Switch up your eye makeup – Try these ideas!

30 Sep

Do you start off your makeup routine with a deep sigh and think to yourself ‘well, here we go again’.  Okay, that’s no fun, and makeup might as well be fun…I mean, there are so many options out there and so many colors and looks to inspire!  We might as well make the most of it and feel dynamite when we walk out our bathrooms in the morning.  Sometimes it gets a little boring doing the same ol’ makeup look day in and day out.  A simple switch to your eye makeup can make all the difference in your mood and your overall appearance!  I’ve put together three quick and fairly simple eye makeup looks for you to try.

The Ombre Eye:  The ombre look has been all over the place with hair color.  Why not try it with eye shadow!  Apply one color shadow at the base of your upper lash line and blend upwards just above your crease to fade the color.  Be bold and pick a perky color such as sky blue, royal blue or magenta…and if we’re not feeling all that adventurous, try a neutral such as navy blue (as seen in the pic below), eggplant purple or a shimmery baby pink.

The subtle Cat Eye:  Using a liquid liner can be intimidating and is typically the option to choose with a cat eye look.  For something easier and more subtle, try using eye shadow instead.  The colors to pick here are black, dark grey or navy blue.  Using a thin liner brush, apply shadow lining base of upper and lower lashes only at the outer corners of your eyes.  Applying an eye primer under your shadows will help products stay on muuuuch longer.

Unexpected Color:  I am seeing a lot of metallic shades for the Fall.  Metallic doesn’t have to mean intense.  It really depends on the color you choose.  If you opt for a dark metallic grey, the intensity factor goes way up and if you opt for a light silver, your look will be more subtle.  If you’ve never played with metallic shadows before, I’d start with the lighter colors first.  Maybelline color tattoo eye shadow is a great bang for your buck at only $5-$7 buckaroos and comes in a variety of light and bold color options.
