Playing with my new Sugarpill eyeshadow and mixing it with my BH Cosmetics shimmers!

Speaking of BH Cosmetics (bad change of topic) Go check out BH Cosmetics contest! I'm in it and thanks to a lot of you, currently in 1st! [link] It may only be a .4 lead, but seriously, I love you guys! haha! So go check it out and pick your favourite!

Amazing color and blending. Great color choices! Very expertly done. This would be something great for a winter based costume or even a common elf or high elf costume. I think it really is a great choice for the eye color because it sets it apart. The upward sweep of the blue dots on the side of the eye help to finish the framing of the eye. Also, the dark blue right under the eye crease shading draws your eyes right to the middle of the make-up allowing you to take in everything at once. I normally do the sides of my eyes with the white or lighter color because I feel it gives a younger look but is also very expressive just as this is.

I have featured this wonderful work in my newest BLUE-collection![link]

I hope you will agree and enjoy!:iconbouncykingplz:
Lol I want to try this on my own eyes, I doubt it will even remotely close! I'm so bad with makeup, I can only do two colors and that's it. I'm even hopeless with a simple smokey eye. Lol send me a video or a step by step? xD

I really love this look. Sadly, I don't have the skill to do makeup like this (...yet). But I just love the way the blue of the eyeshadow and the brown of your eye contrast. It's very nice :meow:
