Well, it really didn't work at all. It was embarrassing. I didn't wear it out in public of course, but I saw what a mess I made of it! Anyway, I took it as a learning experience and I am going to be brave and post pictures. Oh dear. It didn't even remotely resemble the ladybirds and was such a terrible waste of time. So embarrassing!
Admittedly, the camera did make it look quite a bit worse than it actually was, but it still looked as though I had two horrible black eyes. Obviously I was not expecting red to be a wonderful shade - I was aware that it wasn't going to be the most appealing look, but I didn't think it was possible for me to make such a mess. I had black in the outer corners but when I tried to blend it a bit it mixed with the red and went purple and awful.
Not only did the eyeshadow get out of hand, but the mascara I tried to use on my lower lashes (Maybelline lash stiletto) made my eyes look disgusting. Definitely an upper lashes mascara only!
|So here you can see that it is not |
looking too promising...
|Rocking the black-eye look|
|The only good thing about this?|
My upper lashes look pretty thick
|My eye appears to have changed colour |
compared to last photo!
|This photo looks a bit creepy!|
|Not the best quality but oh well...|
So, that is how it all worked out. Nevertheless, I am not going to try something like this again!
