Samples Challenge Day 9.

Background: I noticed that lately, my indie eyeshadow samples are not getting enough love, simply because it's easier for me to reach for tubs. So I decided to challenge myself to use them more often. Everyday, I pick 2 eyeshadow samples randomly out of my collection without looking, and I have to use them. I can add other products in, but the 2 colours have to be the main part of the look.

I finally broke my Notoriously Morbid streak! I drew Beauty For The Win's TSWGO (swatches here) & Daisy Bird's April Showers (swatches here).

I know cut creases aren't the most flattering looks for monolids, but these seemed like cut creases sort of colours, so here's the look I ended up with. I did a less severe sort of cut crease, so it's more in between a cut crease and a halo eye (for a monolid cut crease tutorial, you can head here).

For this look, I went with primer only. The blue-ish sheen to April Showers is not a colour balance error, the shade actually does have that blue-ish sheen in real life.

The lip colour is actually the result of me not being able to decide what lip colour to wear. I kept trying on different colours and then realized the stain left on my lips looked good, so I rolled with it.
