Pacifica Smolder Eye Lining Gel…

One of my favourite products at the moment is this Eye Lining Gel from Pacifica. I use it a lot as a cream shadow all over the lid for an instant soft smokey eye, or as a base for other powder shadows. I also just smudge it along and into the lashes to add intensity to the eyes. You can create a sharper line with it too, however I prefer to smudge it as I find it lasts longer.

It comes in three shades – from the top Tahitian Pearl – a pearlized green, Anchor – a bronzed brown and Midnight – a deep navy blue. Anchor is my go-to colour at the moment, it has a soft gold glitter through it which you can’t see so much in the photo. I use it as a base to create a gorgeous brown or gold smokey eye or just on its own for a softer look. I apply it with a brush and buff it into the lid, you can build the intensity and go darker – build it in fine layers rather than one thick layer as I find it can crease. I don’t mind it creasing a lot of the time though as I like that lived in look for a lot of things. Take it under the eyes too but again blend it in, so it stays where you want it; it is a creamy texture and application is really smooth, but don’t apply too much or it will move.

Here is an example of the Anchor on the gorgeous eyes of Rebecca Pearson, I used to create a very soft smokey eye.
