Trend Inspiration: Pastel Eyeshadow
I thought it would be fun to feature some spring / summer 2013 trends on here and how I would incorporate them!
Fingers crossed it’ll be somewhat inspiring or interesting.. ^_^
Let’s kick off with pastel eyeshadows!
They’re not exactly flashy and can therefore be a little draining.
Aaand I feel spiking it up with darker colors can help – a lot!
A smoked out bottom lashline got my vote but just lining the top will work too and keep it looking fresh!
To avoid chalkiness a cream base for the shadow to grab onto can do wonders. Wonders!
What’s that on your face?
1) White base
I used that Gosh eye pencil in white again, on the lid now, but wouldn’t recommend it! It did crease extremely quickly.
Creamy white alternative come to meee, I summon theeee!
2) Pastel lid
The Coastal Scents 88 matte palette has some lovely pastels! Picked this green for the day. ^_^
3) Highlight and crease
Wet n Wild Brulee under the brow and on the inner corner!
Then a light Taupe from that same 88 matte palette lightly in the crease for some definition, the pastels sure aren’t going to give us that. :D
Ahum, you don’t need to go as smokey as that.. tightlining the eye, or a nice thin line over the top lashline would look super duper nice too!
Fresh and elegant, just enough contrast to lift up the pastel.
I decided to go smokey because… no work means make-up playday! ;)
Catrice gel liner all around!
And then some black shadow to smoke out the lower lashline.
Oh right! And mascara. :D
