Rihanna's eye recreated

Hi Everyone,

I found this beautiful pic of Rihanna on MUA (posted by a lovely MUAer) and I had to recreate the eyes:

My rendition:

Items used:
  • Apply MAC Soft Ochre as base (in hindsight I should have actually used a darker base like MAC Blacktrack)
  • Pack on MAC Twinks on lid (I applied 3 layers to build intensity)
  • Apply MAC Embark in crease and outer V
  • Soften it with MAC Saddle
  • Use any black kohl pencil and line the upper lid and waterline
  • Use Embark to smudge the kohl - reapply kohl and smudge with Embark again
  • Apply Bobbi Brown gel liner in Black to waterline and below waterline
  • Smudge below waterline with MAC Carbon
  • Reapply the Gel liner and smudge again (I did this 3 times to really create that "black black" effect)
  • MAC Solar White was used as a highlight
  • I have applied Ardel falsies in 124
