I'm ashamed to admit I've devolved when it comes to bold eye makeup. When I first started getting back into makeup I would reach for the most vibrant greens, punchy pinks, the most outrageous oranges. Now I stick to neutrals. A lot of it has to do with my bright lip kick, but I've seen plenty of girls rock bold eyes and lips.
Another thing I have been neglecting are my indie mineral eyeshadows. Realizing indie make up existed opened a whole new world for me. I have made so many friends by our love of makeup, specifically indie makeup. But you definitely have to be a smart shopper when it comes to the indie market. It's akin to a game of mine field. You have to tread carefully.
This weekend I played around with bold eyeshadow shades to see what I could come up with. I'm not super fond of it, but for someone who hasn't done a bold look in a long time, it's a start.
I used Milani felt tip eyebrow pen for my brows and a NARS eyeshadow primer to start. I used Silk Naturals Chocolate Twinkle as a base. I placed Fyrinnae Sleepy Hollow all over the lid, and Aromaleigh Athena in the crease. I deepened Athena by using Aromaleigh Big Bang in the crease and blending upwards. Lastly, I used Concrete Minerals Wicked as an inner corner highlight and on the brow bone. I added Sleepy Hollow and Big Bang on my lower lash line and lined with a black eyeliner. I used one by Covergirl. I finished off with a coat of Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara on my top lashes and that's it!
Blue is a particularly hard shade for me to wear. I'd never worn Sleepy Hollow, and wanted to see how it looked on me. It's a brilliant blue, very bold...I'm just not sure I have the proper makeup skills to do it justice.
Do you like the color combination used, or would you have tweaked it?
