zero blended it inward with Kat Von D lipstick in homegirl and smudged it with MAC magenta lip pencil & blended that inward with #MUFE #C16
And here are a few more pictures of the final look:
