For this editorial, I wanted to be quite bold whilst keeping the look modern and wearable!
Creating the eye look was quite simple:
The main focus is pink eyeshadow on the lids, applied in a rounded, 60s mod shape and blended well around the edges. I complimented the pink with navy blue eyeshadow (as eyeliner). You may not be able to notice on camera, but the eye liner is actually navy blue as opposed to black.
Started off with a base on the eyes in a similar tone as the eyeshadow I planned on using: A pink eye primer/colour corrector (a tiny bit of it only on the lids) will not only help ensure staying power as you add liner but should make a difference in the opacity of your eyeshadow. Any eye base that works for you is perfect for this step.
I focused on two main shadows from the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette to give a hot-pink metallic effect: “Seize” and “Gossip”. There are so many different metallic/shimmery pink eyeshadows to choose from, these two were the closest to what I was going for.
For the liner, I applied a wet black eyeshadow and went over it with “Minx” to form a navy blue shade. I kinda just wanted some extreme contrast on the eyes so instead of using black I thought navy blue would make things pop.
There will be a post dedicated to my foundation routine but for now, I just made sure the skin was kept simple and mellow.
Definitely was experimenting with this look, but I think it just adds a vibrant element of fun to any simple outfit.
