Arctic Sky

I love this shade, but creating a look for this blog has been a complete pain.  This look is my third or fourth attempt.  Unfortunately, the pink duochrome is not camera friendly, but I finally like the end result.

Get This Look:

This is incredibly simple and can be easily tamed to make it more ‘work friendly’.  After priming, I wet a flat synthetic brush (Mac 242) using Mac’s Fix+ to apply Arctic Sky to the inner third of my lid and up to my crease.  It isn’t necessary to use this shade wet to get a good result, but it helps for photos.  Using a flat shader brush (Mac 239), I put Contrast (deep purple-ish blue) onto my outer corner and blending it over to the lid shade.  I also ran this shade on my lower lash line.  For my crease, I used the thin tip of the Mac 239 to apply a sharp crease.  If your shader brush is fluffier at the tip, try using a pencil brush.  I very lightly softened the edges of my outer corner and crease color using a skin tone shade a fluffy brush.  You can skip the sharp crease to make this look less dramatic.

The inner corner color is a shimmery white and I used a tiny shader brush to apply.  The liner is a matte dark purple that goes well with both lid shades.
