Eye Color Intensity ((Beauty Blog Round 1))

June 25, 2012

*BLUE EYES*

STEP-BY-STEP APPLICATION:
1. Apply silvery light blue (first shadow color shown in picture) to your whole eyelid, including your V-shaped crease (inner-most part of eyelid). This will be your base color.
2. Apply turquoise (third shadow shown in picture) to the outer half of your eyelid; slightly going beyond the crease of your eyelid, but following its natural shape. Blend with the silvery light blue color so there is no definite line between the two colors.
3. Take a thin eyeshadow brush and apply cobalt blue (middle shadow color shown in picture) to the outer part of your top lash line and trace your eyelid crease line with the brush. Blend this color with the turquoise you applied in Step 2 so that there is no definite line on your eyelid crease.
4. Under the faucet, wet your thin eyeshadow brush and use the turquoise color that you used in Step 2 on your lower lash line. Do not extend this color for more than half of your lash line.
5. Apply a smoke-grey colored eyeliner to your top lash line, slightly extending the line out from your lash line. Use this same eyeliner on your inner lower lash line (the “wet” area).
6. Mascara.
7. Ta da!
***** Don’t be scared to use blue eyeshadow on your blue eyes! It will really make them POP!

*BROWN EYES*

STEP-BY-STEP APPLICATION:
1. Apply goldy light brown (second shadow color shown in picture) to your whole eyelid. This will be your base color.
2. Apply shimmery ballet-slipper pink (first shadow color shown in picture) to your V-shaped crease (your inner-most eyelid), and curve it down slightly to your inner lower lash line.
3. Apply royal purple (third shadow shown in picture) to the outer half of your eyelid; slightly going beyond the crease of your eyelid, but following its natural shape. Blend with the bronze color so there is no definite line between the two colors.
4. Take a thin eyeshadow brush and apply deep magenta (fourth shadow color shown in picture) to the outer part of your top lash line and trace your eyelid crease line with the brush. Blend this color with the royal purple you applied in Step 3 so that there is no definite line on your eyelid crease.
5. Under the faucet, wet your thin eyeshadow brush and use the royal purple color that you used in Step 3 on your outer lower lash line. Do not extend this color for more than half of your lash line.
6. Apply a dark purple colored eyeliner to your top lash line, slightly extending the line out from your lash line. Use this same eyeliner on your inner lower lash line (the “wet” area).
7. Mascara.
***** Purple brings out the golds in your brown eyes!

*GREEN EYES*

STEP-BY-STEP APPLICATION:
1. Apply yellow-gold (second shadow color shown in picture) to your whole eyelid. This will be your base color.
2. Apply shimmery champagne (first shadow color shown in picture) to your V-shaped crease (your inner-most eyelid), and curve it down slightly to your inner lower lash line.
3. Apply bronze (third shadow shown in picture) to the outer half of your eyelid; slightly going beyond the crease of your eyelid, but following its natural shape. Blend with the yellow-gold color so there is no definite line between the two colors.
4. Go over the bronze color with goldish light green (fourth color shown in picture). Blend with yellow-gold, like in Step 3.
5. Take a thin eyeshadow brush and apply forest green (fourth shadow color shown in picture) to the outer part of your top lash line and trace your eyelid crease line with the brush. Blend this color with the colors you used in Steps 3 and 4, so that there is no definite line on your eyelid crease.
6. Under the faucet, wet your thin eyeshadow brush and use the goldish light green color that you used in Step 4 on your outer lower lash line. Do not extend this color for more than half of your lash line.
7. Apply a deep green colored eyeliner to your top lash line, slightly extending the line out from your lash line. Use this same eyeliner on your inner lower lash line (the “wet” area).
8. Mascara.
***** The yellowy golds, bronzes, and different shades of greens will bring out every fleck of color in your eyes. Almost makes them look cat-like!
