FOTD: Life without eyeliner... no life at all.  I did this look last week and attempted to try something sort of new.  For some reason, a black based eyeshadow paired with a chocolate brown without eyeliner seemed like a really good idea in my head, but not so much upon application.  Especially with the lack of blending.  Talk about an off day.

-Quo lipgloss in Dreamy

I can't say this look is a success but I will tweak it (and remember to blend) and make it a success!  For now I will just rest my weary soul and drift off into dreamland.


  1. I actually love blacks & browns together :-) I think it all depends on shape and blending! This look reminded me of this video from Pixiwoo, one of my fav tutorials:

  2. Gorgeous - I'm not bold enough to use my black eyeshadow as an eyeshadow. d:

  3. *lol* life WITH eyeliner to me is no life at all *rofl* no seriously, I suck at applying eyeliner and I admire anyone who is capable of drawing a straight line!
    But I think you did well, the black eyeshadow somehow replaces the liner!

  4. I think it's a matter of getting used to not wearing eyeliner! I tend to do it sometimes just to challenge myself!

  5. ARGH, life without eyeliner, nooooooo!!!! Actually, I quite like how this look turned out, you don't need eyeliner because of the dark colour closest to the eye.

  6. I have never used black shadow as a liner- I tend to want the defining looks. But I have always loved the smoky look it gives. It looks nice in the pics- I like it!
