Some of you may have gotten mail from Illamasqua, about the Sophie-I technique, which is sorta related to Illamasqua's pencil technique, skin sketching.
Anyway, this look is made to support S.O.P.H.I.E. Lancaster Foundation (if you're not familiar with it yet, go check it out. I think it's worth watching) and the look is created by the amazing Alex Box, and it actually comes with a picture tutorial!
I wanted to redo the look, so I took some tips from the tutorial, and did some things to make it more mine, but I included both my and Illamasqua's pics for you.

Next we blend, blend, blend:
Then the liner:
I then added some shimmer to lid with Illamasqua Pure Pigment Breathe:
As falsies I chose Marlliss #157 lashes:
