First EOTD with Tutorial

I remember the first piece of make up I ever used was an eyeliner pencil. Since then I have been obsessed with eye make up, and the main area of focus when it comes to doing my make up is the eye.

So naturally I've been wanting to do an EOTD for quite some time, but for whatever reason I just hadn't got around to it.
I thought I'd get the ball rolling with the eye make up I was wearing in my 'Perfect Mascara' post after being asked by the lovely Epiphannie.

This is pretty much a Bargain version of my go-to eye look, which usually is achieved using my Dior 5 Coleurs palette.

However, for THIS look I used the Palette from my 'Bargain Post' for this eye look.
Here are the colours I used:

How To:

1: Using an Eyeshadow Brush, highlight the brow bone with the off-white shadow.
2: With the same brush, pack the pearl-pink shadow onto the eyelid up to meet the highlight.
3: Apply the light-pink shadow to the outer third of the eyelid to the bone just above the crease.

4: Using a Pencil Brush, apply the bright fuchsia shadow just under the lower lash-line, and bring the colour up to the eyelid crease. Then use a Blending Brush to blend the colour out.
5: Using the Pencil Brush again, apply the dark-plum colour to the eyelid crease, contouring the eye and giving the look more depth.

6: Define the eyes with a winged-effect using a black liquid liner. (I used Rimmels 'Exaggerate' liquid liner)
7: Finally, Curl the lashes before applying desired Mascara. (I chose my new favourite: Collection 2000's Collagen Curl)

I love this eye look as it can be worn during the day, and it's easy to turn into a night look by just using one of the dark brown or grey shades in the outer corner of the eye, with the addition of false-lashes if you wish!

I hope you like this look, will be back with more soon!
