Trend Inspired: Neon Eyeshadow
A second big trend this summer is neon u’rything!
Often combined with neutrals to make it more wearble.
*ding* figured that might also work on the eyes!
I absolutely love neons.. maybe it’s the 90’s kid thing.
Any other 90’s people out there that agree?
This whole shebang got me back into some perfecly kitschy 90’s music as well. :D
And Naomi just reminded me of this Daze one!!!
Did you listen to those as well?
Anywho! The big star of this show is my Sleek Acid palette again, but this time I tried using it in a more wearable way.
I combined two fun neon pops with a pretty shimmery lid.
I hope you like the outcome! It sure made me feel all perky.
So I tried to take some shots outside to show you the colors under the sun but ehh..
I almost flew off of the balcony with all the wind. >_<‘
What’s that on your face?
1) Prime and base
MUD’s face primer works excellent but make sure to test it before you get one.. a friend of mine got a big reaction to it all over her dolly face. :(
Then a white base on the lid with Kryolan white Supracolor which I of course forgot to photograph. It’s dark now so i’ll add it tomorrow!
2) Even base and shimmer
Catrice’s 02 Discreet Artist went under the brow and in the crease!
And then a shimmery beige from the Catrice Absolute Nude palette on the middle of my lid
3) Orange pop
4) Pink pop flicked out
Some more Acid!
After that I dusted some more shimmer all over the lid, including over the other colors, to soften up the neon..
5) Tightline and Mascara
With a stubby brush and Catrice Gel Liner I colored my top waterline and wiggled some liner in between the lashes as well.
Then the teeniest little bit went between the bottom lashes and on the lower outer corner.
Of course mascara to set the lashes off against the brights!
The little bird is putting on gloss hehe! This is Hema’s lipgloss in… I can’t see a number.
It’s the coral shade in any case!
I’m sure a clear one would look the same though.. it doesn’t look like it transfers any color.
And that’s iiit!!
I hope I succeeded in making a wearable daily look!!
