Deep Smoky Green EOTD from Rouge Bunny Rouge

I thought I’d go for something a bit different, I used Blackpepper Jay as a lid shade and put loose glitter pigment in Spun From Sunny Seawater all over it, giving me a nice deep smoky green. I used a bit of loose glitter pigment Sleeping Under a Mandarin Tree in the inner corner, Devotion Ink in Anthracite Essence to line and Spun From Sunny Seawater on the lower lash line.

  7. Do you use a primer? For some reason the RBR shadows set in my crease after two hours :( according to the official web-page they should last all day... what am i doing wrong, it looks so perfect on you! xxx

  8. Hi Sam,

    I do use a bit of Too Faced shadow insurance and my RBR stay true to colour with no creasing from about 6:30AM,until I take my makeup off (about 7:00PM). It might be worth a try, as seems a real shame if they are creasing on you :( If you do try it, let me know if they last better x

  9. Hey Replica, thank you so much for your suggestion! I'm gonna try to get my hands on the primer straight away and let u know how it works for me! Yay, there's hope... :)

  10. oooh, I looked at the ingredients of those primers and they're packed with silicons, which I don't like at all... is there maybe another way of stopping them from settle into the crease? I tried to powder my lids before the application but that didn't work.
    I'm so sorry for bothering you!

  11. Hi Sam,
    No bother at all, what powder did you use to prime the eye, maybe it wasn't mattifying enough?
    I don't know the ingredients but you could try a cream shadow as a base, like a MAC paint pot, or a Bobbi Brown one, I think the new shade "Shore" is meant to be good as a base, but haven't tried it myself x

  12. Those are great advices, thank you!! I tried to use another powder and that already helped a lot!! I'm gonna look out for 'shore', tough, sounds very intersting :)

    It seems an exciting time for RBR, more people are discovering the beautiful brand and its great its becoming more available like on QVC.
    I just looked on your site and I love the way you did the swatches, so creative!
