Tennessee Vols look!

It's FOOTBALL TIME IN TENNESSEE!

Sorry. Had to get that out.
Being a past UT student and devoted football fan (despite our past couple years of playing like crap- thanks a lot, lane kiffin).
ANYWAY,
the best time of the year is upon us and today is our first game.
Hopefully we won't lose :/

In honor of my beloved team,
I created a look using our school colors of orange and white!
I will preface this by saying I was totally indecisive with what I did and kept adding to it until I was finally happy with it.

First,

So I found this to be way too plain,
therefore I shaded over the white in the corners with orange:

I hesitated to add any eyeliner initially because I thought the look was already pretty bold,
but it soon became clear that it looked naked without it. So I finally added that:

There! That's better.
I love the simplicity and brightness of this look.
It's nothing fancy, but it still packs a punch.
I'm not sure this would be something I'd be brave enough to wear to a game,
but you never know ;)

I used:
Sugarpill's 'Tako' in inner corner & brow bone
Sugarpill's 'Flamepoint'
Covergirl liquid eyeliner in black
Covergirl Lashblast Volume 


What do you guys think?!
Go Vols!!

  4. I would like to see this with more of an ombre effect instead of so harsh.

    1. agreed. This is not how I usually prefer to do looks because it does feel harsh and naked in a way. However, it's what I ended up liking and sticking with for this particular look.

  6. This is so lovely! I love orange eyeshadows~~! I think I mentioned that I am not a football fan, but I still love that you did this with that inspiration!

  7. This is great! You don't see colors like this every day, even in Knoxville now that the season has started =p. And especially not as well blended. Maybe your penguin challenge helped you with the whites ;-).
