The Penguin Make-Up Challenge Day 1 !

Hey there, beautiful people!

As I announced yesterday, today starts another challenge that I'm super excited about, because it's a MAKE-UP challenge... oh yes! Finally something else on my blog :D I thought this would be a great opportunity to get into make-up a bit more and see what you guys think about it :)
So let's start!

This is the challenge banner:

As you can see, the challenge was created by 3 very talented and nice ladies:
 Kaki, Alexis and Mimi!
The first challenge is to use only black and white! Not so hard for me, because you can create some great smokey-eyes with black and that's what I did ;) 
WARNING! Picture Spam ahead! :D

And here is a close-up:

For this look I used (eye-makeup only!):
Catrice Eye Shadow Base
P2 Intensive Khol Eyeliner 020 Cool Alaska
Essence Kajal Pencil 01 Black
Essence Quattro Eyeshadow 07 Over the Taupe (white shade)
Essence Eyeshadow in 53 Pop Eye
Essence Liquid Eyeliner Waterproof in black
P2 Limitless False Eye Lashes

And one last pic :) 

After I finished the look (it took me forever!) I twittered that "..I look like a stripper, but I kinda like it" :D I really do, I love it! But my question to you is:

Would you wear this eye makeup even during the day, or just for a night out? Or is it just too much for you? 
Please be honest, I would love to know :D

Just btw ... I adore my camera! It makes such beautiful pictures! Thanks again mom :*

Check out the other ladies, who are participating in this challenge :)

  8. You look amazing, you're so beautiful. I would definitely wear something like that on a daily basis, specially in the winter, when my make up is always dark.

  10. hahahah stripper!!!!! Nah I think with things like this, as long as you're classy and not actually a stripper, you can defos style it out! Your eyes look so amazing and cat like. I want to try it out!!!

    1. Haha :D Yes, I totally agree with you ;) And thank you! You should try it out!!

  11. Wow, you look like a model and a professional make-up artist at the same time.
    Did you used tape to make winged lines so sharp? I really admire your skills but for my face this would probably be too much because I don't wear a lot of eye make-up. Sometimes I 'play' with a champagne/shimmery eye shadow or I just use mascara but I concentrate more on the lips and use more lipsticks or glosses
    I hope you will have more make-up posts in the future

    1. Omg, thank you so very much! your comment just made my day :D
      yes, I did use tape for applying the eye shadow, then I removed it and added the eye liner :) I am exactly the opposite of you :P I always concentrate on the eyes... I sometimes even forget to do something with my lips =))
      And I will try to do more make up posts ;)

  12. Haha, you do NOT look like a stripper, Miss. Not with those pretty pair of lashes.

    It's so rare to see bloggers use other Essence items apart from the nail stuff so this post makes me happy.
