EOTD: MAC, Stila and Maybelline

Hi pretty gals! Using the same tools, my sister and I have come up with a two looks! 

I (Trace) have decided to do something completely apt for day and just enhanced the shape of my eyes - hence, I confined the bronze and brown within eyelid fold. I also only lined 3/4 of my eyelid to make the impact very subtle. 

Dawn, in the meantime, went all smokey and perfect for night! She blended the shadow beyond her crease line, following its contour. She also extended the liner to create a mild cat's eye shape!

Do notice that MAC Rubenesque showed up peachy on my NC25 skin, while Dawn got a very gold finish when applied on her NC5 tone. Using Stila's Bronze Glow Eyeshadow Trio, I also liberally concentrated the bronze shadow on my eyes while Dawn blended the dark  brown on hers. We both lined the inner corners with the brightest shadow for a brightening effect. The same Stila Smudge Pot liner became vibrant bronze on me, while on Dawn's eyes the effect simmered down to a darker hue. But of course, no complaints using the Maybelline Cat Eyes Mascara! 

Funny that even if we use the same products, the end result is always different - blame it on the skin tone and the technique!

  5. Agnes - Definitely! We're actually working on an EOTD using NYX's Runway Palette in Champage and Caviar (while we salivate on UD's Naked Palette) =)

    Sugar - Thanks! Yes, the smudgepot is good! It's even better than MAC fluidline when it comes to staying power. I am so sad I sold my black pot :(
