Pixelated Eyeshadows and the Looks They Create

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.* 
*I made these.*

You know when you want a neutral or even nude eye look, you buy that 40 nude/neutral color palette.  Then when you try the colors thinking it will make you life easier because they are all wearable colors, they turn out just boring and beige or brown.  So to liven up the eye look you apply the sparkly or shimmery colors only to end up confused because the awesome look you created was a mix of everything, created by just an experimental application.  The perfect look which cannot recreated because it was done on a whim.

Pixelated Eyes

Yeah, I have been down this road one too many times.  A nude, neutral, or natural eye look shouldn't look boring, bland, and flat.  It should look glowing, capturing the light on the eyes at the perfect angle to create light and dark without having to put so much effort in creating a defined and contoured eye, especially on mature and wise women like moi!

The creation of my multi-dimensional powder, has paved the way to create a much needed multi-dimensional flesh peach type of color.

The Mixes

Here are the swatches of both of these (and please, look at my previous post for several more swatches of the lavender/gold swatch).

The Swatches

They, admittedly, do not look like much, but they have made my eyeshadow life much easier.  With these two colors and the ever important matte taupe which I consider to be equivalent to the non-repro blue pencil in the makeup world, I can pretty much create a naturally defined and contoured eye look with ease.  The only other colors which are optional are another color or colors of my choice and an eyeliner.

In this set of pictures, I used the two multi-flecked powders, taupe, and a dark brown for the eye look below.

Neutral Eyes

For the somewhat nude eye look below, I used the same two powders, taupe, medium brown and a brown eyeliner.

Nude Eyes

The two colors is all it takes to provide that luminescent-dimensional glow.  The taupe stabilizes to define the eyes a bit and the rest is just fun!  They are a pretty versatile set of powders which work great as a facial highlighter and the peach works great as a soft-diffusing concealer.

So, what do you think?  Did I do well in my franken pigments?  Or should  I kick the pigs back into the pen?
