061312 EOTD: Color Blocking

4 years ago

  • Hey Lovely luuuxers!
  • 06/13/12 I normal dont were a lot of color on my eyes so I figured today Id do a little experimenting with color today since Im not doing anything. One of my favorite trend for the spring/ summer is color blocking. Ive seen few people do it with their clothing, but not so many women wear their eye shadows color blocked! I know that this look is a little out there with all the bright color, but I really like the look. Tell what you all think !

    Brushes used:

    Elf essential shader brush

    Elf essentials concealer brush

    Elf Essential Angled

    Sigma E30 pencil

    Sigma E40 taped blending

    Sigma E65 small angled

    Ecotools smudge brush

    Ecotools highlight brush

    Gabriella lip brush

    no name spool brush

    Products used:

    Bh cosmetics 120 1st edition palette

    Coastal Scents Camouflage Concealer palette

    Maybelline Colossal Volume mascara in black

    NYX jumbo pencil in milk

    ruby kisses liquid liner in shiny black

    Maybelline pressed mineral powder in dark 2

    NYX eyeshadow Dark brown


    Before starting on the eye make up I filled in my brows with a dark brown eye shadow using the E65. Then I applied a concealer two shades lighter than my complexion under my brow bone as a highlight.

    Next I applied a white base to my eye lid and lower lash line blending it into my brow bone highlight to create an even canvas using my fingers.

    With a shader brush I packed a teal blue color onto my lid not going past my crease area.

    Then using an angled shader brush I applied violet color into my crease area. When applying this color you want to apply the color in a j like shape dragging the color slightly into the bridge of you nose. You should have a small gap in between the crease and tear duct area.

    using the lip bush I applied an off white color with golden shimmer to the brow bone. Then with the crease brush I blended the highlight with the crease color to get rid of any harsh lines.

    next using the pencil brush I applied a deep plum color into my outer V and swept the color into my eye crease. Then using the same pencil brush I applied a matte black into my outer v to smoke out the look also applying it half way into my lower lash line.

    next with my smudge brush I took a forest green color and applied it into the area I left open near my tear duct. I also carried the half into my lash line. Then cleaning the brush applied a bright yellow into the center blending the colors together.

    after the look was finish a took my small concealer brush and cleaned up the edges of the shadow with a concealer that was my skin tone.

    then to finish the look I add liner and mascara.
