Make It Up Monday: Mardi Gras Eyes

Hello my beauties! Seeing that tomorrow is Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday, I thought I would have a little fun with my eye look. I had a lot of fun making this look, so I hope you enjoy it too.

For my eyeshadow I used the Morphe 35B and James Charles Palette because of all of their bright colors and great quality. The first two shadows I used are the bright yellow and yellow shimmer from the 35B palette all over my lid. I then took the bright green, again from the 35B palette, and put that into my crease and gave a large wing. I then stacked the bright purple, again 35B, on top of the green and followed the shape of the wing. I then took my NYX Glitter Glue and pat it on the inner third of my eye. I then took the Artistry color from the James Charles palette and pat it right over the top of the glue. Then for an added bit of sparkle, I took some gold glitter and applied it to the glitter glue I had put on the inner quarter of my eye.

For my foundation I used my Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24h foundation in 090 IVO N. I applied this using a beauty blender and that is also how I applied my concealer. The concealer I used is the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser in Fair. To bake my face I used my favorite loose powder, the Laura Mercier Loose Translucent Setting Powder. I did this to my T-Zone, under my eyes, around my nose, and my jaw line.

For my blush, I used something that is newer to me. The Milani Baked  Blush in Luminoso. Until I tried this, I thought I would never be be able to wear peach blushes. This goes on light and can be built up if I want more color. For bronzer I used the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. I just got this and I am really loving getting to use it now. For my cupids bow and nose highlight I used a Colourpop Super Shock Highlighter in Stole the  Show but for my cheekbones, I used the Cover FX Glitter Drops in Aurora This is my first time using this and boy does it pack a punch! For my contour, I used my mini Benefit Hoola Bronzer. It goes on soft so you can either have a gentle contour or have a really chiseled look.

I primed my lashes with the L’Oreal Voluminous Base primer and for my mascara I used my Lanccome Grandiose Extreme. This mascara reminds me of the new mascara that is out that has the bendable handle. This mascara has an already bent wand and it really does help me to have more control and it helps to coat all my lashes. I think the new mascara will have the same effect. For my lips I used the newer Maybelline Shine lipstick in a deep blue red. This goes on so nicely but I found that wearing a lip liner might be a good idea. It didn’t bleed too bad, but I only had it on for a short amount of time.

Here is how the look turned out:

All in all, I was really pleased with how the look turned out. What do you guys think? I’d love to know, so leave it down below in the comments. Thank you so much for reading and your continued support it means the world to me. I will be seeing you on Wednesday! XO
