You can imagine the big smile on my face when I saw the sample on display at Sephora:
In order to achieve this simple, monochromatic look, I started with a primed eye:
|Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden|
Then, using a large shadow brush, I applied an even color wash of 79 to my entire lid just to the brow bone.
Using black pencil liner, I traced my upper and lower lid lines:
|HIP Color Chrome Eyeliner in Black Shock|
Then I layered black shadow over the liner to smoke and set:
|MAC Eyeshadow in Carbon|
Using gel liner, I extended a wing on the outer corner of my upper lid line:
|Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting DramaGel Eyeliner in Blackest Black|
I curled my lashes and applied mascara to finish:
I also used it on my cheeks as blush, but be warned, this blush is extremely pigmented to the point of being over pigmented. You really only need a few particles to blush your cheeks and because the color is sooooooo intense, it's a little difficult to apply evenly. Practice and experimentation is key. Personally, I prefer it as an eyeshadow.
