Skin Sketching with Illamasqua

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.
Therefore, the Illamasqua School of Make-Up Art has developed a simple yet brilliant solution to help you get the look and tick all the boxes of time, practicality and space saving – the Skin Sketching Technique. What is Skin Sketching I hear you ask! I asked the same thing.
Skin Sketching enables you to define, contour and highlight your face all using Illamasqua Medium Pencils. Choose from the two categories of neutral or vibrant tones to create a wide range of looks, from subtle contouring to bright graffiti for your eyes! To me it seems a mix of eye-liner and eye-shadow in one.
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.
Here's a video tutorial: 

Alternatively, experiment with Illamasqua’s array of Vibrant Tones to tap into Summer’s colour-blocking brights trend. I have love of bright colours, like anyone who has seen my nails posts will know. I am all about the bright right now so these colours are great!
