One Gold Shadow, Four Looks in Varying Intensities
I haven’t played enough with my gorgeous pan of Sephora Mono Eyeshadow No 3, aptly named Girls’ Night Out. And isn’t this what we tend to do? Pick up a beautiful shade and then hardly use it because it looks so dramatic.
Well in the “pictorial” below, I’m transforming the look from simple to dramatic in 4 stages, by I’m adding different brushes and shadows along the way.
Black liquid liner
Next essential step:
To Transform it into Look 2: Gold Lid
Apply black liner as before.
Flat eyeshadow brush
Then finish with black mascara.
To transform it into Look 3: Gold Smoke
Apply black liner as usual.
Additional item needed:
Matte brown shadow (I used Revlon Matte shadow in Rich Sable)
Pencil brush or small blending brush
Make sure to fade out the matte brown so there are no hard lines.
Then apply mascara if you haven’t.
To transform it into Look 4: Golden Eye
Apply black liquid liner as before.
Then, the additional item needed:
Charcoal or brown shadow
Finish with mascara if you haven’t applied it.
If you’re doing what I did and transitioning from a simple day look to a weekend look, to a sultry look, then to a dramatic party look, you can just follow the images in sequence and just build up the intensity.
Had a beautiful bride-to-be makeup trial yesterday. Nicola is getting Wed in October & has chose an autumnal trio-colour-combo for her eyeshadow. The bronzed Orangey Gold really brought out the Green in her eyes.
It nice when some of my clients opt for something complementary to their eye colour. Nic is a hairdresser so she’s familiar with the colour wheel.
For instance, if your eyes are Blue, you can wear Red, Red/Orange & Orange to really make your eyes pop!
Green eyes look bright when wearing Violet, Red & Orange.
Take a look at the wheel and give it ago at home.
New Shu Uemura Eye Products (and a Winged Teal Liner Tutorial)
There are some new Shu Uemura eye products out this month;
- Tsuya Skin Youth Infusing Eye Concentrate
- The s curler
- Tokyo Lash Mascara
and I’m giving them a more in-depth and hands-on test-run! Will walk you through the simple tutorial for this look while talking you through each of the items in turn!
1. Prepping the skin…
Tsuya Skin Youth Infusing Eye Concentrate:
This new fluffy eye cream is designed to work under eye makeup like a primer, so you don’t need to worry about it flaking and “pilling” when you apply things over it, or making your shadows streaky and patchy. The best thing is - it works like a primer under the eyes as well, so your concealer goes on smoother and lasts longer. Perfect for lazy girls who don’t like applying a separate eye cream and eyeshadow primer.
I’ll have to test longer to let you know if it has a noticeable tightening and lash-lifting effect
Because, why not?! ;)
