ELLIS FAAS: Eye Look With Light IV



Here’s another look that I’ve put together. This one took a bit longer than expected to complete, mainly because of the wing-ed eyelining on the bottom. This is my first ever attempt at mirrored wing-ed eyelining.

The products used were:



L-R:
Milky Eyes E203 (dark blue with a hint of shimmer)
Creamy Eyes E106 (matte taupe)
Light E301 (metallic light beige)
Creamy Eyes E103 (matte black)
Mascara E401 (black)

I love the beautiful blue of E203 (left). That bit of shimmer that it has helps to add more character to the blue.

Here’s what I did:

1. Applied Milky Eyes E203 on the upper lid with finger. First, applied a thin layer all across the lid, to just above the eyelid fold. Then, dabbed on a thicker layer of E203 close to the lash line (in my case, the area where the eyelid folds).

2. Used a small eyeshadow brush to apply Creamy Eyes E106 to the outer two-thirds of the bottom lid, extending it further on the outer corner. It’s almost like lining the bottom lid very thickly, but it won’t look OTT because of the neutral subdued colour of E106.

3. Applied Light E301 to the inner corner of the eye using an eyeliner brush. Continue by thinly lining the entire bottom lash line with E301, ie a thin lining of shimmery E301 on top of the thick matte E106. Note: This isn't waterlining.

4. Used an angled eyeliner brush to line the upper lash line with Creamy Eyes E103. Wing-ed the line.

5. Used the angled eyeliner brush to line the outer two-thirds of the lower lash line with the blue of E203. The line was drawn just below the thin shimmery line of E301. Wing-ed the line to (almost) mirror the eyelining of the upper lid. This blue lining is a bit fuzzy, as opposed to the sharp and distinct lining of the upper lid.

6. Curled lashes and applied Mascara E401.

I think this look can carry you from daytime to nighttime. Personally, I don’t think it’s too much for daytime. In these close-up photos, it may look rather intense but in person, much of the intensity is drowned out.

Ooh, you did a good job with the wing. I remember first time doing a wing, lets just say complete fail haha!
The shadows are really interesting as the look like they go from creme to powder!

That blue is lovely with your eyes and skintone. You did a great job on the look. I like the double wing effect. I never wear eyeliner during the day but will have to give this look a try for a night out. Thank you for sharing. Have a good weekend:) xo

@Natalie
Keep practising with the wing-ed lining. I didn't get mine right at my first attempt either. :D

These are liquid eyeshadows and once dried, they don't budge. Fab!

@Mz. More
Thanks, my dear! :)

@Amandita

@aestheticcoo
Thank you. Oh, you already have such beautiful eyes, so I would have no doubt that you will look even more amazing with this double wing lining. Enjoy your weekend too! :D

@Miss--Moana
Hoi! Leuk dat je hier bent en bedankt voor het compliment! :)

My pleasure. Hey, if I were you, I'd try it first before deciding that it wouldn't work. Who knows, it might look great on your eyes! :)
