FOTD - Frankenstorm Mask

So, it appears that Halloween is going to be tanked because of Hurricane Sandy aka Frankenstorm.  I live in one of the areas that's going to be heavily affected by the storm.  So while I still have power and internet, I took advantage of the situation and did a Halloween FOTD.  My plan was to use Paperself Under the Sea corner lashes to amp up the look, but I had no lash glue.  I also didn't drop-out my brows because I had no safety glue, and used my brows to plot the shape of the mask. So, this mask is sort of underwater inspired.  I recognize that it's flawed, but I profess no excessive technical skill with makeup. 

Oh look! It's me in a poorly done mask!

The outline of the mask was done freehand, with a fleshtoned pencil.  Then for a base Urban Decay Eden Primer Potion was used for the central area of the face, and Demoltion 24/7 Shadow Pencil was used for the edges and blended together.  Then matte purples, blues, greens and red were blended haphazardly to achieve the watercolor inspired gradient.  Eyes were lined using Eyeko Skinny Eyeliner in Black.  Eyes were further accentuated with Sebastian Trucco Angel Face Holographic Palette. 

This is just an awkward angle, but now you can see the lid detail.
 The rest of the face was kept simple.  Foundation was NARS Sheer Matte in Punjab.  Cheeks were lightly contoured with Illamasqua Ambition Blush.  Lips were Wet n'Wild Matte Lipstick in 902C with Naked Lipliner blended at the outer corners and Urban Decay Glide On Cream Highlighter in Moonshine for a lip highlight.  I think the next time I will carry more of the purple base further in, the streaky-ness on the edges was not an intentional effect, but it adds to the watercolor look I unintentionally was going for.
