My Little Pony Friendship is Magic EOTD Series: Rarity

Hellooooo beauties! Today I have two fun eye looks to share with you, but the catch is that these are from wayyyyy back in January! I had these grand plans of doing a bunch of makeup challenges along with all the nail challenges, but simply don't have the ability to photograph my own face very well [I know a lot of people manage to use their iPhones, but wattttt? I'm still lemming the Canon T3i something fierce, and then I'll be able to take photos of my own face ALL OF THE TIME]. Anyhoo, the rest of this piece is left as it was written almost a year ago. Enjoy!


I've been wanting to do some sort of themed makeup series to improve my techniques, stretch my creativity, and use all of the eyeshadows I've stockpiled. I couldn't think of a good inspiration that hasn't been done too much already on makeup blogs.... But! Finally! I settled on My Little Pony Friendship is Magic as the perfect inspiration. For the first in the series, I did two different eye looks inspired by the pony Rarity!



The first look is a sort of simple blue shadow + dramatic cat-eye liquid liner mix. Rarity actually has light blue colored eyelids in the cartoon, and sort of cat-like eyes so it was pretty easy to mimic 'realistically'! I patted the light blue shade, Lime Crime Parasol, on just my lid and very lightly blended it out. Then I used a fluffy brush and blended a little bit with the gold/blue veined shadow from the Wet n Wild Baking a Cake palette. I intentionally wanted this one to look a little more harsh and 'one color'.

Look #1 Products Used
- Urban Decay Primer Potion original primer (HG for now)
- Lime Crime Parasol on lid (from the China Doll palette)
- gold/blue veined shadow from Wet n Wild baked 'Baking a Cake' palette
- Maybelline Eye Studio Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner (which I kinda hate, tbh)
- Hard Candy Glamoflauge in Light (under-eye concealer)
- Maybelline Eye Studio MasterShape Brow Pencil in Blonde
- Maybelline Dream LumiTouch Highlighting Concelear in Radiant (under eyebrow) 
- CoverGirl LashBlast Fusion (the purple tube) in 'Very Black'
- Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lash mascara in black



The second look is a lot more dramatic and interesting! I used almost all of the purpley shadows I own, though, so it's hard to recap efficiently - but I did my best in the 'products used' list below. The interesting thing about Rarity is that her hair has both red-toned purple and blue-toned purple depending on where her hair is curled. I wanted to reflect the two tones of purple and the light blue repeated in her eyelid and cutie mark in my eye look, so I blended them all together. And of course some liquid eyeliner because I both a) love it and b) needed it to be my most Rarity-esque!

Look #2 Products Used
- Urban Decay Primer Potion original primer (HG for now)
- Nyx Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk
- Lime Crime Parasol in center of lid (from the China Doll palette)
- Sugarpill 2am in inner corner
