Bloggers’ Obsession: Jealousy Wakes & Parisian Skies

First I want to acknowledge that this look isn’t remotely wearable for work at least not where I work.   This is actually my third attempt at posting a look featuring these eye shadows.  I’ve blocked the first one out and the second one looked incredibly similar to a look I previously posted.  I had this idea in my head, but was only going to use Parisian Skies.  Then I thought, screw it, let’s use both.

These two shades work very well together as neither color overpowers the other.  Both shadows are nicely pigmented and blend wonderfully.  I didn’t notice any fallout while using these shades.  Unfortunately, Jealousy Wakes is sold out, but thankfully MAC will replenish its stock of this shade.  No word yet on the timing though.

After applying Soft Ochre paint pot with a Sigma 239 brush, I packed on a shimmery cream colored INGLOT shade onto my lid using a Mac 239 brush.  This shadow was applied from corner to corner up to my crease.

I then put Parisian Skies into the outer two-thirds of my crease using a Louse Young LY38B brush.  I kept the color darker at the outer corner and blended over.  This brush is a natural haired, narrow, fluffy brush.  The bristles are as long as a Mac 217, but tapered to point.  If you don’t have anything similar, use a pencil brush.  It will be more difficult to control the crease color if a bigger brush is used.

I wiped the LY38B clean and picked up Jealousy Wakes and started this green shade about mid-way through and blended the shade into the blue and to the inner corner.  With the remaining color left on the brush I soft blended the crease colors into the cream shade on my lid.

With a Mac 217, I used a matte skin tone shade on my brow bone, which covered up the rest of the paint pot and softly blended out the upper edge of the crease colors.

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.

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.
