Manly 144 Eyeshadow Palette & Inspired Look

I was going through my closet and found this jumper that has this interesting color combination across the stomach portion. The jumper is brown but part of the top portion and the stomach area has stripe detailing that consists of a Burnt Orange, Army Green, Aqua Blue, Dark Brown, and Cream while all contain gold tinsel.

I have mentioned in previous posts that inspiration for a makeup look can come from any object. Mine just so happen to typically come from clothing. Upon seeing this jumper and its color scheme I was immediately inspired to create an eye look. I decided to reach for my Manly 144 Eyeshadow Palette which I have never used. I actually ordered this because it has a bottom layer which consists of 24 full sized Manly shadows that have been compared to the Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Colour Palette. I have the Lumiere Palette and am interested in finding out whether the Manly shadows are comparable. The rest of the Manly 144 Eyeshadow Palette consists of two trays that are similar to the 120 Eyeshadow Palette 1st Edition.

I figured this would be the perfect palette to create this eye look since the 120 Eyeshadow Palette contains many shades of the same color. For example this palette has about 20 different shades of green. Anyway I opened my palette and went to work on creating this look. It's so funny that when I find that I am really inspired it is almost like being in a trance and I just start creating.

Here is how this look came to be:

First I primed my eye from lash line to brow bone using bh Cosmetics Eye and Lip Primer (skin tone creamy primer that smooths out).

Next came the eyeshadows...

First 4th of the Lid - Dark Matte Orange (Top Layer of the palette, 6th row, 4th color)

Second 4th of the Lid - Army Matte Green (Top Layer, 3rd row, 8th color)

Third 4th of the Lid - Aqua Matte (Top Layer, 1st row, 7th color)

Outer Corner - Brown Matte topped with Brown Shimmer (2nd Layer, 6th row, 7th and 10th colors)

Brow Bone - White Matte (2nd Layer, 1st row, 1st color)

Inner Corner - Gold Shimmer (Top Layer, 5th row, 8th color)

Eyeliner on Top of the Lid - Avon superSHOCK eyeliner in Blackened Metal

Eyeliner under the Eye - Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Zero

Same shadows from above applied in the same order under the eye on top of Zero

Waterline - L.A. Colors Jumbo Eye Pencil in Sea Shells

Milani Marbleized Baked Eyeshadow #606 Drench in Gold applied across all shadows on the lid to create gold tinsel like effect

Mascara - benefit they're Real!

Brows - e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit in Light
