If you must know, I’m not all that crazy about my outfit of the day today. However, I am especially excited about my change in eye makeup. I usually just wear a thin line of Bobbi Brown gel eye liner in chocolate shimmer ink with a few coats of mascara, but today I was feeling a little more adventurous. In an effort to make my eyes the focus of my look today, I used a few colors from Urban Decay’s Naked eyeshadow palette.

I started with Urban Decay’s eyeshadow primer potion to make the eyeshadow stay in place throughout the day. I am by no means a makeup expert, but I did my best to create a gradient pattern using a combination of ‘Virgin’, ‘Sin’ and ‘Sidecar’ on my lids to make a light base. Then, I used a combination of ‘Hustle’ and ‘Darkhorse’ on the outer halves of my lids. I swept the dark color from the outside in, using my finger to blend the light and dark colors where they met in the middle. I lined my top and bottom lash line with ‘Creep’, trying to get as close to my eyes and lash line as possible. Finally, I extended the bottom and top lines of ‘Creep’ into a subtle cat-eye shape and swiped a few coats of Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara to finish.
It turned out to be a happy coincidence that my top from Old Navy also had a gradient pattern!
That’s all for now! xo
