If you visit my Facebook page some time last week, you’d know that I’ve been playing with a lot of cream eye shadows lately. I really want to try my best to use them up, or at least put a dent in them before they dry up 😉 And you know what? I’ve been loving it! There’s no unsightly glitter fall offs on my face, and these cream eye shadows blend like a gem!
Here’s a day time look I created using MAC paint pots in Bare Study, Groundwork and Indianwood. Erm, excuse the few strands of fly away hair.
First off, I used a fluffy brush (MAC217) to apply Groundwork on my lids, sheering out towards the brow bone. Groundwork is about 2 shades darker than my skin tone. Then, with a denser eye shadow brush (MAC249), I pat on Bare Study on my lids. Bare Study is a shimmery pale beige that looks beautiful on any skin tone. With a pencil brush (MAC219), I smudged Indianwood, a shimmery bronze on my lower lash line to brighten up the area. I did not use an eye liner for this look. I curled my lashes and layered on Benefit’s They’re Real mascara for a more natural effect.
Finished look – barely there but brightened eyes. For the rest of the face, I kept everything neutral and sheer because I was going for a minimal look. If this is too washed out for your taste, I’d suggest putting on a brighter lipstick and blush. You can even add a brown eye liner to this look. In fact, a green eyeliner will make the whole look pop =)
