DIY: The Lavish Eye

In an old Sephora catalog... I found a makeup-job that made my cold, black heart grow three sizes that day. It was a lotta eyeshadow (which I love) and a lotta faith in my application skills (which I sometimes have-meaning faith, not skill). My mind, body and soul were up to the task: Recreate that look!

Um... I don't want to toot my own horn (and rarely will so brazenly) but.. beep.. beep. My inspiration picture is in the bottom right corner, just below my imitation of it (above). Given the fact that I pilfered the style by merely looking at the image (no instruction), I think it came out pretty, stinkin' well.

So of course, I had to go out to celebrate the fact that I really, really can do drag queen makeup!

I grabbed my red-headed Sister.


{my sister has virgin hair... and it shows. Undyed and oh so purty}

Put a cocktail in her hand


And we had a grand night sipping spirits fireside.


Three cheers for Sisters, fireplaces & eye makeup!

How long did it take to re-create it? It looks like so much hard and precise work, wow!! And... I now have a question, what's your natural hair color since your sister has such a light shade of red? Just curious... Don't think I've ever read this on your blog?
