EOTD~Crocus Inspired~

9:51 AM

Christine from Temptalia, whom I absolutely love, has added to her awesomeness by creating a weekly challenge page. This could not come at a more perfect time since I want to be more creative instead of just doing a bunch of product reviews all the time. I also want to work on my skills, which I will admit, need a lot of work. So I am going to consider this a mini journey of sorts. This weeks challenge is to draw inspiration from spring flowers. After looking through gorgeous options, I decided on the Crocus flower. I love the coloring and variation. The combination of white, violet and orange really speaks to me. And it is something different than solid pinks or reds. In some cases, the orange looks more yellow, so I went with a color that combined the two. I used the Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV to create this look. I'm not in love with the end result, but like I said, this is a mini journey that I want to share. I will probably try this again later in the week. And I am going to try to base each look I do based on a different kind of flower.
I used four shadows by Urban Decay: Zephyr(true white), Gravity (shimmery purple), Bender (pine tree green) and Baked (gold). I applied Zephyr as an all over shade and I applied Baked in the inner corner and spread about halfway across the lid (I wanted to keep the outer portion white). I applied Gravity in the crease and used Bender to line my lower lashes.
I wanted to keep the look soft and delicate, much like the flower itself. 
Oh, and in other news. I applied to be a contributing author for a site called Interactive Biology, and they accepted my application =D Now I will be writing an article for them once a week. I have always wanted to do writing for a site, so this is a dream come true. Especially since I am still a student. So once I get started, I will post links to my articles, which will be on topics related to anatomy and physiology. Don't worry; they won't be boring =) Part of the site's greatness is the fun atmosphere.
