you smell nice
I was intrigued by these delicate, flowing characters, some of which look like suspended underwater organisms. They were created by the mysterious ‘Abi’ of Cambridge, NY (no further profile listed or found).
This sort of lettering seems to go hand-in-hand with mystery. Last year Stephen Coles mused on the origins of this graceful mark. It was later identified as the Fin International logo by a helpful Type Worship reader.

the hunger games tutorial-
1. Prime the entire lid as well as the bottom lash line. Sweep a gold from the upper lash line to the crease.
2. Blend a brown just above the crease. Focus more on the outer crease for added depth and lift. Bring that color down to the lower lash line.
3. In the pocket separating the gold and brown, place a red shadow and blend only slightly. If over blended, it could create a very muddy color. Bring the red down to the lower lash line.
4. Add a highlight below the brow and to the inner corner of the eye. Darken the brown and red as needed.
5. Line the upper and lower waterlines with a black pencil liner. Add liquid liner to the upper lash line, and complete the look with mascara and lashes if you choose.

Match Your Wings!
Winged liner is elegant, classic, and simple… but can be a pain to do! Ever create a perfect wing on one eye and can’t seem to match the other? Here’s a quick tip to save you time getting your wings just right!
1. Prep your eyes. If you’re choosing to leave your lids bare of eyeshadow, prime them and apply a loose powder on top. This will help your liner have something to grasp on to.
2. With a light brown shadow (I’m using black for demonstration purposes!), sketch out your wing. A great reference is your bottom lash line. Follow the natural curve of your eye and extend it. Do this to both eyes. Look straight into a mirror and if they’re even, you’re good to move on to the next step! If not, simply wipe the shadow off and start again. A light shadow is much easier to remove than a gel or liquid liner!
3. Lightly fill in where you’d like the rest of the liner to go.
4. Line on top of the shadow with a gel or liquid liner. For a softer look, leave some of the shadow peeking out on top. For a sharp look, make sure all of the shadow is covered by your liner. For extra staying power, set the liner with a shadow in the same color. Done!
