Jane Iredale: Eye Look I



You might have noticed by now that I like smokey looks. My excuse would be that I'm a creature of habit, but my reason would be that I haven't got deep-set eyes. Smokey looks add the much needed depth.

I wore this look yesterday. It's an uncomplicated one using mainly Jane Iredale eye products. The simple gradation is light on the inner corner and darkest on the outer corner. I used:


L-R:
Jane Iredale Daytime Eye Shadow Kit
Jane Iredale Eye Gloss - Wine Silk
Jane Iredale Eye Pencil - Basic Black
GOSH Wonder Volume Mascara

The three colours used were:
• Off-white - Oyster, the leftmost shade from the Daytime Eye Shadow Kit
• Burgundy - Eye Gloss in Wine Silk (lightly swatched here)
• Black - Charcoal, the rightmost shade from the Daytime Eye Shadow Kit


You've seen this Eye Gloss before in a previous post. Then, I had deliberately applied it very thickly for high colour intensity. This time, the burgundy of the Eye Gloss doubled as an eyeshadow base too. I applied it very lightly on the inner corner and gradually darker towards the outer corner. After that, I added Oyster on the inner corner (also on the bottom) and Charcoal on the outer edge, leaving the burgundy of Wine Silk exposed in between.

I then lined the eyes and applied two coats of mascara. Simple!

Hi, Jeanie! Thank you, I'm so pleased to hear that. I always use an eyeshadow base/primer when I use powder eyeshadows. With the kind of lids I have, I can't do without them. With Ellis Faas eyeshadows, I don't need to. However, I didn't use a primer for this Jane Iredale look. Instead, I used the burgundy Eye Gloss as a base. :)

@Nicole
My pleasure! Thanks for your kind words, Nicole. :)
