EOTD: Arctic Goddess Smoky Eye

I recently mentioned that I attended Avon’s Arctic Goddess event to find out more about the new collection. In this collection is the main eye palette, also called Arctic Goddess, which I had hoped to show you in more detail in this post, however, I’ve lost the lead to my camera which means I’ll have to wait for the new one to arrive so I can lose that too, but hopefully download the pictures beforehand…

I have blue eyes which don’t really go too well with blue toned eye shades, therefore I tend to avoid them, but I really wanted to find a way to use this palette, so I decided to try and create a smoky eye.  In the palette there are four variants of blue (the picture below is taken from the original post about the event) so the top two shades from left to right are 1 and 2 and the bottom two are 3 and 4 for the purpose of this EOTD.

Quite simply, I used 2 all over the eye up to the socket, then I used a wet brush on 3 and blended it into the middle of the eye so that it joined with the original shade, but still showed a pop of colour.  I then used 4 on the socket and outer corner and under the lower lash line.  I used 1 as a highlighter which I took all the way up to the brow.  I finished with a line of L’Oreal Perfect Slim, 1 coat of Benefit They’re Real and Rimmel Kohl in Black on the waterline.

I think the key to this look is build it up slowly and blend! This is definitely a look I really like and the textures of the eyeshadows are fantastic, making blending an absolute breeze.  The Avon Arctic Goddess palette will be available from Avon in November, priced at £8.50.

*Palette was a PR sample, liners and mascara were purchased by me.
