I am so in love with my new ILLAMASQUA Pure Pigment in ALLUVIUM , it is absolutely stunning and beautiful in real life then what you are seeing here , the color is so hard to capture with my very basic Camera …. I really wish to show you how wonderful it looks but ?? Anyways , hope with better sunlight I will be able to capture the beauty of the pigment , here is my first stint with the shade …. I hope you like it ??
And here is how the look turned up :
Here is step by step for the eye look :
A closer look at the colors used :
Applied MAC Lip Erase on whole eye lids ( yeahhhh … thank you SABRINA for the tip ) Applied ( Pressed ) ILLAMASQUA ALLUVIUM Pure Pigment on 3/4th of the outer lids leaving inner 1/4 th bare
Applied ( Pressed ) ILLAMASQUA ORE Pure Pigment in inner 1/4 th of the lids and blend with the blue pigment : When I say blend , it is the meeting point of the two shades , swipe your brush gently so that it creates a transition , Blue / Gold / BLUE GOLD …. I hope it is not confusing ??
Applied ILLAMASQUA OBSIDIAN eyeshadow in the crease with crease brush like MAC 226
Applied ILLAMASQUA VERNAU eyeshadow above the crease and below brow bone to blend in harsh lines
Applied ( Pressed / Swipe gently) ALLUVIUM Pure pigment over Black eyeshadow to make the crease color more shimmery yet different and more smokey then lid color
Finished with ILLAMASQUA OBSIDIAN eyeshadow as a liner with help of sealing gel and ILLAMASQUA MASQUARA and MAC Tenchnakohl in Graphblack on waterline
I hope you like the colors on my eyes … believe me they are looking more beautiful in real life …
