42/365 Days of Eyeshadow

By Sheila Arkee

Another day, another opportunity for me to try out one of the looks from my inspiration photo pile.

This time, it was a fail. It seems I just don’t have the same fantastic bone structure as Ms. Valetta in this photo from a Nars campaign.

Le sigh!

Ah well, I gave it my best shot. In my case, I tried to carve out a crease by placing the darker crease color on the bottom of my brow bone, which is a little bit above my actual crease. I used a slanted brush first, to apply the color, and then buffed it out with a pencil brush. Next time I’ll try using a pencil in the crease first, which is what I think was used in the photo to make the crease so defined.

Speaking of pencil brushes, do you use one? I’m going to do a little tutorial on ways you can utilize a pencil brush – they’re fantastic tools, really!

I used MAC’s Naked Lunch as the base color, from lashline to browbone, for the reader who wanted to know the difference between Naked Lunch and Naked pigment.

Base: L’Oreal Studio Secrets No. 1

Lid: MAC Naked Lunch

Crease: MAC Print

Brows: Stila Dark brow duo, darker shade

Mascara: Dior Show

    It’s not a fail. Don’t compare your bone structure to Amber Valetta’s. Amber Valetta doesn’t even have Amber Valetta’s bone structure.

    I don’t have a pencil brush, but I think I need one. I need something for the small details.
