This look came so close to not being posted. This is the first time a look has looked better in pictures that it did in real life. This eye was a complete fail the first time and so I started over. I was really irritated because the two looks I tried last weekend were hideous too.
I sincerely apologize for the state of my eyebrows. I’m growing out my brows to try and lower my arch. I think it’s too high so I want to see how a slightly flatter brow looks on me. I’m also testing out a separate theory on growing out brows and eyelashes.

Get this look:
After applying the Primer Potion and Paint Pot, I put Texture in my crease with a stiff dome brush. Texture is a pretty caramel shade with a slight sheet. It is one of my go to shades for a neutral eye look.
With a flat shader brush, I tapped on the bright raspberry shade (#74). I started on the outer edge of my iris and blended the color up to the crease and toward the inner corner. The intensity of this shade is seen right away, but it can easily be blended out to soften the color.
I used the other side of the shader brush to apply the blue shade (#428) on the outer corner and with tapping motions, blended into the raspberry color and up to the crease. I did experience fallout with this shade so tapping motions are key to reduce it a bit.
I repeated the tapping motions to blend the two shades and applying a light amount of color when needed. With the edge of the shader brush for each color, I lightly applied the colors to my crease creating soft purple color.
I took another shader brush to apply Platinum to the inner corner and blended the shade into #74. I took the same stiff dome brush used earlier to blend out the crease colors and Platinum.
* Run a search to find swatches of these shades. Pictures can be found in my January posts. I use these shades too often to swatch with every post.
