Dramatic Duo-chrome Winged Eyes (MAC Green Brown and L’oreal Infallible 014 Eternal Black)
This isn’t a complicated eye look. You actually only need 2 colors. A rich black, and a duo-chrome shade.
The duochrome shadow you can switch out for pretty much any duo-chrome you want. (MAC alone has Cornflower, Rose, Blue Brown, Club, Gorgeous Gold, etc. Just to name a few.)
The black shadow I used however, I highly recommend. This isn’t just any regular black shadow because the L’oreal Infallible formula contains a lot of binders so the texture is in between a cream and a powder, which makes it go on really intense, but also allows it to act like an eye shadow base, so other colors go on beautifully over it.
Step 1: The wing. You just need to line your lower lashline with black. Follow the angle of your lower lashline when you reach the end, and extend straight up and out. For the inner corners, I actually had the line go straight in and down for a slightly more dramatic effect. If you don’t like it, you can always just follow your lash line all the way.
(P.S. Use a black pencil if you’re in a hurry.)
Step 2: On the top lids, use a flat brush to pack black onto the outer half of the lids, extending out to meet the end of the black line you drew earlier. The higher the black goes, the more dramatic.
Step 3: I used my fingers to just smooth a green brown duo-chrome pigment over the lids from inside out, blending over the black, but stopping BEFORE I cover it completely. You want the outer ends to be very dark and very black still, so leave the black alone there.
The finished look should be almost peridot-green on the inner corners, shaded to brown in the center and then to black on the outer ends.
Step 5: Finish with just black mascara on top and bottom lashes. I added black kohl pencil to the inner rims of the lash line for extra oomph.
