Lingering in Twilight - Shiro Cosmetics Look

A friend recently told me about Shiro Cosmetics and showed me the website and I couldn't believe how beautiful the colours were! And the collections! A Hunger Games collection?! In my element...
I spotted 2 colours that I loved and my friend had both of them so she gave me little samples to try.
Here's a look featuring Lingering in Twilight from There And Back Again: A Hobbit Collection!
Lingering in Twilight is explained on the website as being 'A twilit forest: blackened blue and green tones with slightly metallic shimmer.'
I think it's one of those colours which looks amazing in person, but is quite hard to capture it on camera! It was soo glittery but it just didn't want to show!

To start this look, I use ELF eye primer as my all over eye base, and then started to create my smoky look using Naked, and Buck from Urban Decay Naked palletes in my crease, ready to smoke out my main colors. Next I took Paperbag and then Noir (from Sleek ultra matts V2) to further darken the crease, focussing on the outer half.
I ran my No.7 soft kohl eyeliner in black all over my eyelid to create a cream base for my Lingering in Twilight pigment. This will give it a fantastic base colour and make it extra long lasting. (Different colour bases will create different effects with the pigment, so test some out on your hand first.) I used a matte white eyeshadow as my brow highlight and also used L I T under my eye to carry on the smoky look.
My eyelashes as always are from Eyelure
I love the reflective green and blue glitter in the shiro cosmetics pigment! It's so gorgeous! In the little sampler baggie it just looks like a very dark green, but as soon as its swatched it comes to life! Absolutely beautiful! I definitely recommend checking Shiro Cosmetics out, I was so glad my friend told me about it!
Well I hope you like my look! I have another one featuring shiro cosmetics ready to be posted soon!
