today i decided to wear some bright, summery colors! it's been a little dreary out, so i thought i would brighten things up with these blues and purples! the shadows are from Lancome's Bronze Azure Summer: 2011 Color Collection, which i am absolutely in love with! I used the shadow quad Molten Shore...it is absolutely beautiful, especially for women with bright blue eyes.
to start, i applied a thin layer of Clinique's Touchbase for Eyes...this is a really great shadow primer that makes every color stand out even more (i use Canvas). for the shadows, i first sweep on a thin layer of the lightest shade all over the lid, from lash line up to the brow. next, a generous layer of the bright blue all over the lid (making sure to not go above the crease). the dark brown color goes next, using a thin layer on top of the blue to give it a smokey look. lastly, use the sparkly purple shade in the crease and slightly higher, making sure to blend everything together.
i applied a semi-thick line of black liner, using Lancome's Le Crayon Kohl in Black Ebony. this liner is amazing...you get really great pigmentation, even lines, and nice and smooth application. i lined from corner to corner on the top, opening the eye up with lots of definition, as well as through the lash line on the bottom. i followed that with a thin line of Lancome's Artliner in Noir for even more definition. the last step is a few generous coats of Dior's Diorshow mascara to the top and bottom lashes, and i'm set to go!
