[[ 'Spellbound' ]]
'Spellbound' was a happy accident...I started off with a deep, purple wine eyeshadow and intended to mix a smidge of Sugarpill 'Lumi' into it. However, a whole load of 'Lumi' fell in to the jar and I ended up with this gorgeous shade! Soft lilac with aqua and green duochrome - in some lights, it still looks deep wine. Amaazing!
[[ 'Cadence' ]]
I started with a soft yellow-green duochrome, then added a silvery peach and a pink-white duochrome. 'Cadence' is such a unique colour! In person, all of the duochromes are really evident, but it's soft enough to use as a highlight shade for the cheeks. Yellowy, cool toned peach with a soft pink duochrome and a hint of green.
[[ 'Jaggy Snake' ]]
I wanted to create a deep brown, so I started by mixing two complimentary colours (orange and blue) to give the initial brown shade as a starting point. Then I just kept flinging in more eyeshadows until I was happy with the colour! Dark red, dark green, turquoise, gold, duochrome yellow-green...
[[ 'Gypsy King' ]]
Finally, I fancied a shade which I could wear on lazy days. Those days when you just want to fling on some colour and go. I mixed a soft, golden brown with a duochrome white-orange, duochrome white-gold and a strong, bright gold to achieve 'Gypsy King' - it's such a soft and gorgeous colour.
It was so much fun and I really love the results! This is also a fab way of using up any empty jars you might have lying around. I think I might buy some empty jars myself, so that I can use up the eyeshadows I have in sample baggies...
+10 cool points to anyone who knows the music references in the names!
