sunset eye, with MUFE cream bases

Mixed feelings on this.  There’ll be a few rough pictures of the technique-specifically the cream bases. I tried applying a translucent powder over them, but was only so-so on the results.  Its probably better to just rush, and apply shadow over before it creases(these bases are REALLY creamy!) Ithas the exact masky-dry texture that is why I avoid using the rimmel powder on my face!  Definitely a bad product, in my opinion.

Overall, i love the way the bases bring out the colors, so i think my finished hibiscus eye will use the technique-just more precisely than these tests!

The reds come out much more than the pinks in photos–I think I’d prefer this look with a sheer red gloss, rather than the pinks I used.  I’ll play with that another time.

MUFE Cream base in Red-crease

MUFE cream base in Yellow-inner crease/duct

Blend MINIMALLY, apply Rimmel translucent pressed powder over, tapping not stroking.  This will remove some of the creamyness(i want to use a more translucent powder because I don’t care for this one)

MAC Paradisco-lower lid

Urban Decay Half Baked-inner lid/crease, blending above crease

MAC Sweet Lust-highlight

Buxom Lashliner in Leatherete-line upper lid

Urban Decay 24/7 in Zero-line lower lashline/waterline


MAC Brit Wit-contour, blending over cheeks

MAC Well Dressed-over cheeks



MAC Sweetie-over hue

These first pictures are of the eye cream bases.  Note that the blending is imprecise, though still overblended in the yellow-I need to redo this using a brush instead of my finger.  Finger is fine for all over lid, but this needs precision. Also, the powder over it gave them a chalky look and dulled the color.

And now on to the finished result!
