PICTORIAL | 'All things bright 'n colorful'

Good evening

Here’s the pictorial for ‘All things bright ‘n colorful’. You can re-create with these colors exactly, you can also recreate with other colors….depending on the colors and shades you have. I just want to show you how i got the look, but i must warn you, there’s a lot of blending involved. If you don’t blend thoroughly, the colors will just sit separately like water and oil ( you gerrrit?)


So i used 3 different colors for this look…Pink, blue and green (the green was sooo gorgeous by the way), and there wasn’t any eye contouring done at all. Here are the pictures……. Step-by-step:
 

Eyebrows are done, so i taped the sides of my eyes and applied Tara's eye primer all over my lids. I used the tape 'cos i wanted a sharp edge

Then i applied NYX eyeshadow base in skintone over the primer....i needed the colors to pop with all vibrancy!

Then i applied a pink blush from my 'pink sprint' palette in my crease first. I needed a matte pink eyeshadow, and since i dint have one, i made do with what i had.

Next, i applied a blue eyeshadow under the pink and blended them into each other.

Next came the green, and remember......blend!

Then i highlighted my browbone with a shimmery light eyeshadow which you prolly cant see in this pic

Then i line my upper lash line like so

Next i lined my waterlines with my 'Black velvet' pencil. Notice that i also lined my lower lash line a little bit from the outer corner.....and oh, the tapes came off!

Finally, i fixed my lashes and my purple contacts. Gorgeous!
 Fin!

In other news, this weather ehn! Personally i like it, but for the kids, it’s bad, bad, bad! Rainbow had noisy breathing for the past few days, so i took her to the hospital today and there were lots of coughing kids there for treatment. This weather is bad! I can’t wait for it to change again ‘cos i can't bear Rainbow getting cough again….i’m still traumatized by the last coughing episode she had. She’ll be fine anyway.

If you re-create this look, be a dear and send to me, i’ll really love to see. If you don’t want me to post your picture here, trust me i won't. A lot of my readers are shy (lol), they don’t allow me post their pictures on my blog. Eeeees nor good ooo! Anyways, have fun playing with your colors.

Besos.
