Random EOTD

Hello Ladies,

While I go through highs and lows on my postings, I generally take photos of my makeup looks almost every day. Here are two looks that I've found on my camera from few weeks ago.

The first look is what I call "reverse Ukrainian flag". I always forget which color goes on top (shame on me), so I accidentally reversed it in my look :( I used Sleek's SUNSET palette for it.

The second look is the fastest smoky eye look that I've done, ever! I used Wet N Wild Perfect Pair Eye Wand in 110 Black-Slate. I originally bought this because I needed a black eyeliner, but decided to try this because it has both black eyeliner and gorgeous silver cream eyeshadow. I paid $2.99 for it at BX, but it could cost more in regular stores.

The eyeliner part is very creamy and glides on wonderfully. I used it on waterline too and it didn't irritate my eyes at all (but I have to mention that my eyes rarely get irritated by products).

I first apply the eyeliner part on both top and bottom, then smudge it with the silver eyeshadow. At this time, most of black gets rubbed off so I go over with eyeliner again. If needed, I go over with silver again to blend. I also don't cover my whole lid with the eyeshadow, because I'm afraid that it will transfer to brow area. This way it doesn't smudge, crease or transfer but I think it works for me because I have a large eyelid area. I'm not sure it will work for those who don't have much of an eyelid showing.

You can see here very well that I don't apply it to my whole eyelid, but once I open my eyes it gives an illusion of whole eyelid being covered.

What do you think?
