After a two week hiatus from doing the Eye Color Pigment Challenges because of the holidays, I have returned with new vigor and commitment to learning different techniques, blends, and colors. The last challenge didn’t get much of a response in terms of comments and I thought of nixing this series altogether, but as a still new to the game eye colorist, I want to keep it up and hopefully get suggestions and feedback from other make-up enthusiasts and experts.
Today, I decided to go for a more sultry look by using darker charcoal colors mixed with deep plum and burgundy/brown. The result, I feel, is a great look that can go to the office and afterwards, to a dinner or event without missing a beat.
View the photos and let me know what you think!
I like the full look. Gunmetal is such a nice color. Is that palette still available at Sephora & how much is it?
I believe the palette was $59.00 when I purchased it in November at my local Sephora store. I heard they are sold out in the stores but you may be able to purchase them online via Urban Decay. Thank you for stopping by and commenting!
Damn that's hella pricey. hehe. I'll see if I can find it. Thanks & you're welcome Danni. =]
Hello (: I’m new to the art of eyeshadow, too! I like the colors you used, but may I suggest a more softer highlight color? I always read that a very natural highlight with minimum shimmer is best. Also, eyeliner and mascara always completes the smokey look (: I’m looking foward to seeing your future looks! Take care.
Thank you for your suggestion, I may try a softer more subtle color for my browbone highlight next time. I nixed eyeliner this time in lieu of doing an under eye shadow app instead. I thought both would be too much. LOL. I appreciate your feedback and suggestions. I am still new to this whole eye make-up thing but learning has been fun!
I like the look on you very nice. It works for you.
