COLOR…. COLORFUL EYESHADOW, COLORFUL EYELINER, MIX & MATCH!
GO AS COLORFUL AS YOU CAN! HOW TO MAKE IT WEARABLE?
1. ALL YOU NEED IS TO START WITH A WHITE BASE! WHITE UNDERNEATH WILL AMP UP AND BRIGHTEN ANY COLOR!
HAVE YOU EVER BOUGHT A GREEN EYESHADOW OR PURPLE ETC, PUT IT ON, AND IT LOOKS DRAB? DOESN’T QUITE LOOK LIKE THE COLOR IN THE ACTUAL PALETTE?
OR HOW ABOUT NEON NAIL POLISH, YOU PUT IT ON IT KIND OF LOOKS TRANSLUCENT?
WELL YOU NEED TO START WITH A WHITE BASE…GET A CREAM BASED EYESHADOW, ANY BRAND, THIS WORKS BEST BECAUSE THE CREAMINESS WILL ACT AS A PRIMER AND A MAGNET!
THEN GO RIGHT OVER WITH DIFFERENT COLORS IN DIFFERENT SECTIONS DEPENDING ON THE LOOK..HERE ARE SOME MORE:
FOR THIS, YOU JUST TAKE SOME CREAM OR MAKEUP REMOVER ON A QTIP AND WIPE A CLEAN LINE AFTER APPLYING THE EYESHADOW OVER THE WHITE TO CREATE THIS CRISP CLEAN LINE.
I JUST DID A PHOTOSHOOT WITH JJ DURAND WITH HELLO ME FILMS AND CREATED A COUPLE LOOKS LIKE THIS AND IT WAS SO EASY. I EVEN USED THE MULTICOLOR PALETTE FROM NYX, THE ONE WITH ALL THE SMALL POTS AND A MILLION BRIGHT COLORS!
2. YOU CAN EVEN CREATE A SMOKIER BRIGHT LIKE THIS LOOK, START WITH A WHITE EYESHADOW BASE INSTEAD (POWDER WHITE EYESHADOW) TO NOT BRIGHTEN YOUR COLORS SO MUCH, INSTEAD IT WILL SOFTEN, AND JUST LAYER, THERES NO RULE! ITS ONLY MAKEUP, GET CREATIVE.
3. CREAM PIGMENTS! THEY COME IN POTS IN ALL DIFFERENT BRANDS, THE LOREAL WHIPPED CREAM PIGMENTS WORK FABULOUS AND LAST HOURS! THIS YOU CAN JUST APPLY WITH BRUSHED OR QTIPS, AND REMEMBER, IF DOESNT COME OUT PERFECT, HUST CLEAN UP THE LINES WITH SOME FACE LOTION ON A QTIP…PRODUCT REMOVES PRODUCT, REMEMBER THAT TIP!
NOW GET OUT TO THE MAKEUP STORE AND TRY ONE THESE LOOKS…I DARE YOU TO BE DIFFERENT!
TOMORROW…WHATS NEW WEDNESDAY…
