The Temptress is an homage to eastern beauty that was very en vogue during the 1930's with actresses like Anna Mae Wong (bottom left). It uses a black eye pencil on the top and bottom, white frosted eyeshadow, black mascara (which I decided to skip altogether), apricot and golden-yellow powder blush, flesh toned lip pencil, and glossy red lip color (the darker the better). The black eyeliner is 'winged' up and out by using a pointed sponge-tip shadow applicator. The white eyeshadow along with the winged liner work together nicely to create an eastern eye shape. The brows should also be brushed up to create a dramatic straight-across look, which can be a little difficult if you have a strong natural arch like me.
I used Maybelline Soft White eyeshadow, which I have to admit is a really old item (from the '80s or '90s) I never threw away and I'm glad I didn't since it really came in handy for this look. They don't make this exact shade anymore but it shouldn't be difficult to find a basic white shadow. I found Maybelline's Snow White shadow online, which should be perfect for the Temptress or any look in which you intend to reshape your eyes.
