EOTD: Blue Fairy New Year's Eve Look

I'm sorry I haven't posted an EOTD in a while, between the holidays and our family being sick non-stop for a while I just haven't had it in me to capture any of the looks I've done. So sorry! But, I wanted to make sure I posted a New Year's Eve Look since it's such a fun time to do something extra special with your makeup ;)

I wanted to make sure I gave you lovely makeup lovers 2 views of this look so that you can see some of the details like the blending in the crease, the double-winged liner, etc. I really like this look! For some reason when I thought about doing a New Year's Eve look I instantly thought of doing a fairy-like, whimsical yet sexy look that incorporated some silver (I prefer silver over gold for some reason!) and some of my favorite makeup brands from 2011. I was also itching to try out some of my new Sugarpill shadows. I'm actually really pleased with how it turned out. Sometimes you get a fabulous idea and then executing it is a nightmare ;)

Here's what I used:
  • Benefit Stay Don't Stray Primer - patted all over lid and under eye
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in #3 - patted over 3/4 of lid starting at inner corner
  • Sugarpill Royal Sugar loose shadow - patted onto outer corner of lid and blended into silver, pulled down to outer corner of drop shadow
  • Sugarpill Bulletproof pressed shadow - blended into "outer v" and pulled into crease
  • Sugarpill Tako pressed shadow - patted lightly into inner corner over silver and onto part of inner drop shadow
  • Sugarpill Lumi loose shadow - patted into inner corner and pulled up to blend into edges of Royal Sugar, pulled from inner corner down into drop shadow and blended into edge of Royal Sugar
  • Fyrinnae Nijiro loose shadow - blended from outer corner of Royal sugar to brown (buy this if you want a unique, sparkly neutral shade!)
  • Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes pencil in 0L - lined upper and lower waterlines
  • Maybelline waterproof liquid mascara in black - lined upper lash line and pulled outer corner into tiny double-wings
  • Faux Lash in Alexia - used Duo lash glue 
Now you may be wondering--did she forget to apply mascara to her lower lash line? The answer is--no, I ddin't forget it was a conscious choice! I intentionally didn't apply mascara to my lower lashes because sometimes when I do winged liner on my upper lash line I try not to draw too much attention to my lower lash line. I did line the waterline simply because I didn't like the way it looked naked or with any shade of liner but black. Obviously if you wanted to replicate this you could do what you like with your lower lashes!

On a side note, I am so absolutely thrilled with all of the new Sugarpill shades I used tonight! I am in love with Sugarpill and can't wait to see what Amy comes out with in the future! I'll be doing a post on my makeup favorites from 2011 tomorrow so keep your eyes peeled.

What do you think of this look?
