I've packed my "angry eyes"

Haha, if you've seen Toy Story 2 as many times as I have, you know that line!  I didn't know what to call this so that's the best I could do!  I really haven't been wearing much makeup, as I usually just throw a little bit on before I walk my daughter out to her bus stop and that's it for the day.  And also, I don't know if skin changes every 13 years or something, but my skin has literally been showing me how much it hates my guts.  Yeah, it's been awesome.  I say every 13 years because the weekend of my 13th birthday was when I discovered that my skin likes to do its own thing.  And it showed me that same thing this past week.  So I've been giving my skin a bit of a break.

Today I haven't really been in the best of moods (at least I can admit it!) and I haven't been wearing any fun makeup so I really wanted to do something a little darker and more dramatic.  All I knew is I wanted black, not a sexy, smokey black, but an angry black.  So here's what I did
I've got my angry face on haha and this is super heavily edited.  I played around a lot with the black and white threshold.

I was going to wear false lashes but I couldn't find my lash glue.  I swear I have to get a new one every time I want to wear false lashes because somehow I always lose it.  Oh well!  

I wasn't really meaning for this to be a cut crease but that's just how it worked out.  I didn't so much have a plan, I just kinda went with it.  I used tape to make my line on the outer corner harsh.  Then I put down a layer of NYX jumbo eye pencil in "black bean" and I used Inglot 350 P on my lid (a rusty, purpley color).
Then I used NYX "Black" shadow, obviously, for the black.  And the colors above the black are all colors from the 88 palette.  The color on the inner corner of my eyes is Inglot 393 P.  I used Bobbi Brown gel liner in "Black Ink."  And I used L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara layered on top of L'oreal Extreme Volume Collagen mascara (hey, I had to try to make up for the lack of false lashes!).  

I watched Meredith Jessica's tutorial yesterday (which you can, and definitely should, check out by clicking RIGHT HERE!) so I have to let her know that the inner corner of the bottom liner was inspired by her!  I love how it makes looks seem more dramatic.

I did a decent amount of contouring on my cheeks using the ELF blush/brozer duo.  And I used Revlon "Nude Attitude" matte lipstick because I wanted the focus to be on my eyes.  

Do you guys ever do looks based on your moods?  I usually do the opposite of how I'm feeling, like normally, on a day like today, I would wear next to no makeup.  But I really wanted to do something since I've been so boring.  Thank you all so much for checking this out!  Sorry it took me so long to post!!
