While reading my favorite fashion blog (Keiko Lynn) over the weekend, I got the idea of Makeup Mondays. Keiko is amazingly talented and take beautiful pictures. Me, not so much! But nevertheless, I wanted to share some makeup ideas with you on a regular basis so why not Makeup Mondays?! 🙂
Today I wanted a natural makeup that would enhance the green in my eyes.
So here I am with the makeup on. As a foundation I took a pinch of N1 and blended it in a little blob of oil-free lotion. On my lips I am wearing our lipstick in the colour CFA (bonus points if you know what it stands for! :)) and a little bit of a new lip glaze in a colour called Pink Snowflake. These, and more, will all be added to our website this week.
Very natural as you can see. You can hardly see it. I will try to be a little more adventurous in the future! 🙂
I used Right On eyeshadow as a base. It is a light peach that will just even out the skin tone and make the shadows last longer.
Then I applied Dovekie, a shimmery purple/gray, with a dry brush all over the lid and up in the crease and lightly under the eye.
Now I took the slanted eyeliner brush, dipped it in a drop of water and applied Partridgeberry along the lash line. Partridgeberry is a deep cranberry and the red in this shadow really brings out the green in your eyes (if there is any green there to begin with of course! :))
These were the brushes I used:
The crease brush. Perfect for applying eyeshadow in the crease and for general shading and blending.
The eyeliner brush. The slanted tip makes application a breeze!
Oh, and did you know that the protective sleeve the makeup brush comes in is made out of corn starch? It is 100% biodegradable so you can just put it in your compost!
I hope you enjoyed the first Makeup Monday! If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know! 🙂
