To start, have your foundation on and eyes and lips clear:
Step 2- Using an object with a straight side, make a line from your lid to a little beyond the end of your eyebrow, like so:
|Here I'm pressing a Blu-Tack packet into use. Oh the glamour.|
Smudge the blue and grey line where they meet with your finger (or a brush if you're fancy).
Step 3- Using the gold shadow, line the rest of your under eye. Then extend it out in two streaks, one from your outer eye and one from mid eye. Think an Egyptian 'Horus' type eye:
Step 4- Put a dab of bronze where the gold and grey meet under your eye:
Step 5- Dab the bright sky blue with your fingers all over the grey and blue on your lid. The idea is to create a cloudy mix of colours:
Step 6- Line your eyelid with black liner (I did just a small line, close to the waterline, but you can go bigger) and get loads of mascara on your lashes:
Step 7- Pat grey eyeshadow all over your lips:
Step 8- Apply a purple lipgloss or balm over the top:
Step 9- Pat green eyeshadow over the top with your fingers. The idea is to go for a camouflage patch like effect, rather than all over:
And you're done!
It's actually slightly Black Swan as well now I look... Obviously this is a big OTT look, but you can scale it down to suit for a more sophisticated event. This is my first try at this, so I hope you like it, sorry for being so pic heavy!
