With just these three Orglamix eye shadows, I created three different looks this week. On Tuesday we saw my whimsical Bibbidy Bobbidy pumpkin look, complete with twisting vines. Yesterday, I showed off a look I called 'Goblin Glimmer', though now I'm thinking that 'Goblin Queen' would have served better to attract a young David Bowie. Halloween is magical, people. You never know.
For my last look, I decided to get away from the costume looks and do more of a 'spirit of Halloween' thing. This is a bold, smokey look perfect for a night out in the weeks before Halloween, or even paired with more, erm, subtle Halloween costume. And by that, I mean a lame cop-out costume like three-hole-punch Jim Halpert. At least your eyes will look festive.
Using all three of the Orglamix Halloween colors, I put together a style for eyes that can be worn anytime during the spookiest season of the year. Or as my sisters and I sing while fully covered in greusome zombie wounds, 'It's the most wonderful time... of the year!'
I swept the brow area with Mandarin, then the lid with Absinthe. I then blended Black Magic at the corner and along the crease of the lid. A little Black Magic goes a long way, so be sparing! Now, the great part about these loose eye shadows is that you can apply them wet, too. I used a wet brush in the Black Magic to line the upper and lower lids. I then swept a wet line of Mandarin along the bottom. To finish, I added dry Black Magic at the bottom corner and blended out.
I had so much fun putting together all three of my Halloween eye looks this year. Thanks so much to Cheri of Orglamix. She hand makes all of her cosmetics, and personally handles every order.
