♕ The Pokémon Series ~ Jolteon ♕
{Eeveelutions Mini Series}

New episode of The Pokémon Series! After the water-type eeveelution (Vaporeon) and the fire-type eeveelution (Flareon), today's the turn of the electric-type eeveelution: Jolteon!
This is going to be a pretty short post - this look is my least favourite, I honestly posted it just for the series' sake XD Plus, appearances aside, it's very easy two make and it won't take me long to explain how I achieved it!

Jolteon, the Lightning Pokémon.
Type: Electric
"Jolteon's cells generate a low level of electricity. This power is amplified by the static electricity of its fur, enabling the Pokémon to drop thunderbolts. The bristling fur is made of electrically charged needles."

Jolteon's main colours are white and yellow, as you can see - and since I don't own any real yellow eyeshadows I think you can imagine my struggle to create this look XD I had to replace it with gold shades and it worked nicely, actually - but I'd still like to try it again with a proper yellow shadow! 

The keyword of this look is "spikes" - as Jolteon has bristly and spiky fur - so I wanted to achieve that particular effect. To do so, after the usual eyeliner step, I grabbed two eyepencil - a gold and a white one - to design the spikes. I started from the inner corner and slowly moved outwards - switching colours where needed. Once I was happy with the pattern, I applied the eyeshadows to fix the pencils (and to add more colour to them). I applied a pale yellow pigment on the inner corner and a gold on the outer corner - both of them were shimmery; on the lid area, instead, I applied a white matte eyeshadow - trying not to mess up the spikes (easier said than done!).

On the lower lid I kept it simpler and softer: I did apply both pencils and shadows - but no spikes. On the brow bone, I applied Antique White - again being very careful not to blend away/ruin the spikes.
The hard part was over, and I moved to the final steps. I applied eyeliner - which I kept very thin but I winged out a lot, and I also made pointy on the tear duct area; I applied a black eyepencil on the waterlines and a black eyeshadow on the lashline. Lastly, I applied false lashes and mascara - and I was done.
