One & Done: Phoenix Awakens

I applied Phoenix Awakens (from On the Horizon) from lower lid to beyond the crease, and I didn’t have it as diffused as some might prefer. I wanted a little more definition in the shape as something different to try. 

There’s also Magellan’s Light (also from On the Horizon) on the inner tearduct and a little bit on the brow bone. I have Calming Presence on the lower lash line with a bit of Phoenix Awakens on the inner lower lash line.

One & Done: Heart-dog

Next in the one & done series, as I know many readers wear only a few eyeshadows in a look, so I kept that in mind when coming out with colors for each color story but also wanted to make sure I shared looks in that vein, too. 

This is Sydney Grace Heart-dog, from the On the Horizon palette, applied from lower lid all the way to the brow bone getting more diffused and sheerer toward the brown bone. I also had Flying High applied on the lower lash line for contrast.
