EOTD: Sphinx Widow
Eyeshadow - November 10th, 2011

Copper and purple are fun colors to wear together, and I decided to up the fun factor by putting them over a hot pink base. I used Sphinx and Widow, two new colors from Detrivore Cosmetics, as well as Pink Prysm Spectrum Pot from Evil Shades.

First, I put down a thin layer of Urban Decay Primer Potion. Next, I patted Pink Prysm all over the lid, just up into the crease, but trying to avoid going much higher than that. Pink Prysm is a hot carnation pink with silver shimmer. The Spectrum Pots are a wax based pigmented eye color. They’re probably too sheer to wear alone, but make an excellent, slightly sticky, base for other colors. Pink Prysm is going to bring out the reddish undertones of anything you put on top of it. Sphinx is a satin copper eye shadow with gold sparkle. On it’s own it’s a lovely copper, and over Pink Prysm, it’s more reddish. I like it both ways! Widow is dark red satin eye shadow, like red wine color. Not purple, more of a burgundy. I really loved it over Pink Prysm, it brought out the red tones even more.

I’m wearing Silk Naturals’ blush in Tart Light, and Stila Lip Stain in Pomegranate Crush.
