Pictorial: Rockstar Venus Eye of The Day

Pictorial time! This one is for the eye of the day that I posted here from June 15th. I've dubbed it Rockstar Venus, I originally was going to dub it Half Baked Rockstar, but I didn't know how that would pan out haha. 

I ever, so slightly made two changes to it, only because I couldn't find one product (it went MIA) and I accidentally grabbed a different mascara. Neither one really make that big of a difference though. 

So lets start!

Step 1. Priming the eye. I used Milani's Eye Primer. Let it dry for thirty seconds (or more), otherwise if you apply shadow too quickly without letting it set, there will be creasing (I learned the hard way when I first tried it).

Step 2. I started off applying Urban Decay Half Baked (mine is from the Get Baked mini palette) to the center of the eye lid, avoiding the outer and inner corner. Then doing the same to below the lower lash line. This is entirely personal preference though. You can take Half Baked or anything close to it all over the eye lid if you want.

Step 3. Next is Urban Decay Rockstar (from the Mariposa palette), starting at the bare area of the outer corner, then blending it into the crease. I actually trailed it along the crease so that it would almost go into the inner corner. This is just something that I like to do when I'm using a gold-ish color, I just use a smaller brush so that it isn't blending into the gold near the inner corner. Back to the outer corner, I slowly start to build up Rockstar and blend it into Half Baked, bringing it closer to the center of the eye lid, but ending it before hit reaches there. And again, bringing Rockstar down to the lower lash line and blending it into the Half Baked that is there.

Step 4. Taking Urban Decay Crave (from Naked Basics), I only blended this into the outer V. Then repeated the same to the lower lash line, only blending it into the very outer corner there.

Step 5. Next is the inner corner! Using Urban Decay Venus (from Naked Basics), I blended this up into Half Baked, and ever so slightly into the edge of Rockstar. Repeating the same process to the lower lash line.

Step 6. (Not Pictured) Blending Walk of Shame, which matches my skin tone, from Rockstar up to the brow bone to get rid of any harshness above the crease. I normally go back and forth between Walk of Shame and Rockstar above the crease in order to get the right amount of smokiness that I want.

Step 7. Lining the eyes. Originally I had used e.l.f. cream eyeliner on the upper lashes, but I couldn't find it, so I just smudged Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on eyeliner in Rockstar into the lashes, then lined the lower water line with it as well.

Step 8. (not pictured and optional) Curl lashes! I actually did this when I originally did the eye look, but didn't do it with the pictorial.

Step 9. And this is where I grabbed the wrong mascara, no biggie though. I used Maybelline The Falsies Volum'Express Big Eyes Mascara (lower lashes) and Wet n Wild Mega Impact Mascara for the upper lashes (2 coats). And then done!
