Simple Cool Brown Eye

I have been quite busy the last few days BUT I thought I would throw this quick little eye look in until I can get my Make Up For Ever eyeshadow swatches up. (My goal is to have that posted by this evening!) In the mean time here is a quick and simple look using cool brown tones. This look can be made more dramatic by adding more of the darkest crease color, or more natural by omitting the darkest crease color all together. Enjoy!

(I LOVE how I can see my hand and my camera in my eye! LOL- Sorry!)
Moving on...

Tarina Tarantino Magic Hour Cream Shadow - Nebula

Soooo....I have been looking at this cream eyeshadow for a few weeks and finally broke down and bought it today (thank goodness as there were only 2 left @ my local Sephora!). The Magic Hour Cream Shadow is a lightweight, water resistant/ no crease cream formula that can be used as an eyeshadow or an eyeliner ($19.00 @ Sephora & There are other colors available in this formula but I did not purchase them as I have similar cream shadows in other lines. This one was unique. It is a white color with a blue/ violet duochrome. (Think MAC Vellum eyeshadow (discontinued) in a water resistant, cream form.

The color payoff is better than expected if you layer it, OR you do a single application for a more sheer wash of color. Below I put together a series of quick looks, using the product as a base color. Please excuse the lack of mascara/ liner on the first 2 softer looks.....i did these in a bit of a hurry...(sorry). These colors are limited edition so I am unsure of how long they will be available. To see the other colors, and get more information please click on this link:

And here we go.....
