First EOTD on Manicurity!

A bit ago I asked if it would be cool to share some make-up here, and most people that commented said I can do whatever I want (ha) - so here's my first eye of the day look! I really liked this EOTD by Prettymaking and did some rainbow-y eyes inspired by it; I started out wanting to just use pastels, but then I dipped into my Sugarpill yellow and decided to make it a full on rainbow! Here's my look and the eyeshadows I used via Instagram; I don't have anyone to help me take pictures of my own eyes right now... But perhaps I'll be able to ask someone nicely to take some pictures of my eye later (can only imagine Boyfriend will be thrilled by that prospect).

Manicurity: Rainbow EOTD

I used a combo of Lime Crime and Sugarpill eyeshadows. I numbered the eyeshadows I used in the order I blended them across my lid and then down across my waterline (so in a clockwise circle starting from my inner eye) in the photo below.

Lime Crime Palette d'Antoinette - Royal Flush [1], Absinthe-Minded [4], Macarooned [2], and Ribbonesque [8] (I didn't use the silver on the end)
