ELLIS FAAS: Eye Look With Light VII



I have a tendency to stick to safe eye looks – nothing too colourful, nothing too dramatic. The last time I did a look that was rather dramatic was back in July, a surreal month during which my father passed away. In fact, I had dedicated that eye look to him. To this day, I still wonder what he might have thought of it.

......Anyway, today’s eye look verges on the dramatic side, minus the emotions. It’s actually a simple look using a total of only three products, all from ELLIS FAAS. They are:




L-R:
Light E304 (metallic lilac/medium purple)
Milky Eyes E203 (dark blue with a hint of shimmer)
Mascara E401 (black)





This is my first experience with Light E304. From the press photos, I had expected the colour to be a pale lilac. In person, the colour looks a bit darker, more like a medium purple. It nevertheless looks lilac in these photos here because of its metallic finish.

This is what I did for this look:

1. Dabbed with finger the blue of Milky Eyes E203 on the entire lid except for the lid fold. Using the finger helps to fade out the edges.
2. The aim was to elongate the eye, so I pulled the blue out to way beyond the outer corner of the eye. I used an angled eyeliner brush to create a more defined outer edge of the blue.
3. Applied the medium purple of Light E304 directly on the lid fold using the pen’s brush. Due to the way my eyelid folds, I had to make sure not to go beyond the boundaries of the fold. Otherwise, it would have looked rather odd in my case.


4. Still using the pen’s brush, I coloured my lower lid with the metallic E304, extending the line to meet the blue.
5. Lined the upper and lower lash line with the blue of E203.
6. Curled lashes and applied three coats of Mascara E401.


That's it, really. Just two liquid eyeshadows and a mascara. There is no blending, the two shades were deliberately left clearly defined.

The other dramatic look: ELLIS FAAS: Eye Look With Light III

This look would not have been possible without the kind generosity of the folks at ELLIS FAAS who provided me with these pens.

I had always been into neutral looks too, just like you. However, I've been more adventurous with colours in the past year. It's nice to try new shades. :)

To listen once more and to welcome once again the joyful message of the Angels of God.
It is time to cherish dreams of harmony and peace and to thank God for the "angels" on earth who give us a glimpse of glory of heaven

@Get Gawjus!
Thank you, Shifa! Add perhaps some fierce-looking false lashes and you'd be ready for a night out! :D

Mara (Itsura) said...

So sorry for your loss, dear. I'm sure that your dad is watching over you. :)

Anyway, I am loving the purple. Like you, I always stay on the safe side. But I did have a phase of experimenting with colors.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday! <3

@Mara
Thank you for your comforting words, Mara.

Hmmm, I'm certainly in the experimenting phase, having spent such a long time using only neutrals. Hey, I hope you had a great Christmas! :)
