I wanted to do something a bit more abstract this week so I ended up doing these kind of feathery shapes on my eye. I love drawing feathers but for some reason I've never gotten them done with makeup quite this good!
I have to apologize for my fuzzy pics in advance, winter in Finland means no daylight to take clear pics!
Here's how the look ended up:
After putting on primer, use a dark shimmery blue to shade a winged shape like in the pic, starting from under your brow. I used Dark Heart Designs Marry the Night.
Continue doing that shape with some brighter medium blues and shimmery white/light blue. I used Sugarpill’s Royal Sugar, Afterparty and Lumi.
Create a wavy stripe across the lid like in the pic. This will be the center of the first feather. I used Ben Nye’s White Magicake Aqua Color.
Begin sketching the feathery shape with very light strokes and a thin brush. I tried to create the feathery parts kind of flowy, like how real feathers are. I used the same Ben Nye white for this.
Continue with the light strokes to add more dimension!
Start shading the feather by adding some grey or black. I added it very close to the center to add some depth.
I used Lime Crime Lotus Noir eyeshadow.
Add some black fine lines on the feather like in the pic. I used Golden Rose Black Liquid Liner.
Blend the black liner with black eyeshadow; I used Lime Crime Lotus Noir, again.
I also added eyeshadow on the lower part of the eye, placing the darkest shade closest to the lashline. I used Sugarpill’s Royal Sugar and Lumi with Dark Heart Designs Marry the Night.
Here, I added another feather. I was originally planning to do just one but I thought two looked better. I did the second one just like the first one!
I added some black eyeliner and shaded the feathers with black eyeshadow some more. I used Eyemimo Liquid Liner and Lime Crime Lotus Noir for shading everything.
Then just add lashes and some blue to your bottom lashes and the look is complete! I stacked some blue feathery lashes from Kissable Lips Cosmetics with Sugarpill Dewdrop Lashes and used Anastasia Hypercolor Electric Blue Lashtint for the bottom lashes. I also applied Sugarpill Afterparty eyeshadow on my lower lashline.
Hope you guys liked this, I'm keeping my fingers crossed we'll get some more sunny days here soon so I can take some proper pics again, haha!
Have an awesome week <3!!
