The other day I was so ready to do my makeup. I was inspired, had a clean set of makeup brushes and I was ready to create... Almost always, I do my face makeup first & my eyes last, that was the case this day. After spending a good 20+ minutes doing all that I was ready to work on my eyes. Purple is one of my favorite colors and was what I was wearing that day so I decided on a purple smokey eye.
Halfway into the process, my eyes were so watery. I was using a couple products that I don't normally use, so I figure that was the culprit. I went ahead and wiped away all my under-eye concealer & just told myself I'd touch it up after I was done doing my eyes... WRONG! The watering only got worse, my eyes were burning & nothing was helping... It was obviously something I had used.
I couldn't even curl my lashes but I was determined to take a picture to show you the beauty of this look. Here's the "final" product minus my face makeup. I say "there's no such thing as wasted effort" because I was still able to share what I did even though I couldn't wear and enjoy this look. I plan on recreating it soon with some different products! This hasn't been my first time I've ever had to undo what I've spent so much time & effort doing, but it doesn't stop me. There will be more purple smokey eyes in my very near future! I I just have sensitive eyes when it comes to certain products...
