My first play with colour - Navy Blue

Morning ladies, I was having a play with my Storm Sleek palette last night and came up with this look and I have to say I didn’t want to take it off.

I only finished 1 eye but I loved it, it’s very dramatic for me as I am a bit of a neutral girl. I know what I like and I like what I know that kinda thing. Darren ♥ said it looked good but got a bit of a shock when I said I would be wearing it out at the end of the month! He said “what? not with them black eyes!” lol. I admit it needs a little tidying up under the eyes but it's not that bad!

I haven’t got any Urban Decay Primer Potion left *sad face* so used number 1 as a base colour it’s a matt nude colour, then using surgical tape to get the line I smudged Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in Zero all over the lid with my finger as a base then covered with number 2 the matt black colour followed by number 3 the shimmery navy blue colour. Using an angled brush I applied some of the matt black under my lower lash line keeping it close to the lashes. Finally I added an odd Ardell lash that I found in the bottom of my make up bag (classly! lol) . I’m pretty sure it’s one of the Wispies variety.

This picture shows the blue under my eyes alot more than the first, it's alright for a first attempt though.

What do you think? Maybe I should do both eyes and complete the look with a nude lip, maybe Gosh Darling and Prrr lipglass by MAC? (It's the only nudeish lipglass I own) We can’t have dramatic eyes and lips can we!
