Face of the Day

quick and easy jewel eyes

February 28, 2016

This is one of those looks that seems a lot more complicated than it actually is. You’d be surprised to know how simple this was to create.

First, I drew a thick line of Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Maui Teal along my lower lid and blended it upwards over my whole lid with a brush. Then, I buffed MAC Eyeshadow in Vibrant Grape into the crease and blended it out with MAC Omega. To finish, I dabbed a touch of Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Solstice on the center of my lid and MAC Ricepaper into the inner corners. The last step was tightlining with Urban Decay 24/7 Eyeliner in Black Velvet and adding a coat of Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara to my lashes. 

And that’s it!

I’ve certainly seen much neater, and more complex versions of this look, but to me this iteration is perfect for days when I’m itching to wear something fun and colourful but don’t have a lot of time. I also skipped winged liner and false lashes in the interest of keeping it a little more casual and wearable, since I had a day of mundane errand-running ahead of me!
