Remember rocking blue mascara real, real hard? I sure do. The thing I loved most about blue mascara was the subtle yet electric effect that gave a natural look a little surprise. In wearing the black Eye Coal on the regular, I found myself missing that deep ultramarine look that takes sultry up a couple notches to hot dang. So guys....you know me right? I want something so I make it, then I love it, then I set it free. Lapis Eye Coal was thusly born.
Having the utramarine color in pot eyeliner form allows more diversity in application- line to smudge. That deep blue pop can be achieved by applying a little Lapis Eye Coal on the inside of your bottom eye lid with a super duper clean finger or make up brush. For more drama- and you know we all like a little drama sometimes- line those come hither eyes on up, applying face powder or white clay as a base for the Eye Coal to hang on to.
Channel yourself a little Sea or Sky God or Goddess! You know they are in there, wanting to come out!
Btw’s Lapis is a gorgeous, precious blue stone that Cleopatra used to get ground into her own version of Eye Coal. (Props Hannah for the art history gem)
Apply with a makeup brush for more defined Cleopatra looks. A tip dear friends! When applying the Eye Coal with a makeup brush first apply a bit of face powder or cosmetic clay to your eyelid starting at the base of your lashes. The clay/powder will give the Eye Coal something to sink into and will keep your liner on sharper and longer. For that mysterious smoky appeal, apply with a squeaky clean finger on the waterline of your bottom eyelid then close your eyes together hard to get the coal on the top inner lid and smudge the way you like.
