My Attempt: Smokey Brown Plum Eyes

I watch xteeener's youtube videos a lot. She's very creative and her tutorials are easy to follow *gulp*... Okay, I think it's really easy to follow, I guess I'm still so much of a newbie that I'm actually still struggling with blending and stuff. So anyway, here's my attempt to do the Smokey Brown Plum Eyes.

The Makeup I used:
Elizabeth Arden Glimmer Cream in Gold
2. Maybelline Eyestudio Quad in Banana Split
3. Cover Girl Quad in Berry & Cream
4. Max Factor
Masterpiece - Volume and Definition Mascara
5. Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner in Black (forgot to take picture)

I used the Elizabeth Arden Glimmer Cream as my base. And for my lid, I used the darkest purple from my Cover Girl Quad. The dark chocolate color from Maybelline Quad is the one I used for my outer crease. I also used the cream colored shadow with gold undertones from the Maybelline Quad, and I used it for my highlight.

The Outcome
Okaaayyyy, so I'm not really that disappointed but I'm not satisfied. I really think the eye shadows didn't blend so well. There are still these stubborn harsh edges that I can't get rid of. The eye shadows were not cooperating with me. =D

I tried so very freaking hard to blend it perfectly with my crease brush but it didn't seem to work. I don't know. Maybe, it was the base I used? Or maybe I should've used an eye primer first. Or maybe it's just really me. LOL. And oftentimes I'd really struggle to make both shadows on both eyes look even, especially the ones on the outer crease. They usually end up looking different so I have to like keep adjusting til my lid aches from the brush! x( But oh well, I'm glad I was able to do something like this. I was always afraid of blending shadow colors because I didn't know how to. I'm actually surprised I was able to do something like this. I know it's not perfect but I think it's not bad for a struggling makeup newbie like me. =D So that's it.
