Following Fashion Friday's post on jewel tones,
how-to on jewel tone makeup and inspiration for all
The cool side of makeup tones;
Emerald, Amethyst, Sapphire
Working with complimentary hues to stay true to our color wheel,
let's start with
Amethyst lids for green peppers
Sapphire on brown, a complimentary combination
Color wheel neighbors, Green (Emerald) on baby blues,
create an alluring finish
Now the How-To:
Always start with a primer to keep your product in place
Add a wash of color, lightly or heavy depending on the desired look,
to the lids.
Phase the color up to the crease, making sure to blend well!
If you are looking for more intensity, further pigment can be added to the outer
crease of your eyes.
Depending on eye shape, a super sweet glitter
can by applied to the center of the lid
This will highlight the eye, drawing it forward.
This is a great trick for someone with deep set eyes
If your a glitter gal, hold a cotton pad under your eye to catch the fallout.
Although fallout was intentional here,
imagine cleaning this up right before
heading out the door for your Christmas Party;
best to use a cotton pad.
If it's drama you're after, line your water line with black pencil,
saving the top lid for cake liner
Add a little flare to your lashes with a soft curl,
finish with a generous amount of mascara
Pair any of these looks with a knockout lip of
Ruby tints and hues
Remember to use a liner to avoid any bleeding
So stray away from your safe zone this Holiday season,
Dabble in on-trend jewel tones
