Team Spring!


Natalie's WatermarkSince the weird Chicago weather is finally making sense, I’ve been inspired to create more Spring themed looks for my clients, now that we are actually having a Spring.

I love a bold eye like nobody’s business but I know for most women, the style is Natalie's Watermark Part 2sometimes difficult to own, especially for a daytime look. My model wasn’t entirely convinced that she could pull off her bright, bold, blue look but she trusted me completely (maybe because I’m her big sister)!

I used Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics pigment in Saturate, a lovely, shimmery, aqua color. Applying the pigment from the inner eyelids out to the center of the lids (both top and bottom) gave just the right amount of “bright” before I transitioned to a darker blue. I actually used a combination of three additional shadows from MAC and INGLOT to add depth to the outer lids and crease area. MAC’s Pro Palette Shadow in Atlantic Blue, mixed with INGLOT shadows in 70 (bright blue) and 493 (bright purple) added a better level of dimension. After lining her upper lids with Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Stargazer, I used MAC Smolder on the upper and lower lash lines, and Make Up For Ever Smokey Extravagant Mascara to complete the look.

Little Sis was very pleased with the end results, and I think I’ve managed to convert her to bright shadow for the daytime (fingers crossed)!

Until next time,

Tiffany
