Ladybug eye

Sorry I've been AWOL so long! Between university, job dramas and life stuff, I've had hardly any energy to keep my head above water, let alone blog. I've been reading everyone else's stuff and commenting here and there, but just had nothing to write about.

I have two weeks of university left for this year and then it's HOLIDAYS! So hopefully I will be a bit more refreshed then.

In the meantime, I finally got to work on an idea that's been kicking around in my head for a while. I don't do EOTDs, and Halloween isn't huge in Australia at all, but I wanted to do a fantasy sorta look based on the ladybug necklace I made a while ago:

I used:
Concrete Minerals Electric Eye Pencil
Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
Fyrinnae's Pixie Epoxy
Turquoise blue from the Sleek Curious palettte
Black from Sleek palette
Nyx Jumo Eye Pencil in Black Bean
Bifrost from Fyrinnae
My Mantra from Sassy Minerals
Frost from Concrete Minerals
Random mascara (only put on a tiny bit)

And here is the result!

I don't normally do themed looks at all, in fact I barely do anything photo-worthy! Hence I only did one eye for this look. If I did it as a full-face thing, I'd probably pair it with black lipstick. And get a brown eyeliner pencil to do the spots instead of the rather-too-bendy eyeliner brush I used. And make the ladybug bigger.

Now how does it measure up to the original item?

Pretty darn well if I do say so myself! :)

    I've been so swamped with everything :( I think it'll be picture-heavy posts for a while, last few weeks of semester and then I won't know what to do with myself :) hehe.
