Twilight Fae: Dramatic Hologram Eyes


For those of you craving some excitement for Summer nights, here's a colorful and dramatic smoky eye which is actually pretty easy to create. To tone it down for day, just keep the shadow within the socket area instead of blending it out and up as far as I did.
There were 3 main products I used:
  • Black kajal (any very creamy and smudgy black cream shadow or pencil will work)
  • Translucent green sparkle (I used a discontinued mica from TKB called Starlight Green, which has been replaced with Starbright Green. The Body Shop also has a single shadow highlight #08 which is exactly the same thing but in pressed form.)
  • Pink/purple duochrome with blue sheen (I Nuovi Amethyst dust; this is like a loose version of MAC Stars n Rockets shadow.)

And yes, these swatches above look NOTHING like how they appear on my lids, but that's why it's so fun working with duochromes and a black base!


Step 1: First apply black kajal or paint very thickly all over the lids, up to the socket line. 
--
Step 2: Using a synthetic concealer brush (or any synthetic paint brush), softly smoke out the edges so there are no hard lines, and bring the color up and out. 


Step 3: Apply the kajal to the lower lash line and water line as well, and smudge out lightly. The finished look should now be like the above image, which is a typical winged smoky eye shape.


Step 4: From here, we move on to the fun stuff. Lightly dust the translucent green highlight all the way from lower lash line up to the brow, but ONLY ON THE INNER HALVES of the lids.


Step 5: The shade that's going to make everything look holographic is the pink/violet/blue duochrome on the outer half of the eyes, top and bottom. When you pack it over the black, you will no longer see the pink, but the violet and blue is going to take on a sort of glow which is going to stand apart from the green and give the most interesting effect.


Step 6: This step is optional. I wet a flat brush with a little liner sealant (Ben Nye Liquiset), dabbed it into some aqua green translucent glitter, then pressed it right down the center of the lids. This echoes the green shadow, but adds a "wet" effect and gorgeous sparkle when you blink.


Step 7: To finish the look, I curled my lashes and then applied a strip of wispy lashes. Any type of lashes would work, including plain black mascara.

  6. IWC non ha assolutamente carenza di modelli di cronografi Portugieser tra cui scegliere se si è sul mercato per uno.rolex replica Il modello che alla fine sceglierai come consumatore è un mix di prezzo, disponibilità e stile. Con orologi come questo consiglio sempre di scegliere un quadrante di colore più chiaro in quanto presenterà al meglio il design centrale di Portugieser. Ricorderò anche a IWC che mi manca quando questi orologi erano chiamati semplicemente portoghesi e non portoghesi. IWC ha modificato la nomenclatura poco fa - e non sono ancora sicuro del perché. In ogni caso, i consumatori freschi della collezione dovrebbero essere consapevoli del fatto che con molti rivenditori e appassionati di orologi, quando si tratta di IWC,orologi replica "portoghese" e "portoghese" sono termini che possono essere più o meno usati in modo intercambiabile.
