This is Swoon over both lids (first applied wet, then applied dry to set), and Uplift on my browbone as a highlight. Then I applied Villain with a square-edged brush below my lower lashes, with a little flick upward at the edge of my eyes, and above the outer third of my upper lashes.
Love It Because…
This just gets better and better. I wouldn’t wear this as a daytime look, as it seems kind of bizarre, but it can be glamorous in low light. Also, if your skin is anything like mine, the liner of Villain will blur around the edges as the hours past, just enough to keep it smokey sexy.
By putting some weight (i.e., a dark-toned eyeshadow, in direct contrast to a light-toned eyeshadow) on the lower edge of my eyes, I’ve emphasized the droopy, languid, bedroom-eyes aspect of this look.
You could substitute any medium-to-light toned color for Swoon, and have the same effect. If I wanted my eyes to look more round, I’d limit the undereye liner to the outer third of my lower lashes only.
I’m a coffee-fueled, hobby-addicted bibliophage who makes cruelty-free mineral eye shadows (inspired by novels). I’m usually in front of a screen (writing, reading, or gaming), but I’ve been known to emerge for geekery, good food, and dark chocolate.
