I am very excited to be posting my very first eye make-up look challenge!
After considering my “menu”, I decided to kick off with slightly something different, dare I say, rather dramatic, although quite simple: a gold base with shadowy, geometrical black outline.
I really enjoyed the effect when the eye is closed. Now, I am not sure how much I like the pokey line once my eyes are open (which will be most of the time, right?!). As mentioned on the book, you must have perfectly plucked and groomed eyebrows if you are wearing this look, otherwise it can appear very messy. I also think it would look great with some false eye lashes!
I really enjoyed doing it, and would maybe consider for some occasions. I had a little bit of a problem with the line that pokes out, I drew it with the MAC’s 212 brush and shaded with the 231, after a failed attempt; it is quite hard to get the definition needed for the contrast.
Products I used:
- MAC brushes: 212, 231, 208 and 239;
- Barry M dazzle dust in Gold;
- MAC eyeshadow in Carbon;
- Studio eyeliner in Gold Ingot;
- YSL Volume Effet Faux-Cils mascara;
- MAC brow set (now discontinued).
Level of difficulty:
So, what did you think of the look? Would you wear it?
