Eye of the Week: A Tale of Two Cities


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. There was bronze, there was green.

There was Printcess Heist (on my brow bone), Stoic (on my lid), Evidence on the crease, and Prologue (as a thick liner).

(but still crappy office lighting)

I have seriously deep-set eyes, that are hooded, and further shadowed by permanent under eye circles. So I compensate for all those shadows by using a pop of brightly-colored eye shadow. In EOTW posts, this may come across as obscenely colorful, almost unprofessionally so.

But as you can see below, as a total effect they don't do much. This bright green of Prologue as a liner reads as slightly-brighter eyes.

(see, from a normal distance you can't much tell! Depth adds subtlety)
