FOTD: Rae Morris Exotic Eyes

A little while ago I bought the book "Make Up: The Ultimate Guide" by Rae Morris ... one of this days I'll get round to reviewing it for you, but for now here's my attempt at the Exotic Eyes look she does. I'll apologise for the fact that my blending/shape is nowhere near perfect but it's a loooong time since I attempted something this complex.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Foundation in 02 Ivory
The Body Shop Kiss of Colour Cheek Blush in Golden Coral (I LOVE this blush :D)
The Body Shop Love Gloss for Lips in 11 Raspberry Pink

High Voltage Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Pin Up (Yellow - all over lid and up to brow bone)
Sleek Bohemian Palette Eyeshadow in Sanguine (shimmery cranberry in crease/wing - see Lipglossiping's blog for details for the new names for this palettes/Sleek's plans to introduce names for all their palettes)
Sleek Bohemian Palette Eyeshadows in Neutron (black - outer v/wing)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eyepencil in Flipside (lower waterline)
Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Black Mascara
Rimmel Professional Brow Pencil in Black Brown
What do you think? I know it's a little messy but please be gentle :)
