Halloween Makeup #1 Atlantic Goddess-extension of usual makeup

Since one of my good friends asked me what I'd wear and do for Halloween, I started thinking of what kind of makeup (lol) would be good for this season. Actually, in Japan, we don't have Halloween custom at all. But maybe for business, there are so many party stuff for it at any store here. like tons of sweets, accessories, Halloween limited menu at restaurants, and so on. I think you can imagine that. it's totally like Christmas. Then today I decided to do makeup of Atlantic Goddess looks like an extension of a bit loud makeup like I do on my day off.

Today I mainly used Bourjois' eyeshadow which I got last Saturday. I really wanted to use one of them A LOT to see how they come out on my  day off and the time finally came haha.

Orange Eyes in Black Inspired by Ashley Greene

In the November issue of Japan GOSSIPS, I found Ashley Greene who I never knew until today! Since I've never watched Twilight at all yet, I didn't know her. Looking at her picture, I thought oh she looks cool! and I want to do her makeup. Plus it looked easy to do :) So this is what I've done down here
Using and mixing 3 different colors of Orange and surrounding eyes with black line. Though I used pearl white all over my lids, those black lines keep eyes looking sharp and aggressive. When you use lighter colors on your lids than others on your crease, you want to use the strongest color around your eyes not to make them look vague or obscure.
Okay! then please read this til the end!
*As always, apply any eyeshadow base you have all over the lid, and take Champagne e/s by NYX on the pencil brush. Put this on the inner corner of crease and bring it to the middle of it. Keep pressing the brush until well colored.
