EOTD: One color.. three brushes

I dug out my Chanel Enigma palette and just used one color in the quad. This particular quad is SO pigmented that any color will really show up. But for the first time in a long time, I wanted to put a shadow through the paces. That means no base and no sealant. Just shadow. I used the taupe color from the Enigma quad with three brushes: a small shader for the lid, a large shader to blend through the crease, and a fluffy shadow brush to soften the edges up to the brow.

The result:

 On the rest of the face…

Armani Designer Shaping Foundation
Koh Gen Do Translucent Powder
Chanel Blush in In Love
MAC eyeliner in Smolder
Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara
MAC Cremesheen Lipgloss in OverIndulgence
*The Chanel shadow passed with flying colors. With no base and no fixative, the color did not crease or fade on my oily lids. I did that face at 9:00 in the  morning… the color was still fresh 12 hours later. Chanel is coming up in the way of longevity and performance. There was a time when I wouldn’t give those eyeshadow quads a passing glance because the formulas tended to crease and fade on me. Plus, the color payoff wasn’t much to rave about. But of late, this brand is really exceeding expectations.*

    That eyeshadow is such a gorgeous color on you! I like that you also used it under your bottom lash line, very nice look!
