About Face: Santorini Tutorial

This is the look I did in my "Response to Rachel O" video. It's a purple cut crease with a little gold sparkle on the lid. I originally scrapped the look but I had a couple requests for it so I decided to go ahead and do a tutorial for it.


Stila Oil-Free Makeup in Shades D & G
Ben Nye Banana Viage Poudre Luxury Powder

NARS Concealer Duo in Custard/Ginger
CoverGirl Midnight Black Eye & Brow Makers Pencil
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Metal-X Eyeshadow in Material Gold
NARS Strada & Santorini Eyeshadows
CARGO Gold Eyeshadow (from Hands of Hope) palette
Sally Girl Peach Eyeshadow
Aziza Creme-to-Powder Foundation
E.L.F Gold Glitter (from E.L.F liquid eyeshadow trio available at Target)
NARS Night Fever Eyeshadow
LA Splash Crystallized Glitter in Renaissance
L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon Black
Stila Eyeshadow in Oasis

Smashbox Double Exposure Lip & Cheek Color in Speedracer

So all you need for your Metal X shadows is just Too Faced Eyeshadow Insurance? That makes things much easier. I heard people saying things like you should use something like a liquid last liner after it's dried completely.

Yep, that's all I used. But, I would say that you have to use a thin layer and pack the eyeshadow on over it help to set it. It might take some experimenting to see what works best for you. You might even want to try a cream or gel eyeliner under it so it won't budge.
