Colourful Eyeshadow

Hi everyone! How are you today?

Okay, I’ve been in a bit of a makeup rut lately, and have only been reaching for neutral tones and the odd green in my makeup collection lately. So today, I wanted to get creative and do something 100% pure colour. Good-bye neutral browns. Hello pink and blue!

As you know, I like to create looks here that are wearable. I very rarely do anything that I wouldn’t wear outside the house. I try to create things that people can easily recreate at home, and this colourful shadow look is no exception. It was so easy to do.

As usual I will list every product used, however, this post is mainly focusing on the eyeshadow.

Eyes

For my brows, I have done nothing really different to my norm. I swiped a bit of Revolution Pro Brow Powder in Taupe through my existing hairs and set them in place with my Revolution Pro Brow Mascara.

For the eyeshadow part, I used a combination of two palettes; Jeffree Star’s Jawbreaker and Mini-Breaker Palettes. I first took the shade ‘Good Morning’ to set my eyelids. This is the perfect shade to set my lids; I find Virgin is a bit too pale for me. In the crease I then took ‘Bubble Gum’ and built that up slowly to a relatively opaque pink, diffusing the edges to keep things nice and blended. I then built up a gradiant of pink to purple in the crease by taking ‘Foreplay@ and ‘Purple Punch’, blending them out quite soft in the crease.

On the lid, I first packed on the bright blue shade ‘Soaked’ with my finger, and blended out the edges slightly with a touch more of ‘Purple Punch.’ This blue shade wasn’t going to be visible in the completed look, I just wanted an opaque matte shade down to make the shimmer more dense and visible. The shimmer shade, ‘Oral’ is stunning when placed over a matte shade like this, and I also applied this with my fingers, blending out the edges with a clean brush.

On the lower lashes, I blended out a combination of ‘Bubble Gum,’ ‘Purple Punch’ and ‘Hot Fudge’ and kept this very diffused. On my brow bone, I used a touch of ‘Snack,’ using this shade for my inner corner too.

For mascara, I used the bright blue shade of Benefit’s Bad Gal Bang Mascara. It really looks beautiful when applied over a white lash primer; which I used the Smashbox Lash Primer.
