I’m not a fan of pre-made eye shadow sets or palettes.  Rarely do all of the shades work well for my skin color and undertone.  I had to make an exception for this Hourglass duo.  It really is pretty sweet.  The shades work well dry and are fantastic wet.   The texture is buttery soft.

Get This Look: 

This look is very simple.  Painterly paint pot was applied all over my lid and up to my brow bone.  To blend the edges of the primer, I brushed on Mac’s Soft Brown, which is a skin tone shade for me.  I also put this color in my crease and up to my brow.  I hadn’t tried these shadows out before doing this look (other than swatching them on my hand), so I started with the lid first.  I put some of the darker shade on a Mac 239 brush and dampened the color with Mac’s Fix Plus.  I then applied the color to my lid.  I kept the color below my crease on most of my lid, but slightly above my crease on the outer corner.  I also kept the inner corner bare for the lighter shade.  The lighter shade (also dampened) was applied to the inner corner and blended above the darker shade and into my crease.

Mac’s Haux was blended into my crease and to the outer corner.  I lightly applied a matte cream INGLOT shade below my brow.  A purple liner (Ransom) was added to my lower lash line and a shimmery white pencil was put on my lower water line.  I then tightlined using INGLOT’s gel liner and a Mac brush #263 and also applied the gel liner to my upper lash line.
