How to create the Winged and Silver and Smokey Blue Eyeshadow Look:
Step 1. Start by applying the shimmering blue eyeshadow shade (Pop - Parisian Affair) all over the eyelid and along the lower lash line. Extend the shade into the inner corner of the eye for total color coverage over the eyelids.
Step 2. Apply the dark smokey charcoal shade (Smoke - That’s Off Black) along the outer third of the eyes and “wing” out the shadow. Be sure to wing the eyeshadow along both the upper and lower lash line to emphasize the winged shape. After blending out the charcoal shade into a winged eye shape, take a small brush and smudge the Define Eggplant shade along the lash line for added intensity.
Step 3. Apply the lighter shimmering silver shade (Smoulder - Sleeping Under the Stars) to the inner corners of the eye to add extra shimmer and draw in light for a highlighted effect.
Step 4. Finish off the eyes with bold and dramatic lashes. Apply two coats of Monsieur Big Mascara to both the upper and lower lashes. Perfect for creating a false lash effect the mascara gives lashes a bold touch with 12x more volume compared to natural lashes.
