Monday morning and the coffee’s on the brill…

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
Rimmel Lycra Lash Extender

    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?

    Rae,This looks very pretty. Understated, but still elegant. The blending is flawless!

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