This look wasn't supposed to look like a tropical bird. I had intended on doing a navy/bronze look but it was such a hot day that I thought I lighten it to aqua/gold/copper, lol! I like how it turned out except my eyebrows are growing out like crazy again. Being Persian gives you amazingly shaped eyes and eyebrows, plus long lashes in most cases. But on the downside you need to reshape/Tweeze your eyebrows a lot more often. This should be taken care of tomorrow. My mom is my eyebrow girl and she'll fix it for me.

Btw, tomorrow is my mom's 50th birthday. I cannot believe she's turning 50, she looks so freakin hot still! I wish I will be like her when I'm her age. We sorta look alike already. We have very similar eyes/eyebrows. She's just fairer than me. Here's a picture of my gorgeous mommy with my husband:

    OOoooo...it's neat how you have the splash of blue in the inner corners! This actually gives me inspiration to try some different shapes/color placement than I have been...I sort of fell into a rut.

    Thanks Shayla. I do both vertical and horizontal placement. But I like to experiment with highlighting different areas now :)
