Since I'm a visual person I hardly ever remember the album title but I just remember what the album art looks like.
A while back, Queen Alle jokingly suggested drawing beauty inspiration from a nudibranch, and I had entirely forgotten about it until I happened upon this little beauty in my Instagram feed:

Um, HELLO, yes!

I started by taking the vibrant orange shade in my Viseart Editorial Mattes palette on a fluffy blending brush and blending it back and forth from the crease to just above it.

With a stiff blending brush, I dipped into the darkest blue shade in that same palette and worked it onto the outer third of my lid and crease winging it out. I took that same brush and shadow to create another soft wing shape just underneath to mimic some of the physical attributes of the Nudibranch.

Next, I took the darkest purple shade in the Morphe Picasso Palette (12p) and applied it to the center of my lid, blending it back into the blue and leaving a third of my lid blank.

I added a bit of vibrant purple from the Viseart palette to the blank space leftover.

With an angled liner brush, I applied a thin line of gel liner across my upper lash line and flicked it out gently within the two soft wings I created with the blue shadow.

I added a bit of black gel liner to the outer third of my lower lash line and then smudged all along that line with the vibrant purple shadow from the Viseart palette. I also added matte white shadow to my brow bone to highlight and then added a shimmery ivory shade to the inner corners of my eyes.

A coat of mascara on the upper and lower lash line completes the look.

Here's another view.
I added an orange-poppy toned blush and a nude lip to finish every thing off.
Here are my favorite looks from last week:

I don't have flights to touch up after or spend time in cross-town cabs reapplying makeup.
