FOTD – Alice in Wonderland Palette (again)

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 27 - 2010

A mostly cool-toned FOTD bar a hint of peach on the lids.

It’s crazy how much of my eye makeup actually disappears when I open my eyes…. which kinda begs the question, “Should I walk around with my eyes shut?”


~ Max Factor Second Skin Foundation in Creamy Ivory (thanks Jen!)
~ Stila Sheer Pressed Powder in Light


~ Urban Decay Drink Me, Eat Me on the lid (from the AiW palette)
~ Urban Decay Vorpal in the crease and outer ‘V’ (from the AiW palette)
~ Stargazer Cake Liner in Brown on the lashline
~ YSL Singulier Mascara in Black


~ ELF Runway Pink with a slick of…
~ …MAC Please Me ontop.

  1. Gorgeous Look :) I am so sad I never got the AIW palette :(

    “It’s crazy how much of my eye makeup actually disappears when I open my eyes…. which kinda begs the question, “Should I walk around with my eyes shut?”” ->>> tell me about it, i feel i put eyeshadow and it instantly get covered by my overhanging droopy lid, which is why i spend most of time doing silly heavy makeup and super high crease so that it can be seen when my eye is open.

  3. I really love your eyes in this, I’ve been neglecting my AIW palette the last couple of weeks and I’ve been buying far more many lip colours that have taken my interest instead- you’ve reminded me to go back to playing with eye colours as well.

    I have exactly the same problem with eyemake up!

  5. Rae says:

    Oh, this is so pretty!! And I think you *should* walk around with your eyes shut, if your makeup’s this pretty 😉 (Kidding! Then we wouldn’t be able to see those perfect peepers of yours, and that would be very disappointing.)

    I guess people will get to see it when you… blink?

    Same problem here! Hooded eyes are not fun in makeup. I noticed from doing my makeup and then non-hooded eyes friend’s makeup, that having hooded deep set eyes seem to give me a lot more space and room to do studd and tus I can have more colors and more space to blend, but that the end of day you barely even see it! Grrr…. Oh well. Least I’m not alone!

    This look is lovely! I’m going to have a go at recreating it tomorrow, hope it looks even half as good as yours! Fab post! xx

    You look so sweet with this makeup. As for the “issue”, well, at least you’ve got a lot more eyelid space to apply the colours. Have you seen my eyes?! ;D

  9. Anitacska says:

    Very pretty! I haven’t used my Alice palette despite spending days on to snatch one (or two ;)), but I will asap as you’ve really inspired me to do something with it!

    As for eyes, I have the same problem, so usually do higher crease and pack lots of colours on. Oh and blink lots! 😉

    My eyelids have been “hooded” (I hate that term… it sounds like my eyes are in hiding or otherwise up to no good) since the day I was born. The best eye makeup advice I ever got was to take my colour up a little bit higher so it looks more obvious on open eyes. Gossmakeupartist on YouTube has a great tutorial on how to do makeup that shows on a hooded eye; I love his techniques and get compliments every time I try one out, not to mention he’s a total babe. It takes a real man to be sexy in a purple smokey eye! You should check out some of his video tutorials if you don’t like the way your makeup “disappears” with your eyes open. Incidentally though, it’s not so bad… my entire upper lid disappears when my eyes are open, to the point that if I’m wearing eyeliner, you can’t even see that!

    I am soo feeling this look on you! it’s fantastic and kind of a tease until you look down and you’re like ‘oh damn she’s a firecracker!’

  12. Beautiful! You have the most stunning, creamy skin!

  13. What a gorgeous fotd! Your skin is utterly stunning :) xx

  14. Gorgeous! I love how it’s so icy 😀 I may just recreate this someday soon!
