Chanel Ombre D’eau series in Bayou #30 is a rich cranberry-violet, which looks great smudged on the lid. I usually add a black eyeliner and an ivory on my brow bone. It’s an easy look that gives a thoughtful impression.
I work this with quick, definitive movements and very few in number. You have to work quickly before it dries. However, like a good pastry dough, if you ‘over-do’ it by smudging and working too much, it ruins the effect. Less fuss is better.
