SPRING BRIGHTS


Spring Brights for the evening.

Instead of Neon lips go for a deeper shade. More grapey.


For a bolder look, line the eyes, make sure to wing it at the corners.
With an angled brush, line the lower lid with a black shadow followed by a turquoise shadow.

Go For Magenta Lips.
Line the lower lash line with the same shadow colour.
Line the waterline with White liner and apply 2 coats of Mascara on the top and bottom lashes.

For the highlight on the brow bone I decided to combine 2 colours. One is an extremely light shimmery turquoise and the other one is a white shimmery shade.

Apply a black shadow and concentrate on the outer V to define the eyes.


The Eyes are starting to look better.

Apply a medium shade on the centre and the darkest shade on the outer corner of the eye.
Blend. Trust me. :)

I went for a thicker but lighter brows for this look.
Prime the Eye Area with a Neutral Colour such as MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre
For this look I decided on Turquoise instead of green as seen on the cover.
Start with the lightest Turquoise on the inner lid.
PLAY WITH COLOURS THIS SPRING
The Inspiration for this Look.

Last year around December, I wrote about seeing the Versace lady having a make under and instead of seeing the traditional sexy smokey eyes, the supermodels walked down the runway with light lilac eyes.

Pastel eyes is just one of the beauty trends for Spring/Summer 2010 and since I have done Violet Peepers already (which is great for Brown Eyed belles) I decided to write about wearing bright colours for your eyes. This was also inspired by a breath taking Vogue Paris cover :) just tweaked it a bit so it can compliment my dress for an event that I had to attend that evening.

So, if you are feeling a little bit adventurous, read on and try this look for Spring :)

This post is for Kay :) Have fun this Spring.
