Golden Swan Lake

Tried out a new design last weekend: instead of placing the darker colour on the outer lids, this time I chose to place it in the middle. I started by doing my inner and outer corners in a light yellow shade with satin finish from the Zoeva 88 Mattes palette and adding two defining, elegantly curved lines in Gold Dusk (wet). Then I applied Swan Lake to the middle of my lid and blended into the yellow shade with Gold Mode pigment. With a soft blending brush, I blended between the Gold Dusk lines, careful not to accidentally blend them as well. I finished the look with some more Gold Dusk under my eyes, as well as Ardell #27(?) lashes, white eyeliner, pink rhinestones, black kohl and a touch of CG Lash Blast mascara.

Gorgeous! I'm wondering what you use/recommend to keep the rhinestones in place?

Marce said...

Wow, beautiful. I'd love to see what the overall makeup looked like =)

Padmita said...

@Victoria: I just use regular transparent lash glue (Duo) :)

@Marce: I leave that to your imagination ;)
