I have been pinning eyeshadow looks and tutorials on Pinterest for YEARS but I realized that I haven’t actually tried any of the looks out…so, I’ve decided to challenge myself, by selecting my favourite pins to discover:
If I can create this look with my existing makeup.
If this look works well on my/a different eye shape and/or colour.
How helpful the step by step images are (if any).
What tips can I provide my readers to help you achieve this look.
No matter what skin tone or eye colour you have, purple is flattering on everyone! That’s why I selected today’s challenge, which I have entitled “Purple Pizzazz”.
On a day-to-day basis, I do wear touches of purple to line my lower lashes or add a pop of colour on the outer eye corner…but nothing this intense.
So although I was confident that the colours would look lovely, the big question was “would this be wearable” or just something artistic to look at online…I’d never know unless I gave it shot – so I did!
I have been pinning eye makeup looks and tutorials on Pinterest for YEARS but I realized that I haven’t actually tried any of the looks out on myself yet…they are just sitting in my “Beauty Board” collecting dust (or whatever is equivalent online…). That’s no good!
So, I’ve decided to challenge myself, over the next couple months, by selecting my favourite pins and trying them out to discover:
If I can create this look with my existing affordable eye makeup?
If this look works well on my/a different eye shape and/or colour?
How helpful are the step by step images (if any)?
What tips can I provide my readers to help you achieve this look?
On to today’s challenge…
Today’s challenge is the look to the left entitled “Date Night Eye Shadow” (although, for me, it’s a spring/summer look that you could wear day and night).
I thought it was the perfect challenge to start with – a quick and easy look with a pop of colour using only 4 shadows + liner + mascara. There are clear step by step images displaying both brush type and shadow colour.
I was optimistic that this would look lovely with my eye shape and colour as the model has brown eyes like me (plus, purple looks beautiful on all eye colours)!
