This is a very dramatic eye shape done in very soft, pastel colors. While I’m not sure how easy it would be to wear this for the day, the overall look is at once doll-like, bohemian, and grungy at the same time.
I daresay this would be easier to carry off on those with mono-chromatic coloring (fair girls with fair hair, or darker-skinned girls with dark brown hair) as opposed to those with dramatic coloring (light skin, dark hair), but don’t let that stop you!
- You might want to arm yourself with a white base like NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk, and then apply that ALL over your lids and along your lower lash line, as this is a key thing for the look.
- 3 Shades used for this look: Pale lime green on the inner 1/3 of lids, metallic teal in the central portions, and then a soft luminous pink (just use a shimmery blush!) at the outer corners.
- You want outward angled false lashes if you’re recreating this look.
- You will need to use a black pencil along the top and bottom lashes and create a thick flick at the outer corners.
The cheeks are a barely there pink that you will need a blush slightly lighter than your skin tone to create, and for the lips, try a pale shimmery shell-pink lipstick.

Crossing Pirate Alley on a Yemeni Cookie Boat
The Bamadhaf Shipping Company in Aden is supposedly the only agency that can arrange passenger transit on cargo boats out of Yemen. Their building sits down a decrepit, graffiti-covered side street off the apocalyptic main drag of Aden’s Mu’alla neighborhood. When I arrived, thousands of gray bricks peppered the landscape in front of the building, remnants of an anti-government protest the government hadn’t yet bothered to clean up. A large red sign on a pole read, “Ha’il Walid Ha’il Martyr Street, the youngest martyr in the south.”
Two women in black abayas manned the Bamadhaf office. They told me their names were Salma and Naima. Salma wore sapphire blue contacts and spoke beautiful English. Cargo ships didn’t leave every day, she said. After a week of lingering around in Aden, I secured a spot on a ship bound for Somaliland, transporting a quarter-million pounds of cookies.
Berbera, the port I was shooting for, is no more like Mogadishu than Erbil is like Baghdad. It is the largest coastal city of secessionist Somaliland, entirely separate from Somalia: different currency, different government, different visas, and a wholly different respect for the rule of law.
The boat was called the Al Medina and was stocked with a $30,000 load of chalky Abu Walid Sandwich Biscuits. To get on board required the approval of Aden’s Port General. “He cannot say no,” Naima said. “He has no right to.”
The Port General received me in a bright windowed room on the highest floor of a building that looked like the bridge of a British schooner. He wore the complete naval uniform—all white with golden buttons. An officer stood by his side. After I pled my case, he thought for a moment.
“No,” he said, indifferently.
