My Third Half Assed Post (is that 1.5 Asses?)

If you hadn't noticed over on the left (whoops) right side with all my labels, I started a a Half Assed one which is compiling all these recent looks as I trundle through all my Suqqu eye shadow palettes.

Half Assed seems pretty accurate wording for how I am with this blog these days.  Thanks for continuing to come here to read and commenting!  I feel like I am not holding up my end of this bargain: you come and I write & take nice pictures!

Here's another Half Assed post.  I am now on to 06 Ginbudou, which is a beautiful non-taupe, non-brown neutral palette.  This is a beautiful colored set of a moody deep purple, charcoal grey and elegant gold. 

06 Ginbudou

In this closeup, I hope you can see some details despite the poor photo quality and dim lighting.  I used the white base all over.  The gold was used as the main lid shade and along lower lash line.  I used the charcoal on my socket line.  I then used the purple to make a thick (but applied lightly) along my upper and lower lash lines and added into my inner corner to add some depth and shape.

I used the THREE Flash Performance Liner in Prettiest Star (LE from Winter 2013) close to my upper/lower lash line to add some bright visual interest.
I resisted my normal urge to layer the shades and smoke out using the purple.  It gives a more delicate, but defined look to my eyes this way, which I am pleased with.  The overall shape is more rounded rather than the winged-shaped looks I've been recently doing.
I've picked up a lot of color on my face these past two or so weeks.  There's many softball games to attend, much sitting by the pool to do and much weeding my crazy looking yard to accomplish.  I have a lot of color in my skin normally (when pale or tan) and very quickly desaturate colors.  All the shades in the palette show up, but appear a lot softer than what you might see applied on a more neutral skin tone.  The gold especially was applied quite heavily, but you can probably see only a tiny hint of it.  I actually have a dip in this pan!
