BFTE Orchid and Naked 3 EotD

This was inspired by the look that Phyrra did here (and here is her YouTube video tutorial for it).  I loved the way BFTE's Orchid eyeshadow looked with the Naked 3 palette so much, that I decided I NEEDED Orchid.

I used in this order:
  Urban Decay Naked 3 palette
            -- Limit (matte dusky pink) in the crease and a little above the crease
            -- Nooner (matte plummy light brown) in the crease
            -- Strange (satin cream) under the brow and to blend out Limit
  BFTE Cosmetics loose mineral eyeshadow in Orchid (sparkly light purple) on the lid
  Tarte Skinny Smolder Eyes pencil in Onyx on the lower waterline
  Maybelline Full 'N Soft Mascara

This shows the sparkliness of Orchid.)

Obviously, I didn't copy her look step for step as this was just inspired by it, and I was trying out Orchid for the first time.  (I didn't add the dark color to the outer corner or the shimmery color to the lower lashline.)  I love the combo of the colors so much and the way it looks on her, that I probably will do it identically next time!

Do any bloggers/vloggers inspire you to try specific looks?


  1. Orchid is so amazing. I can see why you NEEDED it, haha.

  2. This is VERY PRETTY!!! Color of the year. =)

    I'm having a giveaway over on my blog that I want to invite you to!

    Have a GREAT night!

  3. Omg! That Orchid is so pretty! It looks great paired with the other colors!

    1. The warm dusty pinks make an interesting contrast to the cool purple.

  4. Ooh, purple shades are so pretty with your eyes! Love how you've paired the ultra shimmery shade with more subtle tones from Naked 3. Great look! xo
