EOTD: When the Sun SetsEyes:
Urban Decay Primer Potion
M·A·C Femme Fi (highlight)
Sleek MakeUP Palette in "Sunset"

CoverGirl LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara

Sigma Makeup SS239, SS217 and M·A·C #219

What did I do?
As usual I started off this look by priming both my lids up to the brow using UDPP. I started with the yellow shade (top row, 5th shadow from the left) and chose to concentrate it on the inner third of my lid, patting it on with the SS239. I then used the same brush for the orange shade (top row, 4th shadow from the left), using the same patting motion to place it all over the middle of my lid, blending it slightly together with the yellow. To tie everything together I used the dark red shade (top row, 2nd shadow from the left) for the outer part of my lid, and the crease. I see now from the picture that I shouldn't have pulled the red as far in towards the inner corner as I actually did. I should also have used a more matte highlight for this look, but ended up using Femme Fi since it's one of my favorites. Using Feline I lined my waterline halfway in, smudged it out a little with the #219, and finished off with one coat of LashBlast mascara on my upper lashes. Oh, and I used the SS217 for all my blending.

First of all I have to praise these Sleek MakeUP palettes once more. The colors are so frigging vibrant and pigmented. The three colors I chose for this look looks a little more metallic in real life than in the picture, I don't know if that's a plus or a minus, but I do know that I'll be doing this look over and over again. How come I didn't have these awesome colors when the winter almost smothered me with its depressing presence? These colors mixed together make me think of the gorgeous midnight sun that I grew up with up north. Evenings in the end of summer, sitting outside watching the sun set behind the mountains. The smell of autumn approaching, the small changes in nature, the feeling of being utterly happy and unaware of the responsibility that comes with an adult life. Memories I want to keep with me forever. Memories that make me smile.

This EOTD a tribute to Sneezingpanda!
