My eyes have at all times been my favourite space on which to experiment with make-up — whereas I’ve by no means actually been capable of absolutely grasp an ideal cat-eye flick, gimme allllll the shadows, stain pots, tints, and mascaras on the map. And now, when our eyes are the one outstanding factor that may be seen on our faces apart from a masks, jazzing up our lids is very essential. The eyes are the home windows to the soul, n’est-ce pas?
I have been notably fascinated by enjoying round with shadow formulations proper now (assume: liquid powder, cream, and matte pencil). So once I bought my arms on the brand new Ilia Liquid Powder Chromatic Eye Tint ($28), let’s simply say I used to be stoked to attempt the vary of eight high-pigment-yet-subtle colours. The shades vary from a high-octane copper gold to a sheer champagne to a muted sage inexperienced — all of them glide on like a cream and set like a powder, that means every is tremendous buildable relying on the look you need. Plus, the water-based, 99 % pure formulation is made with smoothing horse chestnut flower and honokiol, an antioxidant-rich extract from magnolia bark.
What I really like about these is that the formulation A) would not really feel cakey, B) would not crease into each single eyelid line like most metallic shadows, and C) is tremendous versatile. They’re like three colours in a single relying on how a lot you layer on. For instance, within the above photograph, from left to proper, I am sporting Mythic, Hatch, and Sheen. Once I utilized Mythic, the peachy rose gold, I simply blended one swipe throughout my lids with my finger for a low-key sparkle. I needed a bit extra of a smoky vibe for the subsequent look, so I used an eyeshadow brush to use the cool inexperienced Hatch and added a little bit of brown liner, and for Sheen, I actually went for a high-impact punch of gold, so I utilized a number of coats utilizing the wand itself. For sure, I am obsessed.
