EOTD - Fuschia Eyes

I adore the color pink in all shades but one color that is tricky to apply in eyeshadow form is fuchsia! It is not flattering to all skin tones and can sometimes look like an eye rash. o_O For me, the trick is to apply the color just in my crease and accentuate the shape of my eye. I used a number of different products for this look, from Milani to MAC. I was actually being matchy matchy with my cute orchid top from F21 that had shades of fuchsia and orange.

Full face! Sorry for the sun glared photo. I was applying my make up in the car! Me and my girl Liz had to run some errands before heading out and we ended up getting ready in her car. LoL! It looks pretty subtle here because of the sun, but the pictures below will show how vibrant the color is!

Products used:

Milani Runway Wet/Dry Eyeshadow in Beach Sand all over lid
MAC Sweeten Up in the crease
Magenta pigment in the layered in the crease on top of Sweeten Up - Ms. B sent a whole bunch of baggies of pigment from a cosmetic line in Thailand. They are very pigmented!
MAC Bright Fuchshia along the upper lashline
L'oreal Telescopic Clean Definition Mascara in Black 2x coats
MAC Fluidline in Blitz & Glitz
MAC Brow Shader in Soft Charcoal/Maple

Ms. B...oh girl, I got to be a pro at applying on the way to work. Making use of that time in stop & go traffic and those darn stoplights! In college, I could apply my make up on the bus!
