Russet/Garnet Inspired Eye of the Day


Today I felt like doing an eye makeup in russet/garnet shades.
I tried to keep the lips kind of neutral, so that they wouldn't balance out the eyes.

These are the products I used:





Eyes:
UDPP as primer
Dreamworld Minerals "Skogul" - all over lid up to browbone
Earthen Glow Minerals "Stunner" - inner 1/3 of lid
The She Space "One Stuck Sleigh" (holiday 2008 limited edition shade) - outer v and crease
Dreamworld Minerals "Antarctica" - browbone and inner corners of the eyes
NYX Doll Eye Mascara (black, volume formula)



Lips:
NYX "Auburn" Long Lip Pencil
NYX "Frosted Beige" Round Lipstick
NYX "Sweetheart" Lipgloss w/ Megashine


Face:
Earthen Glow Minerals - Camille foundation (Cover Me formula)
Earthen Glow Minerals - Lightly Tinted Finishing Powder


Cheeks:
Earthen Glow Minerals - Venice Blush




And the result?

I think I'm finally ready to face the world again :)
(Please excuse the horrible hair; I had been doing some styling experimenting which obviously didn't turn out very well. Promise I won't subject you to that again :))


So; what do you think of this look?
