Makeup Monday Volume II - Playing with Evil... Shades

I love loose shadows.  I love the looks you can achieve with them.  However, I can't stand the mess.  I end up with loose powder everywhere.  It's why I gave up on Bare Essentials about two years ago.

This morning I wanted to play with my makeup - you know what I mean.  You push yourself to see what you can do, but you probably wouldn't wear it out of the house!  I really wanted to use the Evil Shades loose shadows I had purchased some time ago  My inspiration for this look was based on a book I just finished, Nefertiti by Michelle Moran.  Cosmetics were used in ancient Egypt just as they are today, and they heavily focused on the eyes.  

On the lid: Evil Shades Double Barrel - Gun Metal gray with multi color shimmer.
Crease to brow bone:  Evil Shades Wanderflower - Dark teal with beautiful explosion of multi color shimmers.
To define the outer v and inner corner:  Evil Shades Madd Hat
Inner corners:  MAC Nylon
Brows:  Buxom Lashliner in Suede
