dark, smoky eggplant

I do have to admit-even if my camera can handle the bathroom lighting, I can’t!  This came out much darker than I intended, though it’s still presentable.

      Thanks. It’s definitely a low-lighting kind of look. I think the darkness worked against it in natural light, though. Sometime in the next few days, I’ll probably play with toning this down. I’m not really sure.

    I like it a lot!Whenever I use eggplant I feel like I’ve been beaten up.

      When I use dark black, I look like that.

      I avoid matte eggplants on their own, since they can look that way. But layering a shimmery shadow, or frosty shadow, can give it a depth that makes it more distinguished. I like frosty colors, like MAC Vex, or MAC Swish, because the texture shows up, even layered over top, and can really mute a color that IS otherwise, quite stark. It takes a bit of experimentation really figuring out what shows up, and what doesn’t.
