Purple Dream or Midnight Magic?

After taking a break from blogging for a few days, I decided to continue with my series of eye shadow looks from the Stila eye shadow palette and lookbook In the Moment.

Today I’m writing about the first look, which is called Wide Eyed Wonder.

To get it closer to the sample picture, you need a heavier hand and you have to wet the brush. You need at least two brushes, an eyelid brush and a crease brush. Also it can look more glamorous if you apply lashes. In the pictures I’m just wearing mascara (PhysiciansFormula Organic Wear Fakeout Mascara in Ultra Black). Overall I was pleased with the look, and I did think that it made my eyes look a little bigger and wider. It’s also very easy to replicate. That’s all for today’s look. Stay tuned for the next one!
