Pencils at the ready…
Ever since the 1940s, when Greta Garbo picked up her black pencil and created the iconic illusion of depth on her eye socket line for the Hollywood cameras, make-up users across the world have searched for the tools and technique to create that show-stopping moment.
Thanks to the clever makeup artists at Illamasqua the search is now over. Illamasqua School of Make-Up Art, has developed a simple yet brilliant solution to tick all the boxes of time, practicality and space saving – the Skin Sketching Technique.
Skin Sketching enables you to define, contour and highlight your face all using Illamasqua Medium Pencils.
The Secret of the Skin Sketching Technique: Neutrals
1. Smudge Medium Pencil in ‘Vow’ (nude apricot) all over the eyelid to reduce redness and blemishes and create a soft nude base.
2. Draw Medium Pencil in ‘Flinch’ (soft charcoal) along your upper socket line and under the eye for definition.
3. Scrawl Medium Pencil in ‘Honour’ (rich brown) on the outer third of the eye and on your bottom waterline for sexy smokiness.
4. Blend the three colours together with Blending Brush I.
