Cosmic Love

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

This look was inspired by "Cosmic Love," one of my favorite Florence + the Machine songs! Like I've mentioned in a previous post, I purchased a new palette, and have been playing around with it. This is the second look I've done using this palette. I played with the purple colors since I'm always very weary of purple eye shadows. They tend to look very muddy in my opinion. But I was quite pleased with the blend-ability and color pay off!

Someone on tumblr told me it reminded them of a unicorn! I'm flattered to say the least. I told her, now that I thought about it, it also reminded me of The Donnas' music video for "Fall Behind Me."

But alas, Cosmic love...

I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

And this is The Donnas video I was referring to!
