Animal Instinct: Artistic Eye Makeup

Guys this is my entry for Cynthia's Artistic Eye Makeup Contest. The prize is the Too Faced Natural Eye Palette and I'm in lust with it.
I've recently been obsessed with Animal print as evident here and here so its a no brainer that i chose to do it for my eye makeup too! Ok so I call my look "ANIMAL INSTINCT" and here it is, followed by a rough tutorial. The best part about this look is that even though its dramatic, its not too OTT so you could easily wear it to a party without looking ridiculous coz you'll only see the full animal print when you close your eyes. :)

Finished look- Animal Instinct

Trial on my hand

Bare eyelid

Apply primer

Blend primer and dust loose powder over it to set it

Give a wash of shimmery copper e/s all over lid

Pat some gold e/s over lid and dark shimmery brown over crease

Draw leopard spots with a black eyeliner

Fill orange e/s into the leopard spots

Create a dramatic winged look with black liner

Blend everything , touch up, clean up-done!
