Pencil Shading Technique Eye Shadow

Have you ever wondered what it'd be like if you used pencils to color your eyes? While that's possible, you need a brush to achieve the penciled effect. When I was studying Fashion Design, shading was part of Sketching, and we shaded with pencils & watercolors. I was very bad at it the first few times, but with practice I got better. Today, I thought I'd try it on my eyes with eye shadow.
I really really enjoyed doing it, and I think I might stick to this technique. 
I used only 3 products:
  • Beige eyeshadow (WOS) on my lid as a light base, a black eyeshadow (Crave)  for shading. Both from Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
  • An pointed eyeliner brush used like a pencil.
If you noticed the shimmery brow bone, I did a different makeup before this and maybe I didn't wipe it off properly.
If you want me to do a tutorial on this shading technique, let me know.
Happy Weekend, everyone! I should have been cleaning & mopping the house, but I played with makeup instead, so that's been postponed till tomorrow. Tonight, I'm just excited to watch Stoker and, of course, eat a lot of junk.
