FOTD: Ellana Eyeshadow in Orchid (purple frost)

I'm so dead tired from all the things that I've been doing lately, work, events, night outs with friends, household chores and taking care of the hubby (he's been sick lately). Don't get me wrong, I do sound as if I'm complaining, but I'm really not. I just think I need a little bit of rest... okay, that's a lie. Maybe a little bit more, like a week long rest with doing nothing but just blog. :) hehehe! :)

Today, I wanted to give life to such a ho-hum work day so I chose one of Ellana's brightest eyeshadows to play with, Orchid MPM. I only used one eyeshadow. My friends are often shocked when they asked how ome I pile up numerous colors on my eyes that it became a sort of challenge to pull of just a one eyeshadow look. Believe me when I say I found it difficult because I was so tempted in using Plush Romantic from Aromaleigh's Gothic Lolita collection to define my crease. Thank God, my dad arrived before I had a chance to do that. :)

The people at work were use to seeing bold eye makeup on me but when they saw this, they couldn't help commenting on it. In a good way, though. :)
