EOTD: Nightingale

When I started this look I had no idea what I was going to do...I started with Vixen in the upper crease then added Manson to the crease and then Nightingale on the lid. With a bit of Snow in the inner corner and taaaa daaa!

What I used:
-Kat Von D skin toned primer and a bit of Evil Shades primer in naked
-Nightingale on the lid
-Manson in the crease
-Vixen in the upper crease
-Snow in the inner corner
- An ulta skin toned eye shadow as the highlight
-UD 24/7 liner in 1999 in the lower lashline
-UD 24/7 liner in Perversion in the waterline
-Hard Candy Fiberized mascara (was a fail i got fibers in my eyes)

Guest Post: Prettymom's Vixen from Day to Night

This our very first Guest Post! Coco from http://www.prettymom.org has done a look that is neutral for day and by bumping up the lip color can take you to a night look.

BRM eyeshadows used: Vixen, Earthen and Sponge

First step: prime eyes with Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Second step: apply Vixen on the lid
Third step: apply Earthen on the outer corner of the eye and the crease and blend out
Fourth step: apply Sponge at inner corner and blend out
Fifth step: line the eyes with brown from Physician Formula Gel Cream Liner for Brown Eyes
Sixth step: add Maybelline falsies mascara to the lashes

For day look, use a light neutral lip color. I used Silk Naturals Lipstick in Bon Bon.

For look, use a dark intense color. I used Bourjois Sweet Kiss Natural lipstick in Rogue Soyeux.

EOTD: Royal Venom

I started off with Evil Shades primer in naked then added UD 24/7 shadow pencil in barracuda on the lid and blended it out. Next i applied royal orchid on the lid and a bit onto the crease. Then i put venom in the crease, and blended it out with an ulta shadow in silk. Then added a touch of bleed black in the outer v, which you can hardly see. I added slip and fall in the inner corner. Finished it off by applying UD 24/7 liner in electric on the lower waterline and lash line, oh and mascara.

Products used:
-Evil Shades primer in Naked
-UD 24/7 shadow pencil in Barracuda
-BRM Royal Orchid on the lid
-BRM Venom in the crease
-BRM Slip and Fall in the inner corner
-BRM Bleed Black in the outer v
