Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Looks best on skins ranging from pale to tan but still looks acceptable on the darker skin tones. These were my first serious stab at eyeshadows so I'd really like to hear what you think of them!

They look great! I have about two eyeshadow sets that I use, so I'm always glad to have more!

Lovely on the light skin tones. Great colors. On the dark skin, the top of some shadows (purple, charteuse, magenta) looks rather too light for the skin. I wonder if you blended the shadow color with the light skin color? I would recommend blending the shadow color with complete transparency, so you get an alpha gradient instead of a color gradient. Then it should look better on darker skins, green alien skin, etc.

They look wonderful on dark skins. And I would love to know who made the dark model's eyes, they're great.
Definitely grabbing this set.
[edit] Found they eyes. They're yours!

I basically just like to play uglacies.

Yay for shadows that work on dark skins! Only had a gothic set so far.

I'm a real succer for eyeshadows so I've seen a lot. And I'm happy to tell you that yours are some of the best I've ever seen. Your colors are stunning and the eyeshadow doesn't bring color to inappropriate places. Don't know how to express it else. ^o^

I like how they fade up towards the lashes. And the colors look amazing. I love how some of them look natural enough for everyday. Thank you so much! :D
