Sometimes, you only need one or two eye shadows to really make a statement. I let my crease color make a statement in this look that I wore on thursday. I shaped and sculpted it into an elongated cat eye and I really love the results. First I applied Nyx’s HD eye primer to my lid. then I applied Illamasqua’s matte dark teal eye shadow in Intense to my crease and blended. Then I used MAC Vanilla on the browbone and blended the two colors. For the lid I used MAC Fairylite. I used a bit of Vanilla at the inner corner of the eye. I used a tiny bit of MAC Vapour where Vanilla and Intense meet. I put a bit of Intense along the lower lash line. I lined my upper lash line and lower waterline with Make Up For Ever liquid liner in 15 Iridescent Anthracite.

Beautiful! I love Intense. It was the first Illamasqua shadow I bought because I heard it might be a better-textured dupe of MAC plumage. I don’t know if that’s true but it’s a lovely teal. It looks really good with your eye color!
It’s definitely better than MAC Plumage, which is kind of hard. However, MAC Prussian is really nice, too, though not as green.
Gorgeous look, I just love the shape of the crease color! And Fairylite looks lovely.
I really love this look! the pale shimmery eyelid with bright matte crease, it’s gorgeous

I love the cat-eye shape you created. It lifts your whole eye in a funky way.
Yay thanks Olgie
Thank you Lillian
I love this look! I need to try the elongated cat eye shape. I have hooded eyes and sometimes even if i pull up the crease color you can barely see it. It may be fun to try a different shape since i always stick to the shame shape.
I keep experimenting with the crease with my eyes open. I’m glad this one turned out well
This is so intense and striking, I totally need to try it out
Yes yes yes! It would be cool if you did an orange?
