Legendary Black

I did a review on Le Metiér de Beauté a while ago, but never used the shadows in a blog post until now.  My review wasn’t too glowing.  Not that the shadows aren’t nice (some shades are hit and miss), but they aren’t nice enough to command the price tag.  Out of the ones I purchased, there are a couple that I really like and use regularly…Jojo is one of them.  It’s one of those great all over wash shades.  This look also features another Pro Longwear Mac Shadow.

Get This Look:

I applied Urban Decay’s Primer Potion with my finger and used a Sigma 239 brush to put on the Nubile Paint Pot.  Nubile is a new Paint Pot by Mac that came out in an earlier collection, but it is still available on Mac’s website.  Using a Laura Mercier eye crease brush, I blended Saddle into the crease and Corduroy into the outer edge of the crease.  With the same brush, I lightly applied Brown Script above the brown shades so that it is peaking out.

Using a Hakuhodo shader brush, I put Jojo on to the inner two-thirds of my lid and up to the crease colors.  Using the other side of the brush, I applied Legendary Black to the outer third of my lid concentrating the color near the lash line and blending up.  I also blended this shade below the lower lash line.

To keep the upper lash line looking smokey, I chose a black eye shadow for a liner.  The blackest shadow I own is Urback Decay’s Blackout.  I also brought this black shade to the lower lash line and onto the outer edge of my lower waterline.
