As promised on Wednesday, here is a look using Nixie Professional eyeshadows that is a little more “everyday” friendly.
I took my inspiration from the famed “Stormy Eye” from New York’s Fashion Week. I used a brown-based deep purple Nixie eyeshadow for this look. Starting with a medium, slightly floppy shadow brush, apply the shadow all across your lid and blend, blend, blend into the crease and just past it. Blend until the color fades into your natural skin color.
Take a small shadow liner brush (stubby stiff bristles) and line your upper and lower lash line with the same deep purple shadow. Finish with mascara. The look is low-key but dramatic enough to cause a stir about your eyes. If you’d like more impact- simply blend the purple with a deep brown (such as Milani’s Java Bean – read Bionic’s article) for a truly stormy effect.
