♕ The Pokémon Series ♕ Eevee ♕
{Eeveelutions Mini Series}

Finally introducing and lunching today my new makeup series - The Pokémon Series! I've always been a Pokémon fan since I was little - majorly thanks to the anime, as my parents were opposed to videogames of any kind so I never got to play their games. Now I've been playing Pokémon Go since August, which feels like living the Pokémon Trainer dream... It was time to join my Pokémon and makeup passion together!

First things first: shout-out to Darkness The Taste of Ink who had a great Pokémon series too a while back! Her series has inspired me to do my own Pokémon inspired looks since then - it took me years, but they're here at last!
I decided to start this series with a mini series (yeah like a matryoshka XD) dedicated to Eevee and its evolutions (thus nicknamed eeveelutions), because they're among my favourite Pokémon ever! *_*

I know I am a liiiiiiittle bit late with this mini series, since it dates back to October when I posted all the Eeveelutions looks on my Instagram - but you know, as the saying goes... Better late than never! ;D

Eevee, the Evolution Pokémon.
Type: Normal
"Eevee has an unstable genetic makeup that suddenly mutates due to the environment in which it lives. Radiation from various stones causes this Pokémon to evolve"

Of course I had to start with Eevee, the base form, that has the ability to evolve in different Pokémon due to its irregular genetic code. It has a brownish fur, a fox-like tail and a fluffy collar - this and the tip of its tail are creamy - elongated ears and brown eyes (though is some pictures they appear to be purple-coloured).

To represent this little cutie in the best possibile way, I decided to o for a simple brownish look with dark brown eyeliner and creamy details - shaping the outer V blending as its bushy tail. Nothing crazy actually, the outcome is quite wearable! 

I started off with eyeliner as always, then I applied a goldish-brown pigment all over the lids - both upper and lower. I was afraid it wasn't the right shade (I don't have a lot of browns in my stash as it's a colour I really dislike) but, much to my surprise, it turned out the be perfect!
I packed it on the lid and then I blended it into the crease (using Narciso by NABLA as transition shade) and outwards on the outer V. Then I drew the creamy tip by using a beige pigment - and I used it wet, both to enhance its pigmentation/brightness and to achieve a sharper result. I did my best to recreate Eevee's tail (I also added the zig-zag pattern where the beige meets the brown) - unfortunately it barely showed up in picture ç_ç

I applied the same pigment on the inner corner (this time to represent the fluffy collar), this time keeping it soft and smooth.
Then I made a dark brown eyeliner (as I thought black would be too "harsh") mixing a dark brown pigment with some drops of Fix +. I lined my upper lashline with a classic, not-too-thick, winged out line. Must say, I really liked the outcome!
I lined the lower lashline too with the same pigment - but this time I used it dry, so it turned out softer and lighter. I did not apply any eyepencil on the waterline, leaving it nude.
I completed the look with false lashes, mascara, and Antique White as my brow bone shade.
