FOTD: Monochromatic Blues

Here's a look I did the other day for class. I received MAC's Shimmermoss eyeshadow in the charity bags from the December Estee Lauder Warehouse sale (my friend had went and picked one up for me) and I haven't really used it so I decided to try it out in a look.


USED:
NARS Smudgeproof e/s primer
MAC Soft Ochre paintpot (as base)
MAC Shimmermoss e/s (on lid)
MAC Deep Truth e/s (in outer third of lid)
Annabelle Lagoon e/s (in outer V/crease)
Wet n' Wild Brulee e/s (as highlight and in tearduct)
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
L'Oreal Million Lashes mascara
MAC Night Maneuvers e/s (to fill in brows)

MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW40 (on under eyes)
MAC Mineralized Skin Finish Natural in Medium Plus
NARS Deep Throat blush
MAC Harmony blush (to contour)

MAC Hug Me l/s
Revlon Super Lustrous l/g in Pink Whisper


I feel like I'm doing a lot of the same looks and same techniques, just with different colours, know what I mean? I feel like I really need to branch out in my techniques and colour range. I feel like I do the same thing all the time: colour on the lid + colour in the outer third/crease + highlight.

I think doing monochromatic looks it's just easy because I don't have to worry about, does this look too out there? Do these colours go well together?

What do you think?

Pretty colours! I know what you mean about using the same technique. I usually get stuck doing the same thing as well, but since I started my January 2011 Series, I had to try something new or else it would look too repetitive. Check out the look I did on Jan 29th & the 15th. Not sure if you've tried something like that, but I'd love to see what you come up with if you do. I was surprised at how much I liked it when I did it the first time. It def stands out than other repetitive techniques.
