Urban Decay Show Pony shadow box: Smokey Teal look // Mini drugstore haul

So i decided to do a teal look on saturday night for my friend's 22nd birthday. I was going to do a video tutorial but it was dark in my room because it's nightime already by the time i was getting ready so i decided to do a step by step still image tutorial :) I used the teal eyeshadow "painkiller" and shimmery peachy white "snatch" in the UD show pony shadow box.

Step 1: Of course, the first step is to always prime your lids because you dont want your hard work art to crease. And you want it to last longer.


Step 2: Apply painkiller e/s or any teal eyeshadow you have ( if you have mac graphic garden palette you can go ahead and use the teal e/s there because it looks exactly the same as the painkiller)


Step 3: Go in with "shadowy lady" on the outer half of the lid & blend the two colors together in the middle where they meet



Step 4: Apply a matte black e/s on the outer corner and feather it in with the two e/s we applied earlier. BLEND BLEND BLEND!


Step 5: Apply an off white matte e/s on the browbone for highlight. Then apply "snatch" (any shimmery white) on the tearduct using a finger to kind of blend.


Step 6: Apply the teal and black e/s we used on the lower lash line


Step 7: Line the eyes and waterline with a black eyeliner. Apply false lashes for a dramatic look (optional). Dont forget to use mascara to blend the falsies with your real lashes.



Here's the finished eyes!


and here's the whole look!

I also want to share my mini drugstore haul. All these items i got were on sale :)

NYC sunny bronzer $2.99
Revlon super lustrous l/s in pink in the afternoon & rose and shine $3.99
Rimmel celeb l/s $2.99
Revlon super lustrous lipgloss in life's a peach
L'oreal Bare natural mascara (dollarama) $2.00
Maybelline great lash mascara clear $3.99

The nyc brozer was so powdery and chalky as soon as opened the package and swatched it. I wanted to try and see what the hype was all about with this bronzer but it was a total disappoinment. It did nothing to my face. On to the mascaras, i was so lucky to find the loreal mascara at dollarama. i just wanted to try it. it was only $2! I purchased the clear mascara from maybelline to use on my eyebrows. I find it too liquidy as oppose to gel to use it on my lashes. We'll see how that goes!
As for the 3 lip products here's some swatches on my lips ( oh and i didnt open the revlon rose & shine yet because im thinking of returning or exchanging it)

Rimmel in celeb


Revlon in pink in the afternoon ( as you can see the rimmel one is shinier!)


Revlon life's a peach lipgloss

I've always thought before that my lower lip looks kinda swollen lol then i realized im one of those people blessed with plumped lips ( well atleast my lower lip!) hahaha

OH and for those who haven't followed me on twitter here's the link: aprilrovi THANKS LOVELIES!
