FOTD - Not So Bright Eyes

So today I wanted to do the current Revlon's look challenge, "Bright & Bold Eyes".
I do have some nice bright eyeshadows, so I thought "Hmmm, no problem. I can do this!", but then I quickly realized I didn't have any Revlon brights. Duh.
(To me, Revlon is more of a "neutral color" brand, not brights.)

I almost felt like going downstairs and buying a new bright Revlon color, which would have made me a sure sucker for this type of apps on Facebook.
Finally, I came to my senses (after I saw piles of eyeshadow in my box, of course) and settled with this not-so-bright color, Violet Starlet.
(This is a single shadow from their pearl line. a medium pinkish purple with pretty shimmer. See the product picture below.)

It came out almost smokey, a definite fail, but I decided to do a FOTD post anyway since I spent too much time into this. ;p

This is a rather simple look as most of my FOTDs.
I just darkened the folds with kohl eyeliner and laid this eyeshadow color over the lids.
I added a teal color eyeliner to balance the pink color and also to match the contacts I am wearing today ( NEO Queen Aqua ).
On cheeks and lips, I am wearing muted mauve-y wine colors. :)

From another angle
Ah, more importantly, I got a haircut yesterday. 
It was way overdue since my last one was in May.

Products used for this look
(Do you see the Chafing gel from Monistat? I used it as face primer. It works very well and this is for another day's post. ;p)

Thanks for looking.
Have you done any of the Revlon challenge? :)
