Everyday Eye | four

Sunday, 13 September 2015

For me, makeup is about finding small joys like a really well coordinated everyday eye look. I've been using one quite a bit recently (in an attempt to use up some eyeshadows!) which is just a little different but still very wearable. I like it because it adds a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral look.
Let's start with the base: the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded is a simple champagne-gold which suits many, many eye looks and doesn't alter the colour of the shadow you apply on top too much. Then, I absolutely pack Champagne from the Lorac Pro Palette over the majority of the lid. This is a very glittery, fall-out prone shade so I like to use a lot to build up the actual colour of the shadow on the lid. To blend out the edges, I use Taupe from the same palette in the crease which adds a nice neutral shadow to the eye.

Next comes the pop of colour. I use the MAC Fluidline in Phlox Garden to line my upper lash line. This is a beautiful orchid purple that I purchased from a limited edition collection last year. It's quite a light purple so it doesn't add a lot of definition. For that I layer a shade from the Revlon Photo Ready Primer + Shadow Palette in Watercolors to both set the Fluidline and add a darker defining line. I'm currently using the second colour from the top but any of the top three shades from the palette would work. I then line the bottom waterline with a nude liner and the lash line with a brown, smudged so it's not too heavy. Add a few coats of mascara and you're done!

You could really use any colour to line the upper lash line like a deep green or navy blue. I just love purple because it compliments my brown eyes.
