Victorian Disco House Points EOTD


Bear with me - I'm not yet any good at using loose eyeshadows. I believe this is only my second EOTD using them, and the first was way back around the time I started this blog!  I'll admit I need way more practice.  The red shade's patchiness, especially, is entirely due to my application (I couldn't really tell until I looked at the enlarged photos - it's quite difficult to see in person.  The husband even gave it a thumbs-up before I took pictures).  Any tips on working with loose shadows, guys?
I wanted to see if I could make a look I like using all four colors from Victorian Disco's House Points collection (buy here).





Items used -
Stila Prime Pot in Taffy
Victorian Disco House Points Collection: Helga, Salazar, Rowena, and Godric
Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Liner in Perversion
Urban Decay 24/7 Pencil Liner in Covet (waterline)
Maybelline Illegal Lengths Mascara

Can you tell I love Harry Potter?

  1. So much fun!

    Some tips:

    - Fyrinnae Epoxy is meant to be fabulous for loose E/S, especially glittery ones.
    - Using a damp brush can make application smoother, colours more vibrant and give better adherence.
    - Putting loose E/S on instead of swiping helps prevent fallout.

    Hope that helps a little! Do you think you'll be buying more loose E/S in the future? I must admit, I love mine!

    1. Thanks for the tips, Nazia! Sometimes I see swatches of these on other people's blogs and I wish they'd say whether they were swatching damp or using Fix+, and what they're swatching over! I definitely need to get some Fyrinnae Epoxy. My technique with a damp brush sucks, because I did apply these damp. Maybe too damp?

    2. Well Sarah I still think that you did a marvelous job! I only use lose eyeshadows (from MAC) for painting so unfortunately i cant give you advice!

    1. The best way I've found so far is to wet my brush, squeeze it semi-dry in a towel, dip it in the pigments, and press it on the lid. It's quite a slow process!

  7. I love this! I was meaning to take part in VDC's big 40% off sale that started yesterday but a few shades I really wanted were sold out by the time I was at a computer. I might have to just pay full price at their new site, though, because they just look so pretty!
