There’s been a lot of movement in Adam’s camera collection lately, which always means gear testing, which always means photo outings. I generally use Adam’s gear test sessions as an excuse to do some testing of my own – with more dramatic “editorial” makeup.
This look was inspired by a Chanel runway look from a few years back. I tweaked it to make it more wearable, nixing the eyelid gloss (which would no doubt be running down my face in this heat!) for a straight up metallic finish instead.
Here are some better photos of the eyeshadow in normal light. Scroll down for a description of what I used and how I created this look.
1. I drew over whole mobile lid with NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Purple Velvet, and in the crease with Rust. Using cream shadow or pencils as a base gives eyeshadow something to adhere to, and intensifies their colour.
2. Next I pulled out my Vice 3 palette and blended patted Urban Decay’s Vanity all over the lid, blended out the crease with Alchemy, and used Bondage to darken up the outer Vs.
4. I finished up with a very thin line of liquid eyeliner and and sheerest single coat of mascara because I didn’t want heavy liner or lashes to distract from the shadow.
