As always, we start with the base. Donna has great skin, with some lovely freckling, so we just used a tiny sweep of Lily Lilo powder foundation as a base and left it at that:
Then we got to work on Donna's eyes. I used this palette:
Mainly concentrating on the second row from the left there, I used the second and third shades down as a colour wash all over the eyelid area, using the slightly darker shade as a contour in the crease:
The peachy-orange really brings out the green shades in Donna's eyes, yet it's not too in-your-face. However, I'm disappointed with the quality of the shadows themselves, the colour pay-off is pretty poor, and even attempting to foil with them doesn't improve it very much at all. I was hoping for a much more dramatic look. Still, the colour wash is pretty, and works well enough, just not quite well enough.
Then, onto the liner. For this, I used Urban Decay's liquid liner in Roach, which is one of my favourite shades of all time, it's a gorgeous burgundy-brown shade that's flattering on almost everyone, as it's less harsh than black. For a really dramatic look, I always draw the liner in a tiny right angled triangle shape right next to the lashline:
Here's how the eyes looked when I was finished, we used two coats of mascara, and I think this is a great dramatic look. Yes, it could have been a bit more dramatic, but overall I like this look. Then I made a mistake, attempting to make up for the lack of drama in the orange eyeshadow, I thought a bright orange lipstick would be in order. All I did then, was gild the lily:
Actually, the lipstick itself is a great shade for Donna (it's a Stila one, I've forgotten the name of, but I'll find out), it's just too much with the winged liner. We toned it down later with a more neutral lip, and it looked much more in balance.
Thank you, Donna! I'll not gild the lily next time, I promise.
