I wanted to do a nice coppery brown tutorial based off of this look and show off just how little you need to blend Meow’s Egyptian Treasures collection colors. I swear to you, the color Bast reminds me of the cat breed known as the Abyssinian.

Phaedra was such a ham, she’s in a bunch of these pictures.
I hope you like the pictures and I hope you enjoy the tutorial. I didn’t edit very much out and I made sure to show you all of the blending that I did for the look. I’m hoping that this will show you just how easy it is to blend the Egyptian Treasures collection.
The video will be posted here shortly:
I would also love to know what you think of the video, and if me leaving in all of the blending helped.

I didn't have time to watch the video yet (but I'll definitely watch it, love your videos!) but I just had to say that your dog is super-cute And the makeup looks stunning! Not at all boring browns and that blue on lower lash line is so pretty.
Oooh, this is a beautiful look. And one that I think would look good on me! Since I have all the shadows and the lippie, I'm going to copy it! I haven't watched the video yet, but I am excited to see your blending techniques!
Hi Nea,Thank you so much! Ransom is a really neat iridescent shade of liner. I'm glad you think Phaedra is cute, I know I find her adorable!
Hi Tally,Thank you! PLEASE let me know what you think of my blending, because I hardly blended at all with this look yet I feel like it turned out really nice.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this look!I may have to borrow this! I hope you don't mind!
I also got a HUGE kick out of Phaedra making an appearance in so many pics! The kissy pic is just too cute!
Thank you for this tut on blending with these colors,Phyrra. You did do a great job with the blending. Now I am off to play with my samples which arrived yesterday!
Hi Power Lifter Chick,Thank you!Please do borrow it! That's why I made the video And I'm glad you like seeing Phaedra, she really is my joy.
Hi Starlight,You're quite welcome! I hope you have fun playing
Hey, so I finally got around to watching the video!
I liked your blending, especially between Bast and Jackal on your upper lid. It is interesting how you kept your swiping with the brush in the same direction. I agree that minimal blending was needed because these colors all work together so well. The technique you used between these two color looks to be really helpful for when two colors are very similar in texture and tone. Thanks!
I also have copied your use of a big blender brush to apply highlighter colors to the brow and to do a final blending. And I also like your use of the really small brush for the inner corner of your eye. I used a similar brush like that for my inner corners, and also to apply shadow to the lower lash line with a lot of luck (I copied that inner corner-brush technique from you).
I also like applying dark colors to the "v" area with an angled blender brush. I copied that technique from Nina at aromaleigh :). Usually, I think going over the crease with a fluffy blender once the dark color has been applied to "cut the crease" is a good idea. However, when I copy this look, I will leave out that step because I think the anubis crease color ended up not being defined enough for my taste (since the colors are so similar and blend so well).
And I really like the fact that you left in the blending. Blending is key, and you are great at it! Thank you so much for all your videos.
Hi Tally,Thank you for the great feedback!I usually try to leave in the majority of my blending, so it's good to know it helps.
You're welcome. You deserve lot's of feedback
hi! thanks for doing the videos. your blending is effortless and i can see that you do not really have to do much with this collection. i think i really have to practice and adapt the crease defination step because the shape of my eyes are different from the caucasian ones like yours.
i love Phaedra. if i were in the same room as her i'd totally cuddle in bed. *huggles* i wish my cat would cuddle.
Hi Suzie,She'd totally cuddle with you! She loves the bed. She's also the only pet I've ever had that uses pillows like a person, laying her head on them.
I wish I had suggestions for how to help with asian creases. A friend of mine who does not really have much of a crease will just carefully shape the color where she likes it. You could also try just doing an outer vee for emphasis. I'm glad you liked the blending!
