I wanted to give my 40-pan Freedom System palette some more attention, so I came up with another all Inglot eye shadow look using colors I haven’t tried before. When I was looking at my palette to determine what colors I wanted to use, my eyes were drawn to four colors that were next to each other — aqua/turquoise blues and greens. The end result turned out to be a colorful spring look! This would also be fun to wear on Easter.
I’ll be cheering for Cal to win the 114th Big Game at Stanford Stadium today. Although Stanford is ranked in the Top 10 and Cal is once again the underdog, I’m always decked out in Cal blue and gold — including my makeup! I came up with this very quick makeup look that’s simple but does the job of showing off my school spirit. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliners in “Radium” (bright blue with silver sparkle) and “El Dorado” (yellow gold with gold sparkle). GO BEARS!
Mattify! Cosmetics focuses on creating products for oily skin. I recently received five of their Long Lasting Sparkling Eye Shadows and Mattify! Bronzer for review. These and other Mattify! Cosmetic products contain Kaolin clay, an ingredient known for its oil absorbing quality. I incorporated all the products in a makeup look. Check out the swatches and my thoughts on these items!
I didn’t buy any of the new Mineralize Eyeshadow Duos that MAC released in May 2011, but I own a few of the previous ones. My favorite of the duos by far is still “Sea and Sky”. Along with a marbleized sky blue color, “Sea and Sky” comes with a gorgeous medium-to-dark blue that has such an intense, rich color. This is the blue featured in this makeup look. The steps are similar to my technique for adding a pop of color to your eye shadow if you want to follow along.
Blue and orange are opposite from each other on the color wheel, making them a pair of complementary colors. When used together, complementary colors really stand out. I chose bright shades of blue and orange, but muted shades will stand out as well since two complementary colors provide the greatest chromatic contrast to each other.
