Get the Look: Bright Eyes For Spring

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.
