Looks: Lise Watier Eyeshadow Quartet in Mer

First of all, I hope the images look good to you because the shadows look amazing in real life. That they should suffer because of my incompent photography just blows.

So here's a shot of all four shades on my eye, with my eye closed.

And here's the disappointing outcome of having chinese eyes. When my eyes are open, all the pretty colours turn into this:

Which is plain disappointing. Where's my lashes? The pretty colours? Boo. I'll just have to blink alot to show them off.

But whining aside, these shadows really did stay in place and shimmered and glowed all day - no primer and oily lids too. Whee! Get hold of them if you can, you won't regret it.

Although I don't think I did this eye particularly well, here's the breakdown of what shade went where for those who are interested:
  1. A wash of Sand all over the lid and under the eye to even out skintone and open up the eye area. Heavier application under the brow bone to highlight.
  2. Sweep Terracotta up to the brow bone
  3. Use Rose brown shading from the outside-in, darker along the crease line and along the eyelash
  4. Using an eyeliner brush for precision and greater colour pay-off, apply Turqouise to inner eyelid (if that makes sense), and under the eye. Using a blender brush, more turqoise is applied to blend above the inner lid.
  5. Line eyes, curl lashes and slap the mascara on.
