Glamour Doll Eyes Fabulous Glam Girl FOTD

Because Vanessa from Glamour Doll Eyes turns 25 tomorrow and because she's having a sale on her webstore, I decided to showcase more of Glamour Doll Eyes gorgeousness.

Of course when I was taking the pictures, I only managed to get three and then I lost the light. It seems that it's going to rain and the clouds just blocked all the light I had. I don't like taking pictures indoors because the light is way too yellow and it distorts the colours completely.

Glam Girl is a very vibrant and strong purple with a little shimmer. This may not surprise anyone but I love this purple!
Fabulous! is an almost matte teal.
Sterling Glitz is a diamond glitter. It looks white in the baggie but you don't get much colour. Instead you get this beautiful diamond glimmer on your lids.
Pinky Swear is a bright, shimmery pink.

I usually hate when people combine blue with purple (I know, I know, I have done it myself) but last night I woke in middle of the night (I ain't kidding you) and decided that I had to try Glam Girl with Fabulous!, no matter what.

Fabulous Glam Girl FOTD

Purely Cosmetics Skin Smoothing Foundation
Meow Cosmetics Top Cat Finishing Powder (over foundation)
Too Faced Shadow Insurance (as a primer on upper lids)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Pinky Swear (as a blusher on cheeks)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Fabulous! (all over upper lids up to the crease)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Glam Girl (outer vee and crease)
Glamour Doll Eyes eyeshadow in Sterling Glitz (over Glam Girl and Fabulous!)
Aromaleigh eyeshadow in Petunia (as a highlighter below brows)
MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack (as a liner on upper lashline)
Fyrinnae eyeshadow in Wicked (patted wet over eyeliner)
Dior Diorshow mascara in Black
Fyrinnae Lip Lustre in Glitter Kittiez

When I lined my eyes with Blacktrack, I was pleased with the results but it sort of looked flat. I looked around and saw a jar of Fyrinnae's Wicked and I decided to pat it wet over the line I had drawn. It looks a bit like raven or crow feathers, the shine they have. Also, Wicked pairs up nicely with Glam Girl and Fabulous! because it's a strong purple with teal shimmer. I also used Petunia just below brows but only on the inner part and partly blended it on Glam Girl. I chose Petunia because it's an off-white with pinkish sheen.

I used Sterling Glitz to blend in the colours but also to add a bit of sparkle. I love the result, it softens the look up a bit. The sparkles catch the light beautifully, it really looks like I have diamond dust sprinkled across my lids.

Unfortunately, this was the only full face photo I managed to take before the clouds rolled in the sky. Bleurgh. Pinky Swear makes a great blush. I love the overall look, I'm a bit surprised how soft I look with such strong colours.

Because my eyes were so strong and colourful, I lightly patted on Glitter Kittiez. The colour is much stronger if you apply it more but I wanted to have that 'bitten' look.

As I posted before, Glamour Doll Eyes is having a sale with samples 50% off so this is a great opportunity to try some new colours out!

Sorry I couldn't take better photos but I can't change the weather :(

What do you think of the look?

I like what you did with Wicked.

Thanks :) I'm very plased with what I did with Wicked, it gives the black line a nice sheen.
