Recreation of: Lisa Frank Penguins By vintageortacky

I was watching through Vintageortacky's videos and found a look I just had to try and recreate it for myself. I absolutely adore her and she is one of the few youtube guru's that got me started with this blog-but even more so to be more confident in using bright colors! My first attempt at this look went horribly wrong. But that didn't stop me, so I took it all off and started again. I think it turned out quite nice the second time around! So anyway, here ya go!

*See this link for code for the 120 palette

I started off with my Urban Decay Primer Potion. My first eyeshadow color I used was the light blue from my physicians formula on the inner 2/3rds of my eye, on the outer 3rd I used Urban decay's electric eyeshadow and blended it with the other. I then took my new (awesome!) 120 eyeshadow palette, first edition. I took color J8 and applied it to my crease and blended it up, making sure that I got a nice opaqueness and to make sure I bring it up evenly on both eyes. Above that I took the color I2 and blended it down into the purple and up towards my highlight area, in the video I watched she layed the pink color down first-but I found that to be a bit too muddy when I blended them out. Finally I took G9 as my highlight and blended it down into the pink to get rid of any harsh lines. I then lined my upper lash line  with a marker style eyeliner pen and used a gel liner to line my lower waterline. Under my lower lash line I applied Urban Decay's electric eyeshadow. I used a tiny concealer brush and got it wet so the color would apply more brightly. To finsih off the eyes I curled my lashes and added mascara, and filled in with my brows with a matte brown eyeshadow.

To finish the rest of my look I applied my primer along with my foundation directly after. I then swept some blush from the apples of my cheeks up towards my temples. To complete my overall look, I applied a lipstain and gloss. I first applied the lipstain and allowed it to dry to a matte finish--they say you can wear this alone, but it's quite drying, so I went ahead and applied the clear gloss that came with it.
