It's a rainbow eyes kinda day

I'm not really sure why but I wanted to do something fun today.  So I went for rainbow eyes.  When my husband saw me, he was like, "are you feeling artistic today?" haha.  I told him I felt like a bird of paradise, thinking he knew what that was.  Then we were talking and he said something about going to the store and I said, "If you lose me, you can just ask if anyone has seen the girl with the rainbow on her eyelids" and he said, "yeah, or the girl who looks like one of the birds from paradise."  Haha turns out he had no idea a bird of paradise was a flower, he thought I literally meant a bird you'd see in paradise.  So that made me laugh.

So here's my rainbow/bird of paradise look.

Sometimes my camera does this cool contrast thing by accident where it makes my skin look super light and the background really dark, but I like how it shows my eyeshadow.



I used a lot of colors for this look haha.  I used NYX JEP in "Milk" as a base.  Then I used Inglot colors: AMC 60 (yellow), 366 M (red orange), 407 P (golden orange), 384 M (green), 372 M (robin's egg blue), 371 M (bright blue), 351 M (light skin toned color).  Then I used Ben Nye pigments in Cherry Red and Sun Yellow, NYX ultra pearl mania in "lime," and then I also used a bunch of colors from my 88 palette (which I can't remember because I just dabbed in whatever color I thought I needed haha).

I think this is a fun look, it definitely gets people's attention.  I saw people looking at me (which I'm not a huge fan of haha, I always get all self concious when I see someone look at me for more than a second).  I didn't realize we were going anywhere when I started doing this.

I'll throw in a picture of a bird of paradise flower just in case you don't know what they look like
I think they're really cool flowers.  

That's my look for today!  Hooray for two posts in two days!
