Bewitched pigment is one of the most unique pigments I have seen in a while and I have been anxiously looking for a way to wear this color. It’s best described as a medium blue-purple with sparkles. You can wear this as a wash of color on the lid for a smokey look, or intensify the effect by mixing it with a setting spray and applying it wet. I chose to go with a wet application in this look as it’s such a strong combo. I combined it up with another purple from the MakeupGeek line, as well as a dark gray eyeshadow.
What’s also amazing about this pigment is how it can transform other eyeshadows. I layered it over Stealth in this look (a dark gray eyeshadow) and it really pulled the purple tones out of that shade. While I was playing around with it, I also swatched it layered over MakeupGeek’s Nautica (a dark blue) and it pulled more of the blue tones out of Bewitched. Such a versatile pigment! How would you wear this color?
- Apply an eyeshadow primer; I used one from NARS in this look
- Apply MUG Stealth eyeshadow onto the outer half of the lid and blend it inwards
- Pack your brush (I used the MAC #239) with Bewitched pigment and spray with a setting spray (I used MAC’s Fix+), then apply to the inner half of the lid until it meets Stealth
- Let it dry and then layer the dry version of Bewitched pigment over Stealth eyeshadow
- Line the lower lashline with Bewitched pigment
- Apply MUG Wisteria and MUG Simply Marlena (layered) in the crease
- Blend out the harsher edges of the crease shade with a matte eyeshadow that matches your skintone (I used MAC Blanc Type)
- Deepen the outer v with a black shade like MUG Corrupt
- Line the eyes with your choice of gel eyeliner; I used MUG Rave (a silver-gray liner)
- Apply a set of false eyelashes if desired; I used ‘Coy Cutie’ from InkyMinky.com
