This is another prom makeup idea post but I'm doing something a little different today. I used the 88 original palette to do this look so instead of doing my normal 'what I used' section, I've highlighted on this picture below all the colours I used and where I used them. I figured it was easier than me trying to describe the colours or doing a 'row 2, column 5 type thing'. Anyway, here are the colours I used (click to view bigger):
This look frustrated me alot because it took me a few tries to get it somewhat decent and I'm still not really happy with how it came out. The first time I tried it I decided to add some Shu Uemura lashes but these lashes have a really thick band and I just didn't have much luck putting them on so the end result was this:
I decided to take the lashes off but that ended up stripping some of the colour off near the lashline:
I then decided to add definition and colour back there by using the colours mentioned above but it didn't look very good:
So I just went for the liquid liner which is my normal fail safe when I can't get the whole smudgy, soft 'eyeshadow as liner' thing to work:
I realised after I took the pictures that my liner was a bit stuffed near the tear duct but my camera battery died so I gave up on trying to fix it! Lol here's the final look:
I wasn't planning on showing you all of the failed attempts but I decided to in the end to show that you can always rescue a look so there's no need to panic if something like this happens when you're getting ready for prom.
Trying to rescue this EOTD got me thinking about makeup disasters and so I have to ask, do you have a makeup disaster story you'd care to share ?
