ELLIS FAAS: Eye Look With Light II


This second look I’m showing you is a somewhat bolder look.


These are the ELLIS FAAS products that I used:


L-R:
Milky Eyes E207 (rust orange with a hint of shimmer)
Light E305 (metallic turquoise on a burgundy base – ELLIS FAAS calls it holographic Bordeaux)
Creamy Eyes E103 (matte black)
Mascara E401 (black)

Same swatches taken from different angles

Here’s what I did:

1. Applied Milky Eyes E207 all over lid using my finger, also feathered out the edges.
2. Applied Light E305 directly on the eyelid fold using its brush applicator, also used finger to dab some E305 just above the eyelid fold.
3. Used an angled eyeliner brush to add some E305 to the inner corner of the eye, drawing a short vertical line down.
4. Lined the lower lash line with E305 using the angled eyeliner brush.
5. Used an angled eyeliner brush to line the upper lash line with Creamy Eyes E103, wing-ed the line.
6. Curled the lashes and applied Mascara E401.

The colour combination of rust orange and metallic turquoise is a big departure from my comfort zone. Well, sometimes, we should look beyond what we always consider to be normal and comfortable and try something different for a change.

Thank you, my dear. You're so kind to say that. Well, I too am pleased to be back here again. :)

Oh you're back. I'm so glad. How are you? :)

Bold look indeed but it gives you adorable eyes (I love your eyeshape), the holo bordeaux suits you particularly well. Also the black is incredibly dense. Is it a pencil or something similar to the eyeshadow cream?

Hello! I'm still here and am quite all right. Thank you for asking. :) I hope all is well with you.

I'm glad you like this look. The black Creamy Eyes E103 is really a black liquid eyeshadow that I decided to use as an eyeliner as well (multi-purpose use is always a good thing!). It comes with a brush applicator but this brush is more suitable for a sweep of colour on the lid. That's why I had to use a separate eyeliner brush to line the eyes.

Do have a look at my older Ellis Faas articles. There is one with a review of Creamy Eyes and there, you will see photos of the pen, the thick liquid eyeshadow and the brush applicator. :)

So nice to see you posting again!

Love the sexy dark look on your eyes, that Ellis Faas eyeshadow is really pretty!

Witoxicity said...

@YOUU:)
Yes, I'm back! :D And I'm pleased you like this look.

@Carine
Yup, this ain't a half-hearted metallic eyeshadow. That's high-density metallic for you! :)

@Naoko
Hola Naoko! Thank you. I'm so pleased that this is to your liking. :)

@Danielle
Hi, Danielle! Yes, doing a bold-ish look once in a while can do no harm, right? Variety is the spice of life, they say. :D

@polishsis
Hoi! Thanks for the warm welcome. :D I only wanted to create an edgy look (edgy by my standards, that is) but, somehow, it ended up looking rather dark and foreboding instead. Ha ha!

@Fleur d'Oranger
It's lovely of you to reply. I must visit your blog, but do give me a bit of time. My computer isn't the most co-operative sometimes (and that's also one of the reasons why I keep my blog simple and fuss-free). :D Again, thank you! You're such a sweet reader. :)
