Equinox Sorceress-Experiment

Usually I am absolutely shart at applying black eyeshadows. They make me nervous because I can't seem to blend them as well as I like. I've never done a fully black eye but I did want to experiment a bit to see if I can ever pull off a dark lid color. I admit I stole this idea from the lovely Wendi of Make-up Zombie. I loved her most recent look where she used a black base with dark eyeshadows on the lid. It looked so pretty on her that I just had to copy it!

What I used:

Fyrinnae P.E.
Fyrinnae e/s in Darling Misfits (A beautiful pink with teal sparkles applied in the crease.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Sorceress (My favorite black with multi-hued sparkles used on the lid.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Meerkat (My oldest Fyrinnae shadow, a purple with gold sparkles applied over D.M.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Nijiro (Used to highlight the upper brow bone.)
Estee Lauder e/s in Pink Ice (Sparkly sheer light pink used on the inner corner of the lid.)
Almay liquid eyeliner in black
Wet n Wild concealer stick in Very Fair (Applied on the waterline.)

Nyx round lipstick in Nyx

Oh! I have to tell you guys! While out with my friend I discovered a few eyeshadow palettes from the Wet n Wild Dreamweaver collection. I've been looking for this collection since July so I was surprised when I discovered three palettes. Happily two of the three were doubles! That means a giveaway will be coming up soon! I also discovered a 2010 Holiday palette tucked behind sale items. I was so shocked. I thought they had all been snatched up. So I tossed that in my basket and hummed happily to the cash register. I shall be posting swatches of the Dreamweaver palettes soon!

    Anyway this is friggin BEAUTIFUL. I'm going to have to recreate your recreation of Wendi's look (makeupception!) because I love everything about it. And this is the second look I've seen today using Sorceress, so that is definitely going on my wishlist.
