Me and Jo gots to talking a while ago, and Jo shared a sad story about a cherished eyeshadow, recently shattered to dust. And then I saw this video by Enkore. And while it’s too late for Jo, it may help one of you save your fave make-up one day…
Here’s me and Jo at the Mary Kay party last week. Jo’s demonstrating another tip from Karyl – after applying a light base colour eyeshadow, apply dark eyeshadow in a ‘V’ around your brow bone, from outside corner to middle of you eyelid. And then blend, blend, blend.
btw if you wanna join Mary Kay to earn extra moolah just contact Karyl here (look at bottom of that post). Until end of February, joining fee is $99 (usually $229). Karyl is the loveliest lady ever, and she’ll be happy to chat to you about it.
My local Farmer’s had a clearance cosmetic rack, and I found a fabulous Napoleon Perdis eyeshadow in ‘Indian Rose’ for only 10 bucks! (down from $34.)
I’ve been wanting a bright pink eye shadow for a while and spring is a great time to start experimenting with colour.
Here I packed the pink shadow onto my upper lid, blended some purple into the crease of my eye, and light pink on the brow bone below my brows. Then applied the pink to lower lash line with a fine tipped brush.
I also put some white pencil liner on my lower water-line so that the pink didn’t make my eyes look tired and red. (The one I have is Maybelline and I recommend it for your lower water-line to brighten your eyes.)
A while ago at Make Up/Over Monday, we decided that we’d set ourselves the challenge of looking different. What this translated to was that Rachel who normally doesn’t wear much makeup at all got the full on loads of bright eyeshadow ala me, and since I normally do my makeup very loose and smudgey, Amy applied mine neat and straight out of Making Faces by Kevyn Aucoin, in the style of “Temptress”, modeled on Barbara Streisand. It was a learning experience for everyone involved!
