♕ Make Up Look ~ Ocean Waves ♕

Another graphic liner look today - I swear, the next one will feature a different technique and a more classical winged line XD
After the warm, fiery tones of my previous make up, which resembled a flame, I created a cool-toned look that flows like ocean waves. And of course I couldn't help but adding dramatic eyeliner - a double winged liner! Like, one wing isn't enough... Let's make two!


My idea behind this look basically was... Let's see how far I can goo with KVD's Tattoo Liner. I'm really enjoying this eyeliner, makes me want to try new styles and designs every single day *_*

So, for this look I designed a double winged liner - and each wing goes back towards the crease, staying parallel to each other. LOVE IT! Never thought it would so pretty.
Regarding the colours choice... Like I said, the previous look features fiery, red/orange shade - so I felt the urge to go back to my beloved aquas and blues XD I included some of GlitterTubes', of course, and there's a new entry too: I got some false lashes by Ardell (I discovered I have a retailer here, so I plunged into it XD). In today's look I used those I'm currently liking the most, the Wispies! Need to get a couple of pairs more...
The final look reminds me of the ocean waves, hence the title ♥


After priming my lid I applied an aqua shade all over my lid, as base colour for the lid; for this purpose, I used Atmosphere eyeshadow by NABLA Cosmetics (which I also applied on the first half of the lower lid). The create the soft crease blending I used Shark Bait eyeshadow by Makeup Geek Cosmetics, a beautiful matte teal shade. To add depth to the crease, I used a mix of two eyeshadows by NABLA, Under Pressure and Babylon (and applied this mix on the second half of my lower lid too).
I used Shore Thing by MUG as transition shade (I'm addicted to this eyeshadow! ♥), Zoe on my tear duct, Nocturne on my lower lashline and Antique White on my brow bone (all three are by NABLA). 
Then I applied the glitters, both by GlitterTubes: Minted on the upper lid and Splash along the lower lashline. When applying Minted, I made sure I was leaving enough empty space for the eyeliner - as I don't like applying the liner on the glitters.

Now let's get on to the eyeliner design - needless to say, I used Tatto Liner in Trooper by Kat Von D. As a first step, I traced the line as I normally do, starting from the inner corner and moving outwards, thickening the line as I went. I stopped before the outer corner and started drawing the second, lower wing, starting from where the lower lid meets the outer corner. The tricky part was drew the wing trying to keep in mind (and visualize) where the second one would go. I took my time, I didn't want to mess it up. When the lower wing was done, I went back to the main line and started drawing the upper wing; it was easier this time, as the lower one was ready and visibile. I left some space between the two, with I later lightened with Antique White, in order to make it more noticeable.
When I was happy with both wings, I added the curved design: I started from each tip and moved back towards the crease - following it, not getting into it. Tricky process one again, as I had to visualize where I wanted to place both lines when I was drawing the first one. I started with the upper one, this time, which follows the blending, framing it. The second and lower one is shorter, and closer to the crease.
It took me a while (and I mean it), but to me it was worth it. I am so proud of this eyeliner style *_*

Final touches: black eyepencil on the waterline, false lashes (Wispies lashes by Ardell) and mascara!
