This weather has been really depressing of late and it looks like it’s going to stay this way 😦 So this morning I decided to cheer myself up the best way I know how… ..by wearing some nice colourful makeup 🙂
It’s easy to go for the usual tried and tested brown eyeshadow but if you get a bit brave you can wear some nice colourful eyeshadows and make your eyes really pop! Here’s what I used:
First, I patted MAC “Seedy Pearl” on to my lid. This is a lovely pinky/lilac shade of eyeshadow which is a really beautiful colour and has a slight iridescence to it.
Then I worked MAC “Twinks” into my outer corner, this is a lovely burgundy/purple shade and it goes so well with the pink. Now, I have to say at this point, that it’s important to blend it well otherwise you may look like you’ve gone a few rounds with Mike Tyson due to the purpleness of the colour!
Finally sweep MAC “Shroom” on the browbone and on the inner corner of the eye to highlight.
I lined my upper eyeline with Maybeline Black Gel Eyeliner and slightly winged it out at the end. And I also my lower waterline but you could leave that if you want. See the complete look below (and excuse my scowly face!):
These colours bring out blue or green eyes the most. Let me know if you’d try this on yourself? 🙂
