first attempt at layering LMdB eyeshadows

Before anything else I have to apologize for the state of my eyebrows in the pictures below. My threading lady is away on vacation and I can’t pluck so I left it alone.

So, for this eye look I wanted to create something using shadows that I already own from a line that I truly adore, Le Metier de Beaute. They’re famous for their kaleidoscope palettes that twist out. Their color combinations are fool-proof and I have a number of them. This time though I wanted to see how the individual eyeshadows behave when layered together. I chose to apply Jojo all over, Corinthian on the lid and Fig on the outer corner and crease.

A more close up of the eye…again sorry for the eyebrows.

    • I used to use Urban Decay Primer Potion but I find it sticky. I like Laura Mercier Eye Basics but it’s not as good as UDPP. If I’m going to use LMdB eyeshadows then I use LMdB Eye Pencil smudged all over lid. Or I use cream shadow like L’Oreal Infallible or Maybeline Color Tattoo.
