Breaking My Makeup Rut

It's been a long time since I've played in my makeup box. But I figured since the boyfriend was busy adjusting the color on the TV, I'd adjust the color of my eyes.
Normally I'm the more natural makeup girl with a dash of color on the lids, easy and fast so I can get to work on time. But since time happened to be a luxury at the moment, I decided to take advantage of it and do something a little more intense.
So after flipping through "Making Faces" by Kevin Aucoin,

(which is a bit like a makeup bible to me as most of his books are,) I decided to try out the Glamorous look from page 60. It was actually very easy except for rimming the inside upper eyelid which took me a really long time and makes my eyes water like mad! (Anyone with ways of making this easier, please let me know.)
But the effect makes me happy...

I didn't use the recommended red lip since I was headed out to teach a ballet class and a face full of makeup seemed like a bit much but it would be nice for an evening out. But I will be trying this look (and others) again.

But this has officially taken me out of my makeup rut and I'll give myself a few extra minutes before work to try something different.
