I always love the bold and dramatic eyeshadow. I follow a few different makeup artists on Instagram and love to see what they come up with and what colour combo’s they choose.
Unfortunately, most of us can’t or are not allowed to wear such looks at work or school. Over the years I have done some things to add that subtle pop of colour. Over the week I filmed four ways I like to add some colour to my everyday makeup.
I’ll explain each look and products used. I will follow it up with the video to show you exactly how to achieve each look.
1.) On the corner
This look I used the e.l.f Cosmetics Mineral Eyeshadow in Outdoorsy. Its a nice evergreen colour. I apologize the picture does not do it justice.
I started by using e.l.f Cosmetics Pressed Mineral Eyeshadow in ‘Beauty Queen’ on the brow bone and ‘Lunch Break’ in the crease. I used a round shadow brush to make a ‘C’ with Outdoorsy and blended it well with an all over shadow brush.
2.) Under Colour
(tee-hee under-cover under-colour)
This look I used The same neutrals in the same way as look 1.
I then used e.l.f Mineral Eyeshadow in ‘Flirty’ on my lower lash line. In order for this to stay I used the N.Y.X Jumbo eye pencil in ‘Milk’ and blended with my finger prior to applying the purple.
As an optional step, you can line your waterline with a purple liner. I used Avon Glimmertick in ‘Plum’
3.) All-Over Lid
This look is probably the easiest, In my opinion. Starting off you want to do the same steps with the neutrals on your brow bone and crease as step one.
Next I used the 120 Color Eyeshadow Palette 2nd Editionby BH Cosmetics. I used the colour on the lower tier, fourth row, second from the bottom. Sorry there are no names.
Once you apply this to your lid make sure to blend it well with the crease shadow.
4.) All Lined Up
This one is my fave. I absolutely love this colour and love lining my eyes with it.
As with all of these looks start off by applying your neutrals as per step one.
Then I used Get in Line Hook Up Liquid Waterproof Eyeliner by Mark in Deep Aqua to line my eyes.
When Lining my eyes in a colour other than black or brown I tight-line my eyes. I used the Maybelline Gel liner. It is the best I’ve ever used…so far.
Without further adieu, here is the video with a more descriptive explanation on each look.
