I had five minutes left to my morning routine today to slap on some eye shadow and this what I came up with.
I wanted to try out some new goodies I got in the mail (holds head in shame). Rock & Republic is a clothing line that had an expensive cosmetic line. All of their products went on a ridiculous sale recently on Hautelook. The sale was great ($8 for a shadow that originally cost $28!). Ordinarily I would not have considered their products in the least. The quality is really good and the size of the pan is a bit larger than Makeup Forever.

Get this look:
I started out by putting my go to Tete-a-Tint on my brow bone to act as a transition color. I then put Vanilla under my brow as a highlight. (Pictures of these shades are in my earlier posts.)
I applied MUFE #137 in my crease and blended it up. This shade is a pretty medium plum shade with a hint of mauve. It has a slight sheen to the finish. I darkened my outer crease with R&R Wicked which is deeper plum shade. For this post, I formed my Outer V with Mac’s Carbon eye shadow (matte black). To the naked eye, Wicked was dark enough for the look, but it wasn’t coming across well in photos.
For the lid, I applied INGLOT’s #28. This shade looks so gray in the picture, but it isn’t. It is a pale icy blue. Once applied, it sometimes looks pale lavender depending on the light. (This shade is in the first INGLOT palette in my INGLOT swatch post. Once you view it around other shades, you can see the blue.)
