Creamy concealer and jelly-shine eyelids — courtesy of an unorthodox lip gloss application — were deployed by Nars artists to give a “modern medieval” look at the Rodarte SS13 show.
Adding gloss to the center of each eyelid is a flapper trick from the 1920s to add sparkle and depth to the eyes. While surely shiny, the way lip gloss or Vaseline travels makes it less than ideal for real-life wear. Adapt the trend with a newfangled eye gloss or shiny shadow applied wet for more gleam and less goo.
Apply concealer to clean dry eyelids to create a base; then swipe one of these all over the lid:

MAC 217 eyeshadow blending brush VS Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff brush
The MAC 217 is one of the most popular eye brushes in the world - the shape is perfect for blending out eyeshadows with minimal effort involved! It is a rounded, slightly fluffy eye brush with a ferrule that is pinched in flat at the base, creating a really unique shape. The MAC 217 costs $23
The Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff does all of the same things that it’s MAC dupe does! It’s expert shape and soft yet effective bristles create the perfect tool for blending. It even has the same white bristles and pinched ferrule. The only difference is that the CS brush’s bristles are slightly shorter than the MAC brush’s, making the whole brush a little more round. However it still performs the same! The Coastal Scents Pro Blending Fluff costs $5
