EOTD 02.26.12 Mad Unicorn Pee

Good News Everyone! A new EOTD!

Today's eye started with a little inspiration from Nicki Minaj. I first saw it looking for inspiration for my last look. HOLY MOLY.. have you seen the way she wears yellow? Yeah.. that's my AWE face. LOL! I don't generally take inspiration from celebrities. But when I saw that blue/ purple gradient from her Super Bass video my heart skipped a beat. This is just inspired by her look, I don't have professional MUA skills plus I don't have any mattes, so instead I used lots of shimmery metallics and glitters. It looks really sparkly and pretty in person. However my photography skills have yet to improve enough to capture the beauty of holo glitter on camera.. but believe me when I say the portion of this look that includes unicorn pee is a FABULOUS GLITTER BOMB! :D

What I used:
NYX Jumbo Pencil: Milk - White base
Beauty From the Earth: Butt Naked - Highlight & inner 1/2 lower lash line
My Pretty Zombie: Unicorn Pee - Inner 1/3 lid/crease
Sugarpill ChromaLust: Starling - Middle 1/3 lid/crease
My Pretty Zombie: Mad Cow - Outer 1/3 lide crease
Beauty From the Earth: Midnight Kisses - outer 1/2 lower lash line flicked out to wing
Maybelline The Falsies Volum Express Mascara: Very Black
ELF Liquid Eyeliner: #4203 black - eyeliner + wing
NYX Jumbo Pencil: Milk - waterline
Brazen Cosmetics: Peep Show - lips

Indoor Lighting
Natural Light

The only photo where the holo glitter showed at all.

So hope your weekends are going well. Mine is going pretty good too thanks! The power company is coming in and doing some work on Tuesday this week. This means at minimum the power will be off for 8 hours. So my question for you all is WHAT the heck do you do when the power is out? I need lots of ideas! That's a long time without heat, heated food, light, internet, etc... Thanks for looking!

NTMS: Mellow Yellow Challenge

Never Too Much Sparkle Facebook Group Challenge:
Mellow Yellow

 For Challenges I'm not going to list off products used. It will just be a photo entry for the most part and how I was influenced by the challenge. If you are curious about a particular item I used, please feel free to comment below and I'll do my best to answer!

My influence:
A yellow and orange rose. .. and of course the Donovan song "They call me mellow yellow.... Quite Rightly" ran through my head the entire time I applied this makeup. I will say this for this week.. it was certainly a challenge for me. I'm not a fan of yellow. I like it in tiny doses.. thrown in just for a spot of color.. I don't think it looks good with my skin tone (accentuates redness) , and to be quite honest.. I'm not exactly thrilled with how this looks. However.. I did try my best, and decided that was enough to at least show it to you guys anyway. Anyone have any tips for a yellow-phobic makeup user? LoL! Thanks for looking!
