Double Colors...So Intense

Hello, hello, hellooooo! I am back safe and sound in my home state, which is heavenly.  Apparently Minnesota is now the most hipster state and the Twin Cities are the gayest cities in the states.  So, we've made a lot of progress since I started college :)  My lovely mother took me to the show "Next to Normal" today which was fabulous.  Everything was wonderful-- the plot, the singing, the acting, the lighting design, the set, and so on.  I am now obsessed and suggest everyone try to see it (it's touring) or at least listen to the soundtrack.  It did win a Pulitzer and a bunch of Tony's, so yeah...get on that.
   The protagonist in "Next to Normal" was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which turned out to be schizophrenia...hence "bi-colored" eye? No, that was a bad connection, BUT, it is true I am obsessed with one of the new summer trends (and it always seems to be a summer trend), the two colored eye.
     I've been trying a bunch of color combos and so far my favorite is purple/blue and purple/green, but I'm continually trying out new combos.  Here's the look I wore for today's musical:
 First, I used my typical Neutrogena Concealer and brushed some Urban Decay Razor Sharp Ultra Definition Finishing Powder over my entire face.  Highlighted with NARS Multiple in Cococabana and blush was MAC's Powder Blush in Tippy.  
    I used Benefit's Stay Don't Stray Shadow Primer and then layered Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Ecstasy with MAC Eyeshadow in Aqua.
 I lined my top lid with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil in Lust and winged it out, but decided that it was too much of a muted purple for this springy-summery look.  I layered so UD Liner in Asphyxia (one of their new liner colors--a super pretty light purple) and then lined my bottom lid in UD Liner in Electric.  I find it hard to be able to wear blue shadow/liner with my skin tone, but this seems to be a perfect color blue for me and just a hint of it rather than my entire eye.
 I mascaraed and then lined/filled my lips with Hot Topic's Lip/Eye Pencil in Magenta.  They are such a great deal and come in such a wide range of colors, i'm obsessed! My lipstick was some Lancome lipstick that the name had rubbed off of, stress.  It was a dark pink with little flecks of blue sparkles.  Any ideas on the name? Anyone?
Meet and slightly blend both colors if you decide to add a cat's eye like I did.  It adds the right amount of connection to the colors. 
Hope you enjoyed the two color look.  What are your favorite colors to blend?
