Shimmer Overload

I was bored the other day after I returned from school, which was my last day & I was only there for an hour to go to my last art class and recieve my graduation cap/gown. After I got home I decided to use some makeup products that I recieved a few months ago from the contests that I had won with Tknokitten & Stillglamorus on YouTube. I had a lot of Glamour Doll Eye as well as StillGlamorus Cosmetics, Spell Cosmetics (which I am very impressed with, btw), and some Barry M Cosmetics to use....

I wasn't too happy with how this came out but I figured i'd post it anyway. Pretty much all of the pigments were shimmery, especially the GDE ones, so that's why I named this "Shimmer Overload." Shimmer doesn't photograph well so it was very difficult to get good photos.

Which are easier to blend, in your opinion

(matte or shimmer eye shadows?)

Old look-BBB

"Bon Bain Bonnard" from Lush . A lot of people asked how I created the "splatter" effect. I used a wide, flat paint brush dipped in pigment & moisturizer (which acted as a 'mixing medium')and did flicking motions with the brush. And also I used a Mac shadestick for my liner. I've been wanting to do another look using this "splatter" technique but with different colors...Will do eventually.
