Makeup For Ever posted on Facebook a variety of looks created with the Technicolor palette. I was immediately drawn to a peach and bright blue combination that looked like a simple way to venture into colorful eyeshadows.
When I wear blue eyeshadow, I often pair it with a sable blending shade in the crease and espresso eyeliner on my waterline. But MUFE’s placement of peach over the inner 1/2 of the eyelid and white as a highlight were something I wanted to try for spring. Not owning the Technicolor shadow palette, I used Urban Decay Shattered for color, Sin as my neutral, and theBalm Sassy to highlight. I opted to add Urban Decay Glide-On Pencil in Uzi to deepen the lower lashline, waterline, and outer corner of my eyes.
The look could have been done with a nude cheek and lip such as NARS Madly and NYX London, but I thought pink-coral shades would give it more flair for spring. Keeping the eye soft really makes this look wearable for day time and the blue can be built up to achieve a more vivid look.
