I’ve been dabbling with warm shades of colour on my eyelids for some time now. Not only do they help my eyes to look more awake, sparkly if you will, but they also blend beautifully into my pale skin for days when a more understated look is desired. I have been wearing this look non stop for the past few months and I quite often receive a few questions on what i’m using therefore I figured it made sense to jot it all down.
This look takes around 3-5 minutes out of my 10 minute everyday make-up routine and is super simple. I start by using ‘Mythology’ from MAC all over my lid, it is a beautiful pink lustre shade that is very on trend this season all thanks to Pantone’s ‘Rose Quartz’ colour of the year. I then go in with ‘Texture’ a matte orange / terracotta shade that blends seamlessly into the crease, adding definition and a nice warmth.
I will then take the gold shade in the Maybelline ‘Expert Wear Sunlit Bronze’ palette and highlight the inner portion of my eyelid. For eyeliner I am still loving to super smooth, gel liner from Rodial and I use a deep brown shade which is in-keeping with the warm tones used on my lids. I will then line my upper lash-line and bring down a small winged flick by using the Maybelline ‘Lash Stiletto’ liquid liner, the nib is so precise and the formula, super inky black.
My mascara of choice at the moment is a budget option from Collection and is for lengthening, as i’ve mentioned before the formula is irrelevant, it’s all about the brush and this brush is a very sturdy, plastic piece with little raised bumps to help distribute the product amongst your lashes, clump free of course. If I am feeling like a little more drama is required I will use the Maybelline ‘Lash Stiletto’ mascara to add extra length and volume for a more fluttery look. And there we have it, my simply everyday eye make-up…Looks especially sass-worthy on blue eyes.
