Spring 2010 Trend: Candy-colored Shadow #2

14 Jan

I’m on a vibrant eyeshadow roll!  It’s been many months since I’ve worn blue shadow, so here’s a new look which I normally do with a MAC Fluidline Blacktrak base to make the blues more vibrant.  However, I think I prefer this softer look:

Brushes you’ll need:

– MAC #’s 214 (short shader brush), 217 (blending brush), 242 (shader brush), 222 (tapered blending brush), Small Angle Brush (263), and 116 (blush brush)

Products you’ll need:

– MAC Eyeshadows in Vex, Vanilla, Dazzlelight, Nylon, Fade, Zonc Bleu, Steamy, Strike A Pose, Atlantic Blue, and Plumage
– MAC Paintpot in Soft Ochre
– MAC Powder Blushes in Peaches and Pinch ‘O Peach
– MAC Beauty Powder in Joyous
– MAC Lipstick in Cherish

– Clinique Full Potential Lips lip gloss in  Peach Plump
– MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack

– MAC Technakohl Liner in Graphblack

Supplemental: – A brow-filling productMascara


[* Cover the entire lid from below the brow to the lash line with Soft Ochre using your finger.
[* Apply a mixture of Vex, Nylon, and Dazzlelight to hightlight the area underneath the brow bone (217).
[* To the inner corner of the eye and the entire lid under the crease, apply Fade (242).
[* Pack on a mixture of Steamy and Zonc Bleu to the middle of the lid extending above the crease, blending with Fade (222).
[* Apply a mixture of Atlantic Blue and Strike A Pose to the crease meeting up to the other blue shades and highlight colors, concentrating color at the outer V (222).
[* Create more depth and smokiness with Plumage in the outer V (222).

[* Line the lower lash line with Graphblack (242).
[* Line the lower lash line with a mixture of Plumage, Strike A Pose, and Atlantic Blue (242).
[* Line the upper lash line with Blacktrack (263).


[* Apply a mixture of Joyous, Peaches, and Pinch ‘O Peach to just outside the apple of the cheek, blending out toward the hairline (116).


[* Apply Cherish Lipstick to lips and Peach Plump lip gloss

Additional finishing steps: [Fill in eyebrows using MAC’s #208 Angled Brow brush and MAC Eyeshadows in Charcoal Brown and Espresso], [Tame unruly brows using MAC Brow Finisher in Clear], and [Darken lashes using MAC’s Plushlash mascara in Plushblack].
