Makeup can be so boring, and i'm a real bore in my day-in-day-out routine of it. I ran across the image of Lindsey Wixson a few days ago on tumblr, was really interested in the idea of a shaped shadow on the eye, and tried it out.
There is definitely something interesting in the 3-dimensionality of the eye and how the shadow is not really just a rectangle- I liked how it looked completely different when your eyes were closed vs. wide open it would almost look normal.
In my test i tried a bit of color, but to my dismay. Maybe for night but even in a dark green the idea was too heavy of an eye for me. May try out in a super saturated hue- let me know if you give it a try and what color works best for you!
