Basic Eye Design Chart

This is a wonderful chart for anyone needing assistance on how to place shadows. This chart was provided by a wonderful Specktralite, Makeup_wh0re (Mandy Lou)! Be sure to click on the pic to enlarge!


Peeps, I'm trying to put in some work... this fotd is a challenge I'm doing. The new smokey eye palettes from MAC are soo friggin hot that I want to buy both of them. But! I know that I have comparable colors or can achieve a similar look with stuff I already have. Hence, this fotd.. I'm really trying to convince myself that I don't need them *wah boo hoo!*
face:
MAC mineralize skinfinish natural pressed powder in medium dark
NW30 and NC30 concealers
cheeks:
MAC Sincere blush
Clinique Shimmering tones powder in Bare (?) to highlight
eyes:
Milani silver bullet on inner lid and lower inner lid (inner corner)
MAC Cork on outer lid
MAC Mothbrown on crease and outer v
NYC black liner on top lid
NC30 concealer as highlight
Loreal voluminous mascara
Styli Style bronze liner on lower lid

Kia, a big thanks for posting that chart. Since I was in the house for five weeks, I totally forgot how to apply eye makeup. How crazy is that!
