Avian Shapeshifter

This look features a Fyrinnae shadow.  I love Fyrinnae, but it’s a shame a lot of their shadows are no longer available.  Their blog explains why, but there are still a lot of good shadows left.  I could’ve sworn this shadow was still available for purchase when I did this look, but it isn’t.  The shadow is an Arcane Magic, so there isn’t an exact dupe; the closest I can think of is Mac’s Pink Bronze pigment.  I’ve recently picked this up, but it is yet to be added to The Swatch Bin.

Get This Look:

I love peach and coral eye shadows, but I find it difficult to get them to show up accurately; especially when there is gold shimmer.  It always seems the gold shimmer is very apparent but the coral/peach fades into my skin.  Mac’s Coral Crepe Paint Pot helps me wear these shades.  So I put Coral Crepe on my lid and up to my crease and blended Soft Ochre from my crease to my brow.

I used Hakuhodo’s crease brush and Naval (matte navy color) to form my Outer V.  I took the ‘V’ out a little further than I normally do to allow more lid space.  I also used a little bit of Shadow Lady (deep matte plum) to darken Naval.   With a fluffy brush, I used a skin tone shade (Mac’s Moleskin) to blend out the crease color.

I patted on Avian Shapeshifter onto my lid using a Mac’s 239 brush and blending it into my crease.  Since I used a colored base, I didn’t feel the need to use this shade wet.  With the same Mac 239, I used a little bit of Inglot’s #429 (pearl pale blue) to help with the transition between my crease and lid color.   The lid color flashes gold peach to a pink/brown peach depending on the light.  I couldn’t get this captured on  camera while on my eye.  See my Fyrinnae post for the color change for this shadow.
