TIOT: White Eyes Part #1 Dramatic Looks

Hi, lovelies!! I'm so happy to announce that I finally have a new Try It Out Thursday post! The last one was three weeks ago (eek!) I had once hoped this would be a weekly series but these posts take too long to put together. Maybe one day it will be... Anyways, today's post features white eyes. This will be a two-part feature. Part #1 showcases creative and dramatic eye looks that can be achieved using white. I really wanted to post these first because I've been playing it safe on my blog lately. Part #2 will include some toned-down/neutral looks using white eyeshadows and liners. Part #2 will also include a full-face look and (hopefully!) a video tutorial. It will be published next Thursday. Enjoy and let me know which look is your favorite!
LOOK #1: Colorless Crease
When creating cut creases or accentuating the crease in general, the color that is most commonly used is black. Instead of darkening the crease why not try the opposite? Using a white cream product (MAC Chromaline in Pure White) and a thin brush, I created a "colorless" crease on top of a matte brown eyeshadow. By changing up the base color the possibilities are endless! A white crease will look good with anything.

LOOK #2: Milky Dark Chocolate
I wanted to stray away from the typical winged liner look so I went with the opposite of black gel liner. I paired a thick white line with brown and black eyeshadows to create a dramatic contrast. To create my white liner I used MAC's Chromaline in Pure White. The smoky eye was achieved using the NARS And God Created The Woman Palette (mainly the two darkest colors, Coconut Grove and Night Clubbing). 


LOOK #3: Colorless Crease v2.0
This look is basically a different version of look number one. I wanted to create a colorless crease with liquid eyeliner because, frankly, MAC's Pure White is a bit hard to work with. Liquid liner requires more precision and a steadier hand, but the result is cleaner and the line less fussy. To create the deep charcoal smoky eye I used Rimmel's Blackmail ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Pencil as a base and MAC's Plumage eyeshadow. 


LOOK #4: Reverse Marilyn
This look was inspired by the "Reverse Marilyn" makeup from Illamasqua's Human Fundamentalism campaign. I love Illamasqua's makeup artistry and I often take inspiration from them (like in one of my previous TIOT in which I recreated their Speckled Liner look). You can see a promo image from the campaign here. To me the color combination feels reminiscent of peacocks and ice queens so if you're ever dressing up as either for Halloween this is a great look for you :P The teal color is Inglot's 338 Eyeshadow.

  5. From an artistic perspective I love all of them and can totally appreciate switching up the darks for lights. From the perspective of a girl who plays with make up, I don't think I'd be able to pull this off, haha! I love the amount of effort you put into this post! The third ones is my absolute favorite of the 4 :)

  8. Wow, this is a beautiful post! I was just thinking of trying the Limecrime liners! MAC Pure White looks really bright, now I want to try them both. Haha!

    Look #2 is my favorite. I'm looking forward to part 2! :)

  9. I love how stark the white is! I've seen a couple of darker skinned girls pull of white winged liner very well. Its something I've always wanted to try, though I thought it wouldn't look so good on my complexion. thanks forvthe ideas, I especially like the first one!

  11. Oh my gosh Coco these looks are so amazing!! I would have never thought of using white like this... but I love the outcome! I think the last look is my favorite; something about the white popping against the teal is just so stunning :)

  12. RIGHT. I WANT THAT CHROMALINE. WHITE GEL LINER IS PERFECT. Or Illamsqua Scribe. Why, oh why, do you give me a lemming everytime I read one of your posts? (lol!) but seriously, I need to check out a MAC PRO store in NYC soon. The BF promised me that he'd go with me to Sephora and MAC PRO and Kryolan so I'm really excited for this summer! xx

    1. Haha! I don't find the Pure White super easy to work with but I've used it a ton anyways. I wanted Scribe for the longest time but I got Lunar Sea so I don't think I need 2 white liquid liners (although I'd love to have them both! LOL)

    1. From an early age (maybe 12 or 13) web and graphic design became a hobby of mine. It's self taught and I never really pursued it so I only know the basics but the knowledge has come very handy for blogging as of late.

  23. Wow these looks are stunning! I wish my eye shape were able to pull them off though :(

  24. WOW! Absolutely loved ALL of them! I can see why these take a while for you to make--there's a lot of work behind them. I love how you're always trying out new things based on your own inspirations because in the end, you inspire us. As I previously said, I loved all four looks, but probably my favorite one of all was look #1 because you did the opposite.. I had never seen white on the crease before. It stands out, it's different and it's beautiful. Way to go, Coco! x

    1. Thank you so much, Pat!! I know most people like to play it safe with makeup (understandable as looks like this aren't the most practical) but I love playing with makeup to create nonconventional looks. I know some readers love artistic makeup so I'm glad these posts can inspire them. Thank you so much for this comment <3

  30. Ahhh this post is amazingg. I would love to pull off white eyeliner like in the 2nd look but I think it would be a bit too much for the people who have to look at me :P The teal one is one I think I might try out because I actually have that exact shade. So creative! xxo

  33. Tomorrow I think I'm going to buy myself a white pencil liner to try this out. Maybe mix it in with some creamy black kohl liner. Just for kicks and giggles after work. I don't have the skill you have here! Very steady hand! :)
