I hope you’re all having a great weekend! Mine has been awesome so far; Made tacos and margaritas with my girls on Friday night, went to a baby shower on Saturday, and spent the morning with my sister today.
I picked up Urban Decay’s 24/7 pencil in Stash a few weeks ago and didn’t get a chance to use it until this past weekend. The color is an olive green with soft gold shimmer and it goes on very smoothly on my eyelids and waterline. While thinking of ways to wear it, I remembered how many people have asked me about easing their way into using colors on their eyes that aren’t brown or black. It’s all about baby steps! Starting off with small hints of color let you ease your way into brights and test different shades without committing your whole look to them. Here are two ways to use Stash, one for the color shy and one for those that aren’t afraid of all out color.
Here’s how I use eyeshadow and liner when I just want a hint of color to tie a look together. I just lined along my lower lashes and smudged the color a bit before it set. You can also use neutral browns/greys/blacks on your upper eyelid and a bright color along lower lashes. A great combo that works on just about everyone is a bronze/shimmery brown on the upper eyelid and a bright purple along lower lashes; it brightens up your eyes without having the color take over.
For this look, I used Stash all over my eyelid up to the crease and along lower lashes and set it with Sumptuous Olive from MAC. Topping a liner with a similar colored eyeshadow helps the liner last longer and makes the color really pop. I took the picture outside to capture the shimmer :-).
How do you feel about bright eyeshadow?
