LOTD: Selena Gomez inspired

I've really been kinda smitten with the video for Selena Gomez's "I Love You Like a Love Song"....not because I like the song....but because I'm in love with the purple eye makeup she rocks in the beginning of the video.

So, I thought I'd try my hand at it. 

I used:
Concrete Mineral's Electric Eye Primer and NYX Jep in Milk 120 Palette Random Medium Purple (lid)
Sugarpill Poison Plum (crease) and Bulletproof (outer V)
Revlon Vintage Lace (highlight)
Concrete Mineral's White Rabbit (inner corners and inner third of lashline)
Milani Liquif-eye eyeliner, black
L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara

Selena has something fairly glittery and sparkly on the inner part of her lashline.  When I want sparkly on that part of my eye, I usually grab Sassy Mineral's Merlin's Ball.  I tried this with Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Transformation Potion.  What I got was a very opaque, metallic silver...which is good to know if I ever need that color...but not quite what I wanted.  Instead, I overlapped White Rabbit both wet and was sparkly-er than my original plan but not quite right either...and of course none of that cool sparkle/pink shift that this shadow has showed up on the camera :(

Note to self...pick up some glitter liners when I have money again.

My inspiration

Today is the very few remaining hours of my vacation.  I'm back to work in 3 hours and back to school by the end of the week.  It's been fun, but I think I'm ready to get back into regular routine again.

I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer so far...thanks for stopping by :)

Man, I want her glasses! I love this look - the shape is really nice and the lower lashine/corner is really cute too.

Man, it can be really frustrating to try to recreate looks but you've done a spot on job. Hope you enjoyed your vacation!

@Meredith Jessica Thanks! I knew I wouldn't be perfect, but it was fun and I was happy with how it turned purples :)
