This is another look using a Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense shadow. I wasn’t quite happy with the first look I had done using this shade, so I decided to do a ‘take 2’. I used an Inglot shimmery peach shade to pair the ETK in Khaki Pulse (no. 6). I initially used my finger to apply the potted ETK shadow. I did try out a Sigma 239 to pack on more color, which worked okay.

Get This Look:
I love peach and coral eye shadows. My collection has more than a few, but that is because I have a hard time finding a shadow in that color that shows up on my skin. I gravitate towards those peach shades that have gold shimmer. It’s so pretty, but usually the gold shimmer shows up on my skin, while the peach practically disappears. Anytime I plan on using a peach shade, I apply Mac’s Coral Crepe paint pot to help boost the peach or coral color. I applied the paint pot on the inner two-thirds of my lid and a bit past my crease. I left the outer third bare.
On the outer third, I applied the Eyes to Kill Intense shadow in Khaki Pulse with my finger. With a Mac 217 brush, I blended MUFE #13 in my crease. I then patted on Inglot shade #15 on top of the Coral Crepe paint pot with a Mac 239 brush. (This Inglot shade looks very orange in the picture, but it doesn’t look that way on my skin.) I wanted to define my outer V, but not lose the khaki green color, so I chose Mac’s Carbon eye shadow with same 217 brush. I then took a Sigma SS239 brush and reapplied the Khaki Pulse shade. Carbon is a great shadow to darken or intensify a color you put on your lid.
I decided to use a black eye shadow as a liner. If you’re looking for a black matte shadow to use a liner, don’t pick Mac’s Carbon. MUFE matte black shadow is fantastic as liner. It is extremely pigmented, great formula and black. I initially used a forest green eyeliner on my lower lash line (Urban Decay – Mildew), but it was too green for this look for me. So I put a Mac liner on top that is black with green and gold shimmer.
