Duochromatic Smokey Eyes with Virginia Olsen Minerals Eyeshadow in Chameleon

Jordan Liberty of givefoodface in YouTube is one of my favorite gurus of all time. I love his professionalism, techniques, and how short yet detailed his videos are. And I personally think he's really hot! ;-) One of my favorite looks by Jordan is his Duochromatic Smokey Eyes. I love how it looks simple yet fabulous and the duochrome eyeshadow is just so beautiful!

Recently, I bought four Virginia Olsen Minerals eyeshadows and as I was checking out my new babies, I realized that the shade Chameleon, which is one of my favorites, is somewhat the same as the one Jordan used in his video. Because of that, I decided to do a look inspired by his Duochromatic Smokey Eyes. I did not copy the look per se and I used different technique but yeah, I got the idea from him. :)

Here's the look:

I am absolutely in love with VOM's Chameleon! I think it's one of a kind! You should really check out their eyeshadow collection. I just love the two-toned effect and the color itself.

I have to say that this look is one of my favorites among all of the looks that I've created because it's simple but looks edgy and like it took you quite a long time to finish but really, it's easy to do. Here's the tutorial:
