Here's the thing...there's no wrong way to wear your eye makeup. Makeup is about personal preference and expression. However, if you're a beginner or just void of where to start, doing your makeup can be quite the challenge. If that describes you, knowing the parts of your eye area and eyeshadow placement can be incredibly helpful. So if you're wondering how to apply eyeshadow, here are some tips for you.
Spring is officially here and with that comes some fabulously eye-catching makeup trends. Taking center stage this season are the eyes, adorned with sparkle, color, and some sexy smokiness. As you know, I love to do up my eyes. If you'd like to try the same, here are some tips and products to get you started.
Like I said before, there's nothing like Glamour Doll Eyes to make me love bright makeup again. This time I did something a bit more quick and easy with one color on the lid and another on the bottom lashline; the neutral color in the crease toned everything down a bit. Eye-catching but nothing over the top. By the way, I'm in love with Candy Floss; it's an amazing pink!
A new Milani product for 2012, the Illuminating Face Powders come in 3 gorgeous, silky-smooth colors. Priced at only $9.49 these multipurpose and multicolored powders can be used as highlighters, bronzers, and blushes. They're a great alternative for a lot of higher end, more expensive brands!
The "Night" how-to card from the Too Faced Natural At Night Palette was used to create the first of many looks I'll be doing with this product. A warm, brown smokey eye is always gorgeous for both day and night and these shadows from Too Faced make it totally effortless.
Founded by paramedical aesthetician Pauline Youngblood, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics is now a complete line, offering dozens of products in a comprehensive palette of shades with realistic skin tones and beautiful, natural finishes. Youngblood creates top-quality products that are innovative in both formulation and packaging.
Trying to get back into bright makeup...still. It's a bit difficult when I've grown so fond of my easy to wear neutrals. There's nothing like some Glamour Doll Eyes to get me back onto the swing of things though. Dollhouse, Candy Floss, and Feline Fatale make for a beautiful combo! If you haven't seen my eyeshadow swatches of these colors yet, definitely check them out.
This is something a little different from what I've been doing lately. It's something bright...something smokey...and something amazingly affordable from wet n wild. They're new, gorgeous Color Icon Eyeshadow Singles as all part of their 2012 permanent collection.
Sometimes I forget overlook certain products and forget how much I adore them. My MAC pigments, for example, haven't been used in ages. I have tons and because they're somewhat hidden in my collection, they get overlooked. Recently while shopping my makeup stash I decided to play with them and came up with this look...Melon, Pinked Mauve, and Heritage Rouge. Totally rekindled my love for MAC pigments.
I just posted 2 different looks on Twitter and my beautiful followers voted that this one be the first that I post here, so...here it is!
Sugarpill and MAC were used to create this simple but elegant spin off of the classic pin-up look. Sugarpill Tako eyeshadow is the most effortless matte white eyeshadow ever, while MAC Reflects Pearl Glitter (PRO) is a total must-have in my book. It's totally versatile and just stunning. I can't wait to see how it looks with other colors!
Here's another sponsored Glamour Doll Eyes haul for you all. I'm not really into the typical pastels that are associated with spring so I wanted to choose some bright and sunny colors that would be great for summer. I'm totally loving these ones!
