If you’re anything like me in real life, there are only so many occasions where you can wear eyeshadows to without being asked, “Wah, are you going on a date/to some fancy dinner?”
So, what should one do to prevent wastage of all the lovely eyeshadows you have?
One way is to lighten the tone of the colors you’re wearing, or the other is to introduce color to your lower lashline. Well, I’ve since discovered a way to use color on the upper lashline too, yay!
Step 1: Apply your eyeliner as usual. I went for a slightly extended cat-eye. You can make the line thicker so that the colors will show up better, too!
Step 2: Layer a little bit of white onto the inner corner of the eyeliner, make sure to stay within the line.
Step 3: Fill in the middle 1/3 of the line with a a medium blue.
Step 4: Complete the ends with a blacked blue.
Step 5: Line the waterline with a bright, electric blue eyeliner and top off with an eyeshadow of the same color (more or less). If you want this look to be a little more dramatic, why not use another color altogether? You could make it more neutral by using a skin-colored eyeliner there too, which will make your eyes look bigger.
Step 6: Define your brows and add mascara to both upper and lower lashes.
Step 7: Sweep a little pink blush onto your cheeks and put on your favorite pink lipstick and you’re done!
See, with a little patience and a steady hand, you can wear a little more color subtly without feeling as though you’re putting more “effort” than you should!
