Smoking Guns and Gambling Nuns
Wouldn’t that be the best Western EVER??
Lid and lower lashline: Fyrinnae Strip Poker (next time I’ll use PE so I don’t lose the sparkles)
Crease: mysterious Aziza II eyeshadow
Highlight and inner corner: SN Fire
Maybe someday I’ll photograph the Aziza palette. I’ve had that thing since I was 14 or 15, which makes it old. How old? OLD AS BALLS.
Lid/lower lashline: ES Acolyte, possibly over Pixie Epoxy
Inner corner: a shitty blend of NYX Kiwi and Yellow (NOT Yellow Funk)
I love how Acolyte looks as a smokey eye. The only disappointment with this look is how shitty the NYX shadows were. I’d forgotten that I had those two, apparently for a good reason. Kiwi is supposed to be a beautifully pigmented lime green shimmer, and it’s gorgeous in the pan. Yellow is a standard matte yellow GEE I HAD NO IDEA. Together they form… a disgusting muddy-bruise color.
I have to be honest, I felt pretty awesome in this makeup. I’ve never had much luck with the whole “smokey eye” thing before, but I think it was because I usually tried to use straight black colors and over-blended the crease/extended the color too far up toward the browbone. Lessons learned, my friends.
