Monday morning and the coffee’s on the brill…

Monday, November 2, 2009

Just eye shots today. They’re a little blueish, because I did this early one morning and for some strange reason, the light in my room is always blue-tinged before around 11 or 12. I quite liked this look — it’s easy to do, and day-appropriate due to its softness.
How-to:

Cover lid with a red-toned base overtop primer. Sweep a burgundy-violet over the whole lid, then layer a darker, more plummy colour in the outer V and a sheer gold on the inner 1/3. Blend well! Mimic these proportions for your liner, and create a wing with the darker colour.
Pat pigments sheerly overtop for a more metallic finish. To clean edges and hilight under the brow, use a clean brush to sweep a skin-toned matte around the perimeter of the shadow and on the brow bone.
Curl lashes and apply mascara.


Used — colour:

MAC Fresco CCB
Urban Decay Primer Potion
Senna Intrigue, Smolder, and Bronze Age
Fyrinnae Polar Bear
Mac Naked and Mauvement pigments
Lancome Positive

Used — “boring stuff”:

TheBalm‘s TimeBalm concealer in Lighter Than Light

    Ooh I love it!! What a great color on you. Plus, I've seen 2 people wearing Polar Bear today! Arg, added to the list of pigments to buy!! Personally, I like how to breakdowns because then I can see where you wore each color. Otherwise I'm like "uhh which one is polar bear?" you know?

    Karen: Aww, thanks hon =) Nothing bothers me more than harsh lines where they shouldn't be, so I blend the heck out of everything!
