For speed and to set the tone for the look I firmly swept the eye shadow into the models sockets, far into inner and outer sockets whilst her eyes were open to make sure the eye shadow sits in the correct place to create a 'hollowed' effect. The eye shadow was them pressed along the lower lash line and extended up and further out towards the tail end of the brows. You might find it helps to use a coloured eye liner pencil such as Bourjois Metallic Eye Liner Pencils to draw the shape, then apply eye shadow over the top, then glide a metallic pencil along the water line for sultry depth. Alternatively, you can ditch brushes and apply with fingers, this can assist blending! For a complimentary flash of colour and to emphasise the eye shape and brows, I highlighted the eye lids with another matte colour, Illamasqua Powder Eye Shadow in Creep, then worked a touch of Lick Powder Eye Shadow under brows, avoiding the brow bone which was later finished off with Illamasqua Pure Pigment in Furore.Dior Show Waterproof Mascara on upper and lower lashes, then I used Blink & Go Temptress lashes for added volume and wider eyes. Skin? Yes, a light veil of Clinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturiser No. 2 and 3, a generous sweep of Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer No. 11 over cheekbones, above the brow, forehead and bridge of the nose to hightlight and delicately sculpt contours of the face. The finishes touch to lips had to remain neutral and almost bare, so I chose the coral tinge of Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Emerge ,which I later used to block out brows by combing through eye brows for more drama and impact.
