In my makeup journey, I started out with one single shade on the lid, then two, then I upgraded to crease colors. I've been doing two crease colors, but on days where I don't have as much time, I may do one. For the crease, I would put the color there and then think 'my color is hiding in my crease.' Then, I learned to blend out of the crease, but still didn't think I was doing what I intended. To open my eye, I had been making my lid color extend to the crease and take the crease color up a notch. This is a good example of what the taking-the-crease-color-up-a-notch should look like. Then I realized that my crease color was reaching my eyebrows...take a look at my past fotds. It was okay IRL, but looking at it.....hmmmm not as happy with it. So, I tried to modify a few things, def blend out of the crease, but not too high, use my second color right at the bone (layered)... So, here are my results!
Magic dust e/s on lid
Mothbrown e/s in crease
Rule e/s layered with mothbrown, inner crease, and to line bottom lid
Loreal Voluminous mascara in Carbon black
I got super, duper, out of this world compliments on this look (by MA's and non-MA's alike!) Doesn't look that special, I know, I guess IRL and not on a cam phone.. it looked hot!
Same as above, except Rule e/s is replaced by the lighter magenta shade of the Loreal HIP duo shadows in Reckless.
