By Request - Iman Wicked EOTD

After posting about the gorgeous silver/taupe mystery that is Iman's Wicked, I got quite a few requests to actually show the product on my eye. More than happy to oblige, I did this late last night (of course, I was up listening to Michael's all I can seem to do, okay?!?!?!?!) to share with you all:

What I did was pretty simple. First I used a tacky base like NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha all over the lid, just to the crease (usually I would use another base, Wet n Wild's Mega Eyes Cream Shadow, to prevent creasing. But since this was just for photographing purposes, I skipped that part). Then I lined my top lid with Sonia Kashuk's gel liner in black. I made a fairly thick line, then smudged the heck out of it, almost to halfway up the lid. It doesn't have to be pretty. I made sure that the line was really dark at the lash line, constantly re-applying a little more liner, then smudging it out again (It's a process but it's worth the work!). Then took the Imani Wicked powder and applied to my lid, then spread it out with a flat brush (MAC 242). I used a bit of Mark eyeshadow in Whisper to highlight, smudged some of the Sonia Kashuk liner on my lower lash line, then topped it off with Prestige's My Biggest Lashes Mascara.

I took a few pictures to show that it's not quite silver...and not quite taupe. It changes with what angle you look at it, and it's really gorgeous. I think the color stayed pretty true with this base, but I would be interested to see how it would look on a solid black base.

Just discovered your site via MBB. I love this eye, it's amazing! I am not the best with eyeshadow, so am trying to learn some tricks to spice up my basic look!

I live in the East Bay and it was 100 at my house so I feel your pain from this horrific weekend!
