brown smokey eyes with touch of blue, take 2

if you think this looks familiar, yes, it’s a remake of the same look i did a few weeks ago. i wasn’t too happy that the blue didn’t stand out in the previous look. it does look brighter and more intense this time but unfortunately it wasn’t picked up by the camera.

eotd - smokey brown with blue with l'oreal color riche quads in absolute taupe

i used the same eyeshadow quads from previous look, both l’oreal paris’ color riche quads – absolute taupe and emerald conquest.

to make the colors more dramatic and intense, i did more works for the base.

on my lids a did a few layers of color riche le smoky pencil in brown fusion – pencil in and blend, pencil in and blend. i tried not to blend it out too much yet the color still faded to light brown, which didn’t achieve the dark brown base i wanted. with absolute taupe quad, as before, i divided the eyes into 3 parts – 2nd lightest color at inner 1/3, mid tone in the center and darkest color at outer corner.

on lower lashline, the same pencil used above was used at outer 1/2 of lashline, smudged out with the darkest color from above quad. i also added a white with color riche le kohl in immaculate snow to inner 1/2 of lashline. this did intense the brightest blue from emerald conquest quad.

it was a bad choice using the same brown pencil to line my eyes. it disappears into the eyeshadow. maybe i should’ve used gel liner or something black to make my eyes stand out more.

still trying to keep my lashes product free until they’re fully grown.

more dramatic smokey eyes look

as i said, i did achieve the bright blue i want but it wasn’t captured by the camera. i look quite different with color focused on the inner corner. i rarely do this kind of looks. this is a look which i believe look better in younger women who has really smooth skin around their eyes. i have too much fine lines in the area and it eccentuate them. but it’s fun doing something different.
