We don’t know about you, but we can’t live without a little POC (pop of color)!!
What’s a more easy and quick way to add a little color to your life, then a super simple smokey eye with a colored liner!? It’s a perfect look for spring, and a perfect way to remind our selves that winter is behind us!
We started off with a favorite pallet of Andie’s – Eye Shadow x Nine – Burgandy Times Nine (maccosmetics.com, $32). We took the top right color and used that as out blending color, and used a fluffy brush to start to create the shape you want for your smokey eye.
As you can see in the image above, that lighter color works really well as a blending color on Victoria – if you have a lighter color, you can use a light color to blend, and if you have a darker skin tone, use a darker color!
We really fluffed that eye shadow onto her lid, creating a really nice base for us to bring in a darker eye shadow. We moved on to the very middle color in the pallet.
We brought that in to darken the crease before moving on and bringin that all along the lid. We also added the lightest color in the pallet on the inner corner of her eyes.
This is definitely a darker sort of smokey eye, but it is using so few colors, that it makes it really easy to add on to the look you are already wearing, or spice up your look last minute.
For the finishing touches, take Modern Twist Kajal Liner in New Marine (maccosmetics.com, $17) and brush that along the bottom lash line – this is something where you can really play around on the thickness! Make that POC as big or as little as your want!!
With the Mordern Twist Kajal Liner in Grey Tide (maccosmetics.com, $17) line your waterline (image below). What this will do is just add a bit of freshness to the look, and also an awakeness to your eye!
Finish off with your favorite mascara and a lip color of your choice (we picked a nude color), and your done!
We hope you enjoyed this look, and watch this space for new posts every Monday and Thursday!
