Well, as you can see I've changed my profile picture to this look. I loved it so much, I hope you don't mind Emalove! Emalove asked me about this look and I did this for her.
The look is from a 1980's cartoom called Jem:
And my final eye:
But first a question to all of you.
I have usually 1 or maybe 2 "big" watermarks in the pictures I post. In my Profile picture I did a lot of little ones, which do you prefer?

Preparation & Face
I used Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2 in 1 mask as a facewash today with some StriVectin-SD eyecream and Clinique Repairwear moisturizer.
I then used Photo Finish as a primer with The Too Faced foundation over that. I wanted to not look bronzed for this look and kept it very simple today. I used some Sephora Concealing Blemish Pen on any dark spots and under my eyes. As an eyeshadow primer I used Primer Potion which will keep the colour amazingly well. I actually used two Sephora Brand FACE 25 Makeup Removing Wipes for Face, Eyes & Lips to take it off and still there was pink around my eyes, I finally took up my trusting Dior makeup remover to take everything off. (I can't walk around with Jem eyes all day can I? :P )

First I placed some scotch tape under my eye to place the first bit of pink with the definer brush under my eye. I did this first because I wanted the tape to be there the shortest amount of time.
At this point I took the tape under my eye loose a little and kept the rest in place. I then took some new tape and mede the bottom point.
I placed some tape against my eyebrow, to elongate the brow with the pink later on, I didn't place it on the brow hairs because then the tape won't stick to the skin and it's prettier to not have a harsh line here.
I placed some tape at the inner corner to the corner of the brow and made the edge of pink here. With the definer brush I placed the pink under my brow and took off the tape to see how it looked.
At this point I check if all the foundation that was under the tape is looking good or if I need to fix anything. I filled all the pink in with the definer brush. Make sure that there is no patchyness here, the colour should really be covering everything. I also took up the Angled brush with the black eyeshadow to darken my eyebrows and make them look more fake.
The funny thing I noticed at this point was if I held my mouth a certain way the point looked different, if I smiled it looked shorter etc, so keep this in mind when placing the point. I used JetSet on my waterline because it keeps all day and all night.
I curled my lashes and added mascara to the top and bottom lashes. If you want to you can even put a second coat of mascara on there. I didn't comb my lashes after the mascara.
Final eye looking down:
Eye when I smile a little looking much softer:
