This was inspired by an old Voltaire song, Raven’s Land. I just started reaching for Makeup Geek shadows and ended up with this look. I’d been looking at Cora’s Midnight in Paris look, which shaped this, though they’re not identical.

  3. Blend Makeup Geek Sensuous into the crease, blending upwards.
  4. Pat Makeup Geek Poolside onto the center of the lid.
  5. With a bent eyeliner brush, apply Makeup Geek Gel liner in Immortal to the upper lash line and outer lower lash line.
  6. With a smudger brush, apply Sensuous along the lower lash line.
  7. With a fluffy brush apply BftE Glistening to the browbone and inner corners of the eye.
