EOTD: Warm Plum Eye Makeup

Remember when I said that I really wanted to use the theBalm Instain Blush in "Pinstripe" (reviewed here) as an eye shadow? Well I did, and here is the look I came up with. Also for the first time, I used some individual false eyelashes to spice things up, they turned out ok, a few are a bit little wonky, but overall I was quite happy with them, To see the other products I used and a nice close up of the look, click......
Middle of lid: Pinstripe Instain Blush from theBalm (reviewed here)
Outer corner: "Shameless Shana" from theBalm
Crease: "Caught in the Act Courtney" from theBalm (applied very lightly)
Inner Corner: "Luscious Lani" from theBalm
As always, I used the L'Oreal Lineur Intense Felt Tip Liquid Eyeliner to do a cat liner and then applied two coats of Fairy Drops Platinum Mascara (reviewed here). Then I stuck about five bunchs of individual lashes from Salon Perfect (Perma-Lash, Flair Short Black) to my lash line, starting from the middle of my lid (I think in person it looked a bit more natural). I also used Urban Decay's 24/7 Eyeliner in "Zero" to darken my tight line and waterline.
Oh just a side note, I don't know if the blush is safe for the eyes but it was fine for me. No staining or discomfort, it was just like any other eyeshadow too, very pigmented!
Thanks for popping by, cheers!
