ELLIS FAAS: Creamy Eyes E119



Here are the swatches for the new ELLIS FAAS Creamy Eyes E119 and an eye look using this yellow ochre.

To be honest, I'm not one who gravitates to yellow eyeshadows but then again, if I was game enough to try an acid green eyeshadow, I should at least give yellow a whirl.


Thankfully, E119 is a soft, earthy yellow.

ELLIS FAAS Creamy Eyes E119 swatches: Heavily applied (L); Lightly swatched (R)

For the eye look, I've used E119 as more of a base/background shade, combining it with a dark rust orange and a dark brown for a kind of vertical gradient. I used:


Creamy Eyes E119 - yellow ochre
Milky Eyes E207 - dark rust orange
Creamy Eyes E104 - dark brown
GOSH Velvet Touch Eye Liner - Truly Brown (tightlining)
Mascara E401 - black
These are a mixture of pens provided by ELLIS FAAS and from my own purchase.


Basically, it's the yellow ochre high on the lid, the rust orange on the moving lid and the dark brown for wing-ed eyelining. For the bottom lid, I've applied a touch of yellow ochre and then did a mirrored wing eyelining with the dark brown to elongate the eyes.

Difficult color. You really need something to spice it up. Your eye look looks fab though, I love the mirrored wing. Take care, Nicole x

Love your eye looks and the way you do the winged eyelining. Cool! I still have difficulties to do mirrored wings like that. Well, practice, practice and practice I guess. "KTee"xx

You're too kind, Nani. Thank you! :)

@Nicole
True, it's not the easiest shade to work with (but luckily, it's not a yellow like canary yellow). That's why, for this eye look, I more or less stayed within the colour group. Have a fab weekend, Nicole! :)

@KTee
Thanks so much, KTee! I'm so pleased to hear that. Yes, it does come down to practice and even I don't always get it right. Make sure though that your hand or elbow is anchored. That helps a lot in keeping the hand steady. :)
