Copied Saimese's January 2011 Series: 8th Post!

I really liked Saimese's look using the Revlon palette which I own but haven't used in a while and I'm going to thank her for giving me a reason to use it again!  I copied her look as best as I could using some of the same or similar products.  You can view her EOTD and how she did it here.

I used NYX's Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk as a base as she did.  I used a shimmery white shadow from an Icing's eyeshadow palette.  I used the navy shade from Revlon's 12 Hour Eye Shadow in 11 Sultry Smoke as she did and since I don't know of Annabelle cosmetics, I used wet n wild's liquid eyeliner which looks more matte like in her photo.  I was so happy with the end result.  Pictures don't do it justice because this looked even more amazing in person.






The reason why I say it looks better in person is because more navy is visible.  For some reason the flash really picked up on the shimmer of the white shadow.
Without flash
 THANK YOU SAIMESE!  I had fun copying your look and love your technique.

You can call me Saim :)

I am SO flattered. Glad you liked the look and were inspired to use the palette once again.

Thanks for being one of the commenters on my Jan 2011 Series. I've had to limit the amount of time I spend online because as you know, this month I've been spending more time applying eyeshadows, taking pics, editing, & blogging daily. I read all the comments, but doing this series + carrying on with other things in my life hardly leaves me with time to reply to comments or read as many blogs as I used to. So my apologies for the delayed response.

You have really nice eyes & the navy showed up beautifully on you! Let me know when you try the white, pink, & purple look too ;)

@ Saim: OMG did I spell it wrong the whole time!!!!! Ahh I swear I've been dyslexic. I've been doing everything in opposites somehow when I'm reading and speaking. It doesn't help that I do posts at 3 in the morning. I'm sooo sorry. Gonna change it all now.

And I totally understand about being busy and keeping up with posts. I thought I was going to be posting a lot more but with school and work, it's hard.

I will definitely have to try the white, pink, and purple.
