look of the day - more tumblr inspiration a day late!

Hi everyone! So this look was actually done yesterday, but I didn't get a chance until today to write up a post.

There are always so many beautiful pictures on Tumblr from which to draw inspiration and I saw this one and knew I had to try it.

The eyebrow was the most challenging part. I have a naturally high arch in my brow, but it's not noticeable when I don't fill in my brows because my brows are short. This made the whole covering the brow issue a lot harder so you'll see that my brow is much thicker than the one in the picture.

I also considered using more black eyeliner on the upper lid to finish up the look, but I usually remove my makeup right after taking photos because as much as I love dramatic makeup, sometimes walking around the house in it is something I don't want to do. I had a battle to the death with makeup remover, coconut oil, cotton swabs, and cotton pads against Urban Decay's Perversion eyeliner the day before, and I decided I wanted to go easy on my skin whilst doing this, so all I did was a quick swipe of the waterline.

Because this was quick and I only did it on one eye, no full face photo for this one, unfortunately! I used the brow erasing technique featured on Beautylish, which you can find here.
