So I’ve seen a handful of eye shadow correspondences floating around, but in my opinion, it felt mostly like regular color correspondences, which is definitely valid and useful. But like a blue liner, navy smoky eye, and a 80′s feeling shimmery blue shadow are all very different but the same color. I tried to base this list off more common eye looks, like styles vs the colors in the look.
Smoky eye - seduction, fire, seduction, power, desire, strength. Bronze and other metallics bring celebration & new beginnings. Brown relates it more to the earth and stability and protection. Black corresponds to self-confidence, power, and rebellion.
Day-time smoky eye - it’s much softer than your standard smokey eye. Can be associated with hiding or blending in or comfort and stability.
Shimmery - happiness, friendship, healing, & self love. Highlights the softer and positive correspondences of whatever color.
Sparkly / glittery - celebration, transformation, & psychic abilities. Can related to rebellion & creativity if styled less conventionally, like using dark larger glitters.
Matte - security, grounding, endurance, & material gain. Matte can be the longest lasting formulation with the some of the strong color pay off, so it would work the best to strengthen and add power behind any color correspondences.
Cat eye - seduction, romantic and self-love. If more dramatic it also relates to courage, power, and self-confidence.
Colored liner - for the most part, I’d say use your color correspondences, but a couple colored liner looks I think have become more significant in makeup. White liner - youth, energy, & productivity. Teal & blue liner - friendship, happiness, summer, & water. Glitter & metallic liner - transformation, growth, & celebrations.
Tight lined - subtlety, truth, loyalty, strength of self.
Actor Bill Nighy and writer Sarah Phelps give a preview of the BBC’s upcoming adaptation.
It’s an English-country-house suspense thriller in the time-honored tradition,” Bill Nighy says of Ordeal by Innocence, a three-part television adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel, following last year’s The Witness for the Prosecution and 2015’s And Then There Were None. It will appear this Christmas on the BBC in the U.K. and early next year on Amazon in the U.S. The story is set at Christmastime, in 1954, and Nighy stars as Leo Argyll, a gentleman and an amateur Egyptologist. Nighy was first attracted to the project by, he explains, the “brilliant script, the director, the cast, and the period, and I’m keen on the genre generally.” He continues: “A large part of its appeal was the period—how much our relationships and social structures have changed, and the nostalgia and curiosity we all feel for what happened 60 or 70 years ago.”Co-starring is Anna Chancellor as Rachel Argyll, a perfect wife to Leo and mother to five adopted children, who is brutally murdered. “It’s a rather cruel Christie for Christmas,” says writer Sarah Phelps. “A nice murder, twisted deviance, and savagery—it makes you realize you quite like your own family!”
“It’s about what kills her, not who,” Phelps says, adding that “women had become weaponized postwar—they were what we’d been fighting for, the perfect hearth, home, family … but Rachel kept a dark secret.” Executive producer James Prichard, Christie’s great-grandson, echoes Phelps: “Everything’s perfect on top, but underneath the water everything is chaos. What I love is that it is really subversive, an incredibly screwed-up family at Christmas.” Nighy concurs: “All families have their ups and downs, but this one, bloomin’ hell!”
Director Sandra Goldbacher was looking for “an All About Eve tone, darkly glittering old-style glamour and snappy one-liners.” As for the viewers, Nighy says, “I have a vision of every family around their TV arguing about who’s done it, because the audience will confidently suspect all the characters at some time during the show.” A perfect Christmas feast, then, and there are six more in the pipeline.
*Matthew Goode and Eleanor Tomlinson play Philip Durrant and Mary Argyll in Ordeal by Innocence. They were George Wickham and Georgiana Darcy in Death Comes to Pemberley, which was shown during Christmas on the BBC in 2013.
