Eyes to Kill Intense: Khaki Pulse and Peaches

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.
