So, it has been a while since I last posted a "colourful", outside the norm FOTD. Mainly because, I barely go out on Saturdays anymore and on Fridays, I have work during the day. Being in the professional line doesn't really give you much room to be creative when it comes to eye make up. Hence, I always make an effort to have more "special" make up whenever I have event to attend to on the weekends. 

Here is the look I wore to my best friend's wedding 2 weeks ago - a mixture of green, blue and purple

On my EYES
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Urban Decay Alice in The Wonderland Palette:
Urban Decay Black Palette:
Maybelline Eyestudio Drama Lasting Eyeliner in Black
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil in Flipside
Gypsy Eyelashes in #96
Shu Uemura Eyebrow Pencil in Hard

STEP 1: Apply Absolum all over the first 3/4 of your eyelid.

STEP 2: Apply Jet at the outer corner /V of your eyelid, creating a "V" shape.

STEP 3: Apply Alice all over 3/4 of your crease.

STEP 4: Gently pack on Underland at the 1/4 of your outer lid, overlapping Jet. 

STEP 5: Using a clean blending brush, blend all the colours together. You may always pack on more Absolum if you think the colour faded a little after all the blending. 

STEP 6: Apply your favourite gel liner on your upper lash line and a turquoise eyeliner on your lower lash line. I used Maybelline Eyestudio Drama Lasting Eyeliner in black and Urban Decay 24/7 Eye Pencil in Flipside respectively. (Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eyeliner Pencil *click for review and swatches" is an awesome and way cheaper dupe for Flipside!)

STEP 7: Using an angled brush, apply Underland on the outer half of your lower lash line and Absolum in the inner half of your lower lash line.

STEP 8: Apply a generous coat of mascara and put on your favourite pair of falsies. I am using Gipsy Lashes in #96. Don't forget to coat your lower lashes with mascara too! It does make a difference! 

On my FACE
Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Liquid Foundation in Beige
Australis Liquid Concealer Pen in Light Beige
MAC MSF in Medium
Face of Australia Translucent Powder
MAC MSF Blush in Hang Loose
MAC MSF in Candlelight
Sports Girl Oh My Goddess Bronzing Powder

On my LIPS
Rimmel Royal Gloss in Candy (refer to swatch above)
MAC Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick
( I had it on in my first and second photo below)

*please ignore the gross sleepy look*

I chose a simple black dress since I decided to go colourful with my eye make up.

Gaga's puffy sleeves is absolute love!

Dress from Valley Girl/ Stockings from Malaysia/ Heels from Charles & Keith/ Ring from DIVA

Hope you guys enjoyed the quick FOTD (and the blog-torial) and the outfit of the day!

What's your favourite "outside the norm" colours combination?
Would love to get some ideas and inspiration. :)
