Orange, Blue, and Green all over featuring Sugarpill Lumi

I have recently decided that duochrome eyeshadows are my new everything mostly because I am lazy and you can make them look really cool and complex with minimal effort. Then I realized I still hadn't used my Sugarpill Chromalust loose eyeshadow Lumi! Lumi is a white shadow with blue and green sparkles which are brought out more prominently when used over a dark base. I thought it would be fun to try layering Lumi over an orange base since orange is the complimentary color to blue.

My orange base for this look was Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour in Fierce & Tangy and I smudged it with my finger to the outer half of my eyelid. Next I patted Lumi on all over my eyelid. I used a teal eyeliner under my eyes and extended out in the corners (obvs). I can't remember if it was my trusty tealish Jordana liner in Sea Green or Urban Decay Junkie. I think these photos look stunning, but I don't remember loving this look in person - a lot of sheen (duh, what was I expecting, right?!). Sorry I'm not sure about all the details; I wore this look a few weeks ago!!

Products Used

- Urban Decay Primer Potion original primer (HG for now)
- Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour in Fierce & Tangy
- Sugarpill Lumi
- teal eyeliner
- Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light (under my eyes to conceal!)
- Maybelline Eye Studio MasterShape Brow Pencil in Blonde

Do you like this look? Do you wear loose eyeshadow often? I bought some excellent samples from Darling Girl Cosmetics, but I don't think I can be a loose eyeshadow kinda gal in the mornings when I don't have a lot of time.
Give me all your loose eyeshadow knowledge!
