After applying my base, Sketch is put on the outer corner and blended up to the crease, but not too far over.  The edges are blended out with MAC girlie eye shadow.  (This step can be skipped or a face powder can be used.)  You can definitely brighten up this eye by using a brighter purple and blending the color deeper into the crease.

The Pixy Epoxy is applied on my lid in places where my lid colors will go.  (TIP:  Apply the PE after you’re satisfied with your pressed colors.  It won’t smear.  I haven’t had much success in apply pressed shadows on top of PE.)  PE brightens up this look considerably.  This look is softer, but still colorful and pretty without the PE.

The Fancy Lad and Sennyo are patted on the lid up to the crease.  Crimson Ghost is applied to the inner corner and blended into The Fancy Lad in my crease.  (Crimson Ghost is a beautiful and deceiving color.  It shows up as a light reddish pink over PE, but over a clear/neutral base, it is a pale, pink.  Beautiful!)

Mehpisto is lightly patted on the outer corner.  Mephisto is tricky (as are a handful of my Fyrinnae shadows, but don’t let that scare you off).  If blended with a fluffy brush or rubbed on the eye lid or if the shadow is pressed too hard when loading up your flat shader brush; the color loses its flare.  The depth of the color disappears.  The deep wine color is replaced with a purple-y blue (similar to the purple/blue color a red wine stain leaves behind).
