EOTD If the weather is bad... go tropical!

Today has been a very cold, dark day. It's not raining at the momment but it could start pouring anytime! So I decided I had to put some make up on and cheer myself up a bit.

I've always been a sucker for yellow eyeshadows and it had been quite a long time since I last used mine. Since yesterday I saw these gorgeous Evil Shades swatches on Phyrra's blog, I got inspired to take out my yellows and palettes and play with make up a bit.

First I did the same look on both eyes, but one was matte and the other shimmery. I decided to stay with the matte one and did the other eye and the rest of my face afterwards. Morgana Cryptoria's Azalea Blue was the best possible lipstick to pair it with, and a light touch of blush on my cheeks finished the job.

I've only taken pictures of the eye, sorry about the lack of face ones but my skin is crazy at the momment, all dried out and cracked, but super oily at the same time. Uhhhgg, GROSS!

@darthangel Thank you!! It's a gorgeors orange, a bit hard to work with, but gorgeous!

@Krista Thanks! It really brightens a gray day. Try a yellow that follows your tones (whether you're warm or cold skinned ;) ) I like Kryolan's yellow because I find it's quite neutral and suit most people. Plus, it's HUGE it will last a lifetime.

@Phyrra Thanks!! Do you think I should have used an electric blue liner on my lower lash line? I kinda regret not doing it :S
