Makeupbee was awesome enough to let me try their tutorial creator first, so I did this look for it. Want to see how I did it? Check out my picture tutorial here: [link]

I also tried Lime Crime's new Aquataenia palette, I love how shiny it is!

The colours look really well together, even though it seems there are a lot of them at first :)
I especially like the gold-turquoise combination. Oh! And the pearls! So unique and white :) Do they actually stick on and stay?

They do actually! Though it's one time use. After that I have to add eyelash glue to make it stick again.

if you do your make up this way and go out, about how long does it last?

Pretty much all day! As long as you don't rub it or sweat like crazy! Everything is very solid!

Ah....I'll have to invest in some of the products you use, then. I have eyes that are kind of set back far into my head, so the eye shadow on my eyelids almost always fades and rubs off on the part above my eye....if that makes sense. basically, i have DEEP ass creases lol.

Have you ever tried Lime Crime's primer? That stuff is like glue! It holds things like crazy! I'm sure it would help!

Actually I hadn't heard of lime crime til just now. Thank you! I will definitely see about getting some of that. Might have to order it online.....I don't know if I've seen it in any of the beauty supply stores we have here.
