Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Sand Dune

Milani’s Shadow Eyez pencil in Sand Dune

Posted on Saturday, at

Pale, and a wee bit patchy. This is more of an “effect” liner than anything else. I can imagine wearing it the same ways I'd wear highlighter eyeshadow, and getting some good results. Just be aware that if you want to wear it beside your eye, on the browbone, et cetera, you'll want to use a primer and possibly a light bit of makeup fixative spray.
