AN EYELOOK INSPIRED BY.. MY SHOES

Last week I was browsing through my saved items on asos.com and I saw that these babies, that I already spotted a few weeks ago, were back in stock. Without much hesitating I Googled for discount codes and I found one for 25% off so I got them for £16,50 (they were  £22 - I don't know why they've gone up to  £25). They arrived on Tuesday and I love them so much! The colour is so special, I am obsessed with everything holographic. They look really good with pastel colours, which I'm obsessed with at the moment so I'll be wearing them a lot. I love matching things so I decided to create an eye look to match these shoes.




I wanted to recreate that pink-to-blue-to-purple with an overall golden glow effect. For this look I mostly used Urban Decay's Vice 2 palette. 



I started with a base consisting of Primer Potion with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. On the moving lid I dabbed a golden eyeshadow (L'oréal Infallible Eyeshadow in Gold Imperial) and I blended it into the crease. On the inner third of the eye I applied a shimmery medium pink (Coax from the Vice 2 palette) and I blended that into the gold. On the outer thirds of the eyelids I applied two shades of blue (Madness and Prank from Vice 2). I used Madness, an shimmery aqua blue, as a buffer between the gold and the blue. Prank is the darker brother of Madness, these shades work together like tea and cookies. I applied prank on the outer corners of the eyelids. I blended everything very well.
Because my look was lacking purple at this point (and there's definitely purple in my shoes!) I applied a little bit of a duochrome lilac eyeshadow -Betrayal from Vice 2- on the inner corners of my bottom waterline. On top I added a gold glitter eyeliner. On the very inner corners I used a little bit of silver eyeshadow -Shellshock from Vice 2- just because I like how that looks.
I drew a thin line using a black liquid eyeliner and I added several coats of mascara on top and bottom lashes. 

I didn't really define my crease but I used a highlighting powder -Catrice Prime & Fine Highlighting powder in Fairy Dust- and I brushed that very lightly through my crease as sort of a buffer between the gold and the highlighting shade on my brow bone (which is a matte off white eyeshadow as always).





I love how this look turned out. It's definitely not that out there as my shoes, but I don't even know if that's possible. These shoes definitely are a love-it-or-hate-it kind of thing and I'm OK with that. I love them, even though I got hate on the streets yesterday (I didn't even know people still did that lol).


Do you ever match your make up to your shoes/accessories/etc?
