After a bit of a hiatus, I finally got around to another of my IMAM sample challenge looks. This one was from /u/eraser_dust, aka Working with Monolids, the creator of the sample challenge herself. She said I should use My Pretty Zombie’s Bleu and Fyrinnae’s Bawdy Librarian, so that I could call it my Bawdy Bleu Librarian look.
- Fyrinnae Bawdy Librarian
- My Pretty Zombie Bleu
- Urban Decay Primer Potion
- Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner in Intense Black
- Marc Jacobs Highliner in Brown(out)
- Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara
- MAC Face and Body in N1
- Laura Mercier Secret Concealer in 1
- MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Light
- Tarte Exposed
- Benefit Hoola Gloss
I started by priming my eyes, including under the lower lashline. I applied Bawdy Librarian, a sparkly bronze brown, to the inner 3/4 of my eyelids. Then I used a pencil brush to apply Bleu, a dark navy, in a cat eye shape at the outer corner. I blended the two together and faintly applied some Bleu along my crease at the upper edge of the bronze shadow. I brought the navy around the outer corner and along the lower lashline. I lined my lower lashes with bronzey brown pencil liner and my upper lashes with black liquid liner. I curled my lashes and applied mascara to both sets of lashes. I did my face make up, finishing with a pale bronze/gold gloss.
I had a lot of fun with this! It’s not a shape I use very often, but I think it’s cool, in an intense way. Also, both of the shadows had excellent pigmentation and were easy to use together.
