♫ Big Bang - Fantastic Baby
I've probably been listening to a little too much of Big Bang's new songs, especially Fantastic Baby, which always brings bright vivid colours to mind. I mean, just take a look at their outfits (and GD's hair wtf). Also, I cannot get "boom shakalaka" out of my head.
Music playlist repetition aside, I seriously love the combination of pink and purple. Add to that my current obsession with the various shades of mint/turquoise, and you get this "Eye of the Day" look, which I've named Pur-Pink (I know, not very original, but... meh). :P
I wouldn't dare to wear a combination of such bold colours out in public, so I only experiment with them at home. I usually keep my eyeshadow makeup neutral and toned down, unless it's for special occasions.
The colours I used are all from the Urban Decay 15th Anniversary palette. The eyeshadows are a dream to work with - they're so pigmented and buttery smooth! I was really attracted by the bright pink and purple eyeshadows in the palette at first, but after purchasing it, I found myself using more of the brown and gold shades instead.
|Super love the sturdy metal packaging! ♥|
Clockwise from top left: Tainted, Junkshow, Deep End & Omen
With the exception of Blackout, which is matte black, all the other colours in this palette are shimmery. Normally I dislike shimmery/glittery eyeshadows, but these babies are just perfect! They apply with a nice sheen that isn't over-the-top.
A diagram because I'm too lazy to describe it, and I know people would prefer to see pictures. :P That dark purplish line on the upper lash line is actually black eyeliner; I applied the eyeshadows over it, that's why it looks purple. ^^" Hey, it doesn't look that bad, right? :D
|The finished look. :)|
Oh, and the pair of "kiddy shoes for adults" I've been wanting and then waiting for like forever finally arrived! ("Kiddy shoes" because they're straps instead of laces, lol ~_~) Couldn't decide between blue, green and pink, but in the end I decided that the blue was nicer. Yay for lazy peeps like me who can't be bothered to tie shoelaces. XD
