I cannot believe you did that yourself, it looks so professional! You've done the gradient of colour so well, and I always find it tricky doing eyeshadow up to the brow but you've done it expertly.

chrysee - i think my work is far from flawless, but WOW, thank you for the compliment! ;D

rai & vietxpinay - thank you! i thought it needed a punch of color. i couldn't just have a look with all pink. lol

kay - thanks girl! just remember, when you start to blend up, you wanna have a light hand.. apply less pressure while doing those windshield wiper motions! (=

I've always wondered how to do really pretty, girly eyeshadow. I love eyeshadows, and I always had the colors, but never the skills. Hah. I finally remembered that I wanted to learn (things keep coming up!), and I did a search. Your blog came up and it's exactly what I wanted to know. The only difference is that I have blonde hair and blue eyes, so I can't really do heavy liners without looking raccoon-like. Also, if I do liner on my bottom lashline, it makes my eyes look droopy. Not fun!

You make this look easy, so I'm going to try it in the morning with different colors for work since I don't have to go in until later. Haha!

Do you have a recommendation for an eyeshadow base that can be used for every look? A universal base color? Does that make sense?

Thanks for writing and I can't wait for a new tutorial!

stacy - thank you for checking out my blog! as far as a base... what are you looking for? something to make your eyeshadow stay on all day? if so, i use urban decay primer potion, also known as UDPP. it works great for all skintones. my eyeshadow has never ever creased when i use UDPP. hope i helped!
