I just wore this look over the weekend for my parents’ anniversary party. Being it was for an event, I strayed away from my basic neutrals and wanted something a little more dramatic.
- With the eyes, I started off with a light shimmery lid and then smoked out the corners with an indigo blue eye shadow. Specifically, I’m using MAC’s “Plumage” in the corners which is the only dark blue eye shadow I even attempt wearing. It is a warm indigo blue and compliments my skin very nicely. As a bottom liner, I layered a thick black pencil in the lash line followed by a liquid teal liner. I LOVE colored eye liner on the bottom, it visually makes the eyes look lighter than they really are!
- I wanted soft, warm cheeks and picked a pastel coral. The coral also contrasts with the blue tinted eye makeup being that orange and blue are opposite colors on the color wheel.
- For the lips, I never like anything too light unless there is a hint of brightness which is why I went for a light, bright baby pastel pink color. It adds a subtle brightness to my face but not too light to the point where it washes me out.
