FOTD: 3-Color Eye Makeup Challenge

Last month I swatched the three mineral eyeshadows  I received from Kira, and Tellie challenged me to come up with an eye makeup look that featured all three. After a whole month of diddling about, I finally found the opportunity to play around with the eyeshadows. Before I present the results, here again are the three shades and the swatches.

What I did was to use Charmed as lidwash on the inner 2/3 of the eye, and put Thistle on the outer 1/3 and blended it into the crease. Sonic was used as a highlight in the tearduct and browbone. I used the foiling technique (aka damp brush). The brushes I used were all from Artist Studio. Here’s how it turned out.

And here’s a close up.

It’s a little weird how it ended up. The green eyeshadow is now almost completely invisible and turns up only as hints on the crease (the green you see near the upper lashline is a green eyeliner). It did spread out its glitter all over the lid though. The purple also isn’t as deep as the swatch suggested. I used my trusty Essence eyeshadow base underneath all this. Here’s another shot, although rather blurred.

  1. The colors do look a little washed out. Maybe they work better with other colors/eye shadows? Thanks for being game for this challenge, Pat! Mwah! 🙂

    1. I’m pretty sure I missed some crucial step, this is my first time using mineral eyeshadow. Maybe I need a better primer, or perhaps a fixer? I’ll definitely give this another shot, with other eyeshadows! Thanks again for these, Kira! Mwah back to you! 😀
