Lauren Luke of YouTube (and I’m sure other YouTubers as well) has been doing a series of Lucky Dip posts – rummage in your storage, pull out something at random and make a look with it! I thought it looked fun, so I’ve done a few Lucky Dip looks for you. I decided to use my indie eyeshadow and keep them to an eye look rather than a full face look – mainly because all my indie shadows are stored together and the jars are really similar, so I wouldn’t be able to tell what I was picking by touch! I’m going to use four shadows for each look, and pick a glitter and a pencil eyeliner for each look as well. Again, these items are easy for me to rummage for! Because I don’t have a ton of bases and brow products, I’ve allowed myself to chose whatever I normally would use for my brows if I need to, and use regular bases like my MUA primer and NYX Milk (but not coloured primers or paintpots.)
Let’s see what I pulled out for Lucky Dip number 1:
Clockwise from top left: glitter from eBay, Silk Naturals Kingfisher, Living Dead Grrl That’s A Fact, Darling Girl Wisteria Cloud, Darling Girl Peacemaker, Rimmel Cool Blue.
Well, this could have turned out a lot worse! The eyeliner and the chartreuse shade worried me, but I really like what I came up with…
First I applied “It’s a Fact!” to the outer half of my lid. I then applied “Kingfisher” to the outer half, and then went back in with “It’s a Fact!” and blended in the middle. Next I went in with “Peacemaker” and blended that through the crease.Then, I took Rimmel “Cool Blue” kohl pencil and lined my waterline and lower lashline, taking it up past my waterline to join the shadow on the upper lid. I then took “Peacemaker” again and blended that over the pencil on the outer half of my lashline, again joining it up with the top. Then I took “Wisteria Cloud” and use it as a highlight on my inner corner and browbone. Mixing “Peacemaker” with some mixing medium, I then used it as a liner and winged it out to join up with the “Peacemaker”/”Cool Blue” combo on the lower lashline. Lastly, I tapped a little of the glitter over Pixie epoxy to give my lower lashline some sparkle.
I think I got quite lucky with this one, no?
