Pink Panther goes to Hollywood!

I've been toying with the idea of creating and naming a look like this. I love pinks and purples (especially together), and I was watching something the other day and the pink panther song came on. So I decided to dig through my stuff and come with a look and name it after the pink panther. I threw in some sparkles and a bit of purple to glam it up a bit. The sparkles represent the jewels he's always lookin for, and the purple is because sometimes in the drawings his outline looks a bit purpleish. Hence I came up with the name *Pink Panther goes to Hollywood*! Let me know what you guys think and I hope you enjoy!

*See this link for code for the 120 palette
I started off with my Urban Decay Primer Potion (as usual). I started off this look by applying Urban Decay's cream shadow in Sphynx on my lid . Sphynx is a light baby pink with loads of sparkle and shimmer. I applied 3 layers (allowing it to dry between each layer) to build up to a nice opaque pink shimmer color. I then took the color I2 (a matte bright pink) from my 120 pallete and applied it to my a crease and blended up. I then took the color I-1 (a darker shimmery pink) and applied it to my deep crease without blending up much. I wanted the matte brighter pink to still be seen quite a bit above the deep crease. I then took a mix of J6 and J10 (2 beautiful purples) and created a really high cut crease, I then brought it around to meet the outer corner of my eye. I  carried this color all the way around to meet my inner corner as well. Basically creating an outline of the entire pink parts of the eye. I then continue with the same colors and smudged them into my lower lash line and connected the purple on the bottom with the purples on the top. I did not want to blend any of the purple into the pink much because I wanted a stark cut between colors. I then added L7 (a creamy white) as a highlight under my brow. I then took my gel liner and lined my upper lash line only, winging it out just a tiny bit. Lastly, curled my lashes, added mascara and filled in my brows.

I moved on to my face and applied my elf primer using my hands and then my foundation as well. I then applied my blush and my finishing powder. To complete my look I applied my lipstick and gloss.
