Here's the eyes and lips from the outfit that I posted yesterday. If I had thought about it (or had a working brain), I would have taken a full face picture. You're not missing anything exciting. All I had on my face was a tinted moisturizer, MAC Hang Loose blush, Benefit High Beam, NARS Laguna bronzer, and MAC Impeccable Brow pencil in Taupe. :) The brow pencil will be shown in a later post, because my friend bought me a few MAC items for my birthday and I'll share the swatches with you. Yep, she knows the way to my heart. Haha!

I used Benefit's Creaseless Shadow in Strut as a base, UD Vorpal (S&M) was used as the lid color, and MAC Carbon was for the outer corner and to darken the crease. The CoverGirl liner was used for my waterline. I used CoverGirl LashBlast mascara to finish the look. I combined Maybelline's Nude Glow with MAC's If It's Pink Dazzleglass Creme on my lips.

Completely forgot to add the gel liner to the picture above, so I'll just show an older one. I used this on my upper lash line.

The flash didn't help at all. You can see the colors more realistically in the picture below.

It's darker than I usually tend to wear, but I went out at night. I find you can get away with more at night. :)

Instead of lipstick and then gloss, I did the opposite. I wanted the glitter, but not as much of the shine. So I dabbed a nude-pink lipstick over the gloss to tone it down.

And there you have it! That was my FOTD for Sunday. :)

Great look! =)

I've tried doing a dark look at night time with a gray/silver/black look, but I felt weird... The darkest I've ever gone was dark brown! lol, I went out anyway, but I don't think I'm ever going to do that again. XD

@Linh- I used to feel weird doing darker looks, but I make myself go out of my comfort zone. I figure, we're only young once! I need to get the crazy out of my system, because I don't want to be THAT 40 yr. old woman in bright green eyeshadow. :P This was definitely darker than I tend to go, because I love my browns too!
