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 =)
